Jonas lives in a society where supposedly everything is perfect. However, when he gets the job of the Receiver of Memories, he begins to think otherwise. The job of the Receiver is to inherit all of the memories from the past. These memories help him realize that the community that he lives in isn't perfect and that he is the only one who can change it for the better.

I really enjoyed this book. It is not the kind of book that I would normally read, but it opened my eyes up to a whole new genre. It really makes you think about new concepts, and you will be left puzzling over the ending.
