What is The Giver Quartet about?

Written by American writer Lois Lowry, The Giver Quartet is a young adult series consisting of four novels. The story takes place in what appears to be a utopian society but is really a dystopia.

The Giver is the alias of the Receiver of Memory, a man who has to bear the memories of the past the community turned away from. Described as an aging Elder, he is one of the most important figures in this society, due to his responsibilities, but holds almost no power.

When the story begins, the young Jonas has been chosen to be the new Receiver of Memory, and he discovers that his community is deprived of color, music, and more.
