『1984』『멋진 신세계』『시녀 이야기』의 뒤를 잇는 또 하나의 SF 명작. 모두가 잃어버린 감정을 찾기 위해 나서는 열두 살 소년의 이야기.

모두가 똑같은 형태의 가족을 가지고 동일한 교육을 받으며 성장하는 곳. 이곳에서는 열두 살이 되면 위원회가 직위를 정해준다. 열두 살 기념식을 앞둔 조너스는 마음이 조마조마하다. 그런데 조너스에게 내려진 직위는 "기억 보유자". 과거의 기억을 유일하게 가지고 있어야 하는 사람이 된 것이다. 선임 기억 보유자는 이제 기억 전달자가 되어 조너스를 훈련시키기 시작한다. 조너스는 효율적이고 평화로운 사회를 이루기 위해 희생된 진짜 감정들을 경험하게 된다.

Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

앞으로도 영원히 사랑받을 스테디셀러
외국도서 MD 유서영
출간된지 20여년이 지난 지금까지, 그리고 앞으로도 영원히 사랑받을 스테디셀러. `기억전달자`의 세계는 이상적인 공동체를 위해 철저히 통제되고 있다. 공동체 내의 규범 뿐 아니라 감정을 표현하는 언어까지 엄격히 골라낸다. 균일한 인간을 `만들어 내는` 시스템은 현실 세계와도 비슷한 점이 있어 시사하는 바가 크다. 중학교 수준의 영어면 어렵지 않게 읽을 수 있다.

(영어로 쓰다 길어져 지치는 바람에 한국어로 못 씀.)

It took almost one year to finish this book. It’s not because it is hard or difficult to read but because I didn’t have much time to read it. Maybe the biggest problem could have been that it wasn’t so interesting to me. That’s why I didn’t spare time for the book. Even I had heard some spoilers(?) about ending, so I didn’t expect something breathtaking in this book. Not until 20 chapter did the novel seem to start the story. Before the main character’s action against the community, the story is like just explaining the world. It looks like a dystopia, but the ending is not. And, I like it.

The community wants to avoid all the negative things. So they removed all the terrible memories and gave them to the Giver. It’s like the giver is a prisoner, or sacrifice though they call it to be honored. How selfish they are. Maybe the customs was already established long time ago, and now nobody think a bit that there is something wrong in their rules. Sometimes we should double-check the validity as individual and a member of the society.

  • The Giver shrugged. “Our people made that choice, the choice to go to Sameness. Before my time, before the previous time, back and back and back. We relinquished color when we relinquished sunshine and did away with differences.” He thought for a moment. “We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others.” (120)

 

The main keywords are decision, memory and emotion.

I don’t anticipate him to live happily or experience something more terrible there, but I am sure that he would be satisfied with his choice. At least, he could make a decision and do what he thought is right. There is no room for regret, obviously.

  • If everything’s the same, then there aren’t any choice! I want to wake up in the morning and decide things! (123)
  • I just didn’t realize there was any other way, until I received that memory. (157)

The people in the community cannot see the colors, which I was really astonished at. How do they distinguish one from another? The Black and white doesn’t make a big difference. The world must be dull. Even they make themselves dull, not just world. In this part, I recall <The Last Cuentista>. Not to be different, they transform themselves into the same figure. Is it really happy to be the same? In the novel, the situation is usually extreme, which we usually dislike. However, we could find out many of those in our lives. Suppose the 2022 pantone color is violet, then we can see lots of things in violet. It could the one of the example of the sameness.

 

What are the pills? It seems that the pills make people unable to feel anything. That’s why people who are responsible for the release commit killing without feeling any emotions. It was so shocking for Jonas to see his father say good-bye to Gabriel in sing song voice. They pay their ability to appreciate beauty for Sameness. We know the consequence would be a disaster.

  • The next morning, for the first time, Jonas did not take his pill. Something within him, something that had grown there through the memories, told him to throw the pill away. (162)
  • Thinking, as he always did, about precision of language, Jonas realized that it was a new depth of feelings that he was experiencing. (…) But now Jonas had experienced real sadness. He had felt grief. He knew that there was no quick comfort for emotions like those. (165)

In the end, Jonas has a real power, feelings like normal people, not his fake ability to feel for the community. As soon as he stepped in another world, he didn’t need to give and receive feelings through his hands.

  • All of it was new to him. After a life of Sameness and predictability, he was awed by the surprises that lay beyond each curve of the road. He slowed the bike again and again to look with wonder at wildflowers, to enjoy the throaty warble of a new bird nearby or merely to watch the way wind shifted the leaves in the trees. During his twelve years in the community, he had never felt such simple moments of exquisite happiness. (216)

 

What is the importance in memory? Jonas noticed that memory must be taken away from all the people. They seem to live at present only, but not the way we expect to be right. I’d like to connect memory with history. There is a saying that no history, no future. They abandon their memory, then it means that they definitely ignore their future. Although we repeat our mistakes throughout our history, history must have given us wisdom. And we also have good moments a lot, which give us some hope. Like, The Giver could give Jonas warmth, happiness, and love. I want to keep my precious memory in my life.

  • He had never before felt anything as meaningful as the memory. (160)

 

  On the last part, he sled the same as the first memory, which he received from the giver. It reminded me of Elsa who found Ahtohalan. I heard “Show yourself” in my ear.

  • The runners sliced through the snow and the wind whipped at his face as they sped in a straight line through an incision that seemed to lead to the final destination, the place that he had always felt was waiting, the Elsewhere that held their future and their past. (224)

Like Elsa, he seemed to find his own world. The way he reached the new world was novel. It was touching a lot. Even the baby, Gabriel.

 

  This is similar with the 2022 newbery novel “The Last Cuentista”. The story is different a lot, but both of them show us the danger of the sameness and diversity. I recommend both books, and you can compare the story and find the same meaning. Also, it is interesting to find how each author describes the disaster and the process the main characters overcome it on.

모두가 주어진 일에 맞춰 생활하는 삶이 과연 유토피아일까, 디스토피아일까. 늘 같음이 과연 생활을, 개인을 더 윤택하게 할까,,, 한손에 들어오는 작은 책에, 생각보다 짧은 길이 그리고 청소년을 대상으로 한 소설이라는 점에서 이미 어른이 되고 나서도 한참이 지난 내가 읽는 건 영어 공부 외에 크게 다른 감동을 주지 못할 수도 있다는 생각을 했는데 , 내 생각이 틀렸다는 것을 금방 알 수 있었다. 어느 나이에 읽어도 많은 깨달음을 주는 책들이 있는데 이 책이 그 중 하나이다. 쉽고 짧으니 영어로 되어있다고 부담스러워 하지 말고 학생이든, 어른이든 많이 읽었으면 좋겠다.
