    Best Book Ever!

    This book is the best book I ever read. The people of this 'community' suppose to live in a perfect world. Everything is watched , they cannot lie. No one knows anything about snow, sunshine, color, love, or even loss. Everything is the Sameness, even their birthday. This book is very interesting with lots of imagination!

    The Best Fantasy Book EVER!!!

    The 'COMMUNITY' is an isolated town on the inside. They do not know anything about love or loss. They live in the so called 'perfect community' they know nothing about animals or color, it's all sameness nothing about making desitions of their own. Until Jonas recieves the job that will change all that.
