  • "Jonas wird zum "Hüter der Erinnerung" ernannt, in einer Welt ohne Not und Schmerz, aber auch ohne Gefühle. Lois Lowry wurde 1937 in Honolulu, Hawaii, geboren. Sie hat u.a. in Pennsylvania und Japan gelebt und wohnt heute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Lois Lowry ist verheiratet und hat mittlerweile vier erwachsene Kinder. Ihre Bücher wurden mehrfach ausgezeichnet, u.a. mit der Newbery Medal. Bekannt gemacht haben sie vor allem ihre spritzigen Alltagsgeschichten um das Mädchen Anastasia Krupnik, aber auch ihre psychologisch durchdachten und meisterhaft geschriebenen Jugendbücher, wie z.B. "Hüter der Erinnerung""
  • "La comunidad donde vive Jonas es idílica. Es un mundo sin conflicto, sin desigualdad, sin divorcio, sin desempleo, sin injusticias, sin dolor... pero también sin elección. A los ciudadanos se les asigna una pareja, dos hijos y un trabajo. Nadie hace preguntas. Todo el mundo obedece. Todos son iguales, excepto Jonas. Al cumplir doce años, es seleccionado para desempeñar un trabajo muy especial, y comienza a recibir lecciones de un misterioso anciano conocido como el Dador. Poco a poco, Jonas aprenderá que el verdadero poder reside en los sentimientos. Sin embargo, cuando su propio poser es puesto a prueba y debe salvar a alguien a quien ama, quizá no esté preparado. ¿Es demasiado pronto? ¿O demasiado tarde?"
