How would you fair in a world where your role is assigned? Where the very job, occupation, and position that you have in life is unquestioned? You must simply do as you are told and never utter a thought or word of independent overtones. If you find that hard to do, take a glimpse into the world of Jonas, the protagonist in this book. Should you ever have a question as to whether knowledge is power, this tale should erase that thought.
