Olivia Paszek writes the following about The Giver :
"The Giver" is a very good book for all people reading this book for school or just for fun. This author is a very entertaining yet very oraganized in her writing. The authors purpose for writing this book is that she is a sending a message to our society to be more like in "The Giver's" community. The literary element that I think the author handled the best was the setting of "The Giver". I thought this was the best because it has the right type of enviroment and it's neat to vizualize while reading the book. In this book the main character is a young boy now becoming an independant individual named Jonas. Jonas is a great character when it comes to society work in the community. He is very wise and brave too.
In "The Giver" the author tries to make "The Giver's" community a perfect plkace where nothing wrong happens. I think some things that they have, in me opinion, "less than perfect" were making there better memories that mnake the society even more perfect as the memories describe back, back, and back or a long time ago. If I were able to fix the flaws, I would make there more memorable memories that Jonas could cherrish forever, less orders, and lots more to improve the society. If I were an author trying to figure out what kinds of people enjoy the book I would say a person who likes to read a little bit of everything. From scary to funny or loving to serious. I would classify "The Giver" as a good book or lets say three thumbes up! Way to go!!
