Jarrod Chaney writes the following about The Giver :
The Giver was an interesting novel that was very entertaining. There were so many good
things about the book, they are hard to count! In The Giver, the main character, Jonas,
surprisingly becomes a receiver of memory during his ceremony of twelve. After this, Jonas and his teacher who is called The Giver both give and receive memories of the past, making Jonas realize that the world he lives in has not always been the way it is. Jonas is a very easy character to relate to. If I was writing a book about a utopian society, I would use Jonas as a character without a doubt! Lois Lowry did a very fine job writing The Giver, and I believe her purpose in writing it was to show how a “perfect world” could not as perfect as it seems. There was never a point when reading The Giver that I did not understand what she was trying to say, which is a first for me.

Overall, The Giver is a must read! The Giver is a very suspenseful book and is a great book for people with a good imagination and a hunger for fiction novels. So, if you have not read The Giver, you should definitely give it a chance, because it really is a great book. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
