Matt n Edward writes the following about The Giver :
This book The Giver by Lois Lowry is about a twelve-year-old boy named Jonas who lives in a strange community like no other in an unknown location. In this community there is no pain, loneliness, suffering, poverty, or love. Although, there arenít any choices. Your job is chosen, your spouse, your children arenít yours they are given to you by the community. At the age of twelve your assignment is given to you and Jonas is apprehensive. There are very strict rules. People are released from the community often. Jonas is beginning to become curious about the outside world of elsewhere. Then after receiving his assignment he meets the old receiver that changes his life from now on his name was The Giver. This book is a very unique and interesting story that I recommend to many young readers. This book compared to other books is very good and once you get reading you just cant wait to finish. Though the book couldíve given more details and answered more questions it was very good. Also a different ending wouldíve made the book much better. Always remember never judge a book by its cover. As I saw the cover I thought of a completely different plot. I could relate to some of the characters like Jonas being singled out. We give this book a 7 because itís a page-turner and the ending was a little weird. In conclusion, I would recommend this book to many young readers and adults. This book makes you think of how different the world could be. %Pr
