The Giver, by Louis Lowry, is a Science Fiction book. Jonas, who lives in a futuristic society, is selected to be the new receiver of memory. In his community, there are strict rules. For example, one being the precision of language. Therefore, the people in the community do not know colors, feelings, and holidays. Jonas, when selected to be the new receiver of memory, has to hold the painful experiences that occurred in their past. Will Jonas be able to handle the pain and continue living in his community? Or will he leave?
I think The Giver is an interesting book. I don’t, however, love the book as it does not really have a good plot. I prefer mystery books. Although, I like that the community in the book has many different rules, and is very unique. I would definitely recommend this book to younger children. I think they would love it! I think the cover is okay. It has a picture of The Giver. My rating- I would say a 4/5.
