The Giver

The Giver could be a virtuously driven and attention-grabbing story. A few young boys known as Jonas United Nations agency lives in an exceeding society freed from crime and disappointment. At the age of twelveyoungster’s area unit appointed their jobs, that they’re going to train for and do for the remainder of their lives.  You chose everything; from your oldsters to your partner.

Jonas stands with the exception of the society once he’s chosen to become the new “Memory Keeper”. Society has been freed from all the negative aspects of life as a result of for as long because it has been fashioned. There has been somebody United Nations agency holds all the dangerous reminiscences of the past inside them. This can be each dangerous and sensible for the inhabitants. As a resultthough they’re protected against damage. They’re additionally not exposed to the extraordinary aspects of life.


completely enjoyed this book as a result ofeven supposing it’s imagined to be additional of a children’s book than young adults. And the plot is advanced enough to carry the eye of older readers. I truly enjoyed Jonas as a personality growth from a scared boy. To somebody willing to risk his future to save lots of the community, is gratifying to follow.

This book shows 

This book shows the trail of growing up; initially, we have a tendency to area unit frightened to simply accept that there area unit new responsibilities. However, as we have a tendency to get accustomed to it we wish to maneuver additional far from childhood.


Throughout the book, Jonas’ loss of trust in his oldsters is additionally vital in human action the morals of the story. At the startonce Jonas could be a traditional kid within the community. He trusts his oldsters utterly as is predicted. However, when The Giver shows Jonas the tape of his Father “releasing” a brand newborn kid, a method within which the kid is killed and disposed of. Jonas finally loses his confidence and appreciation of his father.

This moment is what forces Jonas to go away from the community, even before The Giver has planned for him too. I enjoyed this transition in Jonas as a result of he begins to defy the life that is about out for him. it’s symbolic of the amendment from the innocent mind of a toddler into the questioning associated educated mind of an adult.

The ambiguity
The ambiguity of the ending is additionally another side that makes this book attention-grabbing to scan. There area unit 2 attainable meanings behind the ending; each Jonas and Gabriel freeze to death alone on the sled, or they need very found “Elsewhere”. Ultimately, the ending still shows North American countries that, no matter what happens. Jonas has created decisions for himself instead of being told what to try to to.

 No matter what happens to him, it’s still higher than his life within the community would ever are. The community could be an image for restriction and censoring; it limits the alternatives of a private until they need none left, removing the joy from life.

 Created a private selection

 Private selection creates Jonas communities, and this demonstrates to the reader. That it’s higher to measure your life means you’d prefer to, than controls back.

 I believe this can be a very important message for youngsters and experiences like bullying in faculties limit folks from being themselves.
This book was simply scanned in an exceedingly few hours due to its easy. However an interesting plot and its attention-grabbing characters.

 So the Giver was powerful as a result of it’s one in all a rare few young adult books that leave the ending up to you.

The ending of The Giver is powerful as a result of we have a selection in what it means. Even as Jonas created putting to death selection for the nice of the community, you’ve got to make a decision for yourself too.


I would advocate this book to anyone.
