The Giver by Lois Lowry, a gift to readers everywhere

Sumary:The giver has many underlying meanings and metaphors it portrays a utopian society that turned out to be more of a dystopia. The government as a all powerful entities giving people their jobs and suppressing their emotion as well as their right to know the past where people lived differently in aa world that wasn’t climate controler and where they lived freely. However now one child can see beyond and he is given the job of knowing the past and is excluded from society’s rule of emotion suppression he is given the memories of the past by the giver, who is the former “receiver of memories” and with that he decides that the world shouldn’t be how it is today, it should be how it was where people could love,laugh, really live and he fought for his peoples right to do so.

Review: this book is amazing in the long run and will change the way you look at society. Am I exchanging privacy for connivence? And when does it end? The book itself has a slow start but within forty pages it has it’s hooks deep into you and you can’t seem to put it down. It has suspense and a small amount of action but the dialogue is amazing and literary devises are greatly used to make the book very enjoyable. I recommend this book to all people who are looking for a short but meaningful read. Enjoy!
