A sister, a family, childhood, a friend, the same world, all seem like illusions shattering away after the ceremony of twelve. The giver appears, bringing a world with memories before sameness and climate control. A world with pain, colors and love, a world that Jonas need to find, right after what he seen about release. He needs to take a journey to ‘elsewhere’ where he can never turn back.
I really like the book because it shows what could happen in the future. Sameness, and killing of the weak. My favorite character is Jonas. When I read the book, I feel like someone like Jonas and the giver are taking my memories and reading the book, too. The book keep me guessing because the author didn’t give spoilers that the world was different. And the book didn’t just end. No one said where did Jonas went. My favorite part is at the ceremony of twelve. I was so thrilled about all the tension.I don’t know what Jonas got.
I was sad at the scene of the elephant being hunted, and the scene shocked me. The book make me sad, because it could really happen. The book was attractive and keep me reading again and again, and each time I grip something more. I really like the book.
