The Giver review

In The Giver by Lois Lowry a boy by the name of Jonas is different from the others in his community. He has the power to see beyond. He senses that he is different, but he cannot describe how he is different.

In his community there is one person that holds all the memories and he is called the Receiver. When the Receiver ages a new Receiver is chosen and the current one becomes the Giver.

After being selected as the new Receiver, Jonas sees the extremely wise Giver everyday. This is where he learns that he can see color. Yes he did not know he could see color because the community he lives in cannot see color.

He also learns many different things and ideas that his community keeps secret and he starts to dislike the people that live there. He knows, though, that they cannot help having these ideas for there were raised to believe them.

The Giver was a pretty easy and quick read. I recommend that everyone above the age of ten read this book.
