The Giver
The Giver | Lois Lowry
Now a major motion picture!The Giver, the 1994 Newbery Medal winner, has become one of the most influential novels of our time. The haunting story centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. This movie tie-in edition features cover art from the movie and exclusive Q&A with members of the cast, including Taylor Swift, Brenton Thwaites and Cameron Monaghan.

This is the book I was reading along with the 8th graders. It‘s still such a relevant reminder of how important free will and memories are. I really enjoyed hearing the kids analyze this work and get excited about it. ☺️

How do I even begin to describe this wonderful book?
Sameness is meant to make it so everybody is “happy” and “safe” but in reality it means death and destruction is around every corner.
People are killed because they are different or born a twin, families never experience love because that is a word to vast to really mean anything.
The world is grey, because if it was in color we would all be different and that‘s not acceptable.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

One of my all time faves, I first read in 6th grade (I think it may have come out that year), my husband‘s too. I‘ve been trying to get my 5th grade son to read it & I thought he was procrastinating. I put it on during our drive back to New Orleans, after evacuating from hurricane Ida & made the whole fam listen to it 💚 good production. I liked the voices used by the reader. Made my boys give a synopsis when it finished. Still 🖤 this book.

emz711 One of my all time favorites, it's what hooked me on reading. The other 3 in the series are good too. Didn't ruin this one for me. 8mo
JacqMac I read it a few years ago, when my fifth grader came home and said, “Mom, you have to read this book!” 8mo
Cosmos_Moon @emz611 yes! I think the others are great, too. I like how they‘re their own stories but have a connecting thread. I got the box set last year, just cause I love them so much and want my kids to read them. It came with foldout map of all the different lands. 8mo
Cosmos_Moon @JacqMac YES! My oldest is in 5th this year… I think he did actually read it already, but didn‘t seem as interested. My 3rd grader was resisting listening to the audiobook in the car 😒 8mo

After reading about a quarter of the book I realized I saw the movie a couple of years ago, but still liked the book more, it was less action-packed and more focused on the difficult questions raised. Having a choice comes with consequences and responsibilities.

This dystopian society pretending to be utopic and cultivating the absence of feelings and emotions made me think it also inspired the movie "Equilibrium".

This SF, Newbery Award winning books is a genre classic. Author Lois Lowry created a world so contrasting to our world today, but one that could one day be a possibility. This thought provoking novel follows Jonas, our protagonist who has just learned EVERYTHING. He is to be the keeper of knowledge, something that his perfect society is void of. Is the censuring of everything what is best for society, or is it time to wake them up?

DrSpalding Reading rockets is a high-quality resource and independent reading could work but both of my children had this as an option for a book club.

This Giver by Lois Lowry is a Newberry Metal winning science fiction novel centered around a boy named Jonas living in an eerily utopian society. The society is stripped of pain and emotional depth by laying all of the world‘s past memories on just one person, the Receiver of Memory. Jonas is selected to become this person and struggles deeply with the newfound knowledge of pain and suffering that has occurred throughout existence. The Receiver

The Giver creates a plan to have Jonas escape the boundaries of this dystopian society which will return the memories to everyone.

I first read this series several years ago, and when it came up on my son's Build Your Library booklist, I hadn't planned to re-read it. But then he started asking questions about the story and wanting to discuss aspects of it, and I realized that I didn't recall the details well enough to have a conversation. I really do enjoy this one, with its confusion and difficult questions, and I was glad to revisit it.

Jonas dream about Fiona, he tries to convince to let him bathe her. though the rules are very delicate, a pill has to be consumed until you enter the house of old. the pill erases the memory. He rode his bike and thank how pleasurable it'd be, he counted each dreams and tried to retell them. I would recommend this book if you plan on reading the next 3 continued books relating. The author uses flashbacks on Jonas trying to retell his dreams.

I noticed that the author uses very descriptive and a lot of figurative language such as imagery. “Hot and windswept under a vast blue sky. There were rufts of sparse grass, a few bushes and rocks, and nearby he could see an area of thicker vegetation: broad, low trees outlined against the sky,“ the author uses this so the reader can visualize what is happening. She uses more imagery within the book and is able to use it effectively.

In a world where everything is black, white and grey, Jonas learns the world is not always black and white.

I‘ve read the book about a dozen times growing up and needed something easy to listen to while working on a complicated case study. The book is always good and interesting, this audio book would randomly loudly play music during chapters making the audiobook horrible.

In the end, I didn‘t like this very much. I liked the beginning and was surprised when the end of chapter 11 I finally understood why the original book title is “The Giver”.
And then the twist in chapter 13 really struck my mind, but after that, the whole plot fell flat and rushed for me.

In this case, I didn‘t like the open end because it only showed me how much details of the world I am still not knowing but feel that I need to know them.

#30DaysOfGratitude by @jb72 – PART 2️⃣

Surprisingly, I was all into cars, so that there was no space left for today‘s gratitude:

• That it‘s almost weekend
• That I‘m having some time in peace and on my own
• For my significant other is understanding
• For hot grain-/chicory-coffee ☺️

Apropos “cars”: The biggest loves of my child-life were: 1) Herbie, 2) K.I.T.T.

jb72 That is so nice! Personally I loved the General Lee car and the Evel Knievel motorcycle. 2y

Prompt: Being thankful for the transportation system of one‘s choice.

You bet, I am. As a mobility-impaired person I am so thankful for my “Greenback”. I‘d be nothing without my little friend with the 4 black shoes. But to be honest, if I could have the car I wanted, I‘d have a Smart. Probably even in yellow – and then put a sticker on it: “Posting letters inhibited.” (In Germany letterboxes are yellow.)

jb72 That would be a cute and funny sticker on the yellow car! 2y

Freespirit Thanks for sharing this. On a trip to Berlin I visited monuments to the Holocaust. I loved that you talk about the events of WWII. 2y
Buechersuechtling @Freespirit honestly, I would be deeply ashamed of Germany if we wouldn‘t. Silent mass has never helped anybody especially when it comes to atrocities. So I appreciate your comment but I am unsure if facing up to those balances out not really caring about veterans – which in Germany is that term for those who have served and those still serving. I think that‘s different in the U.S. and the rest of the world, isn‘t it❓ 2y

But I really liked the idea of having four years in which each child has to do internships for a fixed amount of hours.

In chapter 5, Jonas goes to a retirement home and I really like how loving and caring and soothing the work with and for all people is presented. Seems like, other than in present times, in that world the carers really take time for (the needs) of the elderly. Something that I would wish to be possible more in our world.

I just finished chapter 4. It‘s a fluent read and I like that because it‘s entertainment and distraction without having to work mentally.

It‘s a weird world in which they live. I principally like the structure of every day life, but all those rules even for small things and for private life, and all that talk about feelings and analysing them is awkward to me. It‘s the same with getting a profession assigned at around the age of 12.

Relating this to the post @Leftcoastzen made. I am very thankful that she took my attention to the result. Of course, I then researched immediately and the big German news program says that Trump isn‘t accepting that Biden won.

As Jonas makes decisions, I wondered if they were right ones, or even the mistakes that I'd make. Hard to know for sure b/c his world is so small. At least, that's what's presented to us readers, adding suspense. But also that small world & its simplicity make it clear change is due. The question: is it worth it? But if what's propping up your society is too horrible to discuss, don't you need a new foundation? Definitely thought-provoking.

And just now my significant other was my four-side die. I assigned him to choose a number from 1 to 4 to pick my next read.

I will find out if he did a good job.

I wondered why did the original giver had all the memories and why don't other people have them but as I read more in depth I discovered that the government is trying to keep a utopia within the society and to do so they can't give the public their memories.
The Giver taught me a lot because his character is very wise and he taught me that having memories made by yourself are lonely and painful because memories are meant to be shared.

There is a huge lesson in this story and that is that there life is a world both balanced with good and bad, they live in a utopia but they are blinded by their governing forces and don‘t have any bad experiences.
The author is believable she is able to write well and it is easy to visualize the moment in the book. She writes with no bias but to show people that you must understand pain and suffering to understand joy and happiness.

When people learn about emotions and colours I can connect that to when I was younger and didn‘t know a lot about that. The connections help me learn the conflict because the people in the story want knowledge but they can‘t get it.
Some things that surprised me in my reading are how well the author can explain and make you visualize what colours look like. The writing would be compared to telling a blind person what colour looks like.
