[ Pdf The Giver ☆ castile PDF ] by Lois Lowry ☆ I've taught this book to my 6th graders nine years in a row.
Once I realized that the book is actually a mystery, and not the bland scifi adventure it seemed at first skim, I loved it more and more each time.
Nine years, two classes most years.
I've come to see that the book isn't the story of a depressing utopia.
It's the story of the relationship between the main characters The Giver, Jonas, and.
I won't say her name.
And of course, the baby Gabe.
Every year, as we read the book out loud together, I am amazed at details the students notice (things I've missed the previous 15 times), or questions they raise that lead to further insights for not just the class but ME.
My God, the things they come up with, that I as an English major, or even me if I'd read this with a book club, could never have gone that far in depth.
As I began to mor I think I'm missing something.
Everyone loves this book and I liked it too, but it wasn't amazing or anything.
The Giver felt like a very sparse story to me.
First, there isn't much characterization, so I didn't form an emotional connection with any of the charactersnot even with Jonas or The Giver (two central characters).
Asher and Fiona (particularly Fiona) are introduced such that you assume they will play greater roles in the book than they do.
I don't feel like I knew Mom or Dad or Lily at all.
While the lack of an emotional bond with these lesser characters may be due to the nature of their community, Jonas and The Giver should really be more sympathetic, in my opinion.
Second, the desc This book is perhaps the best refutation that I have seen in some time of a common philosophy of pain that is sometimes found in the popular media and in some versions of Buddhism.
According to this philosophy, pain is the ultimate evil, and so, to eliminate pain and suffering we must give up desire, and individuality.
Self is an illusion, and leads to pain; desire and agency are dangerous, so we should give them up and join the cosmic oneness "enlightenment" to find a utopia without pain.
As George Lucas unfortunately has Yoda say to Anakin, "you must give up all that you fear to lose.
And, of course, this is hogwash.
Choice, agency, adversity, love, desire, and real pleasure are dangerous, they can lead to pain, but without them life has no purpose.
Love could lead to the loss of that which we love, but life with 4.
5 HOLY STARS!
I don't remember reading a book as fast as I read this one.
It was a great read.
I couldn't put the book down for hours.
And I must say is different from other books that I have read so this review actually is going to be somehow different from others.
So let's start.
I enjoyed the beginning , maybe because it looked like dystopian kind of book and as you may know I love dystopian books.
Also the colorless nature and emotionless were things that made me to continue read the book.
This is one of those books that keeps getting interesting page by page.
What I really enjoyed from this book , the reason why I gave it 4.
5 stars is because there we
It is very easy to start an interesting science fiction story.
Simply begin with a mystery.
Don't explain things to the reader and leave them in a state of wonder.
In this way, everything will seem interesting, intriguing, and worth exploring.
Tap into the reader’s powers of imagination and allow them to make your story interesting in ways you need not imagine, and perhaps cannot create.
This is a good plan for starting a science fiction story.
Lots of science fiction stories begin in this way.
On television, almost all of them do – ‘XFiles’, ‘Lost’, ‘Battlestar Galactica’, ‘The 4400’, ‘The truth is out there.
’ ‘They have a plan.
‘The Giver’ starts in this way.
In the first few

Man oh man, for a children's book.
Lowry certainly didn't pull any punches.
Jonas lives in a perfectly perfect world.
Every family has one mother, one father, one girl and one boy.

I thought there was only now.
Read the book, watch the movie, experience the synergy.
We don’t live in a dystopian world, but we do have a growing number of our population who believe that all that exists is NOW, that history is irrelevant, and that there is no future.

5/5 Stars! I read this book previously in middle school for English class and was still able to appreciate it almost a decade later.
The Giver is a story that sticks with many of us as it is often a part of required reading in school.
I consider it one of the most impactful academic reads from my adolescence as it was one of the first stories to feel targeted towards me.
I think the concept is fantastic and appreciate it's method of tackling serious issues through the lens of a teen.
Though it was published after many famous dystopian stories of similar nature, I feel The Giver succeeds in resonating with younger readers and challenging them to think critically about society in a way many others cannot.
Reading as an adult though, I do feel I enjoyed it less.
I had many more questions about the structure of the world t
Woah, I can easily understand why such a grand amount of people loved this book and definitely see why many were not satisfied with the movie.
I cannot believe how many elements of this story they changed.
However, there is something that I must admit: I preferred the movie because of how melancholic and hopeful it made me feel and for the suspense inside it that the book irrevocably lacked.
It is not something that I hear myself say often at all.
I have always been that little full of criticism girl who could not help but compare books to movies and movies to books.
Quite a negative experience I tend to have with the latter.
I mean, Red Riding Hood (
