Review #1
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
A boy named Jonas is chosen as a Receiver at the Ceremony of 12, and begins his training. He is a little frightful because he will have to feel pain, and in his community there is no pain, no feelings, and no color! When The Giver starts to teach him feelings, he realizes that the world that they live in – of sameness – is not as great as it may seem, so him and Gabe, a baby that his family is taking care of, leave the community with help from The Giver. They leave the community and journey to “elsewhere.” Read book 2 of The Giver Quartet!

The book is about a boy who lives in an organized society in the future.  When the kids in the society turn 12 they get a job. He gets a very unexpected job – the Receiver. The Receiver receives memories from the Giver. What he finds out is crazy! His society has been keeping many secrets. I liked it because it was very action-packed and well-written. I couldn’t stop reading; I just had to find out what was going to happen.  Overall, it is a really enjoyable book.

The Giver is about a boy named Jonas who lives in a community where everything is supposed to be perfect and everyone is the same. When you turn twelve you get your job. Jonas gets to be a Receiver, which is a really special job. I liked this book because it’s so different from any other book I’ve ever read! It’s very unique from any other book and it stands out because of the author’s way of writing. I’ve read this book twice and I still would read it again!
