The Giver

Lauryns opinion: My personal thoughts were that the book was amazing and it makes me want to read the others. I think Lois Lowery made this book like it could be reaslistc fiction but it's just dystopian fiction. Were Jonas lives were there is sameness to a tee there is nothing different everything is black and white .Where I think Lois Lowery wants us to look at our own society . Where in schools there teaching sameness to look at eveyone else and not judge because were all the same but I think Lois Lowery made a very good book and I cant wait till I can read the others . Victoria's opinion : My thoughts on the book were quite amazing. The way it could possibly be realistic but its just dystopian fiction. I am glad Lois Lowery made this book it gives me a new shade of color . where I thought everyone was all different . That is not always true no matter how people were in Jonas's community you were not aloud to point out eveyones differances. I think that our world is just like Jonas's community like at our schools where were are taught not to judge people or else you get in trouble were in joans's community you also got in trouble for pointing out someones differances . I think Lois Lowery had a great mind set when she wrote this book. when I think of this book I think of all the compaisons she thinks of like the world . I love the book called the giver and I will probobly read it agin but I also want to read her other books . To figure out her mind set to where I can farther my knowledge about the books she writes about . I would tell people to read this book when they get a chance because it is an amazing story .

MY OPINION

The main characters are Jonas and the Giver.Some of the minor characters are Jonas's parents, Lily , Fiona , Asher , Rosemary, and Gabe.The protangonist is Jonas.The antagonist is the community.
