My theme was pain and joy. Jonas has experienced both pain and join while receiving memories. He has experience pain when he had the memory of warfare. It never really said he experienced joy, But I believe the family memory made him feel joy.

My two symbols is an apple and the grey sky. The role that apple had in the story is that Jonas saw the apple "change." The Giver called it "seeing beyond" since others couldn't see colors. It was very important in the story. The grey sky played a big role in the story. The grey sky is what everyone had to see everyday since it was always the same. It had no color, or no beauty at all.

Rules: They can't question anything. People don't read books other than the three they have at home. Although these rules are not fair, These are important because when they question something it might sound rude to someone and they might get offended. Reading no more than the books they have at home is important to the community because it seems as if they don't want them to learn new things or become smart.


Rating:My rating for this book is 5 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed this book because it was suspensful, shocking moments, and it always left me on the edge of my seat.
