I read this book in class and fell in love with it. I recommend this book to anyone. It's very interesting. It's a great page turner and it's the kind of book that after your done reading it you wish you would have read it slower because you just don't want it to end. It deserves more than 5 stars if you ask me.

Serious reading

This book is for thinkers. It's not light hearted fluff. Don't read it if you are looking for a fairy tale. But do read it if you want to be affected for a very long time. Loved it 5th grade and I love it now!

First experiences

The Giver, was probably my favorite book in middle school. The thought of a world like theirs made me grateful and actually appreciate how our work is full of unique and different people. The book also made me thankful, in a way, that our emotions are so strong and are just really important tools that we take for granted. Just like color and how most people don't give a second glance at it. If something's red,to someone it's just red, but to someone else it's something spontaneous and magical. I enjoy the first experiences Jonas has with his new feelings and emotions. They make you feel brand new to so many things. Your first crush, first time you were terrified, your first teenage angst, or whatever else. It's just a great book. Besides this ramble, it overall is just a great read.
