    really like to talk about the character “Giver” because I found him the most interesting character in the book. The Giver is the person who is responsible of keeping all the community’s memories and pass them on to the next receiver.

    been traded for sameness and security. Lois Lowry has created such a place in the novel The Giver. This place, or rather a community, is expected to be in the future and is supposed to be a utopia where everyone follows the rules. The Giver is an amazing piece of literature; the characterization, thematic elements, and literary devices that are used just prove this point further.

    SUMMER READING RESPONSE JOURNAL Printed Student Name: James Cook Selected Book Title: The Giver Personal Reactions: Choose 3 ( three ).
