The Giver

Genre: Young Adult Dystopia, Sci-Fi

The Giver is about a boy named Jonas, who lives in a futuristic world. In this world, children are given a job at a certain age, based on their personality. They will have to work this job for their entire life. This world seems "perfect" however it is far from it. Jonas learnes this first-hand.

Jonas is assigned the job of Reciever of Memory. This is one of the most important jobs in the world. He goes everyday to The Giver, a wise man who each day gives Jonas memories of the past world. Jonas realizes that the world used to be a beautiful place, full of wonder. However that has now changed. 

I really enjoyed this book. The book was very wise, and the story taught a lesson that in order to have good days, you must have bad days too. I think that Jonas was taught that good things can also become bad. 

I like this book because of the lessons it teaches. I think that most young adults would benefit from this story's wise teachings. Most importantly, that bad times may come, but they will get better.

Jonas learned that his world was not as perfect as what he thought it was, but he did something about that. He went against anyone telling him otherwise. That is why I admire his character the most.

The book had a very interesting plot, and I enjoyed learning from The Giver. The book was not confusing with the teachings, and I think the author did a great job at capturing the emotion. Overall, I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars, for the lessons.
