The Giver is a dystopian driven and intriguing story about a young boy named Jonas who lives in a community free of crime, pain, and sadness. When all the children in the community turn 12, they are assigned their jobs, which they will train for and participate in for the rest of their lives. Everything is chosen for you like your parents to your partner. Jonas stands out from the community when he is chosen to become the new ‘receiver of memories’. The community has been kept free of all the bad aspects of life because for as long as the community has been formed, there has been one person who holds every bad and good memory of the past inside them. This is both bad and good for the residents because,even lthough they are protected from harm and pain, they are also not exposed to the beautiful aspects of life.

I really enjoyed this book because, even though it is supposed to be more of a children’s book than teenagers, the flow of the story is complex enough to hold the attention of older viewers. I thoroughly enjoyed Jonas as a character in the giver because his character grew from a scared young boy to someone who is willing to risk his future life to save the community, It is very enjoyable to follow. This book represents the track of growing up; in the beginning, we are scared to accept that there are new duties, but as we slowly get used to it we want to move further and further away from childhood.

during the story, the loss of Jonas’s trust in his parents is also important in communicating the meaning of the story. At the start, when Jonas is an ordinary child in the community, he trusts his parents completely with everything he does and believes which he is expected to do so. though, after The Giver shows Jonas the record of his Father ‘releasing’ a newborn baby, an operation in which the baby’s life is put an end to and disposed of, Jonas ultimately loses his trust and respect for his father. 

This time is what forces Jonas to exit the community forever, even before The Giver has arranged for him too. I liked this shift in the storyline because Jonas begins to defy the life which is set out for him. It is a massive change from the guiltless mind of a child into the questioning and educated mind of an adult.
