The Giver Setting

#1: "Now the landscape was changing. It was a subtle change, hard to identify at first.

The road was narrower, and bumpy, apparently no longer tended to by road crews. It was

harder suddenly, to balance on a bike, as the front wheel wobbled over stones and ruts."

#2: "Standing in the freezing mound that was thickening around his numb feet, Jonas

opened his own tunic, held Gabe to his bare chest, and tied the torn and dirty blanket

around them both. Gabe moved feebly against and whimpered briefly into the silence that

surrounded them.

Dimly, from a nearly forgotten perception as the blurred as the substance itself.

Jonas recalled what the witness was,

"It's called snow, Gabe, Jonas whispered."

The Giver Theme/Readers Response

Theme:

1. A perfect thing to one is not perfect to another.

2. Sometimes freedom is better than over protectivness.

Readers Response:

A part of the book I didn't like was that people

didn't have to make any choices. I also didn't like how people didn't have any emotions.

I don't think they should have a perfect community.

The part of the book I did like was that the community had no violence and

pollution and no murder. Overall I really enjoyed the book!
