(NF2,4)In the book The Giver there’s this girl named Fiona. Fiona reminds me of the movie Shrek. It reminds me of the movie Shrek because there’s a girl named Fiona too. They both have hair. So every time i read the book and hear the name Fiona, Fiona from Shrek just pops into my head. This is what The Giver reminds me of.
What perplexes me about this book is that they number their children. Also they take pills to get rid of something they call ‘’stirrings.’’ Also the fact that they chose their children makes no sense to me. They have someone that’s called the Receiver and that person keeps all the memories that ever happened. This book is interesting but has a few things that perplexes me.
(NF1,3)I am reading this book called The Giver. In this book they are assigned a role in the community its like a job. They have no choices, no war, and everything is under control. But i think its interesting how they get a role in the community. Also they get picked for the role. They are picked for the role on how they act at home and in school their behaviors.
I can make a connection with this book because i saw a movie similar to it. In the movie they were picked for their jobs. The world was perfect just like in The Giver. But the people were tired of everything being perfect. They wanted their own choices, i forgot the name of the movie but it really reminded me of this book.
This book was BORING. I couldn't get over the fact that in their community your job gets picked for you. How your parents are not biological, and that your siblings are not really your siblings. The community has no color and one person has to carry memories that you rarely need. I would hate being in a community like that.
(N4) At first the book was real boring to me and confusing. But after a while the book started getting interesting but it is still confusing to me. I think it confusing to me because they have a lot of different rules from the rules of today. I think the community is has a bunch of weird rules that the U.S.A wouldn't have at all. Their rules can be weird but safe.
(F8) I would get along with Jonas because like all the other kids they have manners and are respectful and treat people accordingly. Jonas also seems very humble and obedient. I would also get along with Fiona because she seems nice and is concerned about the well being of the citizens in her community because she got to work at the House of the Old, and that shows an act of kindness and humility. But overall I would get along with basically everybody because everybody is "perfect" or at lease acts like it. If I were a part of this book I would probably like to be the Giver. I would like to be the Giver because the Giver can see the Community that they live in differently compared to other people. For example he can see color and other people can't. Also the Giver has knowledge from around the world and he can use that to his advantage.
