Book review: “The Giver”
Reviewed by Austin Reyes
The Giver is written from the point of view of an eleven-year-old boy named Jonas. When Jonas turns twelve years old, he is assigned a job like no other. He is allowed to question and lie unlike anybody else in the community.
Nobody is prejudiced in this society due to the fact that everyone is taught to act the same as everyone else. All competition is eliminated in this society, where everyone is taught to be respectful to everyone.
I think The Giver is a great read. In this classic, there are many twists and turns and a lot of moments that will make the reader stop and think. The Giver is a very easy novel to read, but it also has a lot of great symbols and underlying meanings in it. I recommend everyone read this book.
