The Giver is a dystopian fiction novel written by Lois Lowry. The book is about a society
free of crime and sadness. In this society everything is chosen from your parents to your
partner. The main character is Jonas and he wants to live in a society that is free of emotions
because all peoples' races and emotions are the same. Then, the story continues as he
becomes the memory keeper as all the 12 year olds get jobs. Next, he has to take in all the
good and bad memories of the community which only he can feel. Finally, he has a secret plan
to leave the community. In my opinion, this book is good because the storyline is complex and
you're always hooked to see what happens next. I would recommend this book to teenagers. In
conclusion, I would give this book 4/5 stars.
