Transcript of Giver Book Report

The Giver By:Lois Lowry Author: Characters: The two main characters in this book are Jonas and the Giver.
Jonas is an 11 year old boy who turns twelve and becomes the Receiver of Memory.
The Giver is the previous receiver who has to give his memories to Jonas.
The Giver and Jonas are very alike because they both hold the memories that were given to them by their ancestors.
The Giver is also very different from Jonas because he sometimes can't live up to the horrible memories when Jonas can.
Sources: Lois Lowry. The Giver. New York: Bantam Books, 1993. Setting: The setting takes place in a community where people dedicate themselves to their jobs.
Each family has a home unit which they sleep in, eat in, and talk in.
The setting also takes place in a building where the Giver gives Jonas his memories of the past.
The building where they work is filled with books and Jonas has to lay on a cot to get the memories from the Giver.
Sources: Lois Lowry. The Giver. New York: Bantam Books, 1993. Summary: Jonas is an 11 year old boy who becomes twelve and the new Receiver of Memory for the community.
He works with The Giver who gives him memories of the commmunity's past and the world outside the community.
Jonas realizes that he would like to see the outside world (Elsewhere) before he gets releases which is like getting killed.
He raids the community of their food, steals his father's bike, and takes a newborn baby who was supposed to be released, Gabriel.
Jonas and Gabriel travel for three days and on the last day they witness one of Jonas's memories, starving, but they hear music and know that they have reached Elsewhere.
Sources: Lois Lowry. The Giver. New York: Bantam Books, 1993. Climax: The climax in the Giver is when Jonas is pronounced to be the new Receiver.
The Committee chose Jonas because of his intellegence, integrity, and courage.
The Committee watched Jonas become the top student in his class every year and know that Jonas went through trangressions.
They all know that Jonas is courageous and that he can handle the physical pain that the training requires and they know Jonas will acquire wisdom during his training.
When Jonas told the community that he sometimes sees things, the Cheif Elder thanked him for his childhood.
Sources: Lois Lowry. The Giver. New York: Bantam Books, 1993. Resolution: The resolution in the Giver is when Jonas takes Gabriel and leaves the community to find Elsewhere.
Jonas steals his father's bike and raids the community of their food.
He crosses the river where the old and some newbron get released and bikes three days to find Elsewhere.
On the third day, Jonas runs out of food to eat and he experiences one of the memories, starving.
Some time later, Jonas hears music and he knows that he has reached Elsewhere.
Sources: Lois Lowry. The Giver. New York: Bantam Books, 1993. Favorite Quote: Audience: Recommendation: The target audience would be early teenagers.
The Giver would be really confusing for small children and too easy and short to read for older people.
People in the ages between the ages of 13 and 15 would fit right in with the characters of the book.
The characters in the book and people in real life could correspond with each other.
Sources: Lois Lowry. The Giver. New York: Bantam Books, 1993. I would recommend all teenagers within the ages of 13 to 15 read this book.
The Giver is an astonishing book that could be a foretaste of our future.
I recommend this book because it shows what people become when they live in a community that normal people don't belong in.
The community in The Giver is a place where not many humans would want to live.
The Giver also shows some of life's horrible thoughts and memories that some people have to bear with every day.
Sources: Lois Lowry. The Giver. New York: Bantam Books, 1993. "It broke my heart, Jonas, to transfer pain to her. But it was my job. It was what I had to do, the way I've had to do it with you."- The Giver
This Quote is from the Giver on page 141.
This quote is very passionate because it shows that even the oldest members have trouble passing on their most troubling memories.
It also shows The Giver's loyalty to his job as the community's Receiver.
Even though The Giver is very troubled by some memories, he has to keep going with his job.
