If you think living in the real world is tough, imagine living in Jonas' world. Jonas lives in a black and white community filled with rules, where they assign jobs and spouses,a place with no technology, animals, or freedom. I would not recommend this book to anyone who doesn't like cliff-hangers. This books ending was unclear and in my opinion suckish. They didn't elaborate on Jonas' fate. I think this book needs more clarity. The Giver is a book of "sameness", euthanasia, and one boys' journey into the life of "Receiving". "Sameness."In their world barely anyoneis different from each other. Everything is one color, the climate doesn't change and you practically do the samething every single day.
