The Giver

     I though that The Giver, By Louis Lowry was a enjoyable book.  This book taught me many new and wonderful things.  I had lots of fun reading this book in LA.  I had many thoughts and opinions while reading this book. 
     I thought that this was a great book to learn that a perfect world is not be what you think it will be.  Before reading this book I though that a perfect world would be the best. That everyone was same and no one was better then another. After reading The Giver I realized that a perfect world would not be as fantasizing as I thought and that I don't want a perfect world.  I really loved how Jonas risked his life just to give everyone their memories back to change the community forever.  Jonas also didn't want Gabriel to die so he brought Gabriel along with him, because he was going to be released I though that it showed that Jonas truly loved Gabriel. 
     There were a lot of fun activities we did while we read The Giver.  We created a poster that showed how each pillar of citizenship (truth, justice, equality, and responsibility) in the community that Jonas lives in.  I thought that the poster activity was really fun.  I liked how we had different discussions about what how pillars of citizenship affected Jonas' community.  I wish that we could have seen who would have thought a perfect world was a good idea before reading the book and done the same thing after.
     Over all I thought that The Giver was a wonderful book.  I think that everyone should read The Giver,  It shows that having a perfect world is not the a good idea for some societies.
