Yes I agree the giver is a good book.
>It's hard to explain. It's basically about a community of people that don't fight, do bad things, have emotions, etc. They're like robots almost, but they're human. Eveyone in the community has a job and the book is about the job of the Giver. He's the only one in the community that can feel emotion. He keeps the memories and emotions of the past so the rest of the community doesn't have to mess with them. <
Everyone is given a job, a name, children, husband or wife. They don't choose them. Every year you are given something, such as a bike at 7 (not sure about age), until a certain age when they are given a job. No one can see color except the giver.
*I don't rember names so I am making them up*
The book is about John. One day he is thowing an apple back and forth with his freind dan, and it changes but he does not now how. So he takes it home, aganst the rules and is punished. I belive a couple of other things change to. They day comes when everyone gets older and recives there gift. His age group was getting there jobs. Everyone is given there gift in order, so he know when he is suposed to be givin his job. But he is skipped. After they finsh given out jobs, everyone is wondering why john is not givne a job. Then it is annoned that John was not given a job, but choosen to be the next giver.
Now go buy/borrow the book.
