The Giver was written by Lois Lowry, and was published in 1993. The book is a young-adult utopian/dystopian novel. I enjoyed the book because of how well written it is, and how it caught my attention because of how interesting it is.
The Giver is about a young boy named Jonas who had bravery, confidence, and courage while other people could not. Because of this, he runs away with a baby that they were about to ‘release’ (kill). The plot of the book lead me to enjoy the book as a whole. It is somewhat part of a trend, somewhat like The Hunger Games, but that statement is a stretch.
This book is overall very suspenseful and well written, and I encourage people to read it.
