Dude-ly Discussions with Denis: Review of The Giver by Lois Lowry

* Possible spoilers for The Giver ahead *

To start with, The Giver is a dystopian in which Jonas lives. Jonas is awaiting the Ceremony of Twelve in which he will be given a job. But when he is skipped over at the ceremony, his adventure begins. Through Jonas's travels, he finds that his perfect community is not so perfect.

Overall The Giver was a great book. The mixture of confusion, suspense, and mystery will keep you reading till the very end. The ending of this book leaves a lot of room for your imagination to run wild. Although some parts of this book frustrate me beyond belief, this is still one of the best books I have read in a long time. One of the parts that really shined in my opinion was how Jonas decided to drop his and the Giver's plans to to escape from the community just to save Gabriel. I would suggest this book to anyone who enjoys dystopian and suspense novels. In the end I would give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

* Ally, Melissa, and Lee have taken over the end of Denis's post to wish him a very happy birthday today!
