“The giver” is a story about a controlled society, where there is no feeling, no pain, no suffering, no music and color,no love and no choices, but only sameness. “The Elders” decide who you marry to, whom you adopt as children, and a job will be assigned to you. Jonas has been selected to become “The Receiver of Memory”, and he is the only one who knows what the real world is like, beside his teacher. But Jonas will feel how the people in the real world feel. The reason Jonas has been picked to be the giver is because he has intelligence, integrity, courage, and wisdom, and most of all, "The Capacity to See Beyond." During training, Jonas started to know the truth, which they were controlled unfairly, and realized the community has murdered sick infants, old people, and those who broke the rules. Therefore, together with the giver, his teacher, they decided to break the rules and change the future of everyone
I think “the giver is a creative and interesting story because it showed that how freedom is important to us. If you can’t make decision for yourself, or love whoever you want, what is the purpose of living? I could hardly forget when Jonas learned about love, he asked his parents “Do you love me?” For me, I rather have to face the pain than lose feelings, because that’s how life is interesting!
