  2. 2. The Giver Author Pretest Quit
  3. 3. Character Setting Plot Back
  4. 4. Giver I am the wisest person in my society because I have all the memories of the community, including joy, suffering, pain, love, and sadness. I have chosen Jonas to take my place, but these memories are too difficult for one person. Do I let Jonas see these memories, or should I keep them to myself? Should I ever allow someone to experience these memories? Click on picture
  5. 5. Jonas I am the main character, and my life has just been taken away. I am 12-years-old, yet I am now the receiver of memory. No one understands what I have to experience through these memories. My life has changed, and I didn’t ask for this. Why can’t I be like everyone else? I want to feel love, but this is too painful… How can I relate to my friends and family now that I know things they do not? Back Click on picture
  6. 6. Gabe Only Jonas loves me and knows how to quiet my fears. He shows me memories, but I’m not sure what these memories mean. I enjoy them, though. I hope Jonas continues to show me these things because they take away my tears. Although it is wrong for Jonas to give memories away, should Jonas continue to show me his memories so that I can sleep? Back Click on picture
  7. 7. Community We are satisfied with where we are in life. We do not realize that life has more to offer. We have no emotions, and it doesn’t bother us. Why does Jonas continue to act so strangely? How can we control him and keep these memories away from us? Back Click on picture
  8. 8. For other nations, utopia is a blessed past never to be recovered; for Americans it is just beyond the horizon. --Henry Kissinger Perfection consists not in doing extraordinary things, but in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. --Angelique Arnauld  Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. --Leo Buscaglia  Utopia… An ideally perfect place, especially in its social, political, and moral aspects
  9. 9. The community’s utopia… No color. Nothing abnormal. Nothing exciting. No diversity. No truth. No adventure. No feeling. No memories. Perfection. Back
