Woah, I can easily understand why such a grand amount of people loved this book and definitely see why many were not satisfied with the movie.
I cannot believe how many elements of this story they changed.
However, there is something that I must admit: I preferred the movie because of how melancholic and hopeful it made me feel and for the suspense inside it that the book irrevocably lacked.
It is not something that I hear myself say often at all.
I have always been that little full of criticism girl who could not help but compare books to movies and movies to books.
Quite a negative experience I tend to have with the latter.
I mean, Red Riding Hood (trailer More troubling is that it is aimed at children, who don't yet have the critical faculties to defend themselves from such underhanded methods.
Unsurprisingly, Lowry adopts the structure of the monomyth, equating a spiritual journey with a moral one.
Her Christfigure uses literal magic powers to rebel against his society.
This rebellion and the morality behind it are presented as 'natural', to contrast with the 'abnormal morality' around him.
Lowry doesn't seem to understand that we get our morality from our culture, it isn't something inborn that we 'lose'.
This is the first hint of Lowry's misunderstanding of the human mind.
She assumes her own morality is correct, and then builds her story to fit it.
I've taught this book to my 6th graders nine years in a row.
Once I realized that the book is actually a mystery, and not the bland scifi adventure it seemed at first skim, I loved it more and more each time.
Nine years, two classes most years.
I've come to see that the book isn't the story of a depressing utopia.
It's the story of the relationship between the main characters The Giver, Jonas, and.
I won't say her name.
And of course, the baby Gabe.
Every year, as we read the book out loud together, I am amazed at details the students notice (things I've missed the previous 15 times), or questions they raise that lead to further insights for not just the class but ME.
My God, the things they come up with, that I as an English major, or even me if I'd read this with a book club, could never have go This book is perhaps the best refutation that I have seen in some time of a common philosophy of pain that is sometimes found in the popular media and in some versions of Buddhism.
According to this philosophy, pain is the ultimate evil, and so, to eliminate pain and suffering we must give up desire, and individuality.
Self is an illusion, and leads to pain; desire and agency are dangerous, so we should give them up and join the cosmic oneness "enlightenment" to find a utopia without pain.
As George Lucas unfortunately has Yoda say to Anakin, "you must give up all that you fear to lose.
And, of course, this is hogwash.
Choice, agency, adversity, love, desire, and real pleasure are dangerous, they can lead to pain, but without them life has no purpose.
Love could lead to the loss of that which we love, but life without love is empt
