Introduction

In the novel The Giver by Lois Lowry a bold charter by the name of Jonas is introduced and brings great change to the society and in different ways then ever thought. In the movie the same charter is introduced and there are many different things that are similar and different like how Jonas is older.

Body Paragraphs

In the movie Jonas is in the 16s but in the book Jonas is in the 12s. "He wanted his childhood again, his scraped knees and ball games" (pg. 121). In the book he was still in his childhood for the most part, but in the movie he was older and he was pretty well out of his child hood he had the same thoughts but wanted them back even more so because they had been gone for along time.
In both the book and the movie Asher, Fiona, and Jonas were all friends, but they had more developed relationships in the movie. even though they didn't have feelings they both had some special more dear sense and didn't just have the simple relationship that they had with other people.

Elements

Setting

The setting is all perfect but when you get out towards the edge it becomes more rugged and more like modern society where not every little thing thats out of place is immediately fixed, this shows the closer you get to memories the closer you get to reality and how things should've been the whole time.
