Brianna.H book review of The Giver
Life in the community where Jonas lives is very serene. Citizens are assigned partners and jobs. Everybody agrees to everything that goes on around them without question. The community is a world without choice. Everybody is the same. Except for Jonas. At the ceremony of twelves 12 year old's are given there life assignments. But when the names are called Jonas doesn't seem to hear his. He then discovers he had been chosen for something special. His life assignment known as The receiver where he will learn his walks of life with a mysterious man known as the Giver.When Jonas progressively learns that the powers lie within him and his feelings he's forced to make a decision to save a life, will he do it? Or is it too late?
This is a picture of the community that Jonas lived in. The picture is in black and white because to everyone in the community black and white were everyday colors.So in this case everybody only saw black and white, in their point of view this is only what they saw.
The Giver and Jonas
This is a picture showing The giver transporting memories from himself to Jonas, but the picture is shown from two point of views. The black and White one represents Jonas because at first all Jonas could see was black and white like all others. The one in color representing The Givers point of view because The Giver already has the ability to see all things in color. So the top one is how Jonas saw everything and the bottom one shows how The Giver saw everything.
This picture is representing when Jonas was given the ability to see color by The Giver, the black and white part of the apple is showing how everyone else saw the apple and how he usually would've too. While the red and green part of the apple is representing when he saw color for the first time for a split second.
