The Giver is a mysterious old man that holds all the truths of the world from back, and back, and back. He knows of feeling like love and sadness, and he mentors Jonas to become the next Receiver of Memories.
Rosemary was the Giver's daughter. She was chosen ten years ago to become the next Receiver, but she did not have enough courage to take on the pain that comes with it. Rosemary filed for release, and the burden of her memories were scattered onto the community as well.
Fiona is one of Jonas' good friends. She is very warm and kind. Fiona likes working with the old, and is assigned as a Caretaker of the Old.
"If you were to be lost in the river, Jonas, your memories would not be lost with you. Memories are forever.”
LIKES AND DISLIKES
-The community in the book was very interesting because everything was controlled and the same, and I've never read a book like that.
-I like the concept that of the transferring of memories.
-I didn't like how they weren't allowed to share their memories with the other citizens.
