What would the world be without color? In The Giver they lived their lives without color and it was only black and white. The characters in The Giver were Jonas and The Giver living in The Giver community in the future where everything is very controlling. What would have made The Giver community more positive are diversity, honesty, and empathy.
In The Giver, the leaders of the society choose everything for the people. They choose their jobs, their spouses, and everything else. People need choice. Without choice, people won’t know how to function by themselves. Sameness isn’t good for a society. “If everything is the same, then there aren’t any choices!” Jonas, the main character, explains on page 123 of The Giver. If the whole
Jonas lives in a communist society where memories from the past don 't take place. His community is a hypocritical disaster, the elders break their own rules that they came up with, they take away color and don 't even tell anyone about the occurrence, and worst of all their own rule adherence worker breaks many of their rules, multiple times.

How would you feel if you had no memories, celebrations, pain, or choices.The Giver community is a futuristic society where only two people hold the memories of the past. Jonas gets elected for the new receiver of memory at the ceremony of twelve. Jonas learns new things, see color and learns the meaning of release. He escapes, travels to elsewhere and releases his memories back to the community. Therefore pain, celebrations and more choice would have made The Giver community more positive.
Jonas’s society is extremely different than the one we live in today.The first difference between The Giver and our society is the number of family members. In the book they can only have two kids, one boy and one girl; however, in America we are free to have as many kids as we would want. The second
In her book, The Giver, Lowry demonstrates that though diversity can bring chaos, it makes the world a more creative and beautiful place.

Imagine living in a world with no freedom, choice, individuality, and color. Would you want to live in a world like this? Most of you would have said no, but a boy named Jonas has no choice, but to adhere to his community’s rules. In the book and the movie, “The Giver”, by Louis Lowery, Jonas finds it difficult to accept his community’s way of life. However, after he becomes the receiver of memory, he challenges the community after discovering what the world used to be like before sameness. In order to truly know what the movie or the novel did well or awful on, we must first consider the following criteria, characters, plot, and the setting.
“We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others” (Lowry). In other words, this means that to get what you want, you have to get rid of other things you have. Although there are many similarities between The Giver and our society, there are a lot more differences like families, rules, and personal freedoms.
“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose and to do it courageously.” This quote by Dr. Steve Maraboli states that life has a purpose that you have to reach out to. The objects in life are growth and the discovery of new things, and that can’t happen unless you push your limitations. The main character, Jonas, in Lois Lowry’s The Giver goes through a similar encounter when he is specially selected as the Receiver of Memories for his community. With his assignment as the Receiver, Jonas begins to see his community differently and its absence in color, feeling, and choices. In order to live your life, you have to uncover new things, and when that happens, it will open a door for more things to discover.
The Giver is a novel that is set in a society that strives to be a utopia. A utopia is essentially a is “a place where no one has to make a decision, feel pain or even have a negative thought or a bad memory” (Goepfert). In The Giver their community focuses so intensely on this concept of a peace that they make many sacrifices in their pursuit to obtain it. This includes the loss of emotion, lack of individuality, deceit of the public, and a great burden on a small few. Ultimately the cost of this utopia is too high for this society.
In the society in The Giver, emotions were not felt, clothing was not one’s own choice, and forcing people out of the society was acceptable. All people should learn that giving up pain and difficult decisions could mean giving up freedom. Diversity in a community is a good thing and should be celebrated. Lois Lowry was trying to send the message to her readers that being their unique selves leads to true
“Even the Matching of Spouses was given such a weighty consideration that sometimes an adult who applied to receive a spouse waited months or even years before a Match was approved and announced” (Lowry 48).

Nothing is ever unique or different, it’s always the same. Every choice is made for them, every move the make being decided for them. This is how it was in the community, everything was the same always. We are lucky to have the luxury of being able to make our own decisions. While our community have jobs, birthdays, and family, just like the community in The Giver,
One of the main themes in “The Giver” is the importance of individuality. The people in the community are not given any freedom to be individuals. They are not allowed to be different, and this creates less understanding of the world. This is why the community needs a receiver to understand these things for them. Without a receiver they would not be able to make the right choices. In our world however each individual has their own mind and can make the right choices for
