“Choose a life format that is the most desirable to you”(Redhead). In The Giver, written by Lois Lowry, their community is a utopia that provides them many resources including food, families, education, clothes, jobs, and many other helpful items. In their community, there are rules to follow, and if they disobey them, then they are to be released.
