The Giver and other dystopian novels like Fahrenheit 451 have some similarities and differences in the story line. First, The Giver and Fahrenheit 451 both share the fact that people are being controlled on the amount of knowledge that they know. Additionally, both societies have no idea of how they came to be. On the other hand, in The Giver Jonas slowly starts to realize that something about him is changing because he can see the color red but, in Fahrenheit 451 Guy Montag just wants to take a risk because of his curiosity. Second, in Fahrenheit 451, Montag is a “firefighter” except, in his society he starts the fire instead of putting them out, while in The Giver the jobs/assignments are practical for everyday life in the community.
The Giver is about a controlled community but a boy named Jonas soon becomes the Receiver and he learns the truth and tries to run away. First, the characters have comparisons during each of their movies, Truman is confused because he doesn't realize that he's in an act and so therefore he thinks everything that's happening is real when it's really not. Jonas from The Giver is confused on why they get no choices and why he was chose to be the Receiver and some other different things. They are also different because Jonas isn't confused because between reality and fake but also sort of
Anthem and The Giver are almost alike. In both the book and the movie, utopian societies are portrayed through idealistic systems and community framework. The Giver depicts a people of which past memory of human civilization and emotion does not exist. In addition, people living in this society can only view their surroundings in black and white. Jonas, the main character, is assigned as the Receiver of Memory.
But sometimes they could be totally different in what happens in those scenes. Throughout the novel and film color and dialogue had showed up. Colors, and dialogue are both a big part of the novel / film, but they are also different.The film version and the novel "The Giver" were similar in dialogue because in both they really affect how the people in the community react to situations that happen, and they were different in colors because this had affected how the people saw their community . In the novel and film "The Giver" the element of Color had showed up, but this element is similar and different in many ways. In the novel "The Giver" by lowis lowry in chapter 12 it states, "The next time had been the faces of the audience at the auditorium, just two days
One similarity is, the main characters are both trying to change something from their city or their community. In The Giver, Jonas is trying to reach the boundary of memory to replenish people with memories of both happy and very devastating things. The situation that pushes him to do this is when he sees his father release a baby to elsewhere, which, in
Word choice can have a big impact on a reader due to the weight different words have. If in The Giver they used fired instead of the word released it would have less of an impact. It would also have less of an impact on the characters in the book since fired doesn’t really instill fear in people. The setting of The Giver seems to be a flawed system with a controlling government, they live in a dystopia. If the council wanted to they could massacre, torture, or use the community as their lab rats.
What differences and similarities occur between a story of a society that extremely same and everything is controlled by government, and a society that inequality, differences rise and government only controls the outcome?

You can’t forget that runs a business in both the movie and the book. Some differences that I found is that in the book, the first spirit had the cap under its arm, while in the movie, the cap was in its hand. Another difference I found is that in the movie, in the scene where Scrooge is taken to the past to see a boy abandoned by his friends and alone in the school reading, Scrooge didn’t weep for him. But in the book, Scrooge cried for the boy. When the first spirit disappeared in the movie, Scrooge was fighting a carpet, while in the book, Scrooge woke up in his bed.

Suffering is everywhere, people have cancer, children are starving and others are drowning in poverty. Is it ever okay to help people end their suffering? In the book The Giver Lois Lowry conveys a world that is visualized as a utopia until Jonas, a twelve, who just got assigned his job and is now being trained by the Giver to be the next receiver of memory unravels the truth. The Giver and Jonas feel it is unjust that none of the citizens can feel emotions or see color as they do, so they make a plan to escape with an infant Gabriel, releasing all of the memories to the people. The novel is not promoting the idea of euthanasia, but rather showing the consequences of using it.
