Here's a story where I compared it to the movie and wasn't disappointed. Were there significant differences? Absolutely, but for me, it didn't ruin the story at all.
The Giver, by Lois Lowry, is about a new world. One where independent thinking is fine, as long as you follow the rules. The rules were made to prevent mistakes of the past, like war, pain, jealousy and differences that make one stand out. Instead, people seem to be happy living in a cookie-cutter world. But Jonas is different. He knows there's more and the way they're all living is off. Things aren't quite right. So when he's given the job of becoming a Receiver, he takes on the memories of emotions, love, hate, war, peace, animals, LIFE! No big deal, until he can't stand to keep it to himself.
This story was beautiful but when I saw the movie, I loved it more. With both, I can proudly state I grew misty eyed. It's a lovely story, either way you watch it. Check out The Giver. I'm moving on to the next book on my TBR List. Keep reading!📚
