The Giver Movie V.S Book
A past few weeks our class has been reading The Giver by Lois Lowry, and we watched the the movie. There are a few change in the Movie still respecting the book. The Giver movie and The Giver book they are the same thing but despite the small changes I think that the Movie did and awesome job. The first change was Asher, Jonas’s friend was a drone pilot instead. And Fiona gets the job of a nurture just like Jonas’s dad instead of the job of taking care of the old. One of the changes that I liked was Chief Elder being the main conflict in the movie. I liked the movie better than the book because there was action and thriller and a happy ending in the movie. In the The Giver book we did not know the ending, there was not much of a conflict, not so much action there was in the movie. Another reason why I like the movie better is because there is action, romance(love), and excitement. Not so much in the The Giver book. Their was a lot of romance in the movie; in the book Jonas had only one stirring but in the Movie there was romance between Jonas and Fiona. Jonas did feel love in the memories in the book and the movie; but in the movie he felt for the first time at the part where Fiona and Jonas danced together with other elders, younger, having fun. Emotions was another change. Jonas and the The Giver were the only one’s who felt things for others, Fiona started to feel emotions as well. Asher had a little bit of feelings for Jonas when he dropped him the water when Jonas was running away with Gabe. One of the biggest changes was the movie was told by Jonas’s perspective, which means it was told in first person. The Giver book was not told by Jonas’s perspective. Excitement/ action comes if Jonas was going make to the elsewhere, and save Fiona from dieing. Action comes when he is running away from the community and his dwelling to save Gabe and to release the memories. So the community can get them.(So The Giver and Jonas do not have to handle them anymore.) The movie and the book are really good and I recommend reading the book and watching the movie. But in my personal opinion I prefer the movie over the book because you could watch it. And because there is excitement, romance(love), action. You may like the book better than movie or you may like the movie better than the book. In conclusion I like the movie better than the movie. And I think you should try the book and the movie.
