In this book, the Giver, an old man gives all the memories of a world such as ours to a boy named Jonah. In this world there is no color, love, or twins, and the babies and children are bred by special people who have the job of birthmother. They then are adopted away. Everybody in the town has a special but awkward job. The giver tells Jonah of a place such as our normal world. After Jonah learns of the world before, he becomes anxious to escape and discover if their is a color outside world in which there is love, and normal families. The more visions that Jonah receives, the more painful they become. He also begins to become more and more anxious about discovering what is beyond his dull and controlled town. He also soon begins to have strange dreams of bathing one of his “girl” friends naked, in a bathtub. His parents then tell them to take certain pills to prevent these dreams, he does not because of his anxiety to find out what else there is in the world. The giver later tells Jonah how Jonahs and his own dinner, breakfast, and everything else that they do is monitored and controlled. The Giver later gives Jonah his consent to escape their town to go search for a normal and happier world. Jonah kidnaps his baby brother whos twin gets killed by Jonahs dad. Him and the baby escape out the town into a normal world at the end of the book. The rest of the book, is about the visions that Jonah has, and explains how the “Giver,” is the keeper of memories from the village from hundreds of years ago. The ending of the book is somewhat uncertain, since you dont know if Jonah makes it out of a desert into a new, better world, or if the whole thing is a mirage, to Jonah
