The Giver by Lois Lowry
The Giver

Did anybody read this when they were younger (I think I was 12 y/o)? I loved this book! The way Lowry described snow falling on one's cheek, I remember it being described beautifully and perfectly. The concept is interesting. I'm not sure how one would be able to depict this into a movie though, that will be interesting.



Quote:What it’s about: Everything is perfect; diseases have been eradicated, everyone is equal, and society is under control. Each person is assigned a position by the Community, and 12-year-old Jonas has been picked as the “Receiver of Memories.” Only “The Giver” knows the truth of the past, and he must now pass that information down to Jonas. This book has often been described as the first YA dystopian novel (in correlation with the current trend) and it shows that a utopian society has its downsides, like a lack of personal freedom. Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep make this a highly anticipated movie, and hopefully Taylor Swift will prove her acting chops.
Amazon review: 4.3/5 stars
Release date: Aug. 15, 2014
Starring: Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgård, Taylor Swift

Yassir Arafat?

Nope. Haven't read it.

Looks like a movie that I'll be dragged along to and will pretend not to enjoy.
