I think The Giver, by Lois Lowry is getting more interesting. I have found out new things in the story that help me to understand it more.
A passage from pages 34-44 that seems important is: "He remembered that there was a reference to the Stirrings in the Book of Rules, though he didn't remember what it said. And now and then the Speaker mentioned it. ATTENTION. A REMINDER THAT STIRRINGS MUST BE REPORTED IN ORDER FOR TREATMENT TO TAKE PLACE." I think this is important because it shows that there are a lot of rules that Jonas has to follow. This also shows that he has to take treatment for this because he is growing up and is getting ready for his assignment.
Another part that I liked was: "The entire community attended the Ceremony each year. For parents, it meant two days holiday from work; they sat together in the huge hall. Children sat with their groups until they went, one by one, to the stage." This is an example of something important in this book. It shows that Jonas is finally going to get his assignment. This part of the books is important because I'm going to find out what Jonas is going to be.
This section of The Giver reminds me of a song. In "Big Girls" it talks about how hard it is to grow up in a different community away from her friends and that growing up is never easy.
What's probably going to happen next that Jonas might not get an assignment since he doesn't really know what he likes.
I am forward to reading the rest of this book because I find it very fascinating and I like to find out more.
