A Made-up Community Confues Me
This book is confusing to me. it is about this make up community where you can't have your own child.They have this nurturing center where they have all the baby's and the committee people decides who the child belongs. The committee people makes rules and you have to obey them to live in the community. They also have this rule that you can't have your birthday after you turn twelve.
I'm not really interested in The Giver, by Lois Lowery because I am really confused about this made up community. I also don't understand the character's story. It is very awkward. In the real life we have government rules, and in this story they have this community stuff.
One of the big ideas or themes in this book is the society and committee rules. You can see this on pages 16-18 where it says: "I think it's probably the most important job in your community." As you can see, Lois Lowery is saying about this made up community that you have to work when you turn eight. You can do volunteer hours and service in the community.
So far, the plot in The Giver reminds me of a story in the news. What happened was there was a carpet-making factory where they used child labor. The children worked for almost 20 hours every day. The character in the book has the same story but its not child labor. The rules are like child labor. Like when you get twelve years old you have to work. It's same as child labor.
I am looking forward to reading this rest of the book because I want to understand this book. I think it's a good book, but it is hard for me to understand. I will do my best to understand this book.
