When I read The Giver by Lois Lowry as a teen, I was just blown away by the book. It’s now made into a movie starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, and Brenton Thwaites who plays the role of Jonas – the receiver of all memories.
I read this book a long time ago, and my memory may be faulty but I don’t remember there being this much action in the story, also the world in the movie seems much more futuristic and sci-fi then the book itself. And wasn’t Jonas just a child?
Have you read the book? What do you think of the trailer? I am a bit disappointed by the look of this adaptation 🙁 .
