    December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man, the man called only the Giver, he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world.

    What did you love best about The Giver?

    It just amazes me that authors can have this sort of creativity inside of them. The book was extremely entertaining, but also thought provoking. A classic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Probably Gabriel. He represents the community's disregard (and ignorance thereof) for life. They truly know nothing. He represented what was wrong with the community, and was also the face of the things that are worth sacrifice.


    What about Ron Rifkin’s performance did you like?

    I thought he animated the characters really well, and in a way that differentiated them from one another. He did, however, have some annoying swallowing and lip smacking sounds... I can imagine I would, too, if I were to read a book for hours.


    Any additional comments?

    The music was reallllly chessy and unnecessary. It sounds like something I made in my music theory class in high school, except with even more digital instruments. Boooo.
