Lois Lowry is a very famous author who wrote The Giver, Gathering Blue, and many more.
because it reminds her of her daughter that died
By writing books like The Giver
Gathering Blue makes a lot more sense if you've also read The Giver. Both books are about an oppressive government in a dystopian society, although I feel that The Giver explains and shows this more fully. Gathering Blue's theme, per se, is basically coming of age, and loss. The book's main...
In The Giver "comfort objects" are stuffed animals given to a child at birth that remain with them until they are nine. Jonas' was a bear. His sister Lily's was an elephant. These animals were believed to be made-up creatures by the community.
According to Ms. Lowry, she began writing small stories themed on the events she read in the newspaper and saw on television. She realized soon after she started that each event she addressed would make a great larger story, so she incorporated all into the book.
She has won 25 major awards and 22 state awards, meaning that she earned 47 awards in total.
\nMany people, including myself, had written letters and e-mailed requests to Lois Lowry asking she does so. However Lois Lowry wants US (the readers) to make our own sequel. Make it what YOU want to make it. CHANGE the story. I agree and my sister is starting an extra chapter in class. She says...

she still is an author, and she started writing professionally after she went to college to get a degree after she was married w/kids. i don't know when the date was exactly. But she's been in the business for a while, and she's still in it.
Because at first the giver was the receiver of the memory, but later on Jonas became the receiver of the memory. So, Jonas once asked him what can i call you he said the giver because he gives the memories to Jonas.
Because the giver's strength was diminishing after the last failure with rosemary 10 years ago and he has been the receiver for way too many years, so carrying all the bad memories like warfare etc causes him pain.
By not wanting you to know the ending of the story. He wants you to create your ending. I heard from my Literature teacher that he never actually has an ending and he wants the reader to come up with one that they think is the best. Like in The Giver, I thought that it was like Jonas was Joseph...
"Beside her, tenderly, Leader picked up what remained of the boy and prepared to carry him home. In the distance, the sound of keening began."
Basically, Lois just wanted to throw another spin on the Giver.
The mood of the story is excited and suspensful at times
there can never be a perfect society. even if there is one, its filled with lies.
Following closely; doesn't stray from. I usually remember it by 'adhesive' (adhesive is the sticky stuff on bandages) and adhesive sticks to the skin really well.

Just look through the book for similes and make sure you don't confuse similes and metaphors because all a simile is, is a comparison using like or as. Metaphors do not use this tactic that similes do. If you really are to lazy to look through the book I highly suggest you do not use the internet...

Lois Lowry's message to me in my opinion is not to take for granted our world today. For example, we make our own choices, we have a variety of colors that we can see, and we are in control of ourselves. No one is over us, like in an Utopian Society.
