Where Did From Come From?

Summary: "from The Landscape of Memory" is about the many, many people who have great memory and how powerful memory is. To some people, memory is valued, and some people, it is a curse. 


Reaction: I honestly thought that that was one of the most boring reads I have read in a while, although there were some parts that were more interesting than others. ( It took me exactly 37 minutes to complete the 8 pages of "from The Landscape of Memory."    !!!! 


Question: Why is there a "from" before "The Landscape of Memory" ???

NiCe NiGhT WaLk!i!i

Summary: The police come to take away a man who just wants to go on a nice night walk. 



Reaction: In the first part of the pedestrian (before you actually start reading it) it says how would you compare "The Pedestrian" to "The Giver", society wise?:::::: To compare them, I would say that "The Pedestrian'' 's people don't have enough rights to be happy and alive. (They should see what it is like in our world!) (What is the meaning of life then???)  



Question: "Giver": What is the Giver's favorite color??? 
                "Pedestrian": Why do the people in that world only have three channels of TV???

The Island In The Clouds

Summary: So far, Jonas and Gabriel are safe and far away from the searchers, but they are actually, this time, starving.   







Reaction: It is weird to think about the big changes between the movie and the book; One of which, that I was thinking about, was that they showed the community on an island in the clouds; and Jonas has traveled miles and miles away from the community. ( The movie and the book are obviously different.  




Question: How many miles does Jonas's community cover?

BLEW MY MIND

Summary: We find out that Rosemary is the Giver's daughter



Reaction: It just BLEW MY MIND that Rosemary was actually the Giver's daughter!



Question: When the Giver says he loved Rosemary, and now we know that she is his daughter, what if we totally hadn't suspected or something... that Jonas is actually the Giver's Son and Jonas doesn't know that....Ya know, since The Giver said that he loved Jonas???

The Opposite Of (You Lying to your parents) !!!



  Summary: Jonas find out that his dad actually lied to him but Jonas can't tell anyone.
Reaction:  Although it was probably the right thing, I don't think Jonas should have asked to see the release. 
                               
Question: Does the community have a dentist?

|Rosemary|Enjoys|Green, Yellow, and RED Apples|||||||||||||||||||||~

Summary: The Giver confirms to Jonas that the last receiver that failed ten years before was a girl named Rosemary.










Reaction: I think that it is stupid that Jonas's parents enjoy him, not love him.







Question: Are there other types or colors of apples, even though Jonas says "all apples are red"?
