Movie better than book?!?!!?

The Giver movie and book were both good the book was good in its own ways but I think the movie was just slightly better. I know the movie was made after the book so the book should be better but that isn’t the case here. The first reason I thought it was better was that there was in fact a resolution. Jonas got to the house past the barrier and saved all his friends. This shows that other people agree with me when I say that not having a resolution in a book doesn't make the story that great. The idea of making it that cool finish, that kind of shocks you is ok but it makes it extraordinary when the ending blows you away. The movie kinda gave me that groovie ending if you know what I mean, what I mean is their was a resolution and it didn’t just suddenly end. Second reason I found that the movie was better than the book was, Ashur’s job was changed to drone pilot and that ended up giving the movie so much more action than the book did. For example it lead to a chase between Ashur’s drone and Jonas but the drone caught Jonas and Ashur dropped him in the rapids to give him a chance to survive. Another way it lead to more action was when Jonas punched ashur when he was patrolling. If he was an assistant recreation director, but the point is it adds drama and action which makes books good and the book didn’t have too much action. Others may disagree saying that action doesn't matter in books, but it does ok you are not going to read a book about feelings with no action. The Giver has little action and the movie has a good amount so the movie in my opinion is better. The third and last reason is Jonas find love with Fiona and kisses her in the movie, that doesn't happen in the book. That is what jonas wanted the entire time someone to love and he got that only in the movie. Tying back into the part when I said, the book needs action. That was action he had her not take her pills then said they should meet under the fountain, but the shocks you and kisses her. That was awesome (not too sound weird) but that made the movie stand out and really shows love matters unlike the book it doesn’t. Then again at the end Fiona kisses him back shows that they love each other and and again love ties everything together, it shows life would be terrible if you never loved anyone. This also proves my point that the movie is better than the book. In conclusion I thought the movie was better than the book because it had more action, conflict and love. The movie had way more action and cool moment than the book when I read a book I want to be on the edge of my seat wanting to know more I want to read more books by the author, not scared of the author. This is why I thought the Giver movie was better than the book.

Technology

The poem seems to state that we are abusing technology and that it isn't making us better. In my opinion if we are given technology we should use it to are advantage. Why should we not use technology?

The end

At the end of the book Jonas says that he hears people singing but "perhaps it is an echo" then the book ends. This is a weird ending but kinda cool ending cause it leaves you to imagine what happened next. Why could the author have decided to do this?

Playing?

For the first time in a long time Jonas gets to play with his friends. This was a good happy part of the book except for he knew they were playing war. Why would this traumatize him?
