The Giver is a good book. It's interesting. The book keeps you wonting to know more.


I believe that The Giver should never be banned any where in the United States. I have much response to support what I say. First of all I have read the book my self when I was 10 years old. I was a 5th grader at the time that I read this book. After I read this book it was my favorite novel for years. I don’t know how anybody could ever challenge this book. Kids need to be exposed to this kind of thing and the real world. You can’t keep your kid under your wing forever. Also, what did we come to this country for in the first place? Freedom. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press. The last part is the most important, Freedom of press. Writing a book does fall under Freedom of Press. So people can’t ban a book that somebody has written for their pleasure and expression.


I feel that The Giver should not be banned from any libraries. Yes somethings might be inappropriate from young readers but this is a thrilling novel.
