The Giver
The original CliffsNotes study guides offer a look into key elements and ideas within classic works of literature.
CliffsNotes on The Giver explores a world in which disease, hunger, poverty, war, and lasting pain simply dont exist. The members of this utopia have given up all human emotions and memories to live in a state of Sameness.
Following the story of a 12-year-old boy who recognizes the hypocrisy of his communitys “social order” - and who crafts a way to free everyone from the bane of Sameness, this study guide provides summaries and critical commentaries for each chapter within the novel.
