The novel The Giver written by Lois Lowry is the most interesting books I have ever read. This book is set in a society where no bad things exist. However to achieve a peaceful utopian city they are forced to take away many good things in life including colour and smell. You may be wondering where all these memories go, well this is where the Giver comes into place. The society has one man who holds all the memories of the good and bad, almost every memory ever happened to man. The story showed me that the bad in the world can sometimes lead to positive experiences.
