The giver

Hey everyone today I wanted to to talk about the book The Giver. I finished the book yesterday and it was such a good book. The book is about a community where everyone is the same and the community is all about perfection. There is no emotions, feelings, or differences. Except the giver and Jonas, who have all the memories of the past. Like colors, feelings, and emotion. 
Jonas is selected to be the receiver and goes every day to get memories like anger, happiness, and other emotions. He goes through pain and sees beyond, sees stuff that the community doesn't have the ability to see.

That is basically the summary of the book and I totally recommend it. This book teaches us what we have and to be thankful for it.  We learn that life is nothing without emotions and differences. 
The community style is called a utopian society, where everyone is the same. Obviously, this book is fiction, there's no way a utopian society could work in life. First of all, most of the people in the world could see colors. Colors are such a beautiful thing in life, and I don't think anyone would want to get rid of that. 
Especially our special talents, I don't think people would want to get rid of that. Or our feelings, feelings is a very important part in life. It's important to have emotion, and feelings. Therefore, I don't think a utopian society would happen.
Question: Have you read The Giver? If you have did you like it? If you haven't do you want to?
