The Giver: Differences Between Book And Movie

Good Essays
The Giver, action-packed and full of adventure both in the movie and book. Although differences may apply they are both fascinating. Imagine a community where your feelings are tucked away from a pill?
Both in the movie and the book Jonas was skipped during the ceremony of the twelve. Jonas was frightened and embarrassed and thought he wasn’t good enough to get selected to do anything. This is a pretty big key in the book because this is the time Jonas becomes the receiver of memory.
Towards the end of the movie, there was a pretty significant difference between the movie and the book. Fiona was being released for helping Jonas escape which at that time they thought it was bad. Father was getting the injection ready for Fiona which was managed by a machine and the needle was coming down and the memories were released. Jonas had passed the barrier and the memories were released to everyone in the community.

They were to control the stirring which was puberty overall. Keeping feelings from one another. The difference was that the book had pills which had to be swallowed every morning to control the feelings. The movie was the same way except that the had a wrist injector that you just put your wrist over it and it puts the medicine in you. Jonas bypassed it in the movie by putting an apple instead of the wrist.
The movie and book of The Giver had both similarities and differences. For example, the book and movie had medicine yet the movie had a different ending than the book. I recommend reading the book first than to watch the movies so people can notice the difference

    Movies and books are always different; in a movie you can show multiple characters, and in most books you're stuck in one character's narrative. For instance in the book The Giver the character Fiona doesn’t care about Jonas as deeply as she does in the movie. In the movie she stops her injections, and she starts to love Jonas. However in the book she only “enjoys having Jonas’s company”. In the movie she also helps Jonas steal Gabe before he is killed, and she is put in the community jail for helping…

    Although I enjoyed the book and movie, there are some noticeable differences seen between each. It was actually one of the best books I've ever read. This year, a movie was made on the story. The story follows Jonas who gets all these memories, and he realizes all the dark and deadly truths about the communities secret past. The movie sort of focuses more on the romantic aspect of the story; the love between Rosemary and Jonas. The book does more to capture the unconditional love Jonas had for Gabe…

    The movie itself is very much different from the book. The story was also changed with some of the plot. The movie and the book are both still following the same story line. Along with the same ending. This is what I have noticed between the movie and the book. Number one is that the old man was cruel to the young man. Unlike in the book where it says and I quote “The old man had never wronged me”. That was huge difference. This change also gave him a different reason to kill the old man. That was…

    The book, The Giver is very different from the film. One of those differences is character development. I think the strongest character development difference is with Fiona. In the book she was a more minor character who stayed the same throughout the book, as far as we know. In the movie she started off as more of a docile person, but by the end she was a lot more asserting. Fiona’s development starts when she decides to stop taking the injections. This is a big leap because everyone in the community…
