When I first heard that they were making a movie of The Giver by Lois Lowry I was really excited. I remember reading this novel in middle school and it was the first book, assigned by a teacher, that I can remember really liking. I even listened to the audio book to see if it was the way I remember it. It's amazing what time can do to a person's perspective, It was like a whole different novel. If you haven't read the novel I definitely recommend doing so before watching the movie. The movie will be out on August 15, 2014.
