I think that the book The Giver by Lois Lowry was better than the Movie, because parts were better explained, there were different conflicts that were introduced in the movie, and they created totally made up scenes in the movie.
One reason why I think that the book was better than the movie, is because parts were better explained in the book. In other words, in the movie they had to speed things up so that the movie was not 5 hours long. I think that they sped up some very important things, that should have been explained more. For example in the book, the Giver and Jonas go a lot more into depth with the memories compared to in the movie.
Another reason why I think that the book was better than the movie, is because there were different conflicts that were introduced in the movie. For example Asher was put as a drone pilot instead of a recreation instructor. This created a whole different conflict. Another example is that the chief elder had a lot more to do with the movie than the book. The Chief Elder was more involved in the community, and played a big role when they were searching for Jonas.
My third and final reason why the book was better than the movie, is because in the movie they created totally made up scenes, that didn’t really relate to the book. For example when Jonas and Fiona were breaking a rule, by taking the food trays and sliding down wear the stairs were. In the book we don’t even get a glimpse of what that looks like, because Asher is not a drone pilot.
Some people might think that the movie was a great representation of the book, however I think that the book The Giver by Lois Lowry was better than the movie because, things were not well explained, there were extra conflicts that didn’t need to be there, and finally there were scenes that were never seen in the book.
