" I first encountered "The Giver" as a movie and instantly loved it. I saw it many times on DVD before I borrowed the book from the library. There are some things that are different, including the ending. But after I had borrowed it so much from the local library almost no one else could check it out, I finally decided to buy it. Any book that can last past 5 full reads is a definite winner, and that is in this category for me! "
