The Giver

Here’s a book we probably won’t do for the book club since it already gets done to death in pretty much every middle school in America.  But the movie version is coming out this weekend and I wasn’t sure from the previews if it would be worth it.  My fears have been allayed by the wonderful Elizabeth Bird over at the Fuse #8 blog. Be warned it’s a thorough and spoilery discussion of the film and how it relates to the book.  So if you don’t want to know everything going in, wait to read it after you see the movie.  The short version: she liked it.
