This evening I finally watched The Giver. Growing up that was one of my absolute favorite books, I've read it countless times and I thought that the movie did the book great justice. Being able to see the characters and their reactions to all the fantastic discoveries was amazing. It made me wonder what it would be like to experience the world for the first time all over again.
“Always in the dream, it seemed as if there were a destination: a something--he could not grasp what-that lay beyond the place where the thickness of snow brought the sled to a stop. He was left, upon awakening, with the feeling that he wanted, even somehow needed, to reach the something that waited in the distance. The feeling that it was good. That it was welcoming. That it was significant. But he did not know how to get there.”
- Lois Lowry
