The Giver, in my mind, was one of the ground-breaking young adult novels focusing on the deconstruction of a Utopian society. Before Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Maze Runner, somehow this novel is one of the last to get a movie option.  The Giver has great sentimental value for me but is also beautifully written by Lois Lowry so I am sure the movie will fall short for me. However, I will give it a chance and hope for the best.
