Would you listen to The Giver again? Why?
I'm not planning to listen to this again. I've read the book before and like the story very much, but it was interrupted by strange music at inopportune moments. A great book, but not a very good listening experience.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend they read the actual book and skip the audio version. The story is okay, but the quality of the audiobook is not.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Rosemary. She was very brave and noble and I like the mystery behind her past.
What didn’t you like about Ron Rifkin’s performance?
Many of the sentences trailed off rather than ending strong and clear. He also made noises with his mouth. I assume this happens often with actors, but that stuff is usually edited out.
Could you see The Giver being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I guess I could see it. I am not invested enough to guess the cast though.
Any additional comments?
The background music was HORRIBLE! They blasted you out with tacky synth music for EVERY SINGLE significant moment! It took me out of the moment because I was rolling my eyes.
