I’ve heard plenty of good reviews about Lois Lowry’s children’s book The Giver (1993) but I still haven’t gotten around to reading it! I must admit that as a kid, this cover just did not appeal to me
Haha! Sorry!! I thought it was some boring pa-deep kind of book that I just didn’t want to read. But I heard that Suzanne Collins’ hit trilogy The Hunger Games is very reminiscent of The Giver aside from the Battle Royale comparisons. I grew curious but I still put a lot of books ahead of The Giver.
The first trailer of The Giver just came out.
In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the “real” world.
Yes, yes, it looks awesome. But more importantly, who was that cutie?! The name is Brenton Thwaites
Taylor Swift is also in the movie if you pause somewhere near the 0:44 mark where there’s a super fast montage. Don’t look for blonde hair! Anyway, I can’t keep track of who her current boyfriend is but I researched and saw that she was rumored to be dating Brenton Thwaites around September of last year!
And just for laughs, look at what I found. Very totoy Brandon Boyd vibes hahaha. Is that even the same guy? Sorry – sloppy Google skills.
And can we discuss the saddest thing about the trailer? STARRING: Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep and Brendon Thwaites. Sobrang na-waley si Katie Holmes?! Hahaha but it’s alright sweet Joey Potter, there are no small roles. Looking forward to watching this! Maybe I’ll read it before it comes out! Have you guys read this book?
EDIT: He also plays Prince Phillip in the coming Maleficent movie! Look at this photo of him with Elle Fanning who plays Princess Aurora
