    Lois Lowry notoriously gives out advice & ideas within her books. She has never been afraid to approach difficult topics & that is highly evident in The Giver. She takes the pain & real life issues that people are dealt & basis her novels on these. Like The Giver, she takes pain & suffering & puts it down on paper so that it is never forgotten. The Giver takes all of the memories of the society & holds them in his heart so that they too are never forgotten. A good example of this would be Lowry's book Number the Stars.

    The role that The Giver plays is to pass on the heritage, expereinces, knowledge, and insight that was given to him. Lowry does that in her novel which will most likely be read by a younger, less experienced person. The reader is being given information and ideas just like The Giver gives to the boy in the book.
