The Giver movie is better than the book because it explains a lot more, it has a lot more conflict, and you can discover a lot more and try to connect the dots on the way.
One reason why the Giver movie is much better than the book because it explains more. In some ways, it can be a small bit of extra explanation, but in other occasions there could have been a lot more explanation in the book. A part in the movie where it explains more than the book is when Jonas begins to share his training with his friends and Jonas giving Gabriel memories to foreshadow Jonas`s love for Gabriel to save him.
Another reason why the Giver movie is better than the book is because it has more conflict. When you add more conflict, there is a lot more action in the movie. One way that they added more action is by having Asher being the drone pilot to have a much bigger conflict with friendship and trust. Another way that they added more conflict is by having the Jonas and Fiona relationship to add action toward the end.
The last reason is that you can have more thinking of signs of foreshadowing. If you have read the book, you will know some of the things that might happen, so once you get to the ceremony, you will begin to foreshadow that there will be an extra conflict with Asher and Jonas. Another sign of foreshadowing is when Fiona got the job of nurturer, so it is extra conflict when they want to save Gabriel.
The three reasons why I think that The Giver movie is much better than the book is because it explains a lot more, it has a lot more conflict, and you can discover a lot more and try to connect the dots on the way.
