The Giver

The Giver

by Lois Lowry

Analysis: Writing Style

Plain, Clear

The Giver is a rather straightforward narrative, so you won't get bogged down in ornate language or Faulkner-like, page-long sentences. But that doesn't mean that the writing is childish or boring. Refreshingly, the novel…tells it like it is. Or rather, tells it as it might be in Lowry's cautionary vision of the future.
