I'm fairly certain this hasn't been posted yet, because I searched. If I missed it, sorry.

The Giver is now the Dude. Or, the Dude is now the Giver. http://www.slashfilm.com/jeff-bridges-shot-adapting-ya-the-giver/

I can't decide if I'm excited about this or not. There is so much potential for film awesomeness and so much potential for absolute failure.

Thanks Hannah! The Giver is my number one all time favorite book. I wrote my first manuscript in the Lois Lowry style. I can't wait to see it come to screen. But movies are never better than the books, IMO.

Ooh, I'm excited to see this--if it's done well!
Giver is one of my favorite books, too.

OH NOOOOO!!!! I am so afraid they will mess it up. I am so afraid people won't read the novel as widely because they'll see the film instead. I am so very, very afraid that the film version will take over the version in my head.
