Connection Captain - Helena Segall
When I started reading the book I noticed that it really reminded me of The Giver. In The Giver and Anthem both want a community where every one is the same. They want people to act the same, have same feelings, and act the same. In both books, the main character have some sort of difference. In Anthem the main character is "evil". He is smarter, taller, and use to fight with kids back home, and all of that made him evil. So if any one has a slight difference from the rest of the community they are named evil. In The Giver the main character also was set apart from the community. He could see color, which no one else could, and he had a very important job which was to receive memories. In both of the books the people don't have much freedom. For example, they don't get to choose what they want to do for the rest of their lives. The people are assigned jobs and if they don't like it that's to bad. I would not like to live in either of the communities because if people are all the same I feel like life would be very boring.
