*** Maybe we can take this one step further. What if the original receiver received his gift from the TradeMaster? The deal being in exchange for taking the memories, he must always stay in the community. Sounds like a deal he would make.

*** This troper read this around fifth grade. Around 5th grade is also when this troper started her period. This troper understood hormones in fifth grade because they wreaked hell on her life each month.

*** Not waiting the proper amount of time between pregnancies also puts both the pregnant person and the child at risk. I believe doctors actually recommend about a year between pregnancies.

* If there are only 50 babies born per year who get assigned to parents and they're assigned the year they were born, how are the ones born toward the end of the year screened in case they don't fit into the Community like Gabe and are they then Released after being given to a family? And if, like Gabe a baby is not Assigned to due issues, does a family not get their child that year?

** This was a real thinker, as the Community clearly uses noises for public announcements. It has to lead back into emotional response to music: we enjoy it because of the emotions music brings. If there is no emotional connection, it just sounds like noise.

** This troper's too old to have read ''The Giver'' in school, but in my day we were reading ''Literature/LordOfTheFlies'' by grade 6. ''Giver'' is rainbows and lollipops by comparison.
