Okay I thought about a couple of "new" titles for the book
- THE ROAD SO FAR
This idea has to handle with Supernatural one of my favorite series ever (I first thought about the name and then started to think where I know it from).
(okay I wanted to put in a video here but I can't find the right one with blogger so just a link)
But here's another video (also another song but when you exactly concentrate on what Sam and Dean are talking about there are relations to the context of the book)
I thought this would work very well as a title because as you know Jonas rides along the road to nowhere at the end and the road seems endless. And it's my favorite opportunity.
I also thought about "And annualy greets the December" -as a approval to " Und täglich grüßt das Murmeltier"-as a possible title but I think "Decembers" suit better. The book begins with the December in which Jonas is going to be given his assignment and the book ends with a december where Jonas just in the night before the "ceremony-day" disappears together with the newchild which actually should been released the next day. So Decembers play a big role.
3.Who's got what it takes to be
Okay I know this is also a title of one of the songs from the movie "Camp Rock" but it fits you need to admit me in this point I mean ask the Google translater for a translation of " who's got what it takes to be" into German and he will answer "wer hat was es zu sein braucht" and that sounds really philosophical.
So this are my three oportunities for a different titel for the book "The Giver". I hope you enjoyed the entire blog-thing as much as I did. I mean it was hard to get into it and for some it was sometimes hard to take their thoughts into the right words but at the end -this is the point where your head should shake in a sign that you want to admit- it was a cool time we spend simultaneously in front of the screen and our nose sunk into the book.
