I think the move was better than the book because it was more exciting and was really related to the book. It had some changes but I think they were good changes. One of the changes in the move was that the giver didn't transferred his memories throw his eyes. He transferred his memories threw his hands. Also there was small changes like the age of jones, the bander, Asher fluidez drones or planes, and etc.Here are three reasons why the move is better.
One reason is that the move showed more love in between Fiona and Jonas. It showed more friendship with Asher. Some evidence is when Asher liyed to elders and said Jonas was dead. But in reality Asher had trust in Jonas and dropped Jonas into the river with Gabriel in his hands. Another piece of evidence how it showed a lot of love is when Fiona felt love and kissed Jonas and no one made her do it. Also Fiona took the baby caring thing and the guards started chasing her and not Jonas and Jonas escaped thanks to Fiona.
Another reason is when Janas is trying to share his training with Fiona. He took fiona to the big bridge and slide down like when Jonas had experienced going down the sled. Also it shows some foreshadowing because in the memory while sliding down he saw a house and at the end of the move he saw the same house again. Another scene is when Jonas grabs Fiona's hands and asks her if she could see color in the waterfall thing.
The other reason is that the elder was like a bad guy because she ordered Asher to kill Jonas. She said that the giver was a failure for not teaching her daughter properly because he gave her bad memories. That is why she ascend for release. Also she payed more on Jonas than other people. She went to jonas's families house and saw Jonas dancing with his sister. Jonas also gave Gabriel some memories and one of them was the memory of the elephant and that they used to exist.
I know that you might think the book is better. One reason why is because it showed like dip feeling you could really feel them. In the movie it just happened fast and in the it just happened quickly. But something happened quick in the move and other things didn't and in the book it went faster and didn't show more feeling.
