The Giver: Human Connection Theme
Click to Edit Title
Jonas had very little human connection in the beginning of the book, except for bathing the old and time spent with his family unit. "It was one of the rituals, the evening telling of feelings. Sometimes Jonas and his sister Lily argued over turns..."
Jonas begins to develop feelings for Fiona. He has to start taking pills that delete feelings. "The wanting," he said..."I could feel the wanting all through me."
When the Giver gives Jonas the memory of Christmas and love, Jonas starts to want true family and the love that comes with it. "Warmth," Jonas said, "and happiness...and family."
When Jonas sees his father Release a newborn twin, Jonas is surprised to learn Release is death. "He killed it! My father killed it!"
Jonas loves Gabe very much and saves him from Release, by running from the Community. "He wept because he was afraid now that he could not save Gabriel. He no longer cared about himself."
