Lets see Jones, lay on the bed and ill send you a memory of the sunset.

Gabe are you good?
In the book The Giver Jonas was in training and for his new job as the receiver. The Givers house was filled with books and he had one bed that Jonas had to lay o so the giver could transfer memories to him on hid back.
The Giver gave Jonas the memories of sunset so Jonas could see not only the sunset but color too. He would also get the memories of heat and cold temperatures so he can feel what the Giver had to go through. In order for Jonas to be the new receiver he has to go through war and pain something he dosent know what it feels like.
When Jonas escapes from his "other world" he is forced to survive with Gabe. Something Jonas hasn't done ever because he has always got stuff handed to him.
