In the text on page 119 it says,"But the noise continued all around: the cries of the wounded men, the cries begging for water and for mother and for death. Horses lying on the ground shrieked, raised their heads, and stabbed randomly toward the sky with their hooves." The differences of the play compared to the novel was a bad choice because the battle scene in the play didn't quite hit the emotional dept the memory should've given to the readers/viewers.
I'm so sorry, Jonas.
In the novel on page 24 it says," It was effortless for Jonas, and even boring, though Asher enjoyed it, and playing catch was a required activity for Asher because it would improve his hand-eye coordination, which was not up to standards." This similarity in the play and the novel was good because they were both alike and the audience/readers knew what was going on during that time.
Take one of these pills, it will stop the stirrings.
On page 37 in the novel, it says,"It's just the pills. You're ready for the pills, that's all. That's the treatment for stirrings." By keeping the event the same in both the book and play was good because it shows importance on how the community aren't allowed to have any 'real' emotions and are very limited in choices they have.
