Storyboard Text

  • In this scene jonas is playing a simple game of catch with asher. but suddenly he sees the apple change in mid air, but he doesn't know what exactly had changed
  • The most painful and frightening memory of them all
  • "but suddenly jonas had noticed, following the path of the apple through the air with his eyes, that the piece of fruit had- well, this was the part that he couldnt adequately understand- the apple had changed" pg 39
  • The first taste of colour and difference
  • in this part of the book Jonas is at the ceremony of 12's and to his and everyone else's disbelief he had been skipped and had not been given an assignment. the chief elder then calls him back onto the stage and comforts him and the crowd that he had been selected rather then assigned
  • "they too were puzzled. In a firm, commanding voice she announced, "jonas has been selected to be our next receiver of memory", then he heard the gasp." pg 82
  • The new receiver of memory
  • ceremony of 12's
  • in this scene we see the giver give jonas a harsh taste of pain. Jonas recognises the memory as he slides down the snowy hill on a sledge but suddenly comes off tumbling down the hill and breaks his leg. Jonas wakes up shocked to only realise his leg isnt actually broken
  • the first taste of horrific pain
  • "the sledge hit a bump in the hill and jonas was jarred loose and thrown violently into the air. he fell with his leg twisted under him, and could hear the crack of bone." pg 141
  • Jonas hearing the familiar sound of music back where he left
  • "water," the voice said in a parched, croaking whisper. he turned his head towards the voice and looked into the half closed eyes of a boy who seemed not much older than himself. dirt streaked the boy's face and his matted blond hair." pg 153
  • in this scene Jonas is confronted with a terribly painful memory that he takes off the giver. it is a memory of war and Jonas is terrified after being asked by a young blood covered man for water.
  • in this scene the giver shows jonas what really happens when someone is 'released'. Jonas quickly realises why they dont let the children watch releasing. Jonas is shocked to see his dad put a needle in a newchild and kills it
  • releasing isnt what you think it is
  • "to his surprise, his father began very carefully to direct the needle into the top of the newchild's forehead, puncturing the place where the fragile skin pulsed" pg 187
  • From the now distant community that jonas had left he thought he could hear music and singing. He heard it from the community that he had released all the memories into or perhaps it was just an echo
  •  "For the first time, he had heard something he knew to be music. he heard people singing. behind him, across vast distances of space and time, from the place he had left, he thought he heard music too. but perhaps it was only an echo." pg 224
