"Ash? Does anything seem strange to you? About the apple?"
jonas gets his first memory as the receiver from the giver, snow.
Jonas overwhelmed by warfare
"Water," the voice said in a parched, croaking whisper
Jonas experiences pain, feelings and colour The red of apple and the colour of Fiona’s hair
Learns what ‘releasing’ is. Witnesses his father inject a needle into a baby
" I know, I know. It hurts, little guy. But i have to use a vein and the veins in your arms are still too teeny-weeny."
This scene is important because we see Jonas experiencing the memory of snow and how it used to be normal for them to see snow but now it is not. Quote " He was filled with energy and he breathes again, feeling the sharp intake of frigid air."
Makes a plan to take Gabe and himself to leave the community
Jonas wants to give up and does not want to be receiver any more, after receiving the sad memory, of warfare from the receiver.
When Jonas and Gabe where hiding from a plane trying to find them. because they are missing.
This scene is so important because we finally realise what 'release' means. instead of actually releasing someone they kill them, with a needle. Jonas's dad has this job.
This scene is very important because this is when Jonas had to leave his whole family behind and leave with Gabe. So Gabe would not get released ( killed ) like everyone else. Quote "he could feel the little head nudge his back, bouncing gently against him as he rode."
Jonas knew they were search planes, trying to find the two missing boys.
