Reminder, that no one should be near the river due to causing someone to drown.
In the Giver, the people in the community all had to wear the same clothes based on their age . They also have to have a only 3 members in each family. Also they all had the same color of eyes and hair since none of them actually see real colors.
Jonas you have been chosen to be the Receiver of Memory
I don't think i can take the job, it seems a little to much to handle.
In the Giver the people in the community cant do anything thats against the rules. They are controlled and they have to follow every single rule, like they have to share their feelings everyday during dinner with their family unit. Also they have to start taking pills whenever stirrings starts to happen in their dreams so it can prevent them from feeling or experiencing love and freedom in their dreams.
Perfect Exteriors Hides Evil Secret
In the Giver, the people in the community are lied to by the government by telling them not to go into the river since they might die from drowning. But the actually truth is that the river might take them to the outside world from the community. So thats one lie that the government in the community tell the people in the community not to do to prevent them from interacting with the outside world/Elsewhere.
In the Giver the Chief Elder choses for every twelve a life long job . Also the people have no choice of choosing their jobs. The jobs they get, each have different level of power. Also the only people in the community that have powers are the Elders and the Receiver of Memory.
In the Givers community the elders try to hide injustice and death from the people. When Jonas founds out that his father, a nurture, releases certain babies, he finally founds out that the word release means to kill He then understands what the community has been hiding from the people in the community.
Jonas became the unexpected hero after he was assigned to become the next Receiver of Memory. Instead of staying and continuing to became the next Giver, and stayed in the dystopian society he decided to escape from it so the people in the community can start to feel emotions and see colors. Also he escaped with the baby, Gabriel, to also save his and the babies life too.
