Jonas goes through a lot of pain and realizes nothing o0
The Giver by Lois Lowry: Jonas finds himself futhur away from his friends and his family when he realized he never felt this real pain that was inside him getting deeper and deeper. Jonas learns how to recieve memories and his memories are becoming stronger and he learns his new values. He realizes that he needs to release his pain and that this was the only way just to isolate everything that was in his life.
I think The Giver, by Mark Haddon is important because I think that their is something that is really important for people to be isolated from their friends and their family. They need to be isolated from the most important people to them so they can concentrate on the thing that they are trying to deal with in their life. Even though it causes a lot of pain you have to go through all of it to succeed.
A passage from pages #108 - #109> that seems important is: "Jonas was jarred loose thrown violently into the air. He fell with his lef twisted under him, and could hear the crack of his bone. His face was scraped along the jagged edges of the ice and he layed their shock, feeling nothing but fear" I think this is painful because he has to go through so much pain and everything and now he had broken a bone and has so many scrapes on his face and I just think that is really painful and it stings alot. Also I have experienced scrapes on my face before and broken bones and it hurts alot and I dont want to experience it again.
Another part that I disliked was: "One of Jonas's arm was immobolized by pain and he could see through his own torn sleeve something that looked like ragged flesh and splintery bone. Slowly he tried to move it and to remove a cap off a bottle waiting for the surging pain to ease." This is an example of something important in this book. It shows that Jonas is going through a lot of pain through his training and still he can't stop no matter what the condition is. Now his arm is immobolized and unable to move at all and it is really hard for him. Everything is hard for him right now.
This section of The Giver reminds me of another book. In The Curious Incident of the Dog in the night-time it was the same thing about how Christopher was getting beat and the same thing that is happening to Jonas as well. Both of them has to go through a lot of pain in their life and they have to deal with it because they can't do anything else. I feel really bad for the both of them because they have to go through a lot of pain and deal with so many scars.
What's probably going to happen next is that still Jonas doesnt really understand what release really means. Jonas has suffered so much pain and everything from the Giver and the memories has thaught Jonas nothing about the life in the community and I thought he had learned something. Jonas manages to leave the community alive and to explore somewhere else. Jonas now can see beyond the rules and the society that he lives in and he can feel things that no one can feel in the society.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because I think that it is really cool that he gets to leave now because of all the pain that he has gone through, but still he hasn't learned anything new which I think is sad. I find it interesting for him to manage to leave the community and I also think that it is cool that he feels things that no one can feel in the society and I wonder what he feels and I think he does have mysterious powers.
