Book Report: The Giver

Lastly the third image is based on loneliness. The image represents the fact that he was lonely he started to see weaknesses throughout his community. The community Jonas lives in is isolated from the rest of the world. From his loneliness Jonas learns the value of love as he experiences it through the memories transmitted to him.



The meaning of loneliness, memory, and human emotion are all things that tie into the book The Giver. The first image is of memory. Lois Lowry believes that having at least good or bad memories is better than having none according to the story. Throughout this book the Giver helps the community avoid problems/suffering if it wasn't for his memories about the past. “If you were to be lost in the river, Jonas, your memories would not be lost with you. Memories are forever.” Without incorporating the use of memory in this novel it could have ended up in various ways.


The Giver

Human Emotion

Jonas learns that the most important emotions are those that can not be explained or discussed but can only be felt . You can see the change overtime of Jonas by the ending of the book when he learnt to embrace human emotion.

Memory"The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. Its the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared." (Lowry, 193)

Loneliness"So there will be a whole part of your life which you won't be able to share with a family. It's hard, Jonas. It was hard for me." (Lowry, 129)

Human Emotion“Do you love me?"There was an awkward silence for a moment. Then Father gave a little chuckle. "Jonas. You, of all people. Precision of language, please!""What do you mean?" Jonas asked. what he had anticipated"Your father means that you used a very generalized word, so meaningless that it's become almost obsolete," his mother explained carefully.Jonas stared at them. Meaningless? He had never before felt anything as meaningful as the memory.(Lowry, 159)
