Blog seven: Jonas' POV change

His point of view is changing from others because he became The Reciever of Memory and now everything changed. He has a different point of view of his life and his society now. Ever since he found out that he was going to be able to lie and since he found out that The Giver was able to transfer memory into him. Jonas started thinking that maybe he wasn't the only one who was able to lie. Maybe his parents assignment also included that rule, but he had no way of knowing, if he asked they could lie. (68)


  1. He still has the choice to follow the rules. They're not saying he has to lie but that he can. His parents weren't selected like he was. Do you think it's possible for them to lie even though they don't have permission? Why or why not?

    1. I mean, there's no way of knowing whether his parents got the same rule or privilege. At least, that's what it says in the book.
