Where Jonas lives, life is safe, orderly, and predictable.
Throughout The Giver, Lowry attempts to awaken each and every reader to the dangers that exist when people opt for conformity over individuality and for unexamined security over freedom.
At one time in the past, the people who inhabited Jonas' community intended to create a perfect society.
At first, The Giver gives Jonas happy memories of the past-memories of things Jonas has never known.
Jonas is eager and excited to be able to experience new things.
