We wrap up The Giver this week as we watch Jonas discover more secrets of the community. He learns more about pain, humanity, and the procedure called release. Upon discovering the secrets of suppressed knowledge and the full range of human emotion, Jonas feels he must make a difference in the world. We discuss the lack of humanity as well as our theories and debates from the previous episode. Finally, we wrap up the book with more questions than answers hoping we will get at least some fragments of answers within the next three books in the set.
Next week we will be reading chapters 1-12 of book 2 in the series, Gathering Blue.
