individuals are given assignments, their adult roles in the community. They also stop counting the age after the last ceremony, so most of them don't even remember their true age. Chapter 3 Jonas's father brings a child from the nurturing center home with him, and although it is forbidden to call him by name before his official naming and introduction into the community, the father betrays him to his family. From now on, Gabriel will come to Jonas's family every night. Lilly is enthusiastic and wishes to become a birthmother, whereupon she is reprimanded by her mother, who does not find this profession very desirable. Jonas is a responsible member of the community, adhering to the strict rules and showing immediate remorse for the rare violations he has done. Chapter 4 The ceremony of twelve marks the end of the internship hours, during which the young people received their first professional insights. The freedom to choose where to spend these hours had always seemed like a wonderful luxury to Jonas, because all the other hours of the day were regulated down to the smallest detail. Jonas helps his friends in the old people's home to bathe the residents. A resident tells him about the farewell party of a fellow resident before he was released. Chapter 5 During the morning ritual, in which the family members tell each other their dreams, Jonas exceptionally reports about a dream. He wanted to bathe his friend Fiona like he did with the old woman yesterday. Jonas's mother explains to him that this dream was his first arousal and that he now, like all adults, has to take the pills to suppress these emotional outbursts. Jonas feels the excitement as pleasant, but does not want to dance out of line and is in a weird position. Chapter 6 Jonas participates with his family in the public ceremonies and follows the special features of each ceremony. With Asher, he talks about being released and the place Otherwhere, to which people come afterwards. Asher reports about a boy who'd been unhappy with his Assignment and had swum across the river to a new community. Jonas is surprised about this. How could it not please someone in their community which was organized to the very end and in whom all the finalities were carefully weighed. Chapter 7 The ceremony of the Twelve follows, Jonas with full tension and nervous expectation. All the young people before him seem to be satisfied with the jobs assigned to them. When it is Jonas' turn, however, he is skipped, without the chief to respond with a word. Jonas is in despair. Every hope of being called is gone. What had he done wrong. Chapter 8 When the ceremony of the Twelve is over, Jonas is called to the stage. The Chief informs the auditorium that Jonas was not appointed, but chosen to become the receiver of memory. The chief lists the qualities that make Jonas fit for this position intelligence, integrity, bravery, wisdom, and look above things. Jonas is filled with gratitude and pride, and at the same time he is also afraid of what awaits him in his new assignment. Chapter 9 From the moment Jonas's selection is announced, his life begins to change. Jonas senses that the very appointment as successor to the guardian of memory makes him feel alone and separated from the community for the first time. His parents are very proud of him. Like all the other Twelves, he has been given an information folder, but it contains only brief instructions for his future behavior. Jonas is astonished, he has to no longer observe the rules of courtesy, is no longer allowed to talk about his dreams, is not allowed to make a request for release and is expressly allowed to lie. Chapter 10 Jonas appears for the first day of training as the Receiver of Memory. The work place of the Elder is different from all the premises that Jonas knows from the community. There are many books, a switch off for the eavesdropping system and individual furniture. The old Receiver of Memory cautiously approaches Jonas to his new task of conveying to him all the memories which he carries within himself, the troughs of the whole world. The Elder tries to explain the importance of memories, which must be experienced again and again because it is how wisdom comes. As a first reminder, the old man conveys to him the knowledge about snow. Chapter 11 After the Elder placed his hand on him, Jonas quickly becomes immersed in a memory. He can see snowflakes and feel the cold, and he even notices that his breath is visible. The word "snow" leaps into his mind, and he becomes aware that he is at the top of a mountain and that there is an object beneath him. He begins to ask questions. For example why his community has abolished winter and snow. The Keeper of memories explains, that Seasons were very impractical, so they were abolished and the supreme precept of the community, equality, was introduced. Jonas gets a first small impression that his profession will be connected with pain, when the giver gives him the memory of a sunburn. Chapter 12 Jonas dreamed of the sleigh ride, the first memory that the giver gave him. In his dream he always had the feeling that there was a goal. Jonas senses that he must reach that something which awaited him in the distance. That he'd be welcome there. That it would be very important. He tells the giver of his first experiences in looking beyond the things, and the giver instructs him in the secrets of colors by conveying to him the memory of a rainbow. The giver tells Jonas that as he receives more memories, he will eventually see all the colors, even as he gains wisdom. But at that moment Jonas is only interested in why colors disappeared. The giver tells him that it was a choice, and that "we relinquished color when we relinquished sunshine and did away with differences." He says they gained control of many things but had to let go of others. He cries out that people should never have given up those things. The giver is surprised by his reaction, saying that the same conclusion took him many years to reach. But then he thinks of a way to give help Jonas with the concept of color. He will give him the memory of a rainbow. Chapter 13 In the course of his education, Jonas has changed. He judges life in the community and wishes to be able to decide things. At the same time, he is still convinced that making his own decisions entails risks. Jonas tries to share his experiences with his friend and family and to pass on memories to them, but he fails. The giver gives Jonas an insight into his life and into the special strain that his work entails. Jonas opens up a new and for him shocking view of the community. He recognizes the special strains to which the keeper of memories is subjected, the deprivations he has to take on, but also the richness he possesses through access to memories. The giver also talks about the last new Receiver who failed and her memories were released into the community and caused tremendous suffering. Chapter 14 More and more painful memories are passed on to Jonas, and the knowledge of the pain makes him feel very lonely. Outside his training, he experiences the new feelings again. He discusses the meaning of their mission with The giver, and The giver reveals to him that their main function is to protect the community from unpleasant feelings and memories. Jonas is thinking more about somewhere else. When Gabriel spends the night in his room, Jonas realizes that he can transmit memories to him and so calm the baby. The fact that he had this power frightened him. He decided to keep the case quiet.
