Blog Ten: Understanding
If this book was told in a different character's point of view, this book would not be as interesting. It would not be as interesting because we, as readers, would not know about the memories, Jonas' feelings, The Giver, colors, the seeing beyond thing Jonas has, etc. I would not know as much about the society because the memories are a big part of understanding his community. In the book it says, "They have never known pain, he thought." If we didn't have the ability to read in Jonas' point of view, we would not know what he was feeling, thinking, and or experiencing. This book would be a lot more confusing if the book was not told in Jonas' point of view.
