Analyzing The Theme Of Choice In 'The Giver'

Satisfactory Essays
Jonas’s first reaction about having choice in people’s lives is that he thinks it is a good idea. After he realizes that when people have choice they chose war, hatred, and violence he thinks that not having any choices is good. I think Jonas reacts this way because he has never had the chance to make choices. The government took away the opportunity away to make choices of their own. I think Jonas changes his mind because the giver then tells Jonas that when people have the freedom to chose the always chose the wrong choice.
