Man vs Community
Beginning- Genie
Animosity towards his dad
Jonas holds anger towards his dad in the end for voting for the release of Gabe.
Jonas recently found out that Rosemary was the Giver's daughter and he felt bad that he had to put his child through pain and see her be released.
When his parents thought he was taking the pills, he actually had been disobedient because, "He had not taken the pills, now, for four weeks" (133).

When they skipped him during the ceromony of twelve.

Angry at Asher for playing "war" because asher did not knowing what it meant.
He had a hard time accepting that the society was so

The comunity always did what they where told.

They did not argue with the
giver and his advice, "And when [he was] called by the Committee of Elders, [he] appear before them, to give them counsel and advice"(107).


Jonas dealing with new emotions and seeing color
Jonas also had a conflict with his family not knowing what love is because when he asked if they did they stated, " Jonas. You, of all people. Precision of language, Please!"
The outside conditions
"He hugged Gabriel and rubbed him briskly, warming him, to keep him alive. The wind was bitterly cold. The snow swirled, blurring his vision" (181).
Jonas had only received the memory of pain from the Giver, but when he was outside the community he really lived them.
Feeling cold first time when the giver gave him the memory of snow.

He felt extreme heat when he gave the memory, "Then it ended. He opened his eyes, wincing with discomfort. "It hurt," he told the man, and I couldn't get the word for it. "It was sunburn," the old man told him." (90).

He crashes in the cold snow and breaks his leg.
Jonas decides to be his own person.
"If everything's the same, then there aren't any choices! I want to wake up in the morning and decide things" (101).

Jonas' beliefs about the community.
Jonas is in discord with the community because he thinks the people are at a disadvantage.

Jonas does not like the fact that everything is the same from being able to not see colors or the consistent climate
As Asher started to play the malicious game Jonas started to notice it looks a lot like the terrible memory he saw
The Giver is a book that contains many conflicts amongst oneself, nature, and a community of people who feel no emotions and are all the same.
Jonas discovers many things about the community, his self and others.

He also found out there was a lot more to life than he had know.

Although some things did not go as planned he was set free.
