CONFLICT

Conflict arises when Jonas becomes aware of reality as he receives Memories. This awareness is very unsettling to him. He begins to mentally revolt against some of the restrictions placed on community members.

Protagonist

Jonas is the protagonist in this story.


Antagonist

No one character fits the label, antagonist. But, the antagonist can be something in the physical environment or in the society. The system of Sameness under which the community lives is the antagonist when this more expansive definition of the word is used.

Climax

The climax of the story, the point of no return, is when Jonas realizes that “Release” of newchildren is actually killing them. The fact is made worse by the knowledge that it is his father doing the killing.

Outcome / Falling Action

The outcome of this realization is that Jonas flees the community with Gabriel in order to save Gabriel from being "released".
