Rather than viewing them as milestones to pass and never revisit, Cisneros believes that ages are “kind of like an onion” or “the rings inside a tree trunk,” with each year layering upon the last. The author states that when one’s birthday occurs, they do not immediately feel that age. It may take months to “feel smart” for the age one truly is.

Is Jonas’s society different than ours? Utopian (N) an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. The key word there is ‘imagined’ as we haved learned in The Giver that not everything can be perfect; it 's just limiting the being of a human. By having such limitations, the people can’t hold their memories, can’t see color, and the government chooses their family. Jonas’s society is vastly different than ours in various ways.
The government in The Giver is based on keeping information from the members of the Community and using deception to control the society. Jonas is exposed to the truth through receiving the memories from The Giver. The government relies on The Giver and The Receiver to keep the secrets of the old ways and prevent the members of the Community from rebelling. The Elders do not allow the members of the Community to know the truth of the releasings because it would cause the Community to know too much and have too much power. The leaders of the Community trick the members of the Community into thinking that they are able to make decisions, when in reality they are living a life void of free will.

She then competes growing old to layers of an onion, rings of a tree, wooden dolls that fit inside each other because, according to her, “that’s how being eleven years old is”.
Lea Vilna-Santos Mrs. English, 7th September 1st, 2015 The Giver, by: Lois Lowry Log Entry 5: Chapters 9-10: Question 7: In chapters 9-10, Jonas realizes from reading the last rule in his list that allows him to lie, that what if what people say isn’t the truth, despite what everyone in his community learns about the importance of telling the truth. He was even chastised when he exaggerated as a Four. He said that he was starving, but he was only hungry. His teachers made sure he understood that even though it was an unintentional lie, it was still a lie because as long as he lives in their community he will never be starving so they didn’t want him to ever say anything like that again.
