Well, another theory is he ended upo back at his community and that he'd been gone sooooooo long it was a changed society now..... with christmas.

well, i just finished reading the book for homework and i was sort of confused. i was thinking that maybe they both died. because they couldnt have just gone back to the community, people would be angry and worried. but in the book it says that people were waiting for them, they were happy. and jonas heard MUSIC. HE NEVER HEARD MUSIC BEFORE. so yeah. thats just my opinion.

I think that you can see the giver with3 diferent endings...
1. Jonas dies
2. Jonas really finds a new community
3. Jonas is just dreaming

so the author tries to make you see the ending with the perspective that you like... so its very interesting. I ,personally,think that is choice 2 because at the end it says that is not a dream it is real.. maybe the sled was left by someone there by purpose.. and the people were waiting for him maybe becasue the giver died so the memories went to this community or even Jonas memories... i dont know but it was a nice book

lol

LOL!

The Messenger makes it quite clear. Jonas and Gabe find a new community of misfits, who are runaways from their former lives in their communities. Jonas becomes the leader. I won't get much into that, but that's the conclusion.

what happened to Gabe? did he live to?

gabriel and jonad begin to libe in the new community

The words you need by the people you admire, such as the: Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. College isn't the place to go for ideas. Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see. Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content. Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.

I'm pretty sure that Jonas and Gabriel both died, because he saw the lights and was probably dreaming about the town. And he heard music, and didnt know what music was, and still knew it was music............

everything falls into place when you read the very last book of the lois lowry QUARTET. Jonas doesn't die and neither does Gabe
die

wow, this is just shocking, but i still need a accruate guess to the ending!!!!!!! PLEASE

What if Jonas stayed in the community and the entire story is just a memory he's passing onto the next receiver?
