I think that in the end of the book Jonas and Gabe die,or that Jonas died and that Gabe lived. I think that when Jonas said he needed every ounce of strength he died trying to use all his strength. I think that the town they saw was real and that someone heard Gabe cry eventually and then found them and took Jonas back to the community and hid Gabe. In the ending I thought it was a bad outcome.
But in messenger, there is a person known as leader who arrived half dead on a little red sled and, a few years afterwards, received many books from somewhere. Farthermore, Leader himself speaks of a community he lived in with no animals and he had a sister. In Son Jonas once again makes an appearance, married to Kira, daughter of Seer.
What I thought of "The Giver" ending, is that it left u hanging. I didn't really like the ending but i understood why she left the readers hanging. She left it because she thought that being left hanging like that would make u want to read the other Giver books. And believe that the ending of the book is not just a dream. I think they really have found another community. So there for they didn't freeze to death. But I dont think that I will read the rest of the series to "The Giver" book. But i would recommend this book for someone its a terrific read. :)
i think that they found they else where. i think they made it and there going to live there. a little bit later there going to go back and get the giver. there going to save him. they will live a happy life and maybe get some new parents. they will live and feel and see every thing a diffrent way i would read this book again
I think the Giver was a good book, but the ending really left me hanging. I do think they made it to Elsewhere. I think that a family brought them in, but Gabe died due to hypothermia. I also think Jonas was very weak, but he made a full recovery. That's how I think the book should end. (He probably biffed it on the sled and died?)
"The Giver" left me captivated! In other words, it was a very good book. I think that Jonas may be hallucinating when he hears music and sees lights. Sence hes been traveling for so long, his mind might be playing tricks on him. I wish there would have been a different ending to this book. But I recommend anyone to read it.
"The Giver" left me hanging there. I really wanted to know what happened. What I think happened was that Jonas did hear the music but right after he heard it he slipped into a coma. Gabe soon cried and was so loud that people in elsewhere heard him. They found Gabe and Jonas and brought them to elsewhere. Jonas woke up and found him and Gabe in elsewhere and thought he was dead in heaven, but he soon relized that he was finally in elsewhere.
That's really good Emma because heaven would be elsewhere!!
I think "The Giver" was a very good book. I also think that he was imagining everything he saw, like the lights and stuff. Jonas was so tired and cold that he couldn't make it any longer. Jonas and Gabriel were so hungry that they never made it. I would recommend anyone to read this book because its a very good book.
I thought that the ending of The Giver was good even though they left us hanging at the end. i think that Jonas dies because it says he has to use all his strength to keep Gabe alive. So i think that Gabriel lives and Jonas dies. My other thought is that Jonas was dreaming all this.
I thought the ending of The Giver was a really good ending to keep readers waiting. Us readers always love a good ending to keep us guessing so we cant wait to read the next book in the series. That is also good for the author thats trying to make money because people will buy the next book. In the ending I think Gabe and Jonas made it to Elsewhere and lived on. I think they found a nice family and the family took them in and helped them with all their needs.
i dont like the book, " the giver" . I think in the end of the book that Jonas and Gabe die while going down the hill in the sled. Well acually i think that Jonas dies and Gabe stays alive, but while Jonas is dieing he transfers all his memorys into Gabe,and he survives. Then he goes back to the town when he is older and watches all the people suffer from the memories and he sits
there and laughs to himself and laughs
like a evil villion from Austin powers with his pinky in his mouth. then later has a son who becomes the giver and he sits there and laughs evily and puts his pinky in his mouth. MWAAAA HAHAHAHAHAHA
I think that Jonas was hallucinating about finding a nice warm home but the reality was that him and Gabriel died from the cold. The place that Jonas was dreaming of going to heaven and entering on the sled down the hill and him and Gabriel would live happily in heaven nice and warm and always having a full belly.
I thought that the ending of "The Giver" was extremely stupid. I think that they should have ended it differently. I think that Gabe died from exhaustion and hypothermia. I think Jonas made it to "elsewhere" and killed himself shortly after because he could do so many things that he couldn't do in his old community that he went insane so he killed himself.
Jonas and Gabe must have lived because he is in they are in the third book
I think the ending to "The Giver" was okay. I thought the author should have added a couple more chapters to the story where Jonas and Gabe entered the town. And maybe there could have been a chapter that went back to the community and what the Giver was going through in trying to help the community deal with the memories. But I think that Jonas and Gabe made it to the elsewhere.
I think at the end of the book Jonas and Gabe end up dying. I believe that all the lights and music was just a hallucination from the lack of food and warmth the past few days. I believe they came from some of Jonas's memory. He was so cold he felt warm because he became numb from frostbite. Gabe survives a little longer than Jonas because he is heated by Jonas's body, but his warmth faded and his hunger grew. No one ever found either of them and the community was forced to bear all the memories Jonas and Gabe held. That is how I think the Giver ends.
The book "The Giver" was not a very good book to me. It made no sense at all. I think Jonas and Gabe died after sledding down the hill for the last time. I think this happened because it was karma for leaving their community because that's how their world is.
I HATED THIS BOOK!!! I think this book was a waist of time. I think it was a waist of trees. I think in the future we should read a diff. book or let us read our own book. I also think that Jonas had so much pressure that he killed Gabe then killed him self cause he couldn't handle the memories and the pressure and more. So in the future i hope u pick a better book. PIZ :)

I think that the entire book of The Giver was stupid. I thought the ending might make the book turn out better, but it failed. It made it worse. I wouldn't recommend anyone to read this book. I think the ending should have turned out with Jonas and Gabe actually just dreaming about making it to Elsewhere. Gabe and Jonas would have died on the side of the road from being so cold. As they were slipping away into their death, they were dreaming about making it to Elsewhere. Since Jonas shared the sledding memory with Gabe, they were both thinking of it as they were dying together. The end.
I think the book "The Giver" was a very good book! I would like to read the next two books in the series. Although the ending to the book left you in suspense, I think that Jonas and Gabe lived. I think the people of Elsewhere were waiting for him to come along one day. When he got there they had a celebration and they started a new life. Gabe grew up to be just like Jonas, a very strong leader. Jonas raised Gabe, while staying with different families in the community.
I think the whole book was stupid and had no point to it. IMO the book was confusing and i had no idea what was happening threw half of the book. "because I mite of been sleeping" In the end of the book when Jonas and Gabe were sledding down the hill, i think that they hit a big rock in the hill and jumped it and they both died. The light that they saw was the lights inside of the hospital when the doctors were reviving them. They both came alive for about 5 minutes but they both end up dieing in the end. No memorys were transfered and the town stayed the way it was.
I didnt really like this book. It didnt make much sense. I think that in the end of the story gabe and Jonas will be captured and brought back to the community and both will be released. I think next time would should read a different story that has more of an excitig plot. This book was kinda of depressing. So thats what i think about the book.
The Giver was the most unusual book I have ever read, but it was one the best books I have ever read also. The ending was the part that really disappointed me. It was, in my opinion, unfinished. I think Jonas has imagining what he saw because he had to give all of his strength to Gabe and his mind was probably playing tricks on him. I think that he was remembering the memory of the sled. It was a good book, but it was a disappointing ending.
I thought the,"Giver" was a pretty well written book for young adults. It was an unusual book especially at the end when it just leaves you hanging. But, I thought it was one of the best books we read as a class through out my hole middle school years. The ending of the book was really weird, I didn't really get it myself, but that is just me. But I really think Jonas and Gabriel went to a new community. But it is kind of odd, I think it might have been is imagination, but actually, I think it was a new community. But, I think it was a good book, but still a little disappointing at the end, maybe, we could read the next book. I don't think it was a dream at all. He really did actually heard the music. And I don't think they will freeze to death, they will find warmth.
NOOOO they do not make it to another community.The last scene is stupid.YESSSSSS!!!!!!!! they die.He was just thinking there were lights and music bz he is stupid.My interpretation is that it was a really boring book and i didnt like it he was kinda stupid.
This book was a little boring at frist but then it got intresting you could have a better ending though. I would off read a better and different book.
I thing gabe and jonas went to a place were there was snow and christmas
I think the the end of the Giver was a bad way to end a book because it ends with him thinking he got somewhere. I think that Jonas will end up dying because he was cool even with the memories. If they are somewhere then someone in the other town will her Gabe crying. Then Gabe will grow up and grow up in a other town. The music and lights that Jonas says he sees is just a dream then i real life.
I think that the ending of "The Giver" was fairly good but it really left you hanging. After reading "The Giver" I want to read the trilogy. And after reading the end i think that Jonas and Gabe will find elsewhere and join the community that they think they found.
Honestly, I think that Jonas was imaging the lights and music he hears. I think he is just hearing this because the giver had the gift of hearing music. Yeah maybe he sees lights but i doubt he can hear the music. Maybe he is leaving the community with Gabe but probably didnt go far. and the story went on with Gabe getting released and Jonas lives and soon becomes the new Giver.
I personally did not like the book"The Giver". Other people may have like it.In the end i think Gabe dies and Jonas lives and walks to the house and lives there. I think that Fiona comes to Jonas and they live hapily ever after.
I liked the Giver until the ending. I think that Gabe and Jonas reached Elsewhere finally and became part of a new community. Later, after the previous community Jonas was a part of overcame the pain of the memories left over, the Giver goes and joins Jonas in his new community. When the Giver gets there though Jonas and Gabe are very sick from the long journey. The Giver tries to heal them with happy memories but Jonas and Gabe died.
I believe that Jonas did make it to Elsewhere, although I think that Elsewhere was actually death. Many people claim to have seen lights when they have a near death experience. I do not know exactly how the author wanted the ending to sound like to others but it makes me think that he died. A lot of people like to believe that Elswhere is actually a place on earth but I choose to believe differently. If Elswhere was actually a place the people living there wouldn't know that Jonas and Gabe were coming. I believe that the lights and the sled he saw were actually the remaints of his memories leaving him to go back to the people. I loved the book but the ending could give a little more on what the author imagined would happen.
I thought the ending of "The Giver" was fairly good even though it left you hanging. I think that Jonas really did find Elsewhere just by the way the author made the story sound, but even if he didn't make it the people of the community would still get the memories. Either way there would have been a good thing in the end, no matter how sad it would have made the ending. The author made you get attached to the courage of Jonas and the helplessness of little Gabe to make me believe thaI thought the ending of "The Giver" was fairly good even though it left you hanging.

I think this book is O.K. At the end I think that Jonas falls of the sled and breaks his leg and dies but someone sees them and saves Gabe, and he lives with a family. When Jonas dies he sends all the memories to Gabe. And Gabe doesnt know whats going on and his new parents take him to a therapist and they think he has powers.
Thats what I think happens.
I love you Mrs. B
The beginning of "The Giver" was very boring. At about the middle of it started to get better.The ending of the book made me mad because it never said what happened to Jonas and Gabe. I think that Jonas falls off half way down the mountain. Gabe though makes it down safe in elsewhere and starts his rest of his life there
I don't think that Jonas and Gabe ever reached a community, they were just dreaming because they had passed out from being in the cold too long and the lights and music he was hearing were just from his memories. I think that the sequel to this book will be about them getting captured by the community and they try to escape again. Well that's what i think of this story.
P.S. my book was torn in to two but its all fixed now Mrs. Brezinski

I think that the ending of the giver should end with Gabe and Jonas riding down the hill on the sled and they fall off right before they come into the lights. And when they wake up they are in a hospital with there parents sitting right next to them to take them back to there community.Then the docter comes in and said that they both alomst died with hypothermia, but one of the planes found them and brought them to the nearest hospital. Then Jonas and Gabe both arive back into their community where Gabe gets killed like he was suppose to. The End.
P.S. Im sorry about the first comment.
The Giver book was good tell the end it just left you hanging. The middle was the best in the book. I think Gabriel and Jonas didn't make it to a different town. I think they will be caught and have to go back to the community and Jonas will try to run away again until he finds a different town. Over all the book was good except the very end.
no they did not make it to another community and they froze to death and he was dreaming about the lights and music.THE END
(\/) o (0 0) k ( ) ps your favorite student MichaelleahciM DaviddivaD
I think that Jonas and gab die from running out of energy and they lay down to take a break and they die. it was a dream from being so cold.
no one found them tell the snow melted because they were covered up my the snow
The Giver book was a ok book, at the end jonas and gab die from the cold and no food, jonas see's the lights and hears music so him and gab go down to investigate, it was really interesting and the ending makes you want to read the other ''GIVER'' books:]
I think in the end the sled will hit ice and Jonas and Gabe die. The light is the light you see when you die and the music he heard was the angels singing.
I love "The Giver" It was a very good book. The way it shows the twisted community, and how Jonas learned about the good and bad aspects of the "perfect community." The Giver is really depressing, but in a good way, it is what all distopias should be like, depressing, but also mind opening. The only problem I had with "The Giver" is the ending. What I didn't like about it is that they never went in to detail about when all chaos broke lose in the Community after all the emotions left Jonas and Gabe came back to the Community. Also what I didn't like about the ending, was that it left you hanging, I don't like when books leave me hanging. There is no closer. However I do Know that Jonas and Gabe lived, and found "Elsewhere" because after I read "The Giver" (which was before we starting reading it in class.) I looked up a summary for the other two books, and in the summary for the third book ( Messenger.) That Jonas and Gabe in fact live (SPOILERS!) Bottom line, great book!
nice is it true couse I need it for a report ty
I think that in the end of the giver, when jonas sees the sled, he is hallucinating and when he goes down the hill to and sees the house it represents going to heaven with the light at the end of the tunnel
I thought this book was great, I think jonas and gab made it to elswhere. they are going to have fun and live there in peace.
the giver blog
I think the giver was a good book. At the end jonas and gab reach Elswere. From on top of the hill they can hear music. So jonas and gab go down there, gabe freezes to death before gab receives memories.The music and lights they seen are not a dream its real , thats my interperation of the end.
What my interperation of the book is that jonas and gab reach elswhere, but when there on the hill above the city jonas saw the lights and could hear the music in the city. Jonas and gab go down the hill to the city but before they got there gab died before he could be transfered memories. Jonas reaches the city and lives a happy life there. thats my interperation of the ''GIVER''
"The Giver" was a pretty good book in my opinion. I think that the ending could have been written ALOT better but what happened in my mind is that Jonas & Gabe hadn't reached "elsewhere." I think that they were hallucinating from the cold & their tiredness. They could have possibly hurt themselves on the way causing a little confusion..... I think that eventually someone will find them but it won't matter because they would have already frozen to their death. Also, I think the "lights & music" they heard was them waking up in heaven after they froze to death. That's what I think had happened. (:
thank you so much this made me understand the book for school so much
HE SURVIVES BECAUSE THE GIVER NEVER GAVE HIM THE MEMORY OF MUSIC. WHAT JONAS HEARD WAS REAL
There is another book that she (the author) wrote with Jonas in it.
Spoiler (Maybe, I don't know, [I saw this part on Wikipedia])
Jonas is NOT dead, don't know about Gabriel, I don't know, and I haven't read it yet, but I think Gabriel is Matt, but remember this is only a guess :p
I think that the book is really good, as it made the reader think not just to read but it give us an opportunity to choose whether we want to end it tragically, happy or just ordinary ending like any other story we read. I feel that the ending of this story is quiet interesting. I think when the time that Jonas heard his father that they are going to ''Release'' baby Gabriel, he started imagining things and the only consolation that he has, is to imagine himself and Gabriel travelling to elsewhere. And the rest are just his dream.
I thought the ending wasn't that good at all. I was deffinately dissapointed and kind of angry. BUT i aggree with a few of the poeple commenting about it, and i understand why the author left it like that in a kind of... you figure it out way.
