The Chrysalids

Chapter 1

On pages 5-6 and again on pages 11-12, we were given the information that lets us know that David is "Different" from the norm. What differences do you understand that he has?

Other people had no memories, dreams, or imagination.

But after that she went on to warn me very seriously not to mention it to anyone else; other people, as far as she knew, did not have such pictures in their heads, either sleeping or waking, so it would be unwise to mention them.

David was left-handed.

That was good advice, and luckily I had the sense to take it. People in our district had a very sharp eye for the odd, or the unusual, so that even my left-handedness caused slight disap-proval.
