There are many interpretions? I thought the ending was direct and straightforward. He found another community and it the sequel he comes back to help the people with the "world of color".
Yes when i originally read it, i wasnt sure if Jonas died or not, it kind of sounds like he did but you are in fact correct, Lois confirmed he joined the other community and eventually becomes their leader. Interestingly enough she said she thought it was pretty clear he lived, but so many people wrote to her about the ending.
