Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
Write about cliffhangers in novels and movies that make you want to know more. Give examples from movies and TV shows that end in such a way you want to know what is going to happen next. Many movies do that to get people anxious for the sequel. TV shows usually do that on the last episode of the season so that people will want to watch again next year. Pick out a few of those you remember and write how they made you feel.
Essay Topic 2
Describe in detail the good and bad points of Thomas Hutter. It is often observed that no one is either all good or all bad. Thomas Hutter had both qualities which Cooper brings out in the novel. Describe those qualities by using passages from the novel.
Essay Topic 3
Things that might not happen in real life but happen in a novel are true because the author says they are. Write how you feel about that. Do you find it easy to believe preposterous things like witchcraft and monsters just to enjoy a story? On the other hand, perhaps you do not really enjoy that kind of reading and prefer biographies and books of history. Explain yourself clearly.
