Throughout the novel, Isaac's relationship with Lin is tested, particularly as the two begin to spend more and more time apart. First, describe the struggles Isaac and Lin faced in their relationship throughout the story. Then, describe the state of the couple's relationship at the end of the novel. What do you think life will be like for them in the future? Was it worth the struggle of the fight for the final romantic result? Why or why not? Be sure to include examples from the text to help strengthen your arguments.

Essay Topic 3

At first glance, the slake moths seem unstoppably powerful. First, describe the physicality and hunting style of the slake moths. Then, choose two deaths at the hands of the slake moths and describe them in detail. In your opinion, are slake moths more menacing than any other animal in the wild kingdom? Why or why not? Should the slake moths be villainized, or called "evil", because they are following their instincts? Be sure to include examples from the text to help strengthen your arguments.
