Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Describe 2 examples of how Dexter deliberately stands in George's way and prevents him from doing something. Why does the author choose Dexter to perform this role? In each case, what is significant about Dexter's actions, and what do you think his motivations are for doing them? How does George's character respond and what does that show about his role in the plot?

What other examples does Liz use to illustrate her point that you cannot always judge a book by its cover, or in this case, a people by their names?
