Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Peterson admits that he and the CIA brainwashed Alex into going to Kyoto to find Joanna so they could follow well-placed clues to bring them to St. Moritz. Peterson says the CIA needed Chelgrin to die before he could be elected President, but could not do it themselves for fear it would tip off the Russians that Chelgrin has been compromised for many years.

1. How would you feel and what would you do if you were Alex?

2. Peterson, a C.I.A. agent freely admits to Alex being brainwashed by the C.I.A. Discuss what you think the possibility is that in real life the C.I.A. would do something like this.

3. Should Alex be considered a hero for taking care of a national security problem for the U.S. government in spite of doing it unknowingly? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 2

Carrera is not a nice person from his obsession with inflicting pain on himself and his thoughts in regards to killing people for pleasure. The reader feels the malice that Carrera exudes and feels fear for Alex and Joanna, who are surely going to be targets of Carrera's maliciousness.

1. Unfortunately there are a number of people in the world who seem to like to inflict pain on themselves or others. Following research on sadism, discuss why Carrera is a sadist with examples from the book.

2. There is obviously deep seated psychological reasons why someone would derive pleasure from pain, either their own pain or someone else. Is it possible that people who feel this way have some common factors in childhood? Discuss reasons from a childhood you think could form a person to become a sadist.

3. There is great debate in criminal justice circles as to whether someone who commits homicide is mentally ill. Some say anyone who kills another human being except in self defense has to be mentally ill because sane people don't kill other people. Do you agree with this? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 3

Under further regression, Joanna also reveals that all her memories of Lisa Chelgrin are gone and that she will most likely never recover them. The completeness of this brainwashing should be frightening to the reader, showing how vulnerable Lisa Chelgrin was and how violating Herr Doktor was toward her, both physically and mentally.

1. What do you think is the emotional impact of finding out you are not who you thought you were? Use examples from the text and your own life to support your answer.

2. Discuss in depth the moral and legal implications of what Herr Doktor did to Lisa. Use examples from the text and your own life to support your answer.

3. It would be one thing to find out you were a different person than you thought you were. What would be the farther impact on Lisa of finding out that not only was she a different person than she thought but that her early memories are completely gone so she'll never know exactly who she was?
