Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
Alex is beginning to experience strange phenomenon. Alex has a premonition that Chelgrin is going to be dead and seconds later discovers it is true. Alex also has a nightmare that is eerily similar to Joanna's nightmares. The reader begins to wonder if Alex has suffered something similar to what Joanna underwent.
1. When Alex had his premonition that Chelgrin was dead did you think he was a psychic? Explain why or why not. Use examples from the text to support your answer.
2. Now that Alex has begun to experience nightmares like Joanna do you think they are connected to him having found her in Japan against all odds? Why or why not? Use examples from the text to support your answer.
3. Using logical deduction, and examples from the text, explain why it is probable that if Alex underwent a brainwashing similar to Joanna's the chances are it was done by someone other than Herr Doktor.
Essay Topic 2
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?
Essay Topic 3
Alex wakes, bound on the floor of a kitchen. Alex manages to break his bindings only to discover that someone has already cut through the rope. When Alex enters the library, he is struck with a sense of familiarity. Alex searches the desk and finds his gun, realizing he had known it would be there. Alex then turns the gun on Chelgrin even though he has no reason to believe Chelgrin means him harm. Alex wants to put the gun down, but he cannot do it. Alex fires the weapon, hitting Chelgrin in the chest.
1. Discuss what the above passages might indicate about Alex's possible situation as to being manipulated. Use examples from the text to support your answer.
2. Do you think Alex is responsible for shooting Thomas Chelgrin? Why or why not? Use examples from the text to support your answer.
3. Hypnosis professionals say that no one can be made to do anything under hypnosis that is against his/her moral code. Discuss what you think Alex's behavior with shooting Chelgrin might mean in view of this.
