Mariko then suggests again that Joanna visit her uncle and undergo hypnosis. This is the third time Mariko has mentioned this option, foreshadowing that it would become an avenue Joanna would travel.
1. What do you think a psychiatrist can do to help someone with nightmares?
2. Would you go to a psychiatrist for help with a recurring nightmare?
3. Why do you think many people resist the idea of seeing a psychiatrist? Do you think Joanna is one of those people? Or is it perhaps part of the brainwashing that she has been through?
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 is clearly smitten with Joanna, and when he asks her to have lunch with him, it makes it seem to the reader that a romance might be in the air, touching on one of the themes of the novel.
1. Discuss what evidence you have seen thus far of romance being one of the themes in this book. Use examples from the book to illustrate your answer.
2. Alex has watched Joanna on stage for a few nights and is "smitten" with her. Does this seem realistic? Why or why not?
3. Alex being smitten with Joanna would seem to be like someone falling for an actor or actress in a movie. Are they falling for a real person or the person that is being portrayed in the part? Discuss this concept with examples to support your opinion.
