Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Compare and contrast Crow and Grace Wexler. What do they have in common, what is different about them? How do their personalities compare?

Essay Topic 2

Deductive reasoning is a technique for taking meaning from a work of literature. It involves logic: the conclusion drawn when fact one relates in a certain way to fact two. However, often an invalid logic statement results when fact one and fact two are not true. The conclusion is therefore not true, though the relationship between the first two facts is logical. Find an example of such a situation in the novel and discuss it fully.

Essay Topic 3

Each heir that played the game changed in ways that might be unexpected. Analyze how each heir changed over the course of the game. How did working on the puzzle, working with the partner they had, and having the $10,000 at their disposal bring about certain changes?
