Due: Wednesday, January 10 (a week after we return from Winter Break) Part 1—Create a list of five discussion questions (and sample answers) about the book so we can include them in our class discussions. You will be expected to lead a discussion with at least one of these questions. (Your sample answers should be six to eight sentences in length.) Do you think Wargrave is justified in murdering the guests?
I do not think he is. Yes, he believes that all these people are guilty, but his belief that they are guilty does not mean that they are. These people were not convicted because there was no proof that they had done these acts. The system is designed to protect all

I am not quite sure why. He had killed everyone he had set out to, he had accomplished his goal, he had committed his murder. Why would he end it all? The only reason I can think of is that he wanted to create the perfect crime. He wanted for the police to never be able to solve the case. The only way he could have done that was to kill himself. However, this contradicts with him throwing the bottle into the sea. There is no clear answer to this question and the only one that could answer it is dead.
Who do you believe is the most guilty?
I believe, like Justice Wargrave, that Vera Claythorne was the most guilty and deserving of punishment. She did not actually kill him but put him well on the path of death. Also, it was done in cold blood. She killed the boy Ceril only so that her boyfriend would receive inheritance money. Everyone on the island was responsible for the death of one or more people but none of them were as bad as Vera. She killed a child for no reason and this makes he the most guilty. Wargrave was right to kill her last.
