Students were asked to select one of the following questions for their essay:

  1. The life portrayed in The Call is certainly distinctive, but routine is also a part of the family’s daily life, as it is for most of us. Using the same journal style as the book give examples of “calls” and routines in your own life.
  2. It is interesting that the main character, a veterinarian, chooses to hunt when his occupation is helping sick animals. Why do you think this is? What is it about the human mind that allows for these two activities to exist at the same time? Can you point to similar contradictions in your own life?
