Unit 8 Assignment 1–Natalie Zhu (15th Apr)

The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum

!: Strangely, I felt very “satisfied” when she finally decided to kill the journalist, even though killing is wrong. At first I wondered if she was going to kill the journalist or herself, and I thought if she killed herself that would be pathetic.
