In the beginning of the story I would have said no because of all of the crimes each individual committed seem selfish. What I mean by that is that they are only looking out for themselves and don’t care about other people. When they all get exiled from the town they become closer with one another when they start to travel. Towards the end they become friends and actually start to connect with one another and start to care for each other. In the end of the story their life ends in tragedy but they were good people and didn’t deserve what they got.
