Gathering the courage to tell his father that he was going to go fishing with his friend was hard for the young man to do because he knows it would change their regular routine of fishing together and possibly hurt his father. While contemplating on how he should tell his father, the young man thought, “It was a very serious thing” (16). In contrast to all the long sentences, the fact that this sentence is short emphasizes the importance of how the young man’s new idea of going with his friend instead of his father changes his relationship with his father. However, the young man and father’s relationship won’t completely change because they will always have a strong foundation, which they created when the young man was still a kid and they spent a lot of time together. The young man and the father spent so much time together while the man was a kid to the point that “his father had always preferred his company to that of men and he had always preferred his father’s company to that of the other guys” (20-22).

This novel tells the story of how the community of Fort Repose puts aside their normal social boundaries and prejudice to come together to achieve a common goal: survival. Pat Frank uses difficult settings, challenging conflicts, and indirect characterization to convey his theme that during a catastrophe, a community must work together to survive. First of all, the formidable settings help convey the theme by showing that the characters are working together. For example, during the August heat, the fish stop biting because they swim to the bottom of the river bed to keep cool.

The older fish says to the two young fish, “Morning boys. How’s the water?” As they swim away, one young fish says to the other, “What the hell is water?” Wallace explains that humans share a commonality with the young fish in that they go about their day-to-day lives completely unaware of the obvious. He believes that, because people are so self-focused, they often take the most significant things in life for granted.
In connection, his trust in others is also demonstrated in this situation as he is forced to choose a replacement for the king he killed. With little thought, Perseus chose to crown Dictys as the new ruler. Dictys was, in a sense, Perseus's second father during his childhood. He nourished him, protected him, and helped him learn how to make a living by fishing. The reason this decision shows his trust in others is because Perseus could have easily taken the position for himself, but instead chose to trust somebody else who was close to him with the job.
I knew he would win. When Chris demolished Mike Barbour in the swimming competition, he demonstrated what I already knew: a cognitive disability does not limit one’s athletic ability. After all, Mike Barbour’s athletic skill is irrelevant when it comes to swimming. “If you’re going to be a swimmer you gotta swim” (Crutcher 260).
