All of his novels are dense and difficult but, unless my memory is faulty, this is the only one written in this particular way. Furthermore, some of the repetition, for example ‘Ossipon, nicknamed Doctor’, occurs on subsequent pages in the text, and, for me, it is absurd to think Conrad wouldn’t have noticed. This suggests that these flaws were perhaps intentional, that it was a style choice. However, one is then, of course, faced with coming up with some way of justifying that style
One night in the short story “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” written by W.D. Wetherell, the narrator realized that doing what he loves and being who he truly is comes before any significant person in his life. The narrator was obsessed with both Sheila Mant and fishing so if he wasn’t thinking about one it would be the other. On the way down to their date, the narrator found out that Sheila Mant thought fishing was stupid and boring while he could not live without it. During the story, the narrator decided to let down a fishing line while Sheila was not paying attention and this is where he started to face a dilemma.
Most people don’t understand what leisure is. They often think that they should not take time off because that would mean that they would not be making money. As in A River Runs Through It, Norman explains how three individuals all perceived leisure time and how they spent it. Rev. MacLean had a clear understanding of leisure time and labor time allowing his boys, Norman and Paul, to go fishing after they were done with their school work.
For Instance, when the narrator tries to Sheila by telling her about fishing, she says that she hates fishing. This causes the boy to change his identity and not being who he truly is. After trying hard to get sheila to like him, she goes over to him and says “You´re a funny kid you know that?” (5). This is a good realization for the character because he realizes that things will not always work out, even if you try hard. The narrator gave up several things including cutting the line and changing his identity and ended up with nothing.

In this case, her convenience is more important than the truth.
During the 1920’s, the American Dream wasn't all about peace, hope, and the pursuit of happiness. Around this time, it transitioned to being an all about money and seeing how far up in social class you could rise. Money was top priority around this time, and if you didn't have it, you hadn't completed the American Dream.

The novels are set in the Middle Ages when the Knights Templar were some of the most powerful of secret societies. Captivating as they are, they are not that easy to describe though Katherine Kurtz has variously used the term Crypto-history to describe the series. However, the novels may be placed in the historical fantasy genre though they do not fit so snugly given that their setting is more modern. Nonetheless, for any historical fiction buff, these novels are great with their historical themes and references that the author most probably infused into the works from her Medieval Studies Master of Arts degree.
