Theme


There are a lot of themes in the novel Dead Water Zone however, the most visible theme is Survival. Survival is shown all throughout the book while Paul is on the search for his brother and he must face many life threatening opponents.
"Paul dreamed machinery. The oiled push of steel pistons, the rustle of rubber hosing, the low roar of a powerful furnace. He walked into his brothers room. Sam sat on the edge of the bed, curling barbells towards his chest-right arm, left are, one two, impossible. Sam was too weak to be lifting them. 'Im getting stronger,' Sam said. One, two, one, two, effortless. 'But how?' Paul asked. 'Secrets are subatomic,' Sam replied with an enigmatic smile. 'What does that mean?' Paul demanded.. How typical of Sam to say something clever and not explain it. 'What does that mean?' 'Look.' Sam lowered the barbells to the floor and began peeling off his layers of clothing, one sweatshirt, then another, then another-all the time getting skinnier and skinnier. 'You don't have to do this,' Paul said anxiously. 'You dont have to, Sam. Stop!' But Sam kept stripping off his shirts until he came to the very last one. Paul knew what was underneath. 'Don't!' he shouted. 'Sam, please, I'm sorry!' 'Paul,' hes brother said 'watch.' There was a blinding flash of skeletal white, but something else, too, something mettalic. 'No!' Paul shouted. 'No, no, no!' He clamped his eyes shut but the scalding brightness filled his dream vision, white intense as a cameras flash,then slowly faded to the dark colour of deep water.
