The lawyer of the Martian, who is the protagonist, is a young is at the critical stage of life that must assume its responsibility towards life. As it is natural at this stage, not known very well what she wants and is afraid. Fear is a constant in his character, and the author well describes him very when it tells the anecdote where the protagonist enters an amusement park to the ghost train five years only!. To the just imagine the fear that you may feel a five year old boy in this one situation already has a very clear figure of what this meant for the protagonist in certain situations. Is a great virtue of the book having achieved this anecdote, because being the central theme of the book the conquest of independence, in advance places us in an area where the fear is something that cannot be avoided because to find our independence in life we are in unknown terrain.
By more adults that we create in this stage of life, with law degree inclusive, the truth is that we are like a child who have been left alone in an amusement park. Regarding this topic, an aphorism that we highlight of the book is that the men return to be children when they are frightened (in fact, I think that we never leave children, there will always be unknown situations that remind us of this part of our origin, what happens is that we always keep a mask that protects us from the outside world). More important than fear itself, which is something inevitable in many occasions, is the position assumed in front of him: the protagonist from the beginning recognizes it as a being present, always stays aware of this situation and, however, goes ahead. From this point view the book is listed as one of those looking to leave a teaching regarding the conquest of independence for young people. Here fear is not something negative, something that fights directly, but is recognized as inevitable, something that we cannot deny, but by what we can not let us frighten.
Another important aspect of the lawyer of the Martian is that, even if you are unsure exactly what he wants, the knows very well what he wants not: doesn’t want to be as they have been most of their relatives, lawyers of divorces and labour cases, where always defend the purported divorcee and employers. This is where comes another character to symbolize an important aspect of the book: the grandfather of the lawyer. MSCOs opinions are not widely known. He represents that family tradition, the is a character in hard character, which knows no reasons and only thinks about the future, knows very well which is the right path, is the representation of society that seeks to have the key to security in life and, what is worse, the meaning of life, when we talk about the typical man model, serious man, with his family and his employment stable, that leaves absorb by this scheme, as if stability is the ultimate goal that should be sought in life.
