Question:

Think About It

“Ausable did not fit any description of a secret agent Fowler had ever read.” What do secret agents in books and films look like, in your opinion? Discuss in groups or in class some stories or movies featuring spies, detectives and secret agents, and compare their appearance with that of Ausable in this story. (You may mention characters from fiction in languages other than English. In English fiction you may have come across Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, or Miss Marple. Have you watched any movies featuring James Bond?)

Answer:

It is easy to recognize a detective whom we see in fictions and movies. He wears a long coat, a hat and dark goggles with usually a cigar in his hand. He is handsome and smart, for e.g. James Bond. But detective Ausable was totally different. He is a fat fellow and does not look mysterious at all. He is also not wearing clothes like a detective of fictions and movies. We can compare him with Vijay, the hero of the TV serial of that name. There is a marked difference between the two.
