Adventuring in a new way
While I think the question of "what is an adventure narrative?" is definitely brought up when reading this book in particular, I cannot find a valid argument for why this would not be classified as such. Although fiction - which is a major difference from the other books we've read thus far in the course - why is it not an adventure? Does Trevanian not add more of an air of adventure because of the assassin aspect of the novel? This simply added to the adventure of the novel for me. But, it comes down to one's definition of adventure - of what constitutes an adventure. And this, to me, does not have a set definition. Instead, it is personalized, individualized by one's own experiences.
