In addition to shaping characters, liao hongji also brings into the judgment of industrial structure and social value from the daily life of sea people. For example, hai yongbo's children know very little about their father's occupation, and even slightly reject it. "From the time I came into contact with the sea, the social atmosphere has been like this." , but the risks are high, and due to the changes of the times and industries, the limited fishery income obtained from nature cannot keep up with the vigorous development of other industries. "This is an unavoidably distorted value in a capitalist society, laughing at the poor but not prostitutes, without thinking about the value of this industry other than monetary income."
Looking back at "The last sea hunter", hai yongbo's mother gave all her family property and gifts to let the young hai yongbo set foot on a boat to learn to seek the sea. The households will definitely build the building first. At that time, the people who went Illustrator Art Work to the sea were promising children, but the age of the most abundant fishery seems to have passed.” speaking of melancholy, liao hongji was a little helpless. He once asked several old captains, whether have you thought about letting your children inherit the mantle? "Most of them say 'better not!'"
Liao hongji said that the characters in his novels must blend their own traces, "But a person's character cannot have only one aspect, just like we can't be brave all the time, people are sometimes impetuous and sometimes cowardly, sometimes blunt and sometimes wise." like all kinds of fish species in the ocean, liao hongji uses words as a net to capture those qualities that are familiar to you and me.
