The entire lake forms a shape resembling a peanut or a foetus, the choice of description depending, perhaps, on the kind of stay a visitor happens to be having.
The above is an excerpt from Wheels, a novel by Arthur Hailey. The novel is about auto-mobile industry; but I'm unable to understand what he means by stating the text above in bold. How can the mood of visitor decide whether the lake is shaped like a peanut or a foetus?
Can someone explain a little bit about this? I couldn't find the text available online, so I can not provide a link to it. :(
