My Thoughts

As you can guess this is an off the wall story. Though surprisingly not as creepy as you might think when you read the summary. It's really about a man facing the consequences of his actions in life. The story comes full circle in this really interesting way. I always like when short stories come full circle. I think it's so poetic for some reason. Overall it's a short yet intriguing read. I may have to read it again some time so I can figure out why it's called Other People. Not that the reason for the title really matters, it's just a little bit of a puzzlement for me at the moment.
