Editor’s First Impression

By Linda Schoales, editor

Jun 26, 2010: The first entry is fairly short, and involves a trip to the grocery store. Just a slice of life, and a person "on the dole" observing the people around him.

Mostly Aimless

By Thedude3445, member

Oct 23, 2018: This story is about the life of an unemployed man living in the suburbs in England, laying about and hanging out with friends. And . . . that’s pretty much it.

There isn’t any overarching plot or much characterization or too many happenings. It’s just the protagonist (apparently the author himself, making this all nonfiction) making some observations and trying to live a worry-free life. Sometimes that’s nice, and a few of the chapters have stuck with me in the time since I read this story. I wouldn’t say it’s much worth reading through it all, though. The narrator is certainly characterized through his observations, but everyone around him is so thin that it’s hard to get a real sense of what they are like, and for a story that largely consists of meeting up with mates, that’s a big flaw.

At only fifteen short chapters, though, it’s a pretty quick read, so if you like slice-of-life observational pondering, or want a time capsule to turn-of-the-decade life in England, you might want to check this out.
