On this day, it will be the real deal. Sort of. Tandem jump. You don’t really think I’ll jump out of the plane on my own, do you? Are you crazy?
btw – the indoor skydive, it’s fun.
The Horla by Guy De Maupassant
It was very short. Very intense. Could have turn into a full blown psychotic experience. I’m glad it didn’t.
Most definitely the shortest of the book club choices – pity really as it has an amazingly haunting atmosphere, you want the story to go for just a little longer. On the other, as someone who doesn’t like to be scared, it might have been just the right amount for me.
I haven’t known this before reading the book and actually before writing this review but there are few version of this story that may or may not be a reflection of Guy de Maupassant’s real life paranoia. I think I will do little more research into it.
This is a rare Gothic gem of a read.
Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
A bit of this, a bit of that, the meandering thoughts of a dreamer.
