A Simple Heart (New Directions Bibelot)man, i really didn’t like this story.
it was as if the narrator was a robot.  i realize he’s known for being an “exit author” who doesn’t let his influence show, but i felt as if he was just describing a piece of art without a soul.

the story was such a disappointment.  i’m not gonna go into the conclusion, but when you think the story builds up and will ultimately have a worthy ending, it won’t.
