The writing is very descriptive in this short story, giving the reader an almost cinematic view of the park, the neighborhood, and the characters. While the narrator is recognized quickly as being odd, then sinister, the ending is still unexpected. I wished the author had expanded this story into a novel, so I could find out what happened next. Very good read.

E'xcellent and unusually creepy short story with an unsatisfying ending (or non ending). It is not supernatural creepy but rather psychological creepy. It left me wanting more. There was a'modern Poe feeling to this.

I enjoyed the placement in the park. His description and colorful imagined states of the other park dwellers is so similar to things I have thought myself. Although the story went to a darker tangent, I would have enjoyed reading more. Stands strong as a short story!
