    Blah

    If i knew what a waste of time and .99 cents thos would be i would have flushed the money down the toilet and went about my night. They arent joking when they say a short story...only 40 ish pages. Not into it. Would probably be an awesome author if he wrote a longer story.

    Jack Erickson has written other short stories, but this is the first that I have read. We meet a teenage stalker, name unknown, who finds himself obsessed with the same woman over the course of a decade. His friend suggests following someone for fun. Why not? Who isn’t curious about what people’s lives are like, what they do and where they go? He sees a beautiful girl near a bus station. Captivated by her beauty, he has chosen his prey.

    The story jumps from the boy being 14 to college age. He unexpectedly runs into her again at his summer job where they both work. Sure enough, the woman, Alexis, is once again the focus of the stalker’s attention. He goes out of his way to run into her. His persistence on learning more about her and watching her from afar fuel his fascination.

    We are propelled into the future again, to the stalker’s next career and how he meets Alexis again. As the stalker becomes more obsessed, he turns the notch up on his stalking activities that result in a major twist at the end.

    I find it hard to write enough about the story without giving away the ending or re-writing the author’s narrative. Although it was only 20 pages, the story still played out with continuity and a surprise ending. I was very intrigued from the beginning as the plot kept my attention and I could not put it down. The author did an impressive job of taking what could have been a long, drawn out narrative into a succinct and exciting page-turner. We do not learn the main character's name but that does not distract from the story. Mr. Erickson tapped into feelings that most people have experienced: curiosity. Unfortunately for the narrator, he turned curiosity into a dangerous fixation.
