Contents of the Dead Man's Pocket
I had to read this book in English class with a partner. I'm quite a big fan of suspense so I took an immediate liking towards the short story. When I started reading it, I found the main character, Tom, interesting. He neglects his wife Clare and his life around him, focusing on his job at Wholesale Groceries. As he started to get onto the ledge where his paper was at, I started to feel nervous for him and I had many thoughts running through my mind. Thankfully, when Tom made it back into his apartment, I felt relief. I also felt happy for Tom because he finally figures out he was wasting his whole life doing something other than spending time with his wife. He races out the door to find her in the last part. This short story should now remain a favorite of mine thanks to my English class.
