Off Road

Way off road. This story starts off peculiar and gets stranger as it goes. Philip K. Dick might approve.

Re: Off Road

I'm not good at reading stories like this. Much like the protagonist winds up, they leave me adrift at sea--but a sea of confusion.

Anyone care to explain what in the heck this was all about? Descent into madness?


Also, I felt the language of the first two paragraphs to be rather off-putting. I speak more formally than most, but this seemed way over the top, as if the author was exercising his vocabulary far more than his writing skills.
