Review: The Visitor’s Room – E. H. James
Amy’s life is as normal as it gets. The monotony of her world never changes. It’s always the same, always boring, and never interesting enough to draw her attention. Granted, at times, she wishes for something different. To have each moment of every day feel a little more meaningful for her. Unfortunately, that’s just wishful thinking.
Drifting through her life, she’s content to live each day as it comes. Her life is always full of a myriad of characters, flouncing in and out of it as time goes by. Yet there’s one thing that’s always constant, something she can’t quite herself of. An incessant dripping sound that follows her wherever she goes.
At times, she wonders if she’s losing her mind. She lives in the psych ward, after all. She’s seeing and hearing things on occasion, but she keeps telling herself that it’s most likely her imagination working overtime. Still, she can’t help but to question as to whether things really are what they seem. Somehow, some way, she knows she’ll get to the bottom of things. The question is, does she really want to know the answers to the questions she’s afraid of asking in the long run?
This short story was quite intriguing. Amy was a very likeable character, in all honesty. The story pulls you in from the very beginning, and takes you for a little ride. Granted, the ending was a little unexpected, but I do think it allows for the story be expanded. It would honestly be nice to see what happens next to Amy and the other character’s. I enjoyed the story very much.
If Amy thought this day on the psych ward would be just like any other she would be sadly mistaken.
For although everything seemed normal, well as normal as a place like that could be, there was something that was not quite right. That she couldn’t put her finger on it only made it all the more perplexing.
But the real question was, should you go asking questions you aren’t prepared to hear the answer to?
