Tor.com Thursdays: short story review

TOR.COM THURSDAYS - THE LOUD TABLE

Hello lovelies! Here is my latest Tor.com Short Story review. This week’s tale was a strange one, but I still enjoyed it!

Interested in joining? See below for what to do to be a part of it!

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

  • On Thursday, I will pick a short story from Tor.com for us to all read…
  • The next Thursday, we will all review the Tor.com story that was picked the previous week…
  • The review can be in depth or short and snappy! There are no boundaries on how you want to review the story…
  • After my own personal review of that weeks story, I will post the next story to read for next week…
  • And on and on it goes…
  • Please remember to tag back to my post (pingback!!) if you join in on this meme, that way I can read all your reviews!

THIS WEEK’S TOR.COM STORY WAS: THE LOUD TABLE BY JONATHAN CARROLL

Mini-review:

I have a huge, irrational love for old people, so when I saw this was about the elderly I really wanted to read it! This started out nicely, is was slow and mundane, but in a good way.

Towards the middle, there were some comments on aging that really got to me. I hate the thought of getting old and I hate the thought that old people think they’re useless (because I personally think they’re great) so some of the things said really touched me.

Then the twist happened and it was totally left field. I liked the twist but it didn’t fit into the story very well, in my opinion, considering this books starts off as though it’s going to be about a group of old men trying to find a new coffee joint to enjoy… but I guess this is a sci-fi themed website, so what did I expect?

What we do for one another is a mystery.
