“‘According to the List’ is a short story that reflects the personal views of the author in terms of many of life’s question. What would you do if you won the lottery? If you were stranded on an island? What do you need in life in order to be happy? A writer may drown themselves away from the world, but the words will always be there. Written in a poetic narrative style venture through this short story along with D.e.e.L and his outlook on the word and the beauty that it truly holds. Bliss is out there for everyone.” (description from Goodreads)
Even though this is listed as a piece of fiction, there may ever well be much of the author in these words. As the title suggests, this narrative follow a list-like pattern. it shines light on the narrator’s aspirations and some random tangents a mind can wander on.
I could relate well wit the narrator, not only because he is a writer, but also because he seemed to dwell on many thoughts I find myself considering often, as well.
This might be a short piece, but D.E.E.L’s style is one to be appreciated, for its beautiful simplicity and poetic feel. It was a great introduction to this author’s work, for me as a reader.
