Read in January, 2011

The ideas are simply presented and easy enough most any reader could visualize them: a person waking up disoriented after having died. I somehow found the tenses used a little strange, as sometimes it seems a memory, then at others, as if scenes were presently happening to the main character. The character was somewhat confused after their reawakening so descriptions naturally evidenced this.

The idea is interesting, yet it seemed to me like grasping for what you believe is solid or that a solidity will eventually occur, yet whatever it is still only flows as water through your fingers.

I felt it was designed to make a reader think about how they would feel, what they might do if presented with a similar situation and in that, I felt it suceeded. The “New Normal” is an excellent tale which could be expanded into a longer story or novel, a sequel of sorts, but there is enough there to be satisfying. It's an extremely thought provoking topic.
