Common Knowledge



...The plot itself is very minimalistic though .One character, no dialogue, lots of atmospheric descriptions and the main character explaining what is going on does not leave much for the reader to wonder about. How reliable the narrator is, perhaps. We never get to see if his plan works out. The main character might well have been doing what the alien wanted. Maybe that was what the author was going for. I ended up liking the story more for the setting and the language than for the plot.
