Olden by James Newman

Olden - James Newman

 

Our senior citizens. What role do they play in modern society? Do we value them enough or are we somewhat relieved when they head off to the nursing home? Wouldn't you be pissed if that happened to you?

This short story made me think about all those things, all the while shrinking away from each fresh horror these seniors were perpetrating. That's right, the seniors were doing the perpetrating. :)

I loved the way this story was presented and even though it was short, the characters were well developed and complicated. Once again. I am impressed by Mr. Newman. Highly recommended!
