5 thoughts on “ISABELLA BLAKEMAN: Mourning

    1. I don’t read this as a “puzzle” story. I think it’s simply the presentation of a woman who is not sad her husband died, but needs everyone else to think she is. That could imply murder, insurance fraud, social pressures to keep the marriage together, or some other interpretation. But ultimately, the reason she isn’t sad is not the story: the story is about her acting. The rest, to me, is an imagination game.

      Some stories are stronger as “imagination games”; some story are stronger as “puzzles”. Up to you what you prefer!
