Lunch

Missing heading

I did not like the way Joseph Monninger's narrator in "Lunch", stalked his wife and her
husband. Throughout the story, the narrator follows his ex-wife and her husband, without
them ever knowing that he was present. He spies on their every move. There is even one
moment in the story where the narrator, bends over a folding chair, deliberately hiding
from his ex-wife and her husband; he enjoys the advantage. I see that as being kind of
creepy and unnecessary. The narrator then says, "You realize, as you do it, that you are
invisible to him, the new husband, because you have never met him. You are a spy in your
wife's camp, you remind yourself, and you feel pleased and full of blood, your mouth open
to take in steady breaths". In this passage the narrator admits that he is pleased that he
can continue to spy on his ex and her husband without being seen, and this causes him to
breathe with excitation. He uses the advantage of being unknown to have a common
conversation with the husband, not revealing he has been following them all along. The
narrator's choice to stalk and spy on his ex-wife, and to talk with husband without
presenting himself, makes the story quite awkward, and non-enjoyable for me. He should
have be should have been man enough to at least say hi, instead running off like a weirdo.

Much of this is excellently done, although some of the parts of the paragraph are somewhat misplaced?Good first effort?
