Twisted short story

Perhaps a cautionary tale. Or indulgent nonsense. A stranger punches you and you socialise with them as if they were friends? Well written of course but the description is relentless. Method writing? Try something a bit more inspiring if you know whats good for you. But who does?

How Weird is this ?

I enjoyed listening to this audio book and love the reader. It was an interesting story- but can I say I enjoyed it? I am not sure. I felt the couple to be very naive and so the ending should not have been such a surprise. It was. I have no idea why it should end like this :(
