Mind Cafe was, to say the least, a short story that will make you stop and think. Rosie is a woman who has been a human vegetable ever since an accident happened when she was 24 years old. She's been kept alive on machines, watching the rest of her family and friends grow old while she simply exists. She can communicate slightly with the outside world, but all she really wants to do is either experience a miraculous healing or die. This story deals with her actions in a place she calls the "mind cafe," a location inside her mind where she can be visited by loved ones and do almost anything a normal person can do.
There were a few typos in addition to a few sections that could have been developed or explained a bit more, but overall, this was a very emotional read that makes you connect with Rosie. It doesn't attempt to push any agendas on the reader such as religion or euthanasia, so you don't have to be worried about that. I highly recommend this short story to those who enjoy a somewhat sad story that makes you think a bit. It's a very good read, worth the few minutes that it will take you to read it.
