1. The signal man
The man went to a train station. and he saw someone who shook hands with saying 'Below there! Look out! For God's sake, clear the way!' and he thought that their person was a signal man. so he shouted to him. but he didn't answer. after a few minutes later, he finally made him come to his place. and the signal man asked to him why he called him with annoying face. but the man noticed that he was not this signal man so he explained the situation. after he listen his story, his face was dark and he promised him to say a secret tomorrow, expelling the man from his office. the next day man finally heard that the man who shook hand to him was a ghost. and the ghost was to warn someone's dead every time to the signal man. and next day, the man heard the news that the signal man was died by train. and according to testimony of the train driver, he shouted to the signal man to 'Below there! Look out! For God's sake, clear the way!' That is, actually the ghost just predicted the signal man's death. actually, it was hard to understand the story when I read this book for the first time. so I had to read it three times. also I surprised about the reversal in the end. this book is really dreamlike and, chilling. so it's looks like a horror genre to me. I couldn't understand the meaning of the ghost. the signal man thought he let know him others dying, but finally the prediction was just about himself. I really wonder the meaning.
2. Across the Bridge - Graham Greene
In this book 'I' am just observer. and the main character is Mr Joseph Calloway. he is a millionaire who earned money by lying to poor people. so he was escaping from police, for a long time. without his volition, he should have gone away from his original village, which is over the bridge where he was living at the time. he didn't have any friends, families but there were just a dog which came with him. he reminded his hometown by the dog, but he always bother him. one day two police man came to the village. On noticing their status, however, he ran away. and few days later, 'I' listened the new that he was near the village. and one more time the polices asked 'me' where he is, and 'I' didn't say anything. but Mr Calloway's dog ran toward him, finally he dead, by heart attack from surprising about dog's approaching. I think Mr Calloway is poor a little. definitely he was a kind of criminal, but he looks alone in the village where there are anyone who are his friends. even he couldn't communicate with the dwellers because he didn't know how to speak spanish which was used by people in the village. also his final death was so tragic. I read more masterpiece, I'm likely to get more imagination.
