There is a summary and response on “No One’s a Mystery”
No One’s Mystery is talking about the eighteen-year- old girl-narrator and Jack. The story begins with a present that Jack gives to the girl for her eighteenth birthday. It was a five-year dairy. The young girl and men were sitting together, when Jack saw his wife’s car. He pushed down girl onto the floor, because he was afraid of his wife. He did want his wife to see him with other girl sitting together. When his wife drove out, man let girl o get back into the seat.
He said that her wife would never look over her shoulder. Lack told that knew this Eke knew about what the narrator will write in her dairy. He said that she would write about him.

He thought that there Is only one future, the future he described. In spite of this the narrator was thinking that only she was right. Response When I read this story the first question which I asked myself was what Is the meaning of this story. What did Elizabeth Talent want to say? The young eighteen-years-old girl and the man whose name was Jack were lovers, I hint.
Of course they were secret lovers. They both were afraid of his wife. In spite of this they continued to go together. For the one hand I think their behavior was amoral. He was married but have the young girl, who was his lover. From the other hand I think they loved each other. When two hearts are beating together, it is not matter what social status they have. They simply love each other. Think that imagination of future can tell a lot for me about Jack and narrator. The girl was very romantic.
I can even say that she was looking on the world through the pink glasses. She was dreaming about her and Jack future together. In contrast to narrators was realist. I even think not realist but pessimist. He was thinking there is not future for them. May be he did not want to divorce with his wife. May be he 1 OFF I think that the meaning of this story is that every person in this world has his own imagination of the future. It depends on character, on way of living, on people who surround this person. No one knows about future.
We can only imagine it. I can discus my future with someone and the result will be totally different. But it will help me in the future. With the help of other I will know about alternatives in my life. I will not be very surprised when something will be different of my imagination of future. The same is in this story. The narrator will know that there are much more then one way of future living. In my opinion no one can foretell his or her future. There are a lot of different projections of our future and we did not know which one would be right.
