The Dangers of Tradition
Reading Response #2
To be honest, I did not enjoy this short story. It has a cool plot, yet it builds up a lot of suspense yet the plot twist was awful. I didn’t like this shot story at all. This was the only book I have ever read like this, yet I just didn’t like it. It felt like this book was poorly executed with the plot twist. This was one of the most boring books I have read, and I didn’t like the characters in this short story. I don’t know why, yet nothing in the short story appealed to me. In general, this was one of the worst short stories I have read.
Overall, The Lottery by Shirley Jackson was a very dull and boring book about a dark tradition of killing a randomly selected person by being stoned to death.
