Flannery O'Connor's writing style is distinct, and about halfway through the collection really started growing on me. Her stories, however, are incredibly bleak and have themes that are pertinent so it just kind of made me depressed to read story after story of this. I think she'd be best presented in an anthology of Southern writing or something, but reading her entire short story works in one book is a bit much.
