it was amazing
Read from April 17 to 22, 2011


joyce carol oates is one of those authors, to me, that fits like a perfectly tailored piece of clothing. i can find nothing wrong with anything she writes. from the first word of the first story, until i finished this collection...i was enthralled, captivated and engaged.

i found these stories to be extremely disturbing. so dark and angry and dangerous. so much hate and violence. so much violation...sexual, mental. every page was suspenseful. i love her.

i am not sure that i could recommend this collection of stories to it's so disturbing i'm not sure who would want to read it. but then again, i wanted to read it...and i'm so glad i did.
