Short Stories

Post by Guest on Wed Aug 11, 2010 8:47 pm

For school this year, i'm reading a lot of short stories for homework.

As was said by my teacher last year, short stories have to be strange and will often hurt your mind because there's not even ten pages to get the point across.

Just wondering which short stories you've read, and what you think of them.
so far i've read

The Elevator,
The Lottery
The Worlds Most Dangerous Game,
The Necklace
and
The Scarlet Ibis (really sad,)

oh and a few stories by Poe

I started reading a short story in English class while evrybody was working, but I don't remmeber the name. I only read it because my teacher said that I could if it was in English so I didn't have to do really easy exercises like "Fill the gaps with the verb in brackets in Past Simple". I didn't even finish it...

If you ever get the chance to, whatever you do, DON'T READ ANYTHING BY EDGAR ALLAN POE!!! In a word, they're all disturbing.

And he killed her, and buried her in his wall. It makes me kinda glad he's not alive anymore.

I haven't read Allan Poe's stories, but a friend of mine has and she likes them.
