The Lottery
The Lottery by Shirley Jackson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read this as a free PDF because another review I was reading earlier linked to it.

I’ve never heard of this story prior. But even after reading Battle Royale and The Hunger Games this story is still kind of terrifying. And what’s terrifying is everyone’s mentality.

The mentality of the inevitable. Of the “it’s always been this way”. Because there are STILL to this day people with that kind of mentality and thought process.

For a short story it’s really good.

Buy it here:

Amazon|Barnes & Noble

This is where I read it from:

Middlebury.edu
