The Lottery was a fantastic story, probably the best short story I’ve read in a very long time. It was creepy and foreboding, especially when you couple the end with the innocent beginnings in the children’s actions. I loved it.
The rest of the stories in the collection were not of the creepy variety, which is what I had been expecting from them. They were more stories about life and while they were well-written, I had been expecting something else and therefore didn’t get as much out of them.
