I listened to the unabridged audio version of The Lottery, and Other Stories by Shirley Jackson and narrated by Cassandra Campbell, Gabrielle de Cuir, Kathe Mazur, and Stefan Rudnicki.
Listening time for The Lottery, and Other Stories by Shirley Jackson is 9 hours, 34 minutes.
I am hugely disappointed with the collection of short stories contained within The Lottery, and Other Stories by Shirley Jackson. I had listened to two prior works written by Shirley Jackson, which I enjoyed. So, I was eager to listen to The Lottery, and Other Stories. I enjoyed roughly half a dozen of the short stories within this collection with “The Lottery,” (which won the O. Henry Prize Stories award in 1949) and "Charles" being my two favorites. Most of these short stories I found to be too creepy and odd.
Below is a summary for The Lottery, and Other Stories by Shirley Jackson from Audible:
A powerful collection of short stories by Shirley Jackson.
"The Lottery," one of the most terrifying stories of the twentieth century, created a sensation when it was first published in the New Yorker. "Powerful and haunting," and "nights of unrest" were typical reader responses. This collection, the only one to appear during Jackson's lifetime, unites "The Lottery" with 24 equally unusual stories. Together they demonstrate her remarkable range - from the hilarious to the truly horrible - and power as a storyteller.
I am giving The Lottery, and Other Stories by Shirley Jackson a rating of 2 stars out of 5 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!!
