I think every student should read this book. It's a small book, a quick read, and a great story. What happens in a small town that has grown addicted to tradition? It's not until the very end you find why this is so important to these town folks and what happens every year. It's a great conversation starter, and for students analyzing other books, plays, movies, it's a great story for comparison.

A truly creepy and interesting short story. Starts off with a nice, sunny day, in the end... well, read it yourself. Teaches you a life lesson... small pieces of paper with black dots on it are bad.

I really enjoyed this story. It shows how people do certain traditions and rituals, but don't know why they're doing it and what they're doing it for. Read this story!! You'll be freaked out!! Be thankful that you don't have a piece of paper with a black dot on it!!!

'The Lottery' was excellent reading. In fact I am performing it for my prose selection for forensics this year. This story really makes you think about how people perform rituals and just go thtough all the motions without really thinking about what they are doing. I highly reccomend reading it!*****
