Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Jackson is perhaps best known for her gripping and disturbingly thought-provoking short fiction, and this tape provides seven of these stories, from her best known "The Lottery" to some lesser-known but equally intense examples. The short story form is well suited to the audio format, often preferred by listeners who are reluctant to take on lengthier fiction but who still expect quality offerings. This tape will please them, and others as well. Narrator Carol Jordan, approaches her task with some deliberation and determination, which makes for an occasionally flat and narrow-ranged cadence. There is not much difference in the voices of the various characters, but overall her cheerful reading strikes a necessary contrast to the underlying eerieness and terror of the material. A good addition to audio collections.Harriet Edwards, East Meadow P.L., NY
