This is one of my absolute favorite short stories! I love following the narrator on her slow decline to insanity as she obsesses about the yellow wallpaper...

I had forgotten about this story, which I read many years ago and loved. It is a masterpiece of psychological horror. Will probably dream of yellow wallpaper and a creeping woman tonight! *shudder*

There are some really good stories about the descent into madness. This is one of them. A relly fun story that gets you to thepoint quickly. Not a long novel. A short story that packs a big punch.

I only read this because it was referenced in American Horror Story, season one. Short story, very weird and written great!

I read this short story in Lit class in college this past semester. It was amazing! Will not spoil it for those who have not read it, but I am glad the wife found an escape, of sorts. Look onYouTube, there is a video of this as well but watch it after you have read the story!
