I had to read this story for class ,I didn't expect to enjoy it it started off kind off slow , as the story went on i got this kind of anticipation for the end ,even though I didn't expect the ending wich was great . The story was very detailed and a lot of foreshdowing all through the story that I didn't realize till i read it for the second time .

I read a sample of this book (the title story) on my Nook before purchasing and it was very well written so I thought I would give it a try. I heard about this author on the New Yorker Fiction podcast and they compared her writing to Shirley Jackson's. If you have read Shirley Jackson, then you know exactly what to expect from this book. O'Connor is shockingly brutal in her stories. The moral implications are very plain to see, but sometimes hard to decipher without consulting some sort of critical analysis of the story. I was impressed by the skill of this author, but the stories were so brutal and depressing (without humor, I might add) that I didn't see the fun in reading any of these stories. It wasn't enjoyable for me, but maybe for you!

O'Connor is a masterful shortstory writer. The title story and "A Late Encounter with the Enemy" are the best of the group.

Flannery O'Connor was the master of mixing the absurd with the mundane in the murky underbelly of humanity at its own base level. Her characters are always left striving to meet God at least at near half-way point of reason. Read this one, and I dare you to turn the last page without immediately starting in on page one again to pick out the small unnoticed morsels you may have missed the first time! Exceptional!

I read the sample of the book "A good man is hard to find " and really liked it a lot, so I bought it. After reading all the story I was disappointed in the turn of events. It was very depressing. At first when I read the sample, I was so pleased, and thought it was such a good realistic story of a family. Then reading the other stories in the book, I was even more disappointed, they were really sort of stupid. Now I wish I had not spent my money on the book and wish I had my money back. Really !
