So many books (you know the rest)

Complete Stories of Flannery O’ Connor
by Flannery O’ Connor
Published in 1971 (I finished it on December 12, 2005)
I got this book for class and we only ended up reading about three of her stories. Since I had the book, I decided to read them all. Her work is good, though not “great” for me. I particularly enjoy her use of simile and the clever descriptions of people. What really worked for me was her writing on a sentence and passage level. What didn’t always work was the complete story. Her style was seemed to be a time where tales were simply snippets of stories, but not full stories. I suppose that’s why they are called Short Stories. If anything, almost all her stories were very interesting and there are many that I’d be inclined to read again.
