Book: The Lottery
Author: Shirley Jackson
This is my 27th read of the year
This graphic novel is the telling of Shirley Jackson's short story - "The Lottery". This is a story of a town who on the outside seems like a quiet peaceful place until it is time for the Lottery. All the towns people's names are put into a box and one is drawn. Then the children's names are entered and another drawn. And what happens to those who are drawn is something the whole town must live with after.
This was an interesting book. There were not enough words or information for me to really piece it together in this fashion. I have decided to check out the actual short story just to get the feeling that I understood exactly what drives the people for the Lottery. Although, what I might find is that it is never spelled out - like it was here. It was clear what happened, but not why. We shall see.
