My favorite story was probably The LandLady. The story was about a woman who is a taxidermist and put a sign up on her door saying her house was a b&b to lure young men to poison them and fill them with stuffing. I don’t connect with it. I love that she is a homicidal homo sapien. The author did a good job using text clues to show what would happen / give the reader suspense.
Today in class we were asked to write about a time in our lives where we felt a connection to the story: The Landlady. I immediately thought of the time I was roofied at a party with some friends. The reason I connect that with this story is because the old witch like lady poisons a young boy. I don’t really remember the experience except for that it was scary and I felt very taken advantage of. I think that its really sad because the boy was just looking for a place to stay on his first big business trip. He was so looking forward to what he had ahead and the old women took it away from him.
Part 1- The Story of and Hour is a story about a women who is told that her husband “died” in a fatal railroad disaster but she later finds out he was fine all along. I personally think the story was written very well and appropriately for the time era it was set in. I was kind of confused about whether she was happy or sad that her husband died. The story isn’t a genre that i typically read but i do like the story. I am conflicted on whether her reaction was justified or not. I personally am very glad that life for women has changed drastically and I don’t know what it would’ve been like living back then because life was controlled by men.
