Short story: The Lottery

I am planning to read The Hunger Games series some time before the first movie comes out in March. In fact, I read the first couple chapters of the eponymous first book of the series, just to make sure it was tolerable and that I could go through with my read-then-see-movie plan. Actually, Alan read the chapters out loud to me from his Kindle because I, in my lazy and sleepy state, asked him to and he obliged (he has already read the whole series, btw.). Verdict: It seems pretty interesting and exciting, although it may take me a bit to get used to the fact that it is written in first-person present tense. I tend to dislike first-person narration, and I HATE WHEN STORIES ARE WRITTEN IN PRESENT TENSE. But I'll get over it. Lol.

Aaaanywayyyyyy, I stopped reading The Hunger Games for now because I want to finish the volume of The Wheel of Time series that I am currently reading (WoT 4 LIFE SUCKAHHHHHHHHS!) before really diving into the HG books. But I did also read the first few HG chapter reviews/read-alongs at Mark Reads, which is an absolutely hilarious and wonderful site and you should go read all of the Mark Reads Harry Potter posts, they are amazing. (Actually, that reminds me that I need to do a whole blog post dedicated to Mark Reads. But I digress.) ANNNDDDDD getting back to the topic of this post FINALLY, in his reading of the first chapter of HG, Mark mentions how The Reaping brings to mind a short story called The Lottery (a.k.a. the title of this blog post) (p.s. don't read that Wikipedia article for The Lottery yet because it has spoilerrrrrs omg no not that).

Naturally, I went and found the story and read it because I was intrigued and because I ♥ short stories due to my short attention span, as explained in this previous post, lolololol oh. Anywhoo, Mark is correct as always because he is the most awesomest and it is indeed a really really good short story sooooooooo without any further incoherent rambling ado go read The Lottery by Shirley Jackson right HERE!! You're welcome.
