A review by theduchess93
The Corn Maiden and Other Nightmares by Joyce Carol Oates


This was my first time reading Joyce Carol Oates and probably the last, if this is anything to go by. Each story seemed to have some kind of gimmick in the writing that distracted from any kind of character or plot development, and just served to make me feel completely detached and uninterested in whatever was happening. DNF'd about halfway through.
