The Corn Maiden and Other Nightmares, by Joyce Carol Oates

  • Title:  The Corn Maiden and Other Nightmares
  • Author:  Joyce Carol Oates
  • Borrowed from Fairfax County Public Library (Audiobook)
  • Started: 7/14/2017
  • Finished: 7/20/2017

This was a tough collection to get through.  10 hours of audiobook, the titular story (Corn Maiden) comprising the longest overall -- and the best.

The Corn Maiden was a great story, very hard to listen to, yet hard to stop listening to as well.  I really liked this one, although as I said it was tough to get through at times.

The others were all so-so, some better than others, but none nearly as good as the opening.
