Short Stories

I want you to read "Nightfall" (you can find this as an attachment at the bottom of this page) and two of the other stories I have provided below. When you are done I want you to blog about them. 
One paragraph for each story: 
Summarize each story, talk about what you liked and disliked about it. 
Does the story have a 'twist'? What is it? Did you see it coming? 
What did you notice about the style that is different than your typical novel length story? 

The Last Question, by Isaac Asimov 

The Most Dangerous Game, by Richard Cornell

The Ransom of Red Chief, by O. Henry

The Lottery, by Shirley Jackson

The Black Cat, by Edgar Allen Poe

The Cask of Amontillado, by Edgar Allen Poe
