The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman,Elaine Hedges

It is the same woman, I know, for she is always creeping, and most women do not creep by daylight. 

 

Charlotte Perkins Gilman

 

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (born July 3, 1860) is best known for her short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, in which the narrator's journal entries document her psychotic break.

The Yellow Wallpaper
The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman 1892? Really? Damn, this was good. This is how short stories are suppose to be done. Creepy. Building dread. Subtle terror and growing madness. Excellent!

The Yellow Wall-Paper
The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman,Elaine Hedges

From the first page (and I think this gives a good idea of the story's direction):
"If a physician of high standing, and one's own husband, assures friends and relatives that there is really nothing the matter with one but temporary nervous depression,—a slight hysterical tendency,—what is one to do?"
Written in first person, this chronicled a wife's forced seclusion by her (physician) husband. John didn't want her to write, go outside, or do *anything.* This chronicles her mental deterioration.
Throughout history, and sadly even today, women have lacked autonomy- over their lives, bodies, etc. This story is an excellent example of that. I don't see how I could give this any less than a 5.
We continue to see this today with the fight women's healthcare.

This is for the locked room mystery square.

Bingo card additions
The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman,Dawn Harvey
Cujo - Stephen King,Lorna Raver,Simon & Schuster Audio
The Roll-Away Pumpkin - Junia Wonders,Daniela Volpari

I keep filling that bingo card a bit randomly..

 

The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman,Dawn Harvey 

I came across a different narration of the yellow wallpaper and I loved it. The narrator's voice nailed the creepy factor and even though I knew the story I loved every minute of it. Here is my original review of the story.

 

Cujo - Stephen King,Lorna Raver,Simon & Schuster Audio 

I first read Cujo when I was 13 or 14 I don't remember very well. What I do remember however was the nightmares that book gave me. I cannot look at a Saint Bernard dog and not get the chills. To this day it's one of the scariest books I have ever read and for the sake of the bingo I re-visited that book and purchased the audiobook. It's still scary but not as scary as I remember it. The narrator was rather good too, I must add.

The Roll-Away Pumpkin - Junia Wonders,Daniela Volpari 

This is a cute little story about a girl that chases her pumpkin with gorgeous illustrations!
