    Unlike the other arts, American literature has been a powerful, influential, and leading aspect of American culture. By turns sedate and mercurial and possessing a moral mind set of various social values, the American short story reveals in its pages the psyche of a growing, sprawling nation whose sense of destiny has always been larger than life. Here are seven masterpieces that will make you smile, make you frown, and leave you pondering the mystery that surrounds the soul of a great nation.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was looking to improve my American Literature experience so I selected this book. I have been very disappointed. The subject is very depressing, the topics appears to be peoples "death". People???s death or killing themselves thru literature is not my idea of a good read. The world has so many negative things happening so a book about American short stories should be more positive and upbeat. If you are a depressed person stay very clear of this book it will not be good for you.


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    No!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get out of the negative world of "Death"


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None!


    Any additional comments?

    I made a big mistake purchasing this book.
