Perhaps the currents of that time fol It is hard to say how this book affected me. Perhaps the currents of that time following the depression and pre World War 2 produced this morose feeling for the author and her writing. Dec 12, Barksdale Penick rated it liked it. This novella is set in a small town in Mississippi, before air conditioning and other modern conveniences.

The lead characters are quirky to the point of being unrealistic. The lead character is a mannish woman who is a shrewd business operator who shows her vulnerable side to an unlikely companion. I found the centrsl characters overdrawn, but the setting realisitc and the bit players believable. The plot and structure seemed artificial to me, at times, so I cannot give the book more than a thr This novella is set in a small town in Mississippi, before air conditioning and other modern conveniences.

The plot and structure seemed artificial to me, at times, so I cannot give the book more than a three rating. A pleasant enough read, but not powerful art. Sep 25, D. Quite a talented writer and amazingly perceptive for someone so young.

Finished Heart Going to switch to nonfiction now then come back to read Reflections Reflections was great, Sad Cafe even better. Aug 10, Becky rated it it was amazing. Beautifully written; Carson provides deep insight into the heart-breaking fragility of human nature. Another Southern writer that's not afraid to look straight into the eyes of depression without flinching. Sep 19, Heather Anderson rated it really liked it.

I love her writing, and finally with this edition I got to read all her novels. My favorite is Reflections in a Golden Eye. I love reading old books like this, especially when she uses words like "hobbledehoy". She is a very descriptive writer and a good storyteller She died young 50s. Like Jimi Hendrix, I wish she could have had time to do more.

But the five works here are amazing in themselves, and this compilation, with a timeline of the author's life at the end, is a treasure. Sep 03, Emily rated it it was amazing. My mom turned me on to Carson McCullers and I have to say that she is in my top five these days.

Maybe it's just the southern connection, but I absolutely love her writing. They are not cheerful stories by any means, but they run deep and stay with you for a while. My least favorite was Reflections in a Golden Eye. Jan 31, Lloyd Fassett added it Shelves: Not incidents, which anyone can recall, but states of mind, which are so difficult to recreate.

Apr 24, Joan rated it it was amazing. One of my absolute favourite books. I read it years ago, then read a biography of Carson McCullers which made her sound like a self-centred person. Just goes to prove the author is NOT the book. Sep 25, Dina rated it liked it Shelves: As a naturalist novel, I thought Reflections of a Golden Eye was interesting, but rather disturbing.

And Ballad of the Sad Cafe was just bizarre. All of the texts I read were well written and interesting to analyze as a student, but would I ever read them again on purpose? Maybe the first two. Dec 01, Justin rated it it was amazing. The rest of her works in this collection were quite amazing also.

Wonderful writing on the human experiences of finding yourself, loneliness, connecting with others, and ultimately dealing with our own mortality. Mar 11, Judy Vanderhule rated it liked it Shelves: I picked this because I like to read books considered "Classics". This is the kind of book you need to talk about with someone else because there are so many layers of characterization. You just want to put on your "pyschoanalyst's hat".

It is a compelling story and well told. Apr 01, Darryl rated it it was amazing. The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter: Apr 20, Sarah Koehler rated it liked it. I've read all the books in this collection -- see my individual reviews for more accurate comments. Overall, McCullers isn't my favorite, but it's good southern gothic literature if you're into that kind of thing Apr 01, Kathleen rated it really liked it.

Now that I've finished it, I like it. I can understand why it's a classic and should be widely read. However, like with chocolate, "it's not good til it's gone". It was a tough one for me. I slept soundly on more than one occasion but I'm glad I stuck with it-totally worth the effort. Jul 05, J. Dunn rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - A book about dignity.

I can't believe she wrote this when she was It has a wise old salt sort of insight into human nature about it. Very sad, but somehow affirming for all that.

Read early May 04, Laurie rated it it was amazing. For some reason, I had never read this book before. Although written in , it's themes are very relevant today. She delicately tackles race and disability. She's a wonderful writer and the story is compelling. It's definitely worth reading if you never have.

Apr 24, Diana rated it really liked it. I found it particularly timely given the race questions surrounding Obama's electability. How far we've come and how far we have yet to go. Mar 04, ABC rated it it was amazing. I really really really do. Everything she has done is gold. Full of sadness and beauty and truth and heartache and ugliness and the whole wonderful terrible world.

Oct 13, Stephanie rated it it was amazing. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is heartbreaking and luminous. McCullers' writing is exquisite, and this collection reflects many different facets of her genius. I've only made it through the first three stories so far, but McCullers is definitely among my favorite writers. Mar 29, Mrs. Hands down one of the greatest writers in the world!

All of her stories include characters that are deeply flawed and in spite of it all desire deep human connection.
