The Shawl

Title: The Shawl
Author: Cynthia Ozick
Publisher: Highbridge
ISBN: 9781598877120
Why Read?: For Fun

Thoughts: The Shawl actually comprises two stories, "The Shawl" and its sequel, "Rosa".  "The Shawl" is very short and is just not the type of writing that appeals to me.  "Rosa" was much better (partly because it was much longer and thus more fleshed out all around).  Both, though, were filled with metaphor and simile, almost to the point of supersaturation.

Rating: 3 stars
