Book review - "Short Stories"

"Short Stories" by Langston Hughes
My grade: B

This is a really great collection of short stories, and I believe, it is a complete collection of all the short stories Hughes ever wrote. The stories are very well written and largely indicative of the time and setting they were written in. They tend, however, to get somewhat boring and repetitive if you read one story after another, like a regular novel. Perhaps this collection is best read one story at a time, with pauses in between.
