Summary

It's just a hideously papered room. At least that's what everybody thought. But when a woman suffering from a nervous condition is housed in the room, things begin to surface from the wallpaper. Things that seem familiar but are best left quiet and undisturbed.

Great story!

I loved the story. Although I wish there was a female narrator since the story is told by a woman from a woman's point of view.

Should have been read by a woman

I don’t understand when choices like this are made. However, It was a good story and creepy too.

Great story, horrible narration.

Really enthralling short story. The narrator is a poor choice, however. Overly dramatic and almost shouting. Not sure why a woman narrator wasn’t chosen for a feminist classic written as the diary of a female character.
