Lamb To The Slaughter
My rating out of 10 for this book is 6/10, partially because it is a bit silly, but also because one of the characters in the story is deceitful.
Here is a Cover I Think is Suitable for The Lamb To The Slaughter.
I personally enjoyed the story "The Lamb to the Slaughter", because it was funny, but at the same time had suspense involved. I also found it humorous the way Mrs Maloney killed her husband and then acted as though everything was normal and then tricked the police officers to eat the leg of lamb that she used to kill her husband. At the same time, the story made me feel irritated and annoyed. The author achieved this by making the lady kill her husband and still be witty and intelligent enough able to be deceitful and pretend to be happy and then make a big scene and force the evidence to be destroyed. I felt a bit angry, because I don't like the part where lying is involved. I don't think it is a bad story, but just a little bit wrong. In my opinion I think it is just above average.
