    " Another story my English teacher made me read. I liked it. It has always stayed with me all these years later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aerin | 2/8/2014

    " According to the drunk hipster whose conversation I was unfortunate enough to overhear the other night, this is "a totally creepy ghost story" about "haunted wallpaper". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabrina | 1/30/2014

    " I LOVE THIS STORY... even years later I still remember all the creeping. This story really invokes in me the feeling of what it must have been like to be a woman in that time period. As well as how to deal with the possibility of mental illness or just not being understood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Antoine | 1/28/2014

    " I'll never think of creeping the same way again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Bartholomew | 1/20/2014

    " i read this story as part of my GCSE(high school) education. Never forgot about it. Brilliant book. I bought it again years later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Towens23 | 1/19/2014

    " psychologically brilliant and deceptive. not necessarily a fun read, but worth the writing style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 1/15/2014

    " The short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" is an underrated gem of early feminist literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaime | 1/4/2014

    " "The Yellow Wallpaper" is an interesting short story to read. It's a first person account of going crazy, and you feel like you are. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 12/29/2013

    " Wow! Great book, short, but great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 11/24/2013

    " Listened to this on Librivox and thought the version I listened to was read too quickly. When I was done I really had to stop and sort this one out. What a great piece of psychological work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodi Bash | 9/25/2013

    " Anything this short and this good deserves 5 stars. An excellent short story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Hunsaker | 3/27/2013

    " Of this collection, I've only read the yellow wallpaper. It's kind of creepy, but it's one of my favorite short stories. I guess I'm just facinated by people going insane. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sommer Ann | 12/17/2012

    " A compound and compelling short story that captures the feminist struggle. Best read with a following discussion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 11/30/2012

    " This books get five stars if only for the "creeping" that takes place within. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam Sawyer | 8/18/2012

    " Love this story and Perkins' story telling skills! It's hard to imagine the terror and hardship women endured, but reading The Yellow Wallpaper gives us a glimpse of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 5/2/2012

    " You don't have to be a feminist to enjoy this short story. Gilman's writing is descriptive and lovely, and the protagonist completely pulls you into her mind. You can almost see what she sees; you almost don't find her mentally ill. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Eirene | 1/22/2012

    " LOVE this story. So creepy and disturbing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsta | 1/16/2012

    " Ahhh! So freaky, awesome, GOOD! Love it! And read it in about 30 minutes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 1/13/2012

    " Incredible! The most disturbing part of this book is knowing that the "rest cure" was used quite commonly. Thanks to this book is was stopped. Chilling imagery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheri | 8/4/2011

    " An amazing piece of work for the time in which it was written. Short, precise and prescient. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 8/4/2011

    " Years after reading this short book, I can recall certain sentences and scenes as if they were floating in front of me. The Yellow Wallpaper especially has real staying power. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 7/9/2011

    " Read this when I was going through my "slow descent into madness" phase. Loved it at the time, but you definitely need to be in the right mood for it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April Isley | 6/17/2011

    " An amazing ride into the heart of a woman that pushed against the bounds of society and suffered the consequences. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayleigh | 3/25/2011

    " I just read The Yellow Wallpaper, but it was a brilliant short story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy | 2/16/2011

    " I Absolutely Loved Every Page Of It! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katharine | 1/22/2011

    " I loved The Yellow Wallpaper in high school, yet never read more of Gilman's works. I really enjoyed her short stories - although none were are morbid as The Yellow Wallpaper. I'm grateful for early feminists like Gilman. I hope I will be as courageous in my life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 11/4/2010

    " This amazing collection of stories, all written by women in the 1800's, reveal the culture for women at that time. We've come a long way, baby! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Temari | 9/25/2010

    " The short stories were pretty cool but I pretty much zoned out through the whole feminist part. Mostly because it's in no way relevant to this era of feminism. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sydney | 8/28/2010

    " A truly chilling look into the effect isolation can have on a mentally troubled person. This story terrified me when I read it in high school, and I have to give it at least some credit for defining the niche of horror I tend to write in the most. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 6/21/2010

    " Never mind the Feminine Mystique. This should be Number ONE on top of every feminist's reading list! The Yellow Wallpaper is a brilliant Gothic account of a Victorian woman's descent into psychological madness. Many years later, the novella still remains vivid and visceral in my mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/30/2010

    " My first exploration of feminist literature... I have to thank my English 102 prof for this gift; without this, I'd have never read Herland, and what a dish of a book that one is! The Yellow Wallpaper is one of my favourite short stories of all time! Madness will never be portrayed so elegantly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johanna | 11/23/2009

    " "The Yellow Wallpaper" is an extremely well-written short story that vividly depicts a young mother's descent from post-partum depression into full-blown psychosis. Powerful, disturbing, and a bit creepy. "
