Well, this is not so much a book, but a short story...
I have read it a few times and seen the movie, and I still don't really get it.
What are some thoughts about this story???

Sorry about that. Link: and my little dissertation--:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lottery

So, every June 27, everyone gathers in town square for the 'Lottery'
It goes along with the male head of every family picking a paper out of a box, and if he gets the paper with the dot...
the paper with the dot, and enough other papers to cover his family are put back in the box...
The family picks out a paper, and the one who get the dot *wins*...

Then at the end, you learn *winning* means they are stoned...
