Reviews of Faithless: Tales of Transgression

Overall customer rating: 5.000

She is a miracle; it is a delight to read

by BobG2 on Apr 5, 2010

As she does in her longer works, we come so close to the the people she submits to us, characters , with whom we breathe the same air, groan as they do, and shrink from them in horror when their fury comes clear. The range of the stories go from farming fokls from NY state to wealthy businessmen in NY City, from women bent on revenge and those who give of their love always. Reading her is a .consecration to literature, as I'm sure all who read her will agree.


Heads Up!

by JustLoveit on Mar 25, 2008

True to Joyce Carol Oates "Faithless," does not disappoint the reader, nor does it let you space out for a moment! If you looked up the definition of faithless, I'm sure you could not come up with as many different scenarios to define the term as Ms. Oates has. If you are a fan then you already have surmised that these short stories are not limited to a husband-wife relationship. Most of the stories take place "somewhere" in upstate New York, but you could imagine the setting in any small American town. You in addition to your emotions are kept on edge as you read along and as you feel for the teenage boy not true to the self he should be, or when you want to scream, "beware," to the lady lawyer Marina, and how you will miss "Mamma," along with the two daughters she abandoned, in addition to all the other stories. As with all of her other books, this is a must read!
