Read “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” by Flannery O’Connor. What is your general response to this reading? You can include ideas such as the content, message, and/or style. What issue/s does the reading focus on? What can you personally relate to about this reading?

The story by O’Connor involves an egocentric grandmother that consistently lies to her family members to get things executed her way. Her lies lead to a car accident and a subsequent acquaintance with the Misfits. All the family members are shot dead, including the grandmother.

The story talks about hypocrisy, which is depicted by a grandmother who was blind to her own errs but was obsessed with how other people perceived her, including her murderer. However, beyond the hypocrisy, the reading helps the reader understand the power of transformation of the grandmother and the Misfit as the two sink the message home.

We all want to understand how others feel about us, and the story is personal since I sometimes get lost trying to find out how my friends perceive me. That is the reason why people share their personal lives through social media accounts while seeking approval from others in a functional modern lifestyle.
