One of the top ten short stories I've ever read. The effect lingers long after the reading. ( )

Es fácil entender como esta es considerada como una de las mas épicas historias de terror. No es que la historia de por sí de miedo, es la implicación de lo que un simple deseo puede acarrear. ¿Puede haber algo mas aterrador que la idea de ser capaz de traer a un ser querido de regreso de la muerte y que ya no sea lo que era en vida? No lo creo. ( )

Was quite disappointed with this one. Not scary at all, and actually pretty boring. ( )

One famiry was very poor,so the monkey's paw ware given to them by man.
And the monkey's paw said to them about it can grant three wishes.
The famiry use that paw but many terrible thing happen.

This book was horror,I don't like so much.
I thought the monkey's paw is not goot tool.
So if I get that,I will never use it! ( )

The family named White was very poor,one day they got the monkey's paw.Monkey's Paw are said to grant people three wishes.
Their wishies is come true,but they eventually become an unfortunate consequense...

I don't know about monkey's paw so it is interesting.
But there was a weird atmosphere in this story,so it is afraid of me.
I also have wish but I don't want to see monkey's paw. ( )
