I thought “The Veldt” was a very good short story. I really enjoyed it. It was very descriptive and I had no trouble picturing it in my head. I was surprised by the ending. I did not think it would end the way it did. I didn’t notice the clues until I went back and read it again. I thought it would have ended with them actually turning off the house and getting rid of the nursery and have life go back to normal. I liked this story because it can somewhat relate to today. In today’s world, kids spend a lot of time with technology than with their parents and get really upset if they get taken away or shut off. Also it ties in with adults letting technology raise their kids instead of them doing it themselves. I also liked this story because it sometimes throws you for a loop and you don’t know what is going to happen next, which I enjoy when reading stories. Another reason I liked it is because it is kind of mysterious. You don’t really know how the scarf and wallet end up in the room until the end. Plus you never really know what actually happened to the parents so you are let to guess what had occurred at the end. The warning contained in the story for the audience is to make sure you are the one raising your child or they will not listen and rebel if you try to stop them from doing something. In the story, it shows how mad the kids get when they even talk about shutting the house down. The children are always in the nursery and don’t spend any time with their parents so when the parents lock it, they still break into it. Finally, the children actually get rid of their parents by trapping them in the nursery. The kids only thought of the parents as people trying to take away their fun, and they didn’t need them because the house can take care of them they decided to get rid of the parents.
