    I read this very short story today In fact I read it a few times in about half an hour, like I said it was a very short story The thing that brought it to my attention was that my son wrote an essay on it for a college course he is taking I read his essay last night, and the story this morning The first time I read it I was just creeped out, and annoyed with these parents Almost the entire story takes place in a cellar These supposedly normal parents keep their child chained in the cella I read this very short story today In fact I read it a few times in about half an hour, like I said it was a very short story The thing that brought it to my attention was that my son wrote an essay on it for a college course he is taking I read his essay last night, and the story this morning The first time I read it I was just creeped out, and annoyed with these parents Almost the entire story takes place in a cellar These supposedly normal parents keep their child chained in the cellar, hidden from everyone Now I need to know a few things, first is of course why is this child locked in the cellar And second,is the child a boy or a girl Answer to both beats me There are clues of course, the first line tells us that the child s mother calls the child a retch The father tells the child that mother is pretty, that all the people in a movie magazine the child sees are pretty, then goes on to say look at you and didn t have a nice face when he said it The father pulls away when the child touches his arm.So is the child deformed Is the child so ugly they can t stand to look at it Well that s a pretty awful reason to keep your child locked in a cellar In fact there are no possible reasons to keep a child locked in a cellar at all I can never think of a cellar without thinking of the basement of my parent s house It could have been in an episode of Fear Factor , dirt floor, stone walls that were always damp, very dim lighting that never touched parts of the basement, and a low, low ceiling I went in the basement as little as possible.There are lines in the story that seem a little odd to me, could they meanthan they say At one point the father becomes angry and hits the child,The anger came in his eyes He hit me I spilled some of the drip on the floor from one arm It was not nice It made ugly green on the floor. Now I thought on first reading this part the ugly green stuff that was spilled was just disgusting slime from the cellar, but could it have been something else Then later when the child is angry with being hit and is telling us what will happen the next time the child saysI will screech and laugh loud I will run on the walls Last I will hang head down by all my legs and laugh and drip green all over until they are sorry they didn t be nice to me Here s the green stuff again and the child will run on the walls andhang by all my legs. Run on walls and hang by all its legs How many legs could the child have Now I m wondering if it is a child at all I guess I ll never know unless one of you reads the story and fills me in

    I am confining myself to the story that gives this collection its title, and has found itself in best of anthologies again, and again, and again Why You have to read it to appreciate the nuances It s one of the creepiest pieces that I have read, and I m sure, once you have read it, you would never ever be able to forget it.I have no idea about the rest of the collection But I m quite sure that overall rating of something from Matheson would warrant no less than four stars.

    Born of Man and Woman is a horror science fiction short story written by Richard Matheson It was first published in the 1950 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction It was also his first professional sale, written when he was just 22 years old It also because the title story in Matheson s first short story collection in 1954 The story was also a finalist for the Retro Hugo Award for Best Short Story for 1954 in 2001.Born of Man and Woman is written in broken English from the per Born of Man and Woman is a horror science fiction short story written by Richard Matheson It was first published in the 1950 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction It was also his first professional sale, written when he was just 22 years old It also because the title story in Matheson s first short story collection in 1954 The story was also a finalist for the Retro Hugo Award for Best Short Story for 1954 in 2001.Born of Man and Woman is written in broken English from the perspective of a horrifically deformed child It s written in the form of a diary kept by the child and details their daily life The life of this child is far from a happy one Their parents beat them frequently and they re chained to the wall in the basement In one scene the child leaves the basement after hearing laughter upstairs and it s revealed that they re covered in a thick, sticky, slime In the end, the child gets tired of being beaten by his family members and becomes violent and the child s true, monstrous, features are revealed in a final diary entry.This story felt incredibly familiar when I was listening to it before this review I m quite sure it s been referenced in numerous forms of media and in TV shows but I can t remember where exactly the image in my mind is from.I also can t really tell if this story wants you to fear the child or the family, because I feelsympathy for the monster than the people that frequently beat them and keep them locked in a basement I also feel the father deserved to get his butt kicked by the monster So, my conclusion humans are the real monsters in this story.Overall, this story was certainly unique and the person they got to read the audiobook did an amazing job I give the story a 4 out of 5 stars

    Wow, what a wonderfully unnerving short story It s told from the point of view of an abused child, who is kept chained in the basement by its parents It is written with odd grammar, bad spelling, and strange phrasings to reflect a complete unfamiliarity with normal human speech, writing, or the world outside the basement The child is curious about the laughter it hears from Upstairs and the glimpses it gets through a window of children playing outside and is punished by beating when it goes Wow, what a wonderfully unnerving short story It s told from the point of view of an abused child, who is kept chained in the basement by its parents It is written with odd grammar, bad spelling, and strange phrasings to reflect a complete unfamiliarity with normal human speech, writing, or the world outside the basement The child is curious about the laughter it hears from Upstairs and the glimpses it gets through a window of children playing outside and is punished by beating when it goes to look A few violent things happen towards the end, including a promise of even greater violence to come.This is all pretty terrible, but what makes the story truly creepy are the vague hints that this child is literally not human and that may be some sort of giant insect, alien, or a monster It describes itself as bleeding green, for instance And it talks about crawling on the walls with all its legs That said, it s still not fully clear whether this is true Given the narrator s ignorance of so many basic things it doesn t recognize a cat for instance , does it actually know the difference between green and red Or walls from the floor or legs from arms The reader is left to wonder At the same time, the possibility of the child being truly, literally a monster leaves the reader to wonder whether the parents actions though certainly cruel may somehow be at least understandable, which is possibly even creepier Overall, it vaguely evokes hints of Frankenstein and John Gardner s Grendel which retells Beowulf from the monster s point of view And all this in just 3 4 pages Brilliant, IMHO

    This is a very short story And the point of it misses me As a weirdly insecure kid, I guess I sometimes did fantasise being the hapless, victimised kid whose parents treat him like prisoners Having readinto it, apparently it s a common interpretation by children So, maybe narrating this from the perspective of the child who escalated the fantasy by a million would have been interesting But the story is really too short to explore this It also is too literal As in the kid really seem This is a very short story And the point of it misses me As a weirdly insecure kid, I guess I sometimes did fantasise being the hapless, victimised kid whose parents treat him like prisoners Having readinto it, apparently it s a common interpretation by children So, maybe narrating this from the perspective of the child who escalated the fantasy by a million would have been interesting But the story is really too short to explore this It also is too literal As in the kid really seems to be a mutant monster So what was the point, that parents ought to love the children regardless The story doesn t offer perspectives, so as a reader I do not intend to commit any Bye

    Second 15min of this Mindwebs audiobook , the story was from taken from the book Third from the Sun The stilted narrative style perfectly compliments this account from the abused entities perspective A Horrible horror story of mans inhumanity that is nevertheless compelling listening as you wait to discover what you would see if it looked in the mirror Awful but excellent.

    Maybe I just had no clue what was happening, but I found that I didn t like this one as much as the other short stories I ve seen It didn t deliver the impact it was aiming to deliver, also being too short to truly do it for me Idk.
