An american Childhood

Remembrance: An American childhood by Annie Dillard
1. To me its not a well told story, it is bland and dull, it tries to be a well told story but the fact that the reader has to attempt to understand why all of this is going on making this story too complex.
2. There is too much presentation of places and people but little to no dialogue in the story. it is as if she is leaving too much to the readers imagination and i do not like it.
3. The significance of the memory is hardly there again there is too much to the readers imagination, it should have been a a clear cut significance of the memory and too many references as to what it may be.
