The short story "A Good Man is Hard to Find" is a story about a family who is going on vacation and they get into a horrible accident where they didn’t only lose their car and got hurt, but that accident also decided their faith. Misfit is a character that escaped from prison and the police was looking for him. After the accident Misfit went to see what happen in the accident when Bailey's grandmother had the bad luck of identifying the Misfit. When Misfit knew that the mother knew who he was he couldn’t take the risk of getting caught by police and he send Bobby Lee to get rid of the rest of the family including Bailey, his son john Wesley, June star, their baby brother, and Baileys wife. After a discussion between the misfit and the grandmother about his religion beliefs Misfit kills the grandmother even though we as readers find out he didn’t wanted to do it but he didn’t have an option.

The author's comments:
people can learn from the story that if you had an option of avoiding something bad to take it for granted and to be careful who you talk to because you never know what kind of people are there in the world. For exmple, the fact that the grandmother said the she knew that the man who wanted to help them was the misfit changed everything bacuse maybe the Misfit wanted to hurt any of them but the fact that she said who he was changed everything and the Misfit had to kill them because he couldnt let the police caught him. This literature can be enjoyed by any kind of person because is an interesting story to read and the intense in the story makes a reader keep reading to see what end up happenig with the family. Maybe peole who arent really into suspense might not like this story because they dont like waiting to see what happens or maybe someome doesn't like stories where they kill people for no reason.
