Throughout “The Monkeys Paw” by W.W Jacobs he uses suspense in numerous ways to draw the reader to the story. One of his many suspenseful tactics was the simple fact that the monkeys paw contained three wishes. I do not think I could live in this period the weather was cold and desert roads seems kind of spooky. It reminds me of a dark and gloomy place of sadness.

In my own words this story could be told around a campfire a story you could teach to others generations. The monkey paw may be known for modern readers then some of the stories it has inspired. Other stories that you could relate to that are more known would be Steven kings Pet cemetery. The story of a cemetery that has the power to bring died animals back to life.

Mr. White basically falls from a happy life into one of fear and loneliness all caused from A monkeys paw a paw that could grant wishes only to leave Mr. White and his Wife without their only son. The death of their son was the worst possible thing that could happen. Mr. and Mrs. White's intense grief over Herbert highlights how much they adored their son, as does Mrs. White's desire to have her son back, no matter the cost. This book has been around for decades "A tale from which pieces have been raked out is like a fire that has been poked. One does not know the operation has been performed, but everyone feels the effect." --Rudyard Kipling
This short horror store revolves around The Whites family, namely Mr. White, Mrs. White, and their son Herbert White. They are a happy family with a safe and cozy home that is very separate from the outside world. “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs is an image of motive and selfishness - everything that its owner could possibly wish for and the unlimited ability to make it happen.
