    One thought on “Pigeon Feathers”

    1. This review is for the short story, Pigeon Feathers, by John Updike. I found the boy's religious crisis compelling. However, the ending is ambiguous to me; it made the story as a whole less enjoyable for me -- I suppose because it makes me disappointed with the main character.Update: Upgrading to 4 stars after dwelling on the story a bit more and finding an interpretation of the ending that suits me.
