             "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" was a wonderful short story. This story is told in a third person point of view. The grandmother is telling the story. She uses she and he in the story often. The setting of the story seems to be in the summer during vacation time. The story took place in a car while going a vacation to Florida. The characters in this story are considered dynamic, flat, and round. The dynamic characters are the grandma, John Wesley, The Misfit, June Star, and Bobby Lee. I chose them as dynamic characters because they tend to change because of the plot of the story. The grandma is considered a dynamic character because she tried her best to change The Misfit.
