“The Winner” by Barbara Kimenye fails to attract and hold the interest of the reader and should not be used in the English 11 curriculum. Through its use of foreign terms, the story puts a barrier in front of the reader and closes the door to our understanding. Plus the plot jumps from one emotion to another, making it difficult for the reader to identify with and feel any sympathy for the characters.
