Listener Opinions

    " O. Henry was an accomplished teller of tales. There's some duds in here (I think), but overall it's well worth it. How can you argue against 'Gift of the Magi'? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Satish Jha | 2/8/2014

    " It is hard to believe Saki and O Henry were contemporaries. Chekhov fine he was of different school. But the detailed often ruffian characters and clever plot of O Henry with the setting in a different land miraculously complement the fluid prose and more commonplace setting of Saki "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 2/1/2014

    " If you need something quick to read, short stories are the answer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Summer Larson | 1/27/2014

    " I have long been familiar with "The Gift of the Magi" and "The Last Leaf" so I was excited to find more O'Henry gems in this book. Some of the stories were clever, and some were boring, a few were wise, but overall I was disappointed with this book. Usually when I like an author I wish they had written more, but I guess there is such a thing as being too prolific. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gideon Arulmani | 1/26/2014

    " The twists at the end of the tale are always breath taking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 1/24/2014

    " I love O. Henry. I've a collection of his stories, but I'm not sure if it's actually this edition or not. At any rate, my favorite of his short stories is "The Pride of the Cities". It's probably available as an e-text SOMEwhere. Give it a perusal, the ending is too perfect for words. (There's a bit of a pun in that last comment) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 1/22/2014

    " I re-read some of these old favorites last year, and I have to agree with Helen that O. Henry is the master of the short story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 tanya | 1/19/2014

    " O'Henry stories remind me of my grandmother. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 12/25/2013

    " Very victorian and sentimental, but O. Henry is a master story teller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ferry Herlambang | 12/1/2013

    " Penulis cerpen terbaik. Di versiku... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karlyne Landrum | 12/1/2013

    " I think O. Henry might be the best short story writer ever. I know I almost cried when I finished this anthology... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 5/20/2013

    " Some truly entertaining moments. O'Henry surprises with sarcasm, wit, and a change around every corner. Everyone probably knows him for "The Gift of the Magi", but he is so much more. These stories are fairly short, so you can read one or several quickly and then come back to him when you have time. "

    " I liked he Furnished Room, The Lost Blend and Roads of Destiny "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach Barnes | 10/15/2012

    " Wonderful Bed-side reading with a message. Collection of some of his best work, the master of the short story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rita Platt | 10/10/2012

    " Didn't read every story... but, I personally am finished with this book. O Henry's story are uneven...some are FANTASTIC others...no so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tressa | 9/10/2011

    " O. Henry was doing twists before they were cool. Discovered him in junior high when we read "The Gift of the Magi." That story melted the heart of this teen girl. There are some great stories included in this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Prashansa | 5/27/2011

    " Picked it up to review the story titled, "The Leaf". Enjoyed this and many others. I dont usually read short stories but am glad I read this edition. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 7/25/2009

    " I don't know if you can really consider these classics, but I did, so there you have it.

    I didn't read all of them, but I read a few and they were fun. "The Ransom of Red Chief" was my favorite, which had a Twainian (ooh!) boyish country humor to it that was endearing. "

    " Had no idea about this author - took it from my mom's book shelf. The stories are short and really witty - who knew that he wrote the Gift of the Magi?!! And who knew it was only 5 pages long!!
    Really good read
