    " I'm sure these had a time and place but in the present(jaded, cynical) world the stories had a saccharine overload. I eventually needed to bail and toss this in the trash. (I was never a big fan of the O. Henry candy bar, either.) "

    " LOVED it. I know alot of people wouldn't sit through a book of short stories, but I've always loved them, and O. Henry has a gift like nobody else. His stories CAN be slightly predictable, but many of them were original, and ingenious, and just thoroughly enjoyable. Loved it! "

    " I gave this an extra star because it was given to me at the O Henry Hotel I stayed out and I thought that was pretty cool. The hotel also had the BEST bed I have ever slept in and the absolute BEST pillows ever. "

    " O. Henry short stories are the scale that all other short stories in English are measured against. Writers crave winning the O. Henry Award for their writing. Winners have included Stephen King, John Updike, and Woody Allen (had to throw that one in). This is a good little collection of some of the stories from the ex-con who wrote under the pseudonym O. Henry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fish | 1/13/2014

    " These stories are amazing. The first, The Gift of the Magi, is very famous. It could made a stone cold serial killer smile. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rita Platt | 1/1/2014

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kandice | 11/26/2013

    " I read this stories over and over. Even though you know the ending, it's still cool the way they twist! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina Stefanova | 11/25/2013

    " The first book that I read in English. It was really nice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 8/19/2013

    " My favorite airplane companion...not the book you bring to LOOK like you're reading something intelligent...but nice, compact stories with twists to leave you feeling satisfied, even if you're interrupted by the captain's comments a little too often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tressa | 8/18/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karlyne Landrum | 5/18/2013

    " 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 Jen | 3/16/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Prashansa | 1/26/2013

    " The stories I liked: The Last Leaf and The Cop and the Anthem. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arjun | 12/21/2012

    " I often attribute my sense of humor to this guy, Roald Dahl and a strong desire to hide my vulnerabilities from others... "

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

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 8/11/2012

    " 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. "

About the Author
Author O. Henry

O. Henry (1862–1910), born William Sydney Porter in Greensboro, North Carolina, was a short-story writer whose tales romanticized the commonplace, in particular, the lives of ordinary people in New York City. His stories often had surprise endings, a device that became identified with his name. He began writing sketches around 1887, and his stories of adventure in the Southwest United States and in Central America were immediately popular with magazine readers.
