4.0 out of 5 stars More O Henry than you might realize April 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
This book is loaded, like the title says, with everything O Henry. Note that the table of contents lists each published work from O Henry, so for Kindle users that want to find a specific story, you will have to either click through publications or find the option to list he stories in chronological or alphabetical order. Not a big deal but may cause confusion if you do not recognize that the table of contents are his publications rather than his stories. Regardless, if you like O Henry, this is the compendium for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A step back in time September 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
Being an avid reader for 59 of my 63 years, I was overjoyed when I came across this title. I remember my original reading, having to lug around a very heavy hardbound library book. I had to renew it at least twice and being a library book I could not annotate or mark passages in any fashion.

I rather doubt I could read that particular volume given the small print and my current visual acuity. Having this edition allows me to make any necessary adjustments for both ease of reading and my personal reading pleasure.

I am able to bookmark my place, highlight a passage and access Wikipedia and a dictionary on the fly.

The single best feature is the portability of this "E"dition. I have an entire library in literally the palm of my hand.

Kudos to Amazon both for their Kindle for device applications and for having this edition in their offerings.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to O. Henry December 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
As a short story writing I have been aware of O. Henry since high school but just have gotten around to reading this "complete works volume. It was slow at first and didn't "pull me in" but I stayed with it and am really enjoying it. I didn't know his history before reading this and read up on his life and it helped to explain why he was writing a series of stories from a central American location. Good book and I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A literary treasure. January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
Although O. Henry was required reading in school I still find myself enjoying his own particular style. The stories are a quick read and still relative---you know, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

i am not the best of well rounded readers, but i have read enough to know that this guy runs with Melville when it comes to using the English language. I cannot read this guy without a dictionary near by. Ransom of Red Chief is by far the best short story. I cannot wait to read it to my grandsons when they are old enough to enjoy this masterpiece.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why no index? November 9, 2012
By Jimbo
Verified Purchase
As with the Selected Works of O Henry, it is too hard to flick through the works and find what one is looking for. Sadly, I have returned to the book that has ben in my personal library for years in order to enjoy this master craftsman's work. I say "sadly" because I like reading on my Kindle because of the font size which makes reading that much easier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very accurate rendering.
This is classic. O. Henry's prose is exceptionally good, and is typical of the era when it was written. Be prepared for many words that are antiquated. Read more
