The Gift of the Magi and Other Short Stories by O.Henry

This book is my first introduction to O.Henry and his mischievous twists of fate to all his story endings. I was forewarned about these twists and tried to guess throughout all the stories - but I was always surprised. I found this quite delightful. This book is a compilation of his short stories written between 1906 - 1911 including:

- The Gift of the Magi
- The Cop and the Anthem
- Springtime a la Carte
- The Green Door
- After Twenty Years
- The Furnished Room
- The Pimienta Packages
- The Last Leaf
- The Voice of the City
- While the Auto Waits
- A Retrieved Reformation
- A Municipal Report
- A Newspaper Story
- The Ransom of Red Chief
- A Ghost of a Chance
- Makes the Whole World Kin

I truly enjoyed The Gift of the Magi (a story about love being more powerful than earthly possessions), The Cop and the Anthem (actually made me laugh out loud), Springtime a la Carte (I’m a sucker for love), The Pimienta Pancakes (so funny and ironic), The Last Leaf (because it was beautiful), and The Ransom of Red Chief (hilarious). The other stories weren’t to my taste but still interesting enough to read. I don’t want to give you more than that so I don’t ruin them for you, but it was a very quick and entertaining read.
