Five Beloved Stories by O. Henry

Gelesen von Phil Chenevert

(4,465 Sterne; 71 Bewertungen)

O. Henry wrote over 600 short stories. Naturally I have my personal top 20 stories that just seem to stand out because of their form, writing style and ability to convey real personalities in a very few words. From these 20 I've chosen five that seem outstanding examples of the short story art form. Stories like The Gift of the Magi; The Cop and the Anthem; Man about Town; A Cosmopolite in a Cafe and Mammon and the Archer. So this is a collection of just five O.Henry stories that many people, including me, have loved and remembered over the years. And this time, thanks to LibriVox, I have the enormous pleasure of not just reading them to myself, but also the joy of reading them aloud! What fun, eh? (Summary by Phil Chenevert) (1 hr 16 min)

excellent stories and reading highly recommended

(5 Sterne)

sometimes old fashioned old time stories can be pretty boring and plain when compared to t modern tales of science and fiction, but Phil reads these stories so well and puts that extra emotion and life into them that grabs your attention and keeps it there. I think you will really enjoy the stories and the way they are read.

Good stories and a dramatic reader

(5 Sterne)

O. Henry was a master of his niche of short story. The reading was clean and had a good tempo, but possibly a bit more dramatic than necessary... perhaps.

A very interesting set of stories. My favorite was The Cop and the Anthem.
