    "Three well-narrated classic tales"

    This title includes three stories by O.Henry: The Gift of the Magi, The Cop and the Anthem, and The Last Leaf. The Gift of the Magi is familiar, of course. The other two stories are less well known, but are still well written – one is amusing, the other heartwarming – and I very much enjoyed them. The narration by all three readers was excellent.

    "Definitely a Worthwhile Listen"


    Three touching and memorable stories comprise this volume of holiday classics, narrated superbly by some of Audible's best narrators. Though short, it was a very entertaining listen, as each story kept me interested and really transcended its historical time frame. Definitely a worthwhile listen.

    "Wonderful stories wonderfully read again!"

    These are the stories that I grew up hearing from my Father. What a treasure to hear them read again so clearly and with such story telling skill! What a lovely gift from Audible! Thank you so much!

    "Holiday classic short stories by O Henry"

    I enjoyed these stories but two of them jumped around a bit and were somewhat disconnected.

    "Not just for the holidays!!"

    This was a holiday freebie from Audible that I am just getting around to in March! There is still plenty of snow on the ground where I live so it wasn't hard to get in the spirit of the stories! I had never read any of these before and I enjoyed them all. The third one about Mr. Berman's masterpiece was my favorite by far! Thanks for the gift Audible!!!

    "Classic Tales"

    You can count on the masters to be able to get great stories with very few words. A familiar story of the Magi, although I've heard better narrations.

    Story
    "Great stories, odd choices in the narration"
    If you could sum up Holiday Classics by O. Henry in three words, what would they be?

    Classic Christmas twists.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Holiday Classics by O. Henry?

    As with all of O. Henry's short stories, the endings are very memorable.


    How could the performance have been better?

    O. Henry's stories take place in New York. The exaggerated Southern accent given to some of the characters in Gift of the Magi is out of place.
