    "Entertaining, If Not Memorable"

    Although I didn't feel that most stories in this volume were as memorable as such well-known favorites as "The Last Leaf," "The Gift of the Magi" or "The Ransom of Red Chief," they were still very enjoyable and entertaining to listen to. Most stories included O. Henry's trademark "surprise ending" but in many cases I felt the ending was too easy to see coming or too contrived to appear genuine.

    I enjoyed the variety of characters--from New Yorkers to cowboys to tramps--and Gene Engene did a wonderful job of bringing them to life with his distinct regional accents. He also did an impressive job of smoothly popping out the humorously long and unusual words that O. Henry often uses to season his tales.
