I loved this book! I only wish each short story was a novel. O. Henry is able to introduce the characters until you feel they are your friends and a short 10 to 15 pages later, the story is over and you have to start all over meeting the next characters only for that relationship to end abruptly as well. I loved the sentiments of the stories. I loved the language and writing style. I loved the feeling.

I have heard the story The Gift of the Magi many times before but never told as beautiful as O. Henry tells it. It is almost a shame to me that others have been afforded the opportunity to alter it.
