Please do note that this here two star rating is not in ANY manner, in ANY way meant to be a comment on L.M. Montgomery's fiction, her writing (for the most part, the collected, included stories deserve a four and often even a five star rating), but on the annoyingly and supremely user-unfriendly way in which Dodo Press has presented and published them. When I first became aware of the Dodo Press collection of Montgomery short stories I was excited, because from the title (Lucy Maud Montgomery S ...more

L.M. Montgomery is a genius. Probably many people have said that, but I mean it. I've been absorbing all her short stories over the past four days, and though I like the 'him-her' ones best, they're all fantastic.

In the later ones there's hints of Anne's House of Dreams and Anne of Avonlea, and even an entire chapter from Anne of Green Gables, but I don't mind. And wouldn't it be funny if that 'short story' is what prompted all of Anne?

The stories are from 1899 to 1928, and there are certain thr

These are great old fashioned stories. I enjoy listening to them!

"Hayden, I thought you said you were taking a Montgomery break?"

Yes, well, I then found out about the Lucy Maude Montgomery Week being hosted by Eva, and I decided to go ahead and finish all six short story collections-after all, I was already half through already, and it would make a good post for the blog event.

See, a very legitimate excuse.

One thing about this book that is different from the collections thus far is the names-- you can definitely tell that Montgomery is coming into Anne-writin

It is really fun to see character names (Anne, Gilbert, Walter Shirley), and even place names (Ingleside) pop up in these short stories. You really get the sense that these were LMM's practice stories for writing the Anne series, and each one of these short stories is every bit as lovely as her longer books. If you're looking for something simple to check out at the end of a long day, these are delightful to read in bed.

You can tell that Montgomery had a collection of names and plots that she revisited often, since many of the storylines and characters in these short stories will be familiar to anyone who has read her full-length novels. A quick and easy read of old fashioned stories.

These tend to get a little repetitive in that she uses the same basic storyline fairly frequently while changing some of the details. Still a pleasant read when I am in the mood for stories that end happily ever after.

I've been listening to these on Librivox. Some of the readers are great and some aren't. But I've been enjoying them. I really like seeing which snippets of stories ended up in which book and which name ended up with which character.

Not bad...became very predictable towards the end though.

Really sweet, well written and interesting. Although after awhile the tragedies began to be a bit predictable.
I took a break from reading these short story collections but like the others, this was an enjoyable read and amusing to see what she came back to/reused in future stories.

I still love reading an L.M. Montgomery book once in a while. She's really predictable, but I just love her writing. She was my favorite author in middle and high school.
