Read from September 13 to 14, 2011 — I own a copy

When read together, Montgomery's stories reveal a saccharine sameness in style and subject matter that I found to be far less interesting than her long form pieces, especially the Anne and Emily series. A few amusing stories, and if I pretend I'm a woman eagerly awaiting the next story in a magazine in 1900 I'm much better pleased, but on the whole I think you can skip this collection.

Roxanne For a less cutesy collection of short stories, try Sarah Orne Jewett's The Country of the Pointed Firs. Quiet country stories, simple country people; it made me tear up the way that Montgomery's best stories do.
