5.0 von 5 Sternen O. Henry, der einfallsreiche Schriftsteller 6. März 2014
Verifizierter Kauf
Ich finde die Erzählungen von O. Henry sehr lesenswert. Sein Amerikanisch ist nicht immer leicht zu verstehen: O. Henry verwendet viele Wörter, die im Kindle-Wörterbuch nicht zu finden sind. Das stört aber das Lesevergnügen nicht sonderlich.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lots of O'Henry for little money 3. Mai 2012
I own ten or so volumes of O'Henry, books printed in the 1920's and it is always a pleasure to read this timeless author who nevertheless opens a window into life in the big city as it was at the beginning of the 20th century. To have his complete works on my Kindle allows me to read from his various collections of short stories anywhere and anytime. O'Henry has been made portable for the 21st century.

Moreover: This edition by Delphi Classics is enriched with image material, and most important: The entire O'Henry digital file is made extremely navigable thanks to manifest hypertext headings. Searching for specific stories is made easy. It's almost like turning pages. For those who may not have access to a Kindle, an EPUB version of the text is available at the publishers own website.

4.0 von 5 Sternen More O Henry than you might realize 4. April 2012
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This book is loaded, like the title says, with everything O Henry. Note that the table of contents lists each published work from O Henry, so for Kindle users that want to find a specific story, you will have to either click through publications or find the option to list he stories in chronological or alphabetical order. Not a big deal but may cause confusion if you do not recognize that the table of contents are his publications rather than his stories. Regardless, if you like O Henry, this is the compendium for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A step back in time 6. September 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Being an avid reader for 59 of my 63 years, I was overjoyed when I came across this title. I remember my original reading, having to lug around a very heavy hardbound library book. I had to renew it at least twice and being a library book I could not annotate or mark passages in any fashion.

I rather doubt I could read that particular volume given the small print and my current visual acuity. Having this edition allows me to make any necessary adjustments for both ease of reading and my personal reading pleasure.

I am able to bookmark my place, highlight a passage and access Wikipedia and a dictionary on the fly.

The single best feature is the portability of this "E"dition. I have an entire library in literally the palm of my hand.

Kudos to Amazon both for their Kindle for device applications and for having this edition in their offerings.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good introduction to O. Henry 24. Dezember 2012
Von elmer lovrien - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
As a short story writing I have been aware of O. Henry since high school but just have gotten around to reading this "complete works volume. It was slow at first and didn't "pull me in" but I stayed with it and am really enjoying it. I didn't know his history before reading this and read up on his life and it helped to explain why he was writing a series of stories from a central American location. Good book and I recommend it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Why no index? 10. November 2012
Von Jimbo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
As with the Selected Works of O Henry, it is too hard to flick through the works and find what one is looking for. Sadly, I have returned to the book that has ben in my personal library for years in order to enjoy this master craftsman's work. I say "sadly" because I like reading on my Kindle because of the font size which makes reading that much easier.
