Diese Version hat viele Tippfehler. Namen der Hauptfiguren werden in manchen Stellen falsch buchstabiert. Die Fehler kommen alle 2-3 Seiten vor. Das lenkt vom Inhalt ab.

This version has a lot of typos. Sometimes even the names of the main characters are spelled incorrectly. The mistakes appear every two to three pages. It really distracts from the content of the book.

What marks this collection is a depth of feeling and sensitivity. Fitzgerald has a large degree of empathy for the creatures he writes about--whether they're the young "pirate," poor dull Bernice, or the ruined heroine of the "Cut-Glass Bowl." It's the book's saving grace, because sometimes Fitzgerald will lapse into purple prose, and the structure of the stories is often pat and cutsey in that O'Henry manner.But this is still a memorable book, one you look fondly back upon.

This collection of short stories takes a candid look at America in the early 20th century. There isn't a stinker in the lot, but I think "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" is my favorite. Fitzgerald has a way of making his readers connect with unlikeable characters that seems almost magical.

The book was great. It included some of Fitzgearld's best short works. It was hard to put down during a story. The emotions of the character are real for their time period.

Not a bad set of stories. "The Offshore Pirate" was the best---its one of the sweetest stories I have ever read.

Fitzgerald has established that he _can_ write, and well in his other works. This one, however, leaves more than a little to be desired. Cartoonish brassy debs and Horatio Alger-style golden boys with island paradises mark the basic theme. Futher, Fitzgerald can't seem to finish a paragraph without some reference to "darkies" or some more insulting epitaph. I mean - Twain's references were bearable, because we have the feeling that he's on the right side. But Fitzgerald's omniscient narrator (read: Fitzgerald) is pretty objectionable in his characterizations. And then he makes the cardinal sin of being decidedly unclever with the story. Even Maugham is better.
