50 Greatest Short Stories by Terry O’Brien

I wouldn’t say all stories are good and engaging but this indeed is a great collection.

I loved rereading (had read this long back) the story of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

This book is a mix of genres and below are the stories I liked reading the most.

The humorous ones were The Lottery Ticket by Anton Chekov and My Own True Ghost Story by Rudyard Kipling. The ones that scared me a lot were The Monkey’s Paw by W. W. Jacobs and The Rocking-Horse Winner by D.H. Lawrence. The Cactus and The Gift of the Magi, both by O.Henry just made me go awe. The Model Millionaire by Oscar Wilde and The Last Leaf by O. Henry touched my heart.

It’s a good read, you may skip the story that doesn’t entertain you and read the ones you like. This one has to go to the bookshelf of every avid reader.  

Available on Amazon Kindle Edition, Paperback and MP3 CD.
