Heart of the West

I have always heard about O. Henry, but had never read any of his works. This was an enjoyable romp through the Old West, with typical O. Henry type endings. Most of the books involve romance in some form or other, often with unexpected conclusions.

The narrator was perfect for these stories. Just enough good ole boy accent, but not so much as to be distracting. The only bad thing I can say about this audiobook is that O. Henry loved to use unusual words in his stories & it is hard to stop & look them when listening to a book.

I received the audiobook version of this book from the narrator or publisher & chose to review it.

Like a pair of comfortable old slippers

O. Henry was one of my first Favorite short story artist. His ability to touch and hold the essential humanity in a given situation with clarity and with startling ease is remarkable. Rich Miller has brought these old but surprisingly relevant stories to life . Having previously only read O. Henry, It is nice to hear this timeless narration .It was worth every minute. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
