Review: Prize Stories 1999: The O. Henry Awards

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

Full disclosure, I didn't read this whole book. I couldn't get through the story by David Foster Wallace. The writing style and never ending sentences were too much for me. I did enjoy Merry Go Sorry and Sea Oak the most. Read full review

Review: Prize Stories 1999: The O. Henry Awards

User Review  - Linda Blake - Goodreads

This is a great collection of stories with something for everyone. I even enjoyed the one about soccer and sports are usually a major turn off for me. The winning story is "A Nurses Story" and recounts the importance of one life. Read full review
