    1. Please do note that this here two star rating is not in ANY manner, in ANY way meant to be a comment on L.M. Montgomery's fiction, her writing (for the most part, the collected, included stories deserve a four and often even a five star rating), but on the annoyingly and supremely user-unfriendly way in which Dodo Press has presented and published them. When I first became aware of the Dodo Press collection of Montgomery short stories I was excited, because from the title (Lucy Maud Montgomery S [...]

    2. This is a delightful collection of Montgomery's short works from the years of 1902 and 1903. I'm wanting to read all of her short stories, and making my way through them, year by year. This is the second such volume.Many of the works included would make great moral stories for young readers. Others feature romance as the driving element, and would be intended for adults (although they're so tame and sweet, teen girls could enjoy them). Some of the themes covered include reconciliation, finding l [...]

    3. I own and have enjoyed all of LM Montgomery's novels and expected to like her short stories just as much. Sadly, this was not to be. One of the major reasons I have decided not to continue with this volume is the quality of the Librivox readers. It seems that these volumes are a sort of practice ground for new and developing narrators. While some of them are quite good, others are still needing more practice. I'm also of the opinion now that LM Montgomery was a better novelist than short story w [...]

    4. I enjoy listening to these while I am working. L. M. Montgomery surely did have and use her gift from God! Some of these made me laugh out loud while I listened to them from loyalbooks The fact that they are old fashioned gives them charm and you can tell human nature has not changed, make a few slight changes and these stories could be made to sound as if they came from today's times!

    5. SweetSweet little short stories with moralistic and (mostly) happy endings -- good triumphant over evil. Nice soothing bed time reading.

    6. L. M. Montgomery shines again in this second compilation of her short stories, this time those that were published in 1902-1903. The same whimsical, funny, and wholesome sweetness that she would later become known for in her Anne Shirley series, was on display in these earlier published tales. I won't say much on the overall quality of the writing, as that was already covered in the review on the first volume of the short stories, those between 1896-1901. The quality is vintage Montgomery, excep [...]

    7. L.M. Montgomery is a genius. Probably many people have said that, but I mean it. I've been absorbing all her short stories over the past four days, and though I like the 'him-her' ones best, they're all fantastic.In the later ones there's hints of Anne's House of Dreams and Anne of Avonlea, and even an entire chapter from Anne of Green Gables, but I don't mind. And wouldn't it be funny if that 'short story' is what prompted all of Anne?The stories are from 1899 to 1928, and there are certain thr [...]

    8. Overall I didn't like these ones as much as the previous collection; none of them really made an impression on me. Again, there were about three I already read ( Including "A Sandshore Wooing" and "The Unhappiness of Miss Farquar" which were admittedly my two favorites in the Along the Shore collection, so I guess this collection did have a couple of good ones, I'd just already read them.)I think my favorite out of the stories I hadn't read before was "An Unconventional Confidence" although I wo [...]

    9. A wonderful selection of short stories over all kinds of topics, although the three Christmas stories are very alike. It is hard for me to pick a favorite but The Running Away of Chester is one of them with its very detailed description of Chester's plight. And The Strike at Putney is hilarious and quite unusual. As for romances I have always liked An Unconventional Confidence and it still holds its charm.

    10. These stories were sort of whimsical. Often they had sad or prideful elements, and the conflicts were always characters clashing with other characters. In the end, though, some happy conclusion was reached, often by one of the characters admitting a mistake on their part and apologizing, which was interesting. I enjoyed these but wasn't necessarily moved by them.

    11. Again, if you enjoy simple, well-written, happy-ending stories, then you are going to love this collection by L.M. Montgomery. These are what I would consider to be, perfect bedtime reading. I go to sleep, happy, content that all is right in the world. Or at least in her world.

    12. I've been listening to these on Librivox. Some of the readers are great and some are wellt. Some of the stories feel like they came straight from Louisa May Alcott. And others are so incredibly sappy that I laugh. But they make my kitchen chores go by quickly and I've been enjoying myself.

    13. Sometimes these stories look quite similar and Lucy M Montgomery style is visible in all of them. Regardless of these, the are quite enjoyable and make me travel to a time and place where almost always there is a happy ending for orphans or women!

    14. I am currently listening to this on Librivox and enjoying it very much. I confess to often being prompted to tears by these lovely corny stories.

    15. My favorites are: An Unconventional Confidence, The Bride Roses, The Old Chest at Wyther Grange, The Romance of Aunt Beatrice, The Martyrdom of Estelle, and The Running Away of Chester.

    16. More lovely short stories from L.M. Montgomery. They are so full of fun characters and it's very easy to get into each story.

    17. An excellent group of short stories by Montgomery, one of my favorite. What a nice way to finish off another wonderful year of reading.

    18. Like the previous collection, these are enjoyable but brief reads - it's still interesting to see when she's reused an idea or plot.
