This was a comedy and it was pretty funny. The missionary was a horrible person contrasted with just about everyone else in the story who was fun.

This was such a neat find. I read an excerpt that was part of a collection of humorist works and I had to know what happened, so I ordered the whole book so I could keep reading.

Reward Yourself

Excellent diction, fabulous surprising plot. Or get it free on kindle. This short story was delightful in a very old fashioned way. It was available as a scanned copy of an old manuscript and met all expectations. I first read this book many years ago in high school and have read it periodically ever since, giving myself time to forget it well enough that it all seems fresh again. What a delight to find it free on Kindle! This is one of my favorite books. Aleshine are two of the most memorable characters I've ever encountered, and the proceedings in this book remain vastly entertaining to me.

Stockton was a superb storyteller and though this book was written in the very late nineteenth century, the tone is just modern enough to make it easy to read. See all 9 reviews.
