    Please do note that this here one star rating is not in ANY manner in ANY way meant to be a comment on LM Montgomery's fiction her writing as for the most part the collected included stories deserve ratings from three to five stars but on the annoyingly and supremely user unfriendly way in which Dodo Press has presented and published them And yes when I first became aware of the Dodo Press collection of Montgomery short stories I was excited because from the title Lucy Maud Montgomery Short Stories 1904 it appeared as though the presented stories would be arranged chronologically However while the tales contained in Lucy Maud Montgomery Short Stories 1904 are indeed those penned by LM Montgomery in 1904 the stories themselves have been arranged in totally random and therefore not in chronological order month wise So if you were if you are looking forward to finally being able to read LM Montgomery's shorter fiction in actual order of the tales’ appearance this fact will make your desire considerably difficultBut what I and personally find even problematic with regard to this book as well as with all of other volumes in the Dodo Press collection of LM Montgomery Short Stories is the lack of any type of usable table of contents For while both the tales and their dates of appearance are listed at the beginning of the book at the beginning of Lucy Maud Montgomery Short Stories 1904 Dodo Press somehow and strangely has then not deemed it necessary to also supply the starting pages for the stories Thus if you desire to read a particular tale or if you are actually trying to read the stories chronologically in order of actual appearance you will need to guess on which page a given piece of fiction actually commences And no I really do not understand why Dodo Press could not have arranged these stories by year of appearance and it is simply unacceptable that the table of contents is so user unfriendly not supplying the starting pages of the stories sorry but for me that is an almost unforgivable and massively anger producing shortcoming And further the Dodo Press collection series of LM Montgomery short stories is also not going to be of much if ANY use for those readers wishing to use it for academic read research based purposes as there is neither an introduction nor is any of the source material listed Now an introduction would have been beneficial but not really absoultely reuired but Dodo Press should really have listed the diverse magazines journals etc in which these stories originally appeared Now I still enjoyed the reading time spent with and on Lucy Maud Montgomery Short Stories 1904 but the set up is certainly a major disappointment and I feel that I should at least warn other fans of LM Montgomery's fiction about the shortcomings of this particular series And while I do now realise that Dodo Press has probably just taken these stories from free online sites such As Project Gutenberg that still does NOT in any way excuse the user unfriendly print format I have encountered And yes I could just as easily and much cheaply have downloaded the featured tales from Project Gutenberg and then formatted them myself However since I obtained this series as traditional paper format printed books and they were also a much appreciated gift I can and do or at least I should be able to expect a reader and user friendly format and this simply does not ever materialise And potential readers should also be aware that ALL of the Dodo Press series books of LM Montgomery's short stories have the exact same issues are similarly constructed random chronological order a patently unusable table of contents and with no publication information period And frankly if you are indeed actively interested in LM Montgomery's short fiction you should probably either download them from online sources there are many possibilities from Project Gutenberg to various Kindle and other e book formats or much better yet seriously consider the late great Rea Wilmshurt's spectacular collection the seven individual books might not contain every short story that LM Montgomery ever penned but the individual tomes are extensive beautifully structured and ALWAYS include an introduction as well as the relevant source materials

    Although some of the stories had unrealistic Oliver Twist out of the blue twists which I don't prefer most of them were great studies of human characters everyday folly and grudges repentance and growth so it was a great pleasure reading them Will continue with the stories

    I stated in my review of L M Montgomery's short story collection published in the years 1902 1903 that the work suffered from two much commonality with all of her other stories The stories came across as cliched and boring To some extent this was unfair of me as the various story ideas were used in these stories for the first time so these are in fact the original stories while the Anne stories and others are the later “copies” in terms of plot That said without the full development that the adventures of Anne Shirley give us the stories really were not as much fun due to their shortness However I can say that the stories in this collection really are better Montgomery's considerable skill is obvious from any who have read her works The only real difference between the stories she wrote in the year 1904 and those she wrote in the previous eight years is in terms of originality of the tales She actually introduced some new concepts which was something she seemed unable to do beforehand The stories were not almost carbon copies of each other as many of the previous stories were That said there is still something to be criticized and that is that some of her characters could be than a tad shallow The characters were mostly uite attractive among the younger ones and those who were not attractive were not paired with the attractive ones This reminded me of how eternally attractive Anne and Gilbert are in the Anne books and how Anne and Gilbert made fun of an unkind woman behind her back due to her weight The worst part is that Montgomery was not portraying the characters here in this short story collection or Anne and Gilbert in their stories as wrong but as correct in their behavior With the exception of Anne's college chum Phil marrying a not so handsome minister this is an unfortunate stream of shallowness running through her works Even the character of Diana from Anne's girlhood while portrayed nicely despite being overweight is portrayed as infinitely out of Anne's leagueSuch issues are why I can not give unreserved approval to this short story collection though I certainly do Highly Recommend it

    Overall the 1904 stories were better than those in the 1902 1903 collection; while there was still some predictability a few of the concepts were original As is common failing among short stories some of the characters seem shallow both as a personal failing in the character as well as a failing of the length of the tale but none of them were really strictly unlikable I wouldn't say that any of the stories really stood out to me but as a whole I think I enjoyed them than the previous collectionWell I shall try to take a Montgomery break after this having read three short story collections in a row I do love LM Montgomery but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing so I need to take a break


  5. JoAnn JoAnn says:

    Nothing beats a little L M Montgomery when one wants or needs to be uplifted Her stories are simple and somewhat contrived but still leave me in a better mood


  6. Melissa Melissa says:

    Simple beautiful stories I could only read a few stories at a time due to their sugar content but they made me feel happy with the world

    This was an absolutely wonderful collection of feel good short stories that will leave your heart warmed after every tale

    5 stars 510 hearts This wasn’t my favourite of these collections but I enjoyed the stories I really liked the many blueprints for characters later to be found in the Anne books; and there weren’t any unpleasant or overly dramaticromantic stories in this one or any euphemisms that I can remember Most of the stories were sweet or funny I really like “Them Notorious Pigs” and “An Unpremeditated Ceremony” These stories I would hand to a younger sister without worryingA Favourite uote “I know she would consent to let me stay here because she would think it best for me but it wouldn't be really best for me; it couldn't be best for a girl to do what wasn't right”A Favourite Beautiful uote “Outside of the old Churchill place in the busy streets of the up to date little town Miss Madeline might have seemed out of harmony with her surroundings But here in this dim room faintly scented with whiffs from the rose garden outside she was like a note in some sweet perfect melody of old time”A Favourite Humorous uote “‘He won't propose to Judith as long as I'm round’ she panted ‘I know him—he's too shy But Eben won't mind—I'll tip him the wink’“Potter Vane was chopping wood before the door Mrs Theodora recognizing in him a further obstacle to Marshall's wooing caught him unceremoniously by the arm and hauled him axe and all over the doorstone and into the kitchen just as Bruce Marshall and Eben King drove into the yard with not a second to spare between them Both men sprang from their sleighs and ran to the door Mrs Theodora stood defiantly in the middle of the room still grasping the dazed and dismayed Potter”

    Montgomery’s work always have this unusual ability to take me out of whatever I am doing out of this work and transfer to a completely different one Her books and stories may be a tad simple sometimes too sugary but Lucy Maud Montgomery is in a big part responsible for my love for books so I have a big sentiment for her I have a right So fuck itLet me just say that reading these stories was an interesting experience because I was doing this in between of some fucked up gore stuff like Jack Katchum Peaceable Kingdom or Gillian Flynn Dark Places Trust me the contrast was one of a kindThis collection of stories – as probably any other of LMM – is a series of tales about unlikely friendships lucky coincidences prides a little too big every day activities gone bad and unhappy misunderstandings Everything’s all right at end though which is why the first thing that comes to my mind about Maud’s works is innocent I constantly remind myself she was not a happy person in real life Despite that – or maybe because of that – her works are usually – if not always – full of hope and promiseI think most people – or everybody – who as ever read any of Montgomery’s works will tell you she was really able to operate English language and created magnificent language Her style was recognizable smooth suburb I’ve always thought so and every bookstory I read in original seems to confirm it My love for her does not mean I don’t find anything to criticize I doSo first thing is that her stories are a little repetitive or just similar to each other or they are about the same kinds of characters The other criticism is about characters themselves They are usually not always though young and attractive Besides in these stories they – for my taste – they were also not fully fleshed But maybe that’s my problem with a form of short story there’s not enough time to fully develop the characters with their little likes and dislikes and their changeDespite whatever criticism I may ever say about any of Montgomery’s works I’d always recommend them because all in all they are positively delightfulThis review was published on my blog

    LM 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 fantasticIn 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 threads that pass through all of them There's the Christmassy stories— making Christmas cheerful for someone who can't afford it women haters or man haters who become reconciled to the opposite sex in time old maids getting married long lost loves that come back orphans who find a family member after all rich at times and all sorts of absolutely delicious things
