The Ransom of Red Chief

Hello Everyone!

This is my first post on this blog!

While reading "The Ransom of Red Chief," by O. Henry, (of whom I am an enthusiastic fan) I could not help but notice the amount of humor implemented throughout the story. It is definitely written solely for the amusement and enjoyment of the reader.

It is a story about the adventures of two robbers and a boy who they have kidnapped for ransom. However, they have absolutely no idea who they are dealing with, and soon the tables are turned and it becomes a story of life, death, and unimaginable torture... Kind of. To tell more would indeed be a crime, seeing as I have already said too much.

Indeed, go find this story at once and do yourself the honor of reading it.

Rated 4/5



  1. Dang, i wrote it too small.
    Oh Well. How do you guys like it?

  2. It was nice. Thanks. Sounds interesting.

  3. You can edit your post and make the type smaller if you click, "edit post" on your dashboard. Just if you want to.

  4. Sounds "vanderful" (with german accent). Have any of you seen the movie "The Gift of Love" ? It is based on a short story by O. Henry.

  5. Yes, Tini likes the posts to be in normal size, with black script. I learned that after my first post. The "edit" button sure is ingenious.

    The only thing that I have read by O. Henry is "The Gift of the Magi," which I could definitely get into a heated debate about.

  6. "The Gift of The Magi" was made into the movie "The Gift of Love."
