    2. "It is the last one," said Johnsy. "I thought it would surely fall during the night"Dear, dear!" said Sue, leaning her worn face down to the pillow, "think of me, if you won't think of yourself. What would I do?"But Johnsy did not answer. The lonesomest thing in all the world is a soul when it is making ready to go on its mysterious, far journey. The fancy seemed to possess her more strongly as one by one the ties that bound her to friendship and to earth were loosed.A good story. Even though I [...]

    4. Bu kitabın doğru edisyon altında olduğunu düşünmemekle birlikte (ben eklemedim, varmış), bendekinin 54 basım olup 14 hikaye olduğunu belirteyim.İlk defa O. Henry okuyorum ve şu fenomen 'fakir iki sevgilinin birbirlerine hediye almak için, habersiz, biri saçını satıp saat zinciri, öteki saatini sararak fil dişi tarak aldığı o acıklı hikaye'nin aslı bu amcaymış meğersem.Sohbet havasında, kıssadan hisse havasında, didaktik ve sürprizli sonlarla, sade bir dille yazı [...]

    5. Four characters and a few pagesthat's all it took for O. Henry to write this heart warming, touching, bittersweet short story. The themes of love, death, sacrifice are found in this short gem. I guess the last leaf symbolizes the last hope of life that people hold on to. It's a beautifully and simply written story.

    7. In my opinion, the message lying behind last leaf’s short story, message that comes through most powerfully is that you should not judge people by their outward appearances or social persona. The story describes the artist that lives beneath, Behrman, as an old drunk who had never found success and hated weakness though he goes out in the middle of a storm to paint a leaf for Johnsy. This self-sacrifice is an interesting point why would he do such a thing earlier in the story he laughed at the [...]

    9. Wonderful story, demonstrates the power of hope and belief. The supremacy of faith in life, changes the course of existence altogether. The metaphor of masterpiece is magnificently described. Masterpiece is not something which can be described as a materialistic entity; rather it’s a self-explanatory deed which doesn’t really require any introduction or admiration. Masterpiece would be created automatically when we realize the real purpose of life. I would like to give 3.5 to ‘The Last Lea [...]

    11. The Last Leaf is one of those short stories where at the end you grin and say, "I see what you did there." Unfortunately, where most of O Henry's works are voice-y and entertaining, this one seems like it's ripped out of a Hemingway collection.

    12. I read this short story in middle school, and it's one of those that I would still think about every once in a while. So, 40 years later, I decided to re-read the tale that stuck with me so tenaciously. Like that last leaf on the tree.I enjoyed it once again this time around. I didn't remember all the details, and it was fun to rediscover the classic O. Henry irony. I may have to re-read some more, and maybe find some new ones.And here's a link to it so you can read it for yourself. It will only [...]

    13. Hihi, sáng nay tự nhiên thức dậy sớm hơn thường lệ, kiểu chả hiểu vì sao 6 giờ sáng đã tỉnh như sáo trong khi chưa từng có tiền lệ (sáng nào mình cũng nướng ít nhất là 7h30 từ thứ 2 - thứ 7 và 10h sáng CN), mới giả bộ mở cái ứng dụng Ybook lên.

    14. I loved this story. The ending was totally unexpected. I like the way O' Henry personifies pneumonia and describes his characters. The writing is so simple but it teaches you a lot about love and sacrifice. The way humour and tragedy is mixed is exceptional. This story will stay with me forever.

    16. This story is really beautiful and one of my favorite short story written by this author."The Last Leaf", this story symbolize a lot of different aspects of life;hope, friendship, sacrifice , pessimism, optimism and death.There were four characters, Johnsy, Sue, doctor, and old Behrman.Johnsy was a pessimist, while Sue was an optimist. Old Behrman here in this story was a friend , who sacrificed. All three of them were artists.Old Behrman had never painted a masterpiece, but he said that, one da [...]

    18. Absolutely beautiful story. Breathtakingly beautiful I am at my wits end to define the beauty of this story. Hope is a weapon. :O

    19. I read this story in junior high or earlier (more than 45 years ago), and while I couldn't remember the title or author, the imagery and concept stuck with me all these years. I read the story more than once in my youth, never paying attention to either title or author. I loved the idea of someone being that good a friend, and it was my first exposure to the "theory" of mind over matter, and hope overcoming even disease and death. At least, that's what I took from it.A friend recently sent me a [...]

    20. A very Unique story with a shocking ,unprecedented twist that changes the whole dimension of the story . Until the culmination of the story , it was hanging around an eerie fancy debating in mind whether the last leaf that apparently dictates johnsy's life (an abstarct mind-woven concept by an ill-stricken mind) would fall-off or not . The Shocking twist when unveiled adds lot of substance and showcases the ingeniousness of Henry.4 stars on 5 !-gautam

    21. I simply loved this story. Not only was it magical, but thought provoking too. The lesbian subtext was portrayed really well, and the humanity of the story was uplifting. "The Last Leaf" is a must read for everyone and is an excellent introduction to O. Henry. Can't wait to read "The Gift of the Magi" and his other stories!

    23. Now that I had the chance to go through the story again, I could still see signs of the old feelings I had toward the story. Like I have not aged since the last time I touched the passage with the profundity of my soul and heart. Impressions, personifications and words chosen to describe every detail in the story gets you attached so artistically that you can see yourself among the people in the story, among their conversations. You can be Sue , worried about Johnsy, the best thing you have in y [...]

    24. O'Henry has never failed to evoke my emotions.r!!!! Stories are short but heart quenchingh is not bound to pages, it can be achieved in few lines as well.The Gift of Magi was my first book of O'Henry's. I was in school when i read it and till today the story lingers in my memory.That is the power of his writing! I have since read many of his works and they have left their impression on me as well. The ironical twists narrated by each story is commendable.
