*** REVIEW *** The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry
O. Henry's classic tale of love, sacrifice, and generosity.
I picked this short book up free on Kindle, as it was mentioned on Glee so I thought I'd check it out. I often check out books I've heard mentioned on TV shows etc lol.
Anyway, this was a nice little story. It's about a couple, who don't have a lot of money, but want to get each other something nice for Christmas. The couple both have one valuable thing each. Her's is her beautiful long hair, his is his grandfathers pocket watch. The story shows Della sell her long hair, in order to get some cash to buy her husband a gift she knows he will love.
The story turns into one of massive generoisty and love, and really makes you feel the love these two have for each other. A nice story for the run up to Christmas :D
