Reseña del editor
This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1903. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... MR. SUDGEBERRY AND THE CHERRY RIBBONS THE three occupants of the room turned toward the door and stared at us in a kind of paralytic amazement for several moments, during which my renewed sneezing was the only sound to be heard. It was Miss Sylvia who first recovered. She rose to her feet with a slight scream; Mr. Gray dropped knife and fork clattering upon his plate; and William sprang up with a sharp exclamation. It was a sweet sop to my rage to see the change come over Mr. Fentriss when his gaze rose to the disclosure of his Nemesis! He gave a wretched look at us, which took in the broken posture of the dilapidated innkeeper, my tattered nightcap, smeary cheeks, wrathful brow, and the cutlass; and in the stern picture he read his fate. He staggered back against the wall with his hand across his eyes, as if a sudden vertigo had seized him. Then he made one gesture of intense appeal, seemingly begging to be spared the humiliation so properly in store for him; but as he saw the uselessness of it, his arms dropped to his sides, and he stood, with head fallen and shoulders bowed, like one already condemned and lost. I advanced into the room with a solemn tread. "What is this?" gasped Mr. Gray. "Another robbery?" "Behold a perfidious monster!" I repeated, still pointing at William Fentriss across the table. At the sound of my voice, Miss Gray shrieked aloud. "Heaven defend us!" exclaimed her father. "'Tis that Sudgeberry!" Miss Gray fell back in her chair and covered her face with her hands. "Ay, old man," I answered, in a fateful tone, in spite of the before-mentioned infirmity of pronunciation which forced me to address him, against my will, as "old bad," instead of "old man," although I had then no desire to speak harshly to him, "it is I!" "It is I" he cried. "...

"Cherry" is the story of a love triangle, as told from the perspective of one of the two suitors. The gentleman in question is Mr. Sudgeberry, a young man who is attending to his studies. The object of his affection is Miss Sylvia Gray, and the competitor for her heart is William Fentriss who is also a young man attending the same school. The story initially deals with the time between terms when both Mr. Sudgeberry and William Fentriss have plenty of time to devote to courtship. The two men are quite unalike, the narrator being very serious and verbose, and Mr. Fentriss delighting in music, poetry, and the company of friends.
The story is readable in its way, but at the same time frustrates the reader with taking so long to reach a conclusion. There is a decent idea behind the story, but it is not executed well. I would recommend that this one be skipped and instead one might read "The Two Vanrevels" for a love triangle story from Tarkington which works far better than this one.
One of Tarkington's earlier works, I was a bit worried about its clarity. However, it was easy to read and understand. However, one's vocabulary must be able to match Sudgeberry's abilities. There were a ton of "tough" words in this book. I loved the simplicity of the story though and it worked well for me. Thoroughly enjoyable.
