    Oh Money! Money! has a rather dreadful title, but is really a rather pleasant book. Stanley Fulton, an eccentric millionaire, is curious to see if his distant cousins, the middle-class Blaisdells, are worthy inheriting his money. He decides to test them by giving them each $100,000, to see how a sudden windfall would affect their lives, how it would help or harm them.They are Jim, who wants to spend more time with his children, Hattie, who lives beyond her means, Frank, who only cares for his gr [...]

    I thought I'd like another book by the writer of Pollyanna, but I didn't. I chose this one as her highest adult rated book, as I thought her weakest point in Pollyanna was how she portrayed children, which is, a bit two-dimensional.This book had a good beginning and charming main character BUT the rest of the characters ended up being two-dimensional(!) and the story so predictable that there was nothing exciting in it for me. At one point I was reminded of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Where [...]

    Porter is miles away from her Pollyanna world with this book. (And thank God for that. Pollyanna is the leading cause of diabetes.) Stanley Fulton is a multimillionaire with no one to leave his money to except for some distant cousins back East that he has never met. To see which one would handle the big money the best, Fulton first sets out to test the cousins with a just a taste of wealth in the form of $100,000 for each of them. (The book was published back in 1918 when a hundred thou really [...]

    A tired, disgruntled millionaire wonders what his heirs will do with his money after he is gone. The twist he has never met them. Curiosity and a good bit of distrust in humanity give him the idea to fake his death and give them each a large gift. Now he can get to know them and see how they handle sudden wealth. What is the best way to help the poor? What can sudden wealth do to people? It is such a sweet story. My father, my mother and myself all really liked it.

    This book by the author of "Pollyanna" is a very sweet story written in 1918. Highly reminiscent of L.M.M. Montgomery's "The Blue Castle," it is about a multi-millionaire giving away large sums of money to three different families, and moving into their town in disguise to observe what they do with it. It's charming.

    very interesting old novel. A multi- millionaire give one hundred thousand dollars to each of his three distant cousins, and disguises himself as a genealogist and lives among them, watching how they use the money. Read and see how it turns out! :)

    I love to think about money and this book gave me plenty of opportunity to do that. I also like to see how and what other people do with theirs and this gave me an opportunity to do that too. So I liked it.

    This book could have been a lot better. The premise sounds amazing but it ended up falling flat. The characters were boring, and so was the plot. It was also sappy. I enjoyed reading it but I won't read it again. And I totally guess the ending.

    This was a book club read, and I really liked it! It's a fairly short book, and it makes you wonder what your own reaction in the money inheriting scenario would have been.

    By the Author of "Pollyanna", this book "Oh, Money! Money!" is hilarious, sweet, and interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed it--I was laughing out loud at parts.

    One of the cutest, most wonderful books I've read in a while!! Way better than Pollyanna.

    Linore
    What a delightful book. Starts a tad slowly by today's standards, but well worth sticking with. Choose this when you're in the mood for a little fun.

    Lovely book! Great read!

    Cathleen
    OH, how I thoroughly enjoyed this book with its cast of characters. This book was written 100 years ago but is as relevant today as then. I'm going read every book this author has!

    Amy Griffith
    Interesting book about the way money makes people act. Does include a romantic story line but isn't the central theme.

    Kathleen
    This is such a good book. I loved the story and it ended just the way I wanted it to, too. :-)
