    I bought this book only because i had read the other classic authors i saw published in the same Penguin s 60 year birthday special series and i thought this was an Asian author.This is one of few outright humor books i have read 8 10 pages long stories that are subtle,very witty and laugh out loud funny The better stories which arethan half of them were wonderful,surprising reads You never knew what topic the writer would joke about next Nobody,nothing was safe Imperialism for one an I bought this book only because i had read the other classic authors i saw published in the same Penguin s 60 year birthday special series and i thought this was an Asian author.This is one of few outright humor books i have read 8 10 pages long stories that are subtle,very witty and laugh out loud funny The better stories which arethan half of them were wonderful,surprising reads You never knew what topic the writer would joke about next Nobody,nothing was safe Imperialism for one and satirized almost everything in Edwardian society and culture.Another very interesting author lost in World War I just like William Hope Hodgson

    This book made me laugh out loud, which is an absolutely wonderful thing I can t remember that last time I ve enjoyed comedy of the written word like this The stories are all smart, succinct and surprising Saki has a wonderful wit and a nice imagination I think I ll be keeping an eye out forcollections of his like this.


  3. Deborah Ideiosepius Deborah Ideiosepius says:

    What a joy to encounter Saki again One of his stories, The lumber room , was set for my matric English syllabus and I cherish itthan three decades later Many others have become favourites, including Tobermory , one of the longest tales in this Penguin selection The chaos caused by a talking cat is a priceless portrayal of the Edwardian high society in turmoil Several other stories feature the delightful schemer Clovis A short play is also included It is fascinating to read this col What a joy to encounter Saki again One of his stories, The lumber room , was set for my matric English syllabus and I cherish itthan three decades later Many others have become favourites, including Tobermory , one of the longest tales in this Penguin selection The chaos caused by a talking cat is a priceless portrayal of the Edwardian high society in turmoil Several other stories feature the delightful schemer Clovis A short play is also included It is fascinating to read this collection directly after the selection of Runyon stories they are so similar in their precise portrayal of a very specific culture of time and place and language, although the two worlds differ significantly Saki s ironically poised tales remind the reader of bite sized and matured Jane Austen A constant joy.Saki se ironiese uitbeelding van die Edwardiaanse samelewing in Engeland is voortdurend n vreugde Hy skep karakters wat die omstandighede uitbuit vir eie gewin, soos die haas gewetenlose Clovis Sy taalgebruik herinner aan wat Jane Austen sou produseer as sy n eeu later kortverhale sou skryf Die pret en plesier word ideaal verteenwoordig deur die chaos wat die pratende kat Tobermory skep Die ooreenkomste en verskille tussen Saki en die Amerikaner Damon Runyon is opvallend n verdere plesier vir storievrate


  6. Andrea Andrea says:

    A small collection of Saki s most acerbic, satirical and funny short stories I was disappointed at first, but some of the later stories were my thing I think I ll stick to Wodehouse in future though.The stories I enjoyed are The Baker s DozenTobermoryThe Secret Sin of Septimus BropeThe Schartz Metterklume Method

    Absolutely wonderful stuff, somewhat redolent of PG Wodehouse and I really want to readstories.
