Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry Nick | 2/20/2014

    " "Sredni Vashtar," "The Story-Teller," "The Open Window," "The Music on the Hill." and "the lumber room", I will read the rest as soon as I find them "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Levon | 2/5/2014

    " Rather lightweight and very short humorous stories. More a book you'd dip in and out of. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 2/4/2014

    " I'm savoring every last story in this deliciously witty book. It may take me a decade to get through it, since each little story is so pithy and wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey | 2/4/2014

    " You like horror? Humor? Dark humor? Suprise? An author too many have missed. Am must read. Loved this guy when I was a kid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isaac | 1/20/2014

    " At the time my mother gave this as a gift, she may or may not have seen how like this volume's central character I had already become (a snippy queer), but I thank her just the same. Saki's stories chronicle Clovis as he dishes out pre-Roald Dahl, sitcomesque lesson-teaching to the pompous elite. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bettie | 1/16/2014

    " read back in the '80's "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Mayer | 1/4/2014

    " I love the snarky character Reginald; who knew Saki could be so entertaining! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 12/27/2013

    " Maybe the humour was a little too wry for me? Not as funny/satirical as I was expecting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 12/25/2013

    " One of my favorite writers! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 12/20/2013

    " First read some of these is 1994. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 12/13/2013

    " The Story-Teller is very good--light, humourous and shows empathy for children "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nena | 11/29/2013

    " So delightfully politically incorrect... enjoyed every word of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberley | 11/21/2013

    " Given to me by a dear friend "to put by the bedside for always". An excellent book to dip in and out of when you are in between book. Scathing wit, amusing observations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 11/21/2013

    " Great writing from a truly tragic character. If you like this, check out the stuff for grownups by Roald Dahl as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Sexton | 9/16/2013

    " Some witty one liners, a bit Oscar Wildey, quite sinister on occasion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna | 9/13/2013

    " One of my all time favorites. I love the sort of twisted, if not somewhat sadistic, humor that overshadows all of his stories. My personal favorite is Sredni Vashtar. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gordon | 8/8/2013

    " funny or inspired in parts, dated in others "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Valente | 7/6/2013

    " Not as well known as Oscar Wilde or as well loved as Wodehouse, Saki's short stories deserve their place in the pantheon of the great comic writers. Hilarious, supremely clever, and full of acerbic wit and loveable scoundrels, I don't think i've ever been more entertained by a book of short stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Afhb | 2/8/2013

    " The best stories in this collection are master-works: perfectly paced with strong characterisation and decidedly anti-establishment themes. Brilliant book which you can pick up on a whim and jump immediately into a bygone age. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 10/16/2012

    " These tales are exquisite! He has a dry wit, like Oscar Wilde. There are not many other authors that come mind who are like this. The modern day equivilants MAY be Road Dahl (his adult tales please) and John Collier. (IF unfamilier with them, look up both of these please! they are both wonderful!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 8/8/2012

    " Some of the best satire you're likely to find. A lot like Twain, but dealing with the foibles of his British countrymen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime | 5/28/2012

    " Darkly funny and with a real bite, H.H. Munro (Saki) delivered many of the most satisfying short stories ever written. Each one is a craftily polished gem cut to perfection...that, diamond-like, *cuts* to perfection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Msk | 4/15/2012

    " Funny and dark, what's not to like. This book fired my imagination like no other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carra | 3/21/2012

    " I read these at bedtime to my husband (gross, right?) and we both really enjoyed them. Saki writes for children as a child, in my opinion, and captures something that also appeals to adults (or rather, your inner-child). He's a scamp. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny Thayer | 12/5/2011

    " currently listening to his short stories on libra vox and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! So imaginative and different and strange and loving! "
