Format: Hardcover
This book should be considered a collection of short novellas. Like reading of cads and bounders,shady lawyers and tragic damsels in distress.. this book has them all. I think that the comic element in these stories is this books saving grace. Reminding one of silent movie hero's and heroines.. dramatic to say the least,fun fast read. If you love an old style novel if Dickens appeals to you ... you will love this book

A master of satire March 28 2013
By P R Trent (Woof) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Stephen Leacock is not as well-known as he ought to be. This collection of short stories satirizes just about every popular fiction genre: the Victorian "poor honest girl" with a missing fortune, Sherlock Holmes, romance fiction, and others. No humor writer is funny all the time, but Leacock comes close. Also, understand these stories were written in 1920 and earlier, and may appear dated to some readers, but I think this adds to their charm. This, and his other short story collections, is well worth a read.

Parodies Dated Material but Still Funny Dec 22 2014
By James J. Bloom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
With this volume, I now have all of Leacock's marvelous collection--thankfully available in reprint. If you like the humor of James Thurber, Robert Benchley and the ilk, then you love the wry wit of this Canadian economics prof. If I had first read his serious scholarly tomes on economic theory( I probably never will), then I may have never bothered with his humorous works. Who would've thought? One word of caution--the books parody novels, essays, and other literary works that were popular from around the 1890s to the 1920s. Hence, the stuff he pillories is dated. That said, they still are well worth reading as they are devilishly clever in their own right. One doesn't have to have read, say the Horatio Alger or Tom Swift books to appreciate the author's biting, though understated, wit. Had he lived into the 1970s he'd have written for the National Lampoon, or a decade or so longer, for the Onion. Not laugh out loud, but good for many quiet chuckles and a few guffaws perhaps.
