HASH(0x9cea8474) out of 5 stars Saki fans BEWARE! Sept. 11 2010

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Saki fans BEWARE! There is no index or any indication what stories are here let alone how to find them,. This is a sloppy and unprofessional effort. I am returning mine and am hoping for a more successful effort on Kindle's part. Where oh where is the Schwartz-Meterklume Method?

HASH(0x9cea86c0) out of 5 stars Saki, By Crackey! Dec 18 2013

H.H. Munro has to be one of the best short story writers of his time. His humor is hilarious and his dark tales can be truly harrowing and always with an ironic morality tale involved. If you want a taste of his wit, find "The Open Window" online, and for his form of 'real life' horror, try "The Interlopers" which is probably online too.
Two warring friends were at my house visiting one night years ago and I decided the best way to end their constant sniping at each other, I brought out my volume Saki and read them a Clovis story. They were in tears by the end of it, all ill will forgotten. They both have brought the incident up many times and both, coincidentally, got a copy of his works.
My suggestion is to read a couple of stories, leave him for awhile and go back on another day for more.

I couldn't find my old copy of the Saki stories so was really pleased to be able to purchase another from Amazon. This was one of the first "adult" books I found in my mother's library when I was about 10 and I loved it, still do.

Dry and sharp-witted, these short-short stories of the Edwardian Era are endlessly entertaining.

If you have any aspirations at improving your own writing, Saki will be a becon of wit and intelligence.
