I first read a book of Saki's stories when I was in primary school, and I found "Gabriel Ernest" rather frightening, even though nothing much actually happened 'on-screen'. "The Music on the Hill" has that same sense of unease, but luckily I didn't read it until I was older or it might have put me off the countryside altogether!

I love his descriptions of people- my favourite is "Bertie von Tahn, who was so depraved at seventeen that he had long ago given up trying to be any worse" (from Tobermory).
