This is a selection of five short stories with the common theme of unhappy marriage. As they are all five written during the Victorian era, they give the reader a good picture of what was and was not considered tolerable by social mores in a marriage of that day. For that historical purpose alone, there is much value to reading this collection. Some of the stories are particularly well written as well, though, given the collection even more merit.

I picked this up because I liked the sound of the title. The short stories are well chosen, and on a whole I liked the collection. Extra points for the Sherlock Holmes story, I hadn't read that particular narrative before.

The writing was better than it's counterpart, but reading about unhappy marriages, especially in a time period where there was really no legal escape from them, was a real downer for story after story.

A nice little collection of short stories with the focues on marriages gone bad. The best two are the Kipling and the Gissing short stories, which strangely, don't blame the woman.
