it was amazing
bookshelves: currently-reading

I have only read maybe the first twenty stories, but some of them are hilarious. I read the first set of "Reginald" stories--some of the sarcasm was lost on me because I'm not really up on that time period in British history, but they were fun, nonetheless. I love "The Reticence of Lady Anne," "The Sex That Doesn't Shop," and "Blood-Feud in Toad-Water." I thought the last two were so funny that I read them aloud to my mom and sister-in-law. I'm looking forward to more from Saki!

I continue to add favorites to my list as I read more of these stories! Saki's dry wit and understatement are just amazing! Some are laugh-out-loud funny, while others sneak up on you. "The Chaplet" is a great story of a chef driven to distraction by the orchestra in the restaurant.
