I have always been a fan of H.H. Munro- better known by his pen name Saki- since I read his short stories 'After Twenty Years' and 'Miss Packletide's Tiger' in my school text books. He writes his stories with wit, style and elegance. Above all, the main attraction of his stories is the sharp twist at the end. His stories are an epitome for twists. My favorites in this book were 'Shock Tactics', 'A Bread-and-Butter Miss', 'Dusk','Louis', Hermann The Irascible: The Story of The Great Weep', 'The Byzantine Omelette' etc.Saki creates a wonderful world of characters with vivid personalities and strangeness. His short stories are unpredictable, surprising, sometimes sad but always delightful. His short stories reflect upon the comic side of human nature. His stories show the true human nature which makes them all the more humorous and interesting.
