Well, Saki hits a low here with another collection of posthumous stories. These were all written while Saki was fighting in World War I, so perhaps that’s why they’re so bad. Ormaybe it’s the fact that he wrote them and then was killed so soon after and was thus unable to work them into something with new drafts. Well, whatever the reason, this one is really bad. There are a couple of really witty remarks scattered here and there, but I can’t even recommend any of the stories as a whole. Pretty awful. 1 star.
tl;dr – stories from World War I, published posthumously, are among the very worst things Saki ever wrote; these should have stayed in the vault. 1 star.
