Saki is one of those very rare writers who bring so much freedom of thought and liveliness of expression to the short story form. His level of originality unmatchable, his literary eccentrism unprecendented, cold and humorous, he seduces the reader from one story to the other. Perhaps his greatest gift is his insight in to human nature, their deepest foibles and the most hidden motives. THE COMPLETE SAKI is a book that must be owned by every fan of the grotesque and the dramatic. One would not dislike Saki's characters, he or she would be thrilled by them and envy them if they were real. The majority of them being devoid of sensitivity, their too familiar attitudes are probably the most captivating aspect. For every dramatic character in this book or the like thereof has lived once, is living or will live in the future.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Saki is absolutely my favorite short story writer. He's witty and iconoclastic with a very sharp edge. This book has a permanent place at my bedside table. Saki was killed in World War I. One wonders how many other entertaining stories he may have told had he lived into old age.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
