    Although I was a bit disappointed with a few of these short stories, there are quite a few gems in here that save this short story collection Unlike two of his other books that I read, these short stories really do function as short stories instead of chapter y short stories Much to my surprise, I very much enjoyed the sporting section and it may even be my favorite Although, memories of Christmas and goodwill stuff are pretty funny, too And the stand alone The Transit of Venus is quite good Although I was a bit disappointed with a few of these short stories, there are quite a few gems in here that save this short story collection Unlike two of his other books that I read, these short stories really do function as short stories instead of chapter y short stories Much to my surprise, I very much enjoyed the sporting section and it may even be my favorite Although, memories of Christmas and goodwill stuff are pretty funny, too And the stand alone The Transit of Venus is quite good stuff as well It was sort of hit and miss at the start, but after the first section I thoroughly enjoyed all the short stories A great short story collection and one of my favorites of all time 5 5

    I was a bit disappointed by this book, maybe because I was expecting something different A good chunk of it wasn t what I d call humourous writing, although moments of fun certainly shine through and some of the pieces are gems I do give Leacock top marks for his down to earth humanity and now that I know what s coming I mthan willing to try another book.

    The usual collection of humorous sketches mixed with a fewserious, contemplative essays and memoirs To be expected, I suppose in the midst of the Second World War and toward the end of his life 7 1 2 stars.

    A series of sketches on a variety of subjects Some I really enjoyed and others were just so so Very interesting author who wrote many books fiction and non fiction.

    Makes me nostalgic for life while I m still here living it I want to start reading it again right away to savour the enjoyment and the life lessons but I won t.

    Stephen Leacock might have been the best known English speaking humorist in the world between the years 1915 and 1925, but this book a collection of sketches feels outdated and frankly devoid of humour A deception, but it nevertheless shows how things seemed to be at the time to an old professor.
