    The quality of the stories was all over the board. A few were very memorable, especially the spooky ones by Kipling and Doyle, as well as the funny ones by Compton and Lewis. I'd read Mirage by Maugham before, and it's still very good and relevant.The Adventure of the Snowing Globe is a fun fantasy and perfect for Christmas reading.Veronica got bored with it, so we moved on from reading it for bedtime stories.As one would expect from Folio Society, the presentation is excellent. It's a beautiful book.

    A mixed bag (obviously as they are short stories), I enjoyed some more than others, but there were a few too many that were a chore to get through despite being so short.
