    1. And not only do the ghosts themselves always walk on Christmas Eve, but live people always sit and talk about them on Christmas Eve Whenever five or six English speaking people meet round a fire on Christmas Eve, they start telling each other ghost stories Nothing satisfies us on Christmas Eve but to hear each other tell authentic anecdotes about spectres It is a genial, festive season, and we love to muse upon graves, and dead bodies, and murders, and blood.In the introduction of Told After Sup [...]


    2. Jerome K Jermome is probably best known for Three Men in A Boat.In the first part of this book of short stories he tackles the popular Victorian genre of the ghost story And completely extracts the urine from it.A charming read in small doses The best word to describe the book is whimsical Only problem for me is that it doesn t take much whimsey for me to come over all unnecessary.


    3. Ho un nipotino, 7 anni, che adora le storie di fantasmi Ogni volta che resta di sera a casa mia, vuole che accenda il fuoco, poi spenge tutte le luci, dispone plaid e cuscini per terra tra tavolini e poltrone a formare una nicchia Crea l atmosfera insomma E a questo punto vuole che mi metta a sedere per terra accanto a lui e che gli racconti una storia di fantasmi, che deve far paura e ridere nello stesso tempo, naturalmente Sono andata avanti fino ad ora un po inventando e un po rielaborando ve [...]


    4. A quick read and a lot of fun Jerome s trademark wit in the service of parodying typical English Christmas ghost stories And a great choice to read aloud for those who have that holiday tradition.


    5. Jerome Klapka Jerome 1859 1927 , author of the comic masterpiece Three Men in a Boat, needs no introduction But many who admire his humorous classic are unaware that he wrote a number of ghost stories.Told After Supper was Jerome s only volume comprised solely of ghost stories It was published in 1891 by The Leadenhall Press and contains linked tales, interspersed with than ninety wonderful illustrations by Kenneth M Skeaping, one of which you can see below, all printed on thick pale blue paper [...]


    6. I found the cover for the Alma Classics edition of After Supper Ghost Stories enticing With its off white swirls and flourishes upon a simple black background, it screamed Intense, melodramatic, Gothic Victorian literature , something akin to Bram Stoker s Dracula or Emily Bronte s Wuthering Heights Well, After Supper Ghost Stories which is an anthology that takes its title from the longest story among its pages is melodramatic and it s certainly Victorian, having first been published in 1891, b [...]


    7. It was Christmas Eve Christmas Eve at my Uncle John s Christmas Eve There is too much Christmas Eve about this book I can see that myself It is beginning to get monotonous even to me But I don t see how to avoid it now at No 47 Laburnham Grove, Tooting An uproarious burlesque of festive ghost story cliches which even finds room for the Box of Delights card trick The curate s offering in particular had me laughing to the point of physical discomfort A shame that Jerome is now only really known fo [...]


    8. This is a relatively short parody of Ghost Story books, especially those in the style of Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins Written in Jerome s usual easy to read style, it is worth a chuckle or too and is available free for download or as part of the Delphi Classics Download Unfortunately, the illustrations are not available in the downloaded versions I found.


    9. It is Christmas Eve and the curate, Samuel Coombes, member of the County Council and churchwarden, old Dr Scrubbles, Teddy Piffles and the narrator are sitting around the table at his Uncle John s house Having done justice to the splendid meal Aunt Maria had produced, washed down with Uncle John s own particular old ale , they have now started on the whisky punch and are entertaining each other with rambling anecdotes and card tricks shortly after supper Aunt Maria had very sensibly decided to g [...]


    10. Bah Magari sono io che non capisco l umorismo inglese Allora, c scritto dappertutto che questo libretto altro non che una presa in giro delle storie di fantasmi tipiche della letteratura inglese, una specie di parodia ma Non sono le storie di fantasmi che mi aspettavo Non hanno senso Non fanno paura E i fantasmi si vedono a malapena Tanto che a volte mi venuto da pensare che non fossero fantasmi, bens troppo alcol.Perfino il narratore meno affidabile del solito Uno che dice che si trovato con gl [...]


    11. The narrator tells us that it is Christmas Eve at his Uncle John s house Gathered together are of the narrator, old Dr Scrubbles, the local curate, Mr Samuel Coombes, Teddy Biffles and Uncle John At the party goes on and they of the punch is drunk, the merrier they become It s really a short, laugh out loud book I may actually pull it out again on Christmas Eve Don t let the fact that it s ghost stories confuse you it s funny, not scary.


    12. I seem to be becoming something of a Jerome K Jerome fan girl It s impossible to read him without giggling, even in public Such warm and uncomplicated joy mirth The way he digresses so wildly and unapologetically tickles me every time.




    13. This is a very short, funny book Written very much in the same style as Three Men in a Boat He has a very dry humor that reminds me of Mark Twain I laughed until I cried.



    14. I extremely enjoyed the first section of the book, the actual after supper ghost stories I only wished that I d been longer The interlude made me laugh out loud Having said that, I liked clocks , and tea kettle the most out of the other tales The beginning of dreams was also funny, but the rest not so much.


    15. Hilarious Oh my god, I should have expected it to be funny, but I wasn t quite expecting this The gentleman who befriends the murderous ghost and then walks out without his trousers was fabulous.It was Christmas Eve.I begin this way because it is the proper, orthodox, respectable way to begin, and I have been brought up in a proper, orthodox, respectable way, and taught to always do the proper, orthodox, respectable thing and the habit clings to me.Of course, as a mere matter of information it i [...]



    16. Peccato sia cos breve I fantasmi di Jerome sanno il fatto loro e sono ben lungi dall essere disperati o afflitti da chiss quale passato Sono rimasti qui di loro propria convinzione e non perch hanno delle faccende da risolvere D altro canto, gli umani vivi che incontrano non si spaventano per niente e, passata la curiosit , vi conversano con interesse fino a infastidirsi per il disturbo notturno Un po come la pragmatica famiglia americana de Il fantasma di Canterville , per intenderci E diverten [...]


    17. Piccolo ma spassosissimo libricino ricco di Vigilie di Natale, fantasmi, pipe fantasma e tabacco fantasma L umorismo di Jerome della miglior qualit , di quella che non si limita a farti sorridere, ma a farti ridere da solo Ogni volta che cinque, sei inglesi si raccolgono intorno a un fuoco la Vigilia di Natale, incominciano a raccontarsi storie di fantasmi Non siamo soddisfatti, la Vigilia di Natale, se ognuno non racconta i suoi aneddoti autentici sugli spettri In questo allegro periodo di fest [...]


    18. Raccontino gradevole ma al limite dell insignificante Sembra che Kafka si sia preso gioco degli scrittori anglosassoni e dei clich della loro letteratura e cultura riguardo i classici racconti sui fantasmi e in fondo sembra prendersi gioco anche dei lettori Ad ogni modo chi ha curato l ebook meriterebbe di cambiare mestiere per la quantit infinita di refusi che ho trovato.


    19. Geniale, mi ha fatto un sacco ridere Peccato siano solo 40 pagine Mi ha messo una gran nostalgia di Three men in a boat e per rimediare a questa grande solitudine ho dovuto comprare The Complete Jerome K Jerome The Collected Works a 0,99 3


    20. I really enjoyed this It s brilliantly read and it deconstructs many popular ghost stories If you enjoy historical ghost stories, its a joy to hear them again, but with an increasingly addled narrator gradually destroying them.


    21. interesting and fun ghost stories by Jerome, kind of reminds me of Saki, there s that humor, that you just want a bit ofAnyway, its a really short read, or you may opt to listen to it, and its just as good as Three men in a Boat





    22. Jerome K Jerome is delightful in this slim volume of humorous ghost stories But my favorite book of his remains Three Men in a Boat.


    23. Written well, but not scary I would say the writing was easy but my expectations was much higher I guess I was looking for a book that was like Scary Stories.
