    My first introduction to Saki, I fell in love. Small, tight, concise plot with enough suspense to get you captivated and carry you through to the end. Really enjoyed it, especially the "Pan" references. My first introduction to Saki, I fell in love.

    H.H Munro was the master of the short story. In this tightly written little yarn we are given a warning not to mock old gods and their worship. When a city woman desecrates an altar dedicated to Pan, the nature god shows his dark side. H.H.Munro could tell a great yarn in just a few pages. This is one of his shorter works but it its one of his most effective.

    Although the descriptions of manor country were beautiful , but the story is devoid of the delicious twists I have come to expect from Saki . So , though the ending was creepy , the story was a la Newton's third law of motion , an equal and opposite reaction to my expectations !

    This is my first read of a Saki book aka HH Munro. So his writing is new to me. Very prosaic and rich in words, I loved the description of the village countryside and had no idea of Pan. So that took a bit to get into. The overall lyrical style to the grisly ending is well done but creepy in the same vein. Fans of gore and horror would love this.

    A great little tale where a non-believer suffers fatal death when mocking anothers beliefs. It wasn't really fair for the main character, since she did not get much of a chance to become a believer if she wanted to, and the punishment a bit harsh - has similar connections to films like 'The Eye of the Devil' and 'Harvest Home' which are pagan horror stories. 'Saki' is the pen name of writer Hector Munro. A great little tale where a non-believer suffers fatal death when mocking anothers beliefs.

    I was slightly nonplussed by the style but got into it as I was reading. The short story not unlike The Bull revolves around the struggle between nature and civilisation in which the cruel face of Pan is again revealed through a character's death.

    2.5 stars. Don't mess with Pan. This story lacked the usual wit and humor of Munro's stories. Audible edition narrated by Nadia May. 2.5 stars. Don't mess with Pan. This story lacked the usual wit and humor of Munro's stories. Audible edition narrated by Nadia May.

    This was such a simple, short tale but sufficiently creepy. The plot was pretty well executed, the build up was great all through out the story with a very satisfying ending. Masterfully done.

    Not sure what was the point of the story? That Pan (nature god) is real?
