    1. Imagine - and I know it's not easy - that the Guardian's 'Digested Read' feature was funny. Further imagine that it could still be funny in a century's time. Impossible? For John Crace, certainly, but not for the comic genius who gave the world Zuleika Dobson and Enoch Soames. Some of the targets in this collection of festive parodies are pretty much forgotten now - I had to look up G.S. Street and Maurice Howlett, though having read Beerbohm's skewerings, I feel I could now recognise their work [...]


    2. 2.5*These short Christmas stories are well written but not what I had been wanting to read. I was looking for holiday cheer and/or sentiment; these are essentially parodies of various authors' writing styles. For those authors that I was familiar with (Kipling & Galsworthy to name two), the parodies were extremely apt. I would consider rereading this sometime when I am in a different mood (& now that I know what to expect).


    3. This is a compilation of short stories in Munsey's reader during the late 1800's. It was confusing at first to understand that each chapter was a different view of Christmas. The stories were excellent and caused me to think about Christmas in several different ways.


    4. Beerbohm's parodies of other writers are pretty convincing - he's an excellent mimic - but generally I found the stories themselves weren't all that engaging.
