Jerome K Jerome is one of the funniest authors I have ever read. This collection of ghost stories was first published in 1891, and concerns a group of friends who are sitting around telling each other ghost stories on Christmas Eve.

Jerome never seemed to reach the same standard after he wrote three men in a boat,this book however does have some of his old comic wit in it quite enjoyed it.

I promise you will laugh out loud reading this book. To read Jerome K Jerome is like watching good stand up comedy. If you have never read him before I would also recommend "Three Men in a Boat", and "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow".

Funny stories from the gentleman who penned 'Three Men In A Boat'. I really enjoyed it and re-read the stories -- especially when I cannot sleep. Get told off for giggling though!

70 odd years on I still find Jerome K Jerome can make me laugh out loud. (And annoy my wife!)

Jerome K Jerome is one of the funniest authors I have ever read. "Told After Supper" was first published in 1891, and concerns a group of six friends sitting around telling each other ghost stories on Christmas Eve. The introduction alone is worth the price of this book, as Jerome proceeds to poke fun at ghost stories and at ghosts themselves.
I promise you will laugh out loud reading this book. To read Jerome K Jerome is like watching good stand up comedy. If you are new to this author I would also recommend "Three Men in a Boat" and "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow".

Nowhere near as funny as "Three Men in a Boat". Rather long-winded in places and only occasionally made me laugh out load.
