I found the vast majority of the stories well worth reading and thought provoking. Russ Watkins

This collection of short stories, one of Auld's "Esperanto Classics," is a gem, and one of the first books that made me take Esperanto literature more seriously. As the description states, the stories range from happy to sad, but when I think back on these stories, I associate them with melancholy and thoughtfulness. These aren't usually trite or easy stories, but they aren't dark or depressing, either. Szilagyi's Esperanto isn't watered down for beginners, but it isn't overly complex. This was among the first books I tackled after "Gerda Malaperis," and while it was slow going for awhile, with frequent references to the dictionary, the experience was very rewarding. -Tim Westover
