Fun, creative, and thought-provoking

Thought-provoking with a wry smile. I love this and believe it will be a repeat go-to when I want to giggle and shift my thinking. The morals of some of the stories are hilarious. This was a great find.... And it was free from Audible! I would happily pay for more of these!

Best collection of twisted tales I've ever heard!

Finally a collection of short stories, wonderfully narrated, that are fresh and unique! I can't stop listening to them!

Absolutely, rip-roaringly hilarious!

A brilliant collection of short stories for adults with intelligent and unexpected twists and turns throughout. Every story was a delight of clever humour making references to ever day situations and bringing them to life with an ingenious and often weird twist.

Has a Few Stories Missing

Any additional comments?

It's hard to complain about getting the vast majority of this series in audio form for free, especially as I quite enjoyed a fair bit of Crackanory when I could catch it on TV. Some stories weren't to my taste, be it because of narration and/or the story itself (certain stories I found far too predictable and thus were quite boring to listen to, when I could tell exactly what would happen at every point), but overall, as a fan of things like Tales of the Unexpected, I found this mix of TotU and Jackanory quite a fun idea, and so I was pleased to find I could properly own the stories and listen to them whenever I want, thanks to Audible.<br/><br/>That said, in each release provided by Audible (originally, it was Series 1 and 2 released together, as Series 3 was not out at the time, and we've since had Series 3 released and subsequently, a release compiling the Series 1 & 2 and Series 3 releases together), there have been some stories missing, which is a shame. For instance, from Series 1, the first story of what was Episode 3 on TV ("The Teacup has Landed", read by Harry Enfield) is missing, and from Series 2, both stories that comprised Episode 4 ("Self Storage", read by Johnny Vegas and "The Obituary Writer", read by Meera Syal) and the first story of Episode 5 ("The Untangler", read by Warwick Davis) are all missing. Despite this, Harry Enfield still has been advertised as being a narrator on each of the releases of Series 1 & 2 on Audible.<br/><br/>There is at least one bonus story that was not seen on TV, in the form of "Legs & Co.", as read by David Baddiel, which was a nice enough addition, but it still feels odd that at least four stories can be counted as missing, especially when at least one of them is readily advertised.<br/><br/>As mentioned, it's very hard to complain about these releases from Audible, when they give them away for free, as part of their deal and sponsorship with Crackanory, but it would be nice to know why these stories were omitted, and possibly get them released too.

The stories are quite dark

The stories were beautifully presented and very nicely read. They were engaging and interesting but I did not enjoy them because I found them quite dark, cynical and nasty.
