Brilliant!

Strange, intriguing, funny and, so much more.
I loved every single performance and story and I'm sure you (yes mate you reading this) will as well.

Awesome! Snarkiest of all snark.

Thanks for such an entertaining read! Witty, contemporary, brash, hilarious, and overall very very very very enjoyable.

A Decent Freebie!

Certainly as a freebie I can't complain about this one. Five varied stories, all a bit on the strange side which will appeal in different ways to different people. My personal favourite was the new take on the ancient Egyptian curse in "Mummy Business" but I found at least one wry smile in each of them. There is at one point cracking line describing Noel Edmonds which I particularly enjoyed. The "IT Man" was almost Luke Smitherd-like in its approach but very much a light version of him given its brevity.

I have only occasionally seen the TV series and obviously you miss the visuals from the experience but I think those of us that read and listen to audiobooks a lot don't need much help in that department.

I wonder if this is a pre-cursor to a series . . .

Five uneven short stories. Two good. Three so so.

I've never seen any Crackanory TV tales. Not broadcast in my country. So this is my review solely based on this audiobook. No comparison to the TV show. No spoilers.

1: Kill Phil - Sort of a modernized internet slanted version of "Strangers on a Train". Good story idea. Enjoyable.

2: Mummy Business - Not very enjoyable. Story that goes nowhere really. Slight chuckle at the characters trouble saying Nefertiti correctly though.

3: The Character Assassin - The best of the stories. A creepy story that could have been a good Twilight Zone episode.

4: The Egg That Knew Too Much - A story that feels like a mix between Twilight Zone and Monty Python. Not very enjoyable though.

5: The IT-man - The least enjoyable story. Had a hard time focusing on the story at first. Then it was just... bad.

Narrators for all the stories was great. Lively and eminently listenable.

Tales of the UnEGGspected.

Tales of the UnEGGspected. Cracking yokes of bad eggs, and twisted tails of porkies told, scratching the surface of the final straws in the animal farm of modern battery farmed urbane dystopia.
