This collection of short stories had me hooked from the start, each one only lasts 15 minutes so they are really easy to finish and I got hooked from the first minute of each one, so its very easy to listen for hours. Great collection of stories, well worth a listen 😀
I've not read the print version but i did watch the tv show. that was cool.
Rik Mayall. This took me back to watching Grim Tales as a kid.
Each story had its own characters so it was hard to choose my favorite.
Again each story had its own merits so it was hard to choose my favorite.
It is great and its free. Win win.

I use audible because I am too lazy to hold a book.
I can't rate this collection of stories highly enough, or the masterful readings by a stunningly wide range of actors. Listen to them and have a bloody good chuckle.
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.
"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!

"Not my cup of tea."
There is enough cynicism & dark satire in life. I have no wish to willingly expose myself to more. I didn't listen to much of this, so others who enjoy drollery and don't mind the writer's stance may find it amusing, in the way I enjoyed The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy & other works by Douglas Adams.
Couldn't wait to get to the next story. Each one was captivating till the end. Loved the morals at the end for most of them. Favorite one, "Always carry a pen."
Each and every reader was perfectly suited to the story being told.
