    "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.

    "Utterly brilliant"

    These short stories were reminiscent of Roald Dahl and Jeffrey Archer. Darkly twisted, well narrated.

    "It's ok"

    I'm underwhelmed by the whole thing. Short stories that don't capture your imagination nor make you laugh that much.

    "Strange"

    I enjoyed this tome and will recommend it with one caveat, if you are not a fan of English humour it can be a little strange. I look forward to more.
