    "Are you sitting comfortably"

    This was good but not the magic of series 1 and 2, sometimes it's time to say that's enough.

    "Lacking in Sophistication"

    I'm sure that my 15 year old self would have loved this series, with its "grown up story lines" and occasional adult language, but unfortunately it feels more like a comedy series with one, weak running joke to sustain it.

    Story
    "Jackanory get cracked again."

    A superb line up of narrators with well crafted stories is presented for our listening pleasure. The stories lead the listener along with "you knew who did it and follow the path to why." And some " you know what now listen to why and how. " I enjoyed it so much it lasted for one session.

    "another great series of short stories"

    my one disappointment with this one over the others are in previous series the reader and author as well as title of the story were announced. this series it was just straight into the story. But it was still a collection of 8 good stories

    Story
    "Not as good as the Seasons 1, 2 and 3."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really, didn't enjoy the variety of the stories in this current season.


    What will your next listen be?

    Probably a Bill Bryson book.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

    I don't know any of the narrators as this audible book did not mention who any of narrators were.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No. However, a comedy dramatisation of the Crackanory stories would be great.


    Any additional comments?

    The individual stories are not delimited properly. In the previous Crackanory seasons each story is properly introduced by a voice over giving the following details:

    Title of Story
    Author of story
    Narrator of story

    In this season there is only the Crackanory theme tune between two stories. So while you know that a new story has started you don't know what the book is, who the author is and who the narrator is (Unless you recognise the voice).

    "Easy to listen to."

    Maybe not everyones cup of tea, but will appeal to a lot of people who don't take life too seriously.
