    What disappointed you about Classic Humorous Stories?

    Not humorous in the least.


    Has Classic Humorous Stories put you off other books in this genre?

    Yes


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

    Someone that didn't sound like a digital construct.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Classic Humorous Stories?

    I listened to 3/4 of part one and there is nothing I would keep.


    Any additional comments?

    Waste of my credit for trying this service. May I have another? I won't be listening to any more of this and am happy to undownload it.
