    "Some Funny Parts"

    This has some funny parts and some just talking discussion parts. I thought it was good for the price, but if I had to pay a lot for it, I would hold out for something else.

    "language"

    did not get past the first few minutes. When foul language (in my opinion) is in the very first sentence then there is probably more to follow.

    "Not my cup of tea"

    While I did laugh once or twice, the style of humor did not appeal to me. I usually enjoy British humor, but I think you had to know the show the comedians were on to appreciate the jokes

    "Lost in translation?"

    I usually get obscure humor but this felt like I was only hearing the audio portion of a TV show with a lot of back story that did not translate into the recorded version.

    "I enjoyed this book"

    The story kept me coming back for more with this book. As always I want there to be more, but i get that all books have to end. I will definitely look for more by this author!

    "Good parts"

    A few good parts, but mostly just talk. Was expecting a lot more for comedy!

    "Very uneven collection of British comedy"
    What would have made Contemporary Comedy Collection better?

    I'm a fan of Mitchell & Webb and the Little Britain guys, so if there was more performances from them in here I think I would have liked it better.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were some funny things in here, but not everything.


    Any additional comments?

    Luckily I got this for free, so it was worth every penny I paid for it! lol.

    "It was ok"
    Would you try another book from the author and/or the narrator?

    Yes I would


    Has Contemporary Comedy Collection turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

    It was not the narrator, I think wants needs to be in the mood for this type of material


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Story
    "funny but sometimes hard to follow"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The accents of the performers and the speed at which they converse can sometimes take away from understanding the humor. Otherwise it is ok. I would recommend only getting this when it is free, don't waste a credit or cash on it.


    Would you recommend Contemporary Comedy Collection to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes but only when it is free.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    Could you see Contemporary Comedy Collection being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no
