Bleak Expectations: The Complete First Series audiobook cover art

Funny, bizarre, offbeat and entertaining

A wonderful farce. Enjoyed every moment with the exception of the excessive canned laughter.

So many wonderful and bizarre characters. Weird plot that provides plenty of good laughs.

Loved it. I was hoping it would never end. Great characters and a fantastic story.

And De Fun Don't Done audiobook cover art

Too damn long

Overall

I usually like the Les Norton books but this one just waffled on too much.The narrator lost interest at times. The story could have been written and told in half the time - far to much padding Mr Barret.

I guess we all have a bad one occassionally and this is the Les Norton bad one. Recommend any of Les' other adventures though.

An American Tragedy audiobook cover art

Appalling

Overall

I don't mind a bit of crass humour but this...well I was surprised Audible would allow material like this on their site. There are jokes about pedophilia and some other exceptionally tasteless, sorry can't call it humor, rubbish.

Avoid this like the plague unless you are some kind of sicko!

Just get all the series. If you love British comedy you will enjoy this too.

Poor. Save your money.

I don't mind a good dirty joke and liberal amounts of smut if it's funny. This book has plenty of smut, bad language and some attempted dirty jokes but overall I did not find this book very humorous.

If you like adolescent humor and liberal amounts of the "f" and "c" words in a humorless context then you may like this but I doubt it.

Just not my type of humor I guess.

My recommendation is save your money.

The Price of Freedom audiobook cover art

Highly recommended

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 09-09-05

A first class lesson in "the price of freedom" under the suffocating atmosphere of communism and nazism or for that matter any dictatorship.

Very well read gripping story. I highly recommend this book to anyone interetsed not only in history but in an individual's struggle against tyranny, the injustices imposed by the so called great powers and the indomitable spirit of man to overcome great adversity.

One of the best books I have downloaded from Audible.

Plenty of gore

An enjoyable dramatisation. Watch out for bad language if younger teens are listening to this. Keeps you on the egde of your seat.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow audiobook cover art

A bit of fun

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-27-05

This was a fun listen, not real scary but enough to make the kids a little jumpy. Confused dramatisation regarding the accents but otherwise ok. If you need something to occupy kids on a car trip this is ok.
