Publisher's Summary

Join Professor John Lloyd and curators Jimmy Carr, Humphrey Ker, Phill Jupitus and Sarah Millican as they plunge down the badger hole of ignorance in a search for the universe's most mind-boggling oddnesses.

The Museum of Curiosity is BBC Radio 4's monumental comedy edifice and the only one with gargoyles in the foyer. It allows nothing inside that doesn't make you scratch your head, stroke your chin or, at the very least, go 'hmm'. Fortunately, helping to fill its almost vacant plinths is a gathering of the world's most original minds. Among the guests bearing donations to the museum in these 25 episodes are Al Murray, Jo Brand, Pamela Stephenson-Connolly, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Sara Pascoe, Mark Watson, Richard Ingrams, Richard Herring, Cleo Rocos, Paul Sinha, David Frost, Richard Osman, Sandi Toksvig, Rich Hall, Clive Anderson, Neil Innes, Ken Dodd, Henry Blofeld, Tim Smit, Rufus Hound, Matt Lucas, Susan Calman and many more. In addition to all the episodes from series 5-8, the 2015 'Coding Special' is also included. Duration: 12 hours approx.

    "Great programme, but this audiobook is incomplete."

    Great programme but there is a duplicate episode at the end of the recoding, meaning an episode is missing.

    "Great show ruined by missing episodes"

    This collection is missing series 5 episode 2 and series 8 episode 6. Don't spend money on this until Audible have confirmed that they have corrected the problem.

    "Still missing episodes - as of 30.Aug.17"


    This is such a great series, though shame they still haven’t corrected the file as it is missing two episodes.

    Missing = series 5, episode 2 (instead we’ve got series 4, episode 2)
    Missing = series 8, episode 5 (series 8, episode 6 is duplicated at end)

    Whilst this may be annoying, I do recommend getting it. V.enjoyable.

    "Brilliant comedy!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, educational and incredibly amusing.


    What other book might you compare The Museum of Curiosity: Series 5-8 to, and why?

    Series 1-4, and similar in context to both QI and The Unbelievable Truth


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The cast is brilliant throughout, exceptional contributions in each episode.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Always fascinated by learning new facts.


    Any additional comments?

    The first two episodes have been cut short. I'd love it if this could be rectified in the edit, but otherwise it's brilliant, and amazing value for money. Can't wait for volumes 9-12!!!
