Difficult to listen to
This is an unusual collection of stories which I struggled to engage with because the narrator had a very irritating voice.

What disappointed you about Great Humorous Stories?
I challenge anybody to be able to get past the second story. The intonation of the narration is all wrong and makes listening to this book a deeply unpleasant and sometimes tortuous experience. Its a crying shame because the stories are good.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Dreadful, dreadful dreadful narration, intonation.
Any additional comments?
