Reviews - What do customers think about 1000 Years of Laughter: An Anthology of Classic Comic Prose?

Disappointing  Jul 21, 2003
I'm normally a great fan of the Naxos audiobook surveys. I've already enjoyed the History of the Theatre and the Story of English Literature, both involving the participation of David Timson. But this one just doesn't work for me. Perhaps my sense of humour is too rooted in the present, but I chuckled at very few of the pre-1850 extracts.

And yet the compilation does have its moments. I will be spending more time with 'Diary of a Nobody', 'Three Men in a Boat' and 'The Young Visiters' as a direct result of listening to this.

The compilation finishes about halfway through CD4. Goodness knows why Naxos saw fit to add on Wilde's 'The Remarkable Rocket' after this. Just because you have the free space doesn't mean you can stuff any old trailer for another audiobook (in this case, 'The Happy Prince').
