Ten silly stories by Canadian humourist Stephen Leacock. (Summary by Tricia G) (3 hr 27 min)


Great listen

(5 stars)

Leacock pokes fun at just about every conceivable style of fiction popular in his day, read in perfect deadpan by TriciaG. Some stories are more effective than others, and one of them was so true to the genre it was trying to ridicule that I found myself forgetting that it was supposed to be a parody and didn't find it funny at all. Nevertheless, if you listen to this recording without laughing out loud several times, you are made of stern stuff indeed!

Funny, a little dated.

(3 stars)

A Librivox recording that’s funny in parts and dated in others. In each section the author writes a short story which parodies the tropes of one of the genres popular in his time. Some of the jokes still find the mark.

TriciaG - Thank you
