Description

Have you ever seen a planet invaded by rampaging space mutants from another dimension or Nazi dinosaurs from the future?

Don't let this happen to you!

Rifts happen, so you should be ready when universes collide. A policy with Stranger & Stranger can cover all of your interdimensional insurance needs. Rated "Number One in Customer Satisfaction" for three years running, no claim is too big or too weird for Tom Stranger to handle.

But now Tom faces his greatest challenge yet. Despite being assigned the wrong - and woefully inadequate - intern, Tom must still provide quality customer service to multiple alternate Earths, all while battling tentacle monsters, legions of the damned, an evil call center in Nebraska, and his archnemesis, Jeff Conundrum. Armed with his Combat Wombat and a sense of fair play, can Tom survive? And will Jimmy the Intern ever discover his inner insurance agent?

It's time to kick ass and adjust claims.

Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) performs Larry Correia's madcap interdimensional tale of underwriting and space travel, where the only thing scarier than tentacle monsters is a high deductible.

Someone owes me a new keyboard

This is the funniest thing I've heard in years, and Adam Baldwin's performance only makes it better. His mastery of the Manatee language is unparalleled. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to listen to it again.

Most Unlikely Hero Ever!

I just finished listening to this and am not quite sure what hit me.

Larry Correia has invented the most unlikely hero ever: an insurance agent dedicated to satisfying his customers' insurance needs because poor customer service is the ultimate sin. If you can suspend your disbelief and wrap your mind around THAT wild idea, you are in for an equally wild ride.

Garfield the Cat is a Dark God, Bear Grylls is a metric, Chuck Norris is a KickA** Arbiter and Terminators are people too. Many of our favorite sci-fi heroes and shows make cameo appearances, including the author himself.

Of course the hero has his burden to bear: the intern with the gender-studies degree. But Tom Stranger carries on with panache.

Adam Baldwin was terrific. You need to listen to this. Now.

Baldwin was awesome on the voiceover

The writing is funny enough but Baldwin puts it over the top. Lots of fun.

Do not drink coffee while listening to this

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is the second funniest thing ever after that killer joke from Monty Python! It is totally ridiculous and hilarious. As a devotee of comedy of the absurd I immensely enjoyed both the story and Mr. Baldwin's reading.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Free: The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent?

R. Lee Ermy as the secretary of defense! 'Nuff said!

Have you listened to any of Adam Baldwin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but he does a fantastic job.

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

Too many to list in the space provided

Any additional comments?

Buy it now and laugh until you cry!

Two Hours of Gut Busting Laughs!


I LOVED this story; it was freaking HILARIOUS!

Not only was this story creative, fun to listen too, and full of interesting characters, I could actually relate it! I work for one of the largest insurance companies where the claims department is one on end of the building, and the call center is on the opposite side and I'm in the middle. While I do love my job, the next time I'm having a bad day, I putting on my headphones, turning The Adventures of Tom Stranger, and just going laugh it off!

Adam Baldwin's narration was over the top AWESOME! He really animated this story and I loved his performance!

Thank you for Larry for such a great story!

Strange in all the right ways.

Would you listen to Free: The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent again? Why?

This story deserves more than one listening. This is one of those fun romps that you absolutely should share with friends over the course of an evening.
Adam Baldwin does an amazing job portraying the wacky and weird setting.

Who was your favorite character and why?

President Adam Baldwin from the alternate Earth was hilariously funny - and, in true Firefly spirit, Larry Correia poked fun at the "people" at Fox who decided to cancel the series. Even Jayne's hat makes an appearance.

What about Adam Baldwin’s performance did you like?

The voices and mannerisms made it clear who he was imitating for the real world people, and gave all the other characters a distinct personality that exemplified who they are - sniveling and whiny for Jeff Conundrum, to the stoic and never hasty Tom Stranger, to his rather funny channeling of Shaggy from Scooby Doo for Tom's over his head and inept accidental intern.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I absolutely listened through this book in one sitting. It started off captivating, and did not disappoint.

just sooo good

excellent self-aware writing, packed with great references, read in an expert one man ensemble of voice acting.
I just want to see more of this world so bad. Larry's ability to transform ordinary work positions into badass warriors has been in the background of several series he's written, and it just gets better here.

Do not eat, drink or drive

While listening as you are not covered by Stranger and Stranger and you might choke, shoot soda out your nose, or rear end a Prius.
Yes it's that funny.

High-Larry-ous

Somebody tell me why Adam Baldwin isn't spending all of his time narrating audiobooks. I had no idea he was so good at this. Wait to you find out who the secretary of defense is on the first earth. You will listen to Adam narrating him thinking that can't be but it is. The story from Larry Correia is hilarious, and I have no idea how Adam Baldwin managed to keep a straight face long enough to narrated without collapsing into hysterical laughter in the middle of telling the story. But somehow he does and it is amazing. Please tell me that the two of them plan on taking this show on the road. They could do arena shows with this. They could make millions.

Try not to laugh, I dare you.

Everything about this is funny. I spent the whole book laughing and trying not to smile. I got this free as a pre-order and would have gladly paid for it. If you want a totally wahoo sci-fi short story go ahead and get this one.
