    Description

    Fans of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Good Omens - your wait is over! The next ridiculous sci-fi fantasy series from a snarky British guy is here! 

    And now you can experience the complete Doomsayer Journeys Trilogy in one volume! 

    The Last Volunteer

    The fate of the world lies with one man: Bip Plunkerton. 

    Talentless psyentist and frequent drinker at The Empty Goat, young Bip Plunkerton will follow in his father’s footsteps as a Volunteer…footsteps that have yet to return from the wilds of the wide world outside. 

    Traverse the harsh weather of the formidable Ice Plains, navigate the Boiling Sea, and suffer the ravaging heat of the Bone Desert. Bip’s impossible task, continually thwarted by the semi-corporeal Mr. Random, is to warn the rest of the world of the coming doom of the Massive Ball of Death hurtling through space. 

    Will the last volunteer be any more successful than the first? 

    Will Bip save planet Bersch from a fate set into motion millennia before? 

    The Chained Immortal

    After announcing to the public that the Massive Ball of Death is coming to destroy everything, Bip finds himself locked away with the other criminally insane. Aided by his psyentific talent for exploding things and creating the random igloo, Bip manages to escape and team up with the immortal Handen Strike, the first Volunteer who ventured out to spread the Clarion’s message of total world devastation. 

    Joining their band of misfits is Azron, Genuine Diamond Geezer (1st class), and Xharon, a nearly nude warrior princess. 

    Traveling across the face of Bersch, these four adventurers, albeit somewhat reluctant, must brave raging giants, the fountain of death, and savage birdmen to ensure their message reaches the ears of the very emperor who has been trying to imprison them. 

    With these three gems saving the world, what’s the worst that could happen? 

    The Mad Emperor

    When we last left our adventurers, the Massive Ball of Death was massively falling toward the certain death of all Bersch’s inhabitants. 

    The secret to stopping the destruction and saving the world - if it should, indeed, be saved - is hidden away deep in the desert sands. 

    Joining their crew is the slightly crazy, time/space traveling professor who also happens to be Xharon’s daddy. And who also happens to really want her to wear more than just her knickers, much to Bip’s dismay. 

    But, back to the tale! Bip and his crew must race against the clock to unearth the secret weapon before the mad emperor can use it for total galactic annihilation. Will our brave adventurers beat the clock? 

    Find out if the Doomsayers were right, or if they're just another bunch of idiots looking to get on television by saying stupid crap.

    trash

    If you think stupid is funny you might like this. The story never begins. I listened to the first hour then gave up.

    Epic journey. Epic snark. Highly recommend!

    The editor review is spot on. If you like Hitchhiker's Guide and Good Omens, you will surely like this collection from Steve Wetherell. Very funny, very engaging, great story and characters.

    CC Hogan's narration is brilliant.

    This is a steal for one credit!

    Fun Books!

    By all that's entertaining, that was a good listen!!
    The descriptions of the world reminded me of Final Fantasy which made the world so real for me.

    A Whimsical Fantasy/Sci-fi Adventure

    This world, or maybe I should say universe because the perspective does zoom in and out frequently enough, has an interesting blend of science fiction, fantasy and comedy.

    If you like the idea of “magic is just science that we don’t understand,” characters that meander from one adventure to the next while trying to save the world, and quite a lot whimsical odd-ball humor than give this book a try.

    That being said there were times that I felt the books were dragging on and it was difficult for me to keep listening. I just didn’t really connect to the characters. It was the plot and the humor that kept me going in the end though and I’m glad I did because I really enjoyed the troupe that came into play at the end of the novel.

    Whimsical. Profound. Perfectly Balanced.

    Definitely worth the listen. The message doesn't water down the entertainment aspect of the story. You can choose to simply take it as a fun adventure or look for the deeper philosophy woven through it. I won't be forgetting these characters.

    OK at the start, but boy it drags on.

    I was enjoying the first book in the box set, but then it just gets slow and boring.I felt like the one character who was immortal and was board to tears. I did not care what happened to the three or the planet they were trying to save. Do not recommend there are a lot better listens to choose than this sleeper.

    WHAT A FIND

    This is my first written review after 500+ reads. Downloaded this one on a whim and felt obliged to tell everyone else. What a find. 20 hours of pure joy. Narration was PERFECT. Only regret is that Steve Wetherell doesn't have anything else to read

    excellent

    Hilarious, fun, and exhilarating. Just a fun ride from start to finish. If you're fan of Sci-fi Fantasy that knows how to tell a joke this one is worth checking out.
