    Description

    Fans of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - your long wait for a successor is over! 

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

    Talentless scientist 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? Probably not, but we can likely drag this question out for a couple more audiobooks, though. Right?

    An amazing book with the perfect choice of narrator.

    One of the first audiobooks I listened to was The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The writing style you have for it captures a lot of the feel and the narrators cadence and technique does a lot to add to the experience. It is kind of like listening to a favorite book again for the first time.

    Love this book

    I had read this book before the audio, but it is even better in audio. I can not wait for the next book to come to audio!

    Not Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    The style, at first, seemed to be classic Douglas Adams. Unlike Adams' books, I couldn't find anything funny in the story. And, I very much wanted this audiobook to be funny. Maybe the book itself is better. So, if you want a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fix, you will not find it here.

    false advertizing

    This book it not particularly funny. The reviews about it being HHGTTG like in any way, ARE DEAD WRONG. The narrator has a thick accent to a US ear, making it hard to follow without concentration. There are a handful of funny one liners; The job of Penguin exerciser comes to mind. But that is about it. It also is absolutely not a standalone novel. It ends on a cliff hanger of sorts, with little resolved and the reader unable to care what happens next. Don't waste your credits or cash. if you really feel the need get it in Ebook and avoid the poor narrator.

    Not a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe type fan

    First, Huge Authors and Dragons Fan. And have funded both of his GoFundMe campaigns. Loved the Brandon Thighmaster audio book voices by him. So much love and support to you Steve.

    As for this audiobook. Mainly was not a fan of this type of story and the Narrator's reading was incredibly irritating to me. Could not finish even an hour of the audiobook.
    Could not get thru Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe either, and this book felt like that type of dry witty humor. I prefer more Monty Python please. So it was just not my cup of tea. Probably many others will enjoy it.

    Loved this book!

    The style of writing reminds me of Neil Gaiman, Terry Prachett, and Douglas Adams with a touch of Guy Ritchie for the seedy back alley characters that are just awesome. Thanks Steve, can't wait for more!

    Good Fun!

    A good fun read. The narrator brings a touch more mirth with his tone. A bit science fiction, a bit fantasy. You can feel the loving influence of Terry Pratchett. There is absolutely beautiful world/universe building that I want to see more of. I can't wait for the next one to come out!

    Loved it

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    I have to say, I REALLY enjoyed this book. It was a fun and wild ride. It has tons of humor and there is lots of action to keep things going. The narrator does a great job of bringing the story to life. If you are looking for a fun, tongue in cheek, sci fi/fantasy story, this is a solid choice. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who likes books like Hitchiker's Guide.

    An Epic Quest

    So glad I finally started this book. Once I started listening, I couldn't stop. I loved the humor and adventure of the story, and I cannot wait to read the next one.

    A fun ride, not for the serious at heart

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    So this is definitely a humor-driven book. It kept a smile on my face basically the whole time I was listening to it. From the Yeti trying to boil the main character for dinner to the immortal, but not immune to damage, "hero" that jumps off cliffs to save time. If you want hard Sci-Fi this isn't it, but if you want something that will keep you chuckling and smiling all day long this is what you're looking for.

    In all seriousness, this book is a riot, completely ridiculous and I loved it.
