    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?

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Very Funny Sci Fi/Fantasy Novel

    I really enjoyed this book, it very much reminded me of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, in that it was very funny/ridiculous and also had an interesting story involving aliens. I find the Magic/Science system pretty interesting and want to see how Bip progresses with it in future installments. The overall story is interesting with the Present Day story of Bip and his journey being told concurrently with the past story of Handen Strike and his journeys keeps things fresh. It was a bit short and seemed to end a bit abruptly but that just leaves me waiting for the second part.

    The author C.C. Hogan was a great choice, he has a great voice and did a great job with the humor and comedy in the book.

    Big fan of Steve Wetherell

    I loved the humor of this book and the heroes the author created. I enjoyed how the story flipped from past to present to where exactly are we again. If you enjoy the writings of Christopher Moore, Douglas Adams, and the like, you should definitely give this book a go. If you listen to the podcast of Authors and Dragons you'll find that Brandon Thighmaster is one hell of a writer.

    I wish the narrator created more distinctive voices for all the characters but that would be my only complaint. I enjoyed listening to C.C. Hogan regardless.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    Worth it

    I usually use my credits on books 30+ hours long, but I've familiar with the authors brand of humor from his works in the Shingles series and from the A&D podcast. I was not dissatisfied. While the style was a bit out of my comfort zone, I really enjoyed the book. The narrator was great, and I can't help to feel that the experience was bettered by his contribution. If you like funny Science Fiction / Fantasy stuff, like say Hitch Hikers guide to the Galaxy, give this book a shot.
