Great book

If you liked Off to be the Wizard you will like this. It's not quite as funny but it's a great read.
Like Daniels performance was great as always.

Brilliant!

Fantastic Hitchhikers guide humour. Brilliantly performance with colourful characters and an interesting back story. I will be listening to this one again.

enthralling performance, excellent read

like all Scott Meyer titles, if you see the twist coming you're not looking hard enough.

Simply great!

Since "Off to be a Wizard", I started listening to audiobooks from Scott Meyer and I just find his sotries great! Simple, but with unexpected twists, no extreme violence, happy endings (so far, I do hope that continues!) and easy listening. I relax and laugh with his books and for me it's the perfect companion for power walks in the morning!

Odd pronunciation slightly spoils a great story

It's interesting that Luke Daniels is an audiobook narrator. I find his way of reading somewhat offputting and distracting. Some words he outright mispronounces (shone like "shown" rather than "on" - maybe that's an American accent thing, however; I'm British) but the most distracting is that sentences like '"Alright," he grunted.' are read as if two distinct sentences: '"Alright." He grunted.' as if the character said "alright" and then followed that with a grunt. Maybe I'm reading too much into this but it was certainly distracting to me.

On the plus side, the characters' voices (and accents) are pretty consistent and distinct (or similar where appropriate).

I quite enjoyed the story. It's a bit of a slow starter, but I did get into it and found it enjoyable. I won't spoil the story but I must admit I saw a different outcome coming towards the end. Still, the one I got was also fun and interesting.
