I had no idea that Bubba was on audio. None. I am straight up flabbergasted. I treasure the misadventures of Bubba and his pals, and the way my schedule had shifted I lost the time to do any sort of reading. My Bubba buying days were over, and I had to bid farewell to one of the funniest series I had ever read! Then, lo and behold I discover that John G. Hartness went and started putting his books on Audible. I found out via Messenger on facebook, and when I did I started shouting and yelling and my wife asked me what was going on, and I said "Bubba's Back!!!" I had really missed him. Turns out that Season three was right where I had left off, I had missed Old Hank's appearance, so I started it all over from the beginning and listened until I got to the new section (yeah, I can wait all day on Christmas to open presents, so no sweat). By the time it was over it felt like Old Home Week. I had revisited long lost friends whom I had deeply missed.
One thing that really sold me was the amazing way that John Solo filled in with the voices. Whenever I had read a Bubba Story, I always heard Tim Wilson's voice. He's a comedian/singer who makes occasional appearances on the Bob and Tom radio show and he sings a song called the Beer Belly Blues. Well, if you listen to him and Solo's version of Bubba they are pretty dang close to one another. That suited me right down to the ground. He does amazing other voices too, not just Bubba. He has a handle on the whole cast, and makes this have the feel of an audio stage production. I will say that the man knows how to read a story, and nails the comedic timing and inflections. Hecksfire, I daresay that he vocally embodies Bubba to a tee. As for the stories, well they are all action packed and filled to the brim with some rough and tumble humor. I daresay that the series could stand alone without all the funny business, but then it would just be like every other monster fighting series. The humor takes it to another level. In this season, kinda like tv innit, we see the big fella fighting vampires, a bare arsed voodooin' priest, the legendary Puck, suits of armor ala Scooby Doo, and an appearance by hank Williams, Sr. I honestly think the biggest adversary he faced in this collection was his phone, when he not only had to put an app on it, but play a game as well.
Bubba the Monster Hunter is an amazing series that you would be wise to pick up, and not pass on. Because if you pass on it you will regret it until you yourself pass on. Skeeter, get me outta this mess! Seriously, this is one of those rare series in which you like the protagonist even if he is a drunken lout who likes going to strip clubs and pickin' on his pal, Skeeter. Don't miss out on the pure fun, the pulpy action, and the paranormal activity. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
