Jonathan Cake does a marvelous job bringing the fun of this clever story to life. Absorbing and original work in the best tradition of English children's authors such as Edith Nesbit. Charming first entry of a series.
Nurd and the Porsche, but many parts of this book made us laugh out loud.
Samuel Johnson, the hero
Like the name as it is.
John Connolly is a great writer who has won many awards like the Edgar. I love his Charlie "Byrd" Parker series.
If you liked Good Omens (one of my favorite all-time books and audio books) and you loved Roald Dahl books as a kid, you'll enjoy this book. It is a lot of fun. Jonathan Cake does an excellent job of bringing the book to life with a good range of voices and great comic timing.
Recommend to adults and children who enjoy fantasy. Great vocal performance, great writing.
The plot was fun, the voices were wonderful, slightly scary but very clever and fun.
Nerd was a crack up. But they all were - from the main characters to the minor ones.
Samuel and his dog. Definitely.
Clever mix of actual science and wild fantasy. Loved it.
This book about demons trying to take over the world is very cute, and brought to mind Good Omens by Pratchett and Gaiman. Samuel Johnson and Boswell are wonderful heroes, and the flow of the story keeps you riveted.
This was a very entertaining book. I dont know if it was written for kids or for adults but it is better read for kids. Great book though for fun!
The dead rising at the church.
Great narration and caricature portrayal.
Lots of jokes and references that an adult listener can enjoy.
The narrator made this book enjoyable...story was not that exciting but the narration sent it into the good listen realm. Cute, easy listen for those mind numbing commutes.
This is one of the very best YA books I've listened to. My family listened to it in the car and it was laugh out loud funny. It really kept everyone's attention.
I'd have to say Nerrd - Scourge of Five Dieties. Who knew.
Loved the varieties of English accents. Really amazing range and all very spot on.
I am now downloading the rest of the series, sure hope they're as good as this one!
I like to listen to adventure stories and funny stories. I have a real preference for travel tales and sometimes even enjoy a good mystery. I love fiction, but also like to learn facts. I like all kinds of stories. Follow me, if you do too!
I guess if you like sci-fy, you might like it. I don't even know why I try!
Not write it.
the performance was OK
I didn't listen all the way through, so it would be hard to say.
Not my thing - a mistake for me!
Not right away.
Something a little lighter.
It was decent, didn't keep my attention, had to force myself to finish.
