ti is a fun book
it was Narrated by Yahtzee
i laugh all way through the book
Yangtze Croshaw's performance was breathtaking. A wide scope of accents and voices. At no point was i ever uncertain which character was speaking. He kept the pace of the book and I never felt out of sync with the story.
Unique idea executed almost perfectly. I do have to begrudgingly ding the man for a star because he makes the new author mistake of repeating certain phrases enough for the reader or listener to catch onto it.
All of it.

Yahtzee is such a witty writer, he created a colorful, imaginative world with memorable characters and interesting scenes that over all left a feeling of content.
No, I wouldn't say that it's better, but I wouldn't say the print version is better either. I believe they compliment each other.
It reminds me of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in that a person largely not involved with a conflict gets thrown into it with his own goals to get things "back to normal" at the forefront instead of the larger conflict of the story. The both also have the sci-fi/fantasy elements, and the British sense of humor.
The author and narrator are the same person, so by hearing the audiobook, I got to hear the text as he intended it to be heard when the words were going through his own head. I especially loved the different voices he attributed to each of his characters, which helped a good deal with getting a sense of their characters early in the novel.
Yes and no. I would have listened to it all in one sitting, except that I got the sense at some points that the narrative was beginning to drag. It didn't, in my opinion, ultimately do so, but at a couple parts, I was beginning to be afraid it was starting to.
Sometimes the narration of the audiobook reads a bit weird. There's no clear indication of a transition between chapters. Sometimes he sounds just too matter-of-fact, like we're being read a manual, rather than a story. The story itself is entertaining, and the humor is nice and dry. I especially appreciate that the narration doesn't tell us every little emotional change or interpretation that goes on with the characters throughout the process of the narrative, but lets us infer things, while most popular novels recently can't seem to help but condescend to tell the reader everything. The first person perspective is especially helpful to this, as it allows us to hear the ways the protagonist attempts to deceive himself.
Mogworld is a good solid and colorful story. good plot and relatable content I watched many (let's drowned out videos) on YouTube by Ben Croshaw and this book is one of many his many works that I enjoyed. by far my favorite works he has done, I look forward to read Jam and more of his let's play and ego review to name a few. thank you Mr Yhatzee and let's hope Hasbro doesn't file suit. oh and by the off chance you are reading this Mr Yhatzze you have given me many ideas on writing for my own book I've been working on thank you again sir.
Absolutely. Funny, a great listen, fantastic story with great closure.
Jim, just came across amazingly.
Jim was performed great, a close second though was Mr. Wonderful, I was enticed by his voice every time I heard him.
Dead and NOT loving it!
Would listen to again and again!

Addresses the ethical horizon of self-aware AI in an enjoyable fashion.
Memorable characters. Jim + party, primary villains, special mention for Mr Wonderful.
Lampoons standard tropes of online games & fantasy without being obnoxious.
Enjoyable denouemont, complete and satisfying with multiple explorations. No limp attempts at sequels.
Barry character narration irritating for amount of 'stage time + story significance' (art direction critique - robotic and somewhat boring, lack of dimension)
