    In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The narrator himself was the star of the show, doing a fantastic job with characterization with just his voice, adjusting pitch and tone appropriately--top notch reading.


    Which character – as performed by Yahtzee Croshaw – was your favorite?

    All are well voiced, so it's hard to say. The protagonist gets the most air time and, as such, is probably a favorite for his resigned gallows humor. The lead antagonist's quirks of speech pattern became a bit annoying after a while, ending each statement with the rising tone of a question.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll look forward to more of Croshaw's voicework, though his story writing will probably need a few books to get warmed up. I wonder if he wrote this as he would an episode of Zero Punctuation that we might find a more engaging and less conventional tale.

  • Lonesome Dove

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Richard Delman says: "A masterpiece. An epic western story."

    What did you love best about Lonesome Dove?

    Characterization of Captain Gus McCrae. Lee Horsley did a great job fleshing out characters with different voices despite them all having a broad Southern feel.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lonesome Dove?

    Pick a death, any death.


    Have you listened to any of Lee Horsley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't but he did a great job distinguishing the many voices (well over 20 different ones)
