    "Sunday Jeff is God amongst men."
    Where does Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    After listening to this I wanted nothing more than to forget I'd ever 'been' with any other audiobook. I'll forever regret and lament that I hadn't stayed pure and let TESD Fair-re-re tale theater take my audiobook virginity.


    What other book might you compare Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater to and why?

    Compare it to another book? You're kidding, right? Why not compare the sun to a match? The finest French wine to fetid Florida swamp water? What a ponderous request you make!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Bry, Walt, Q, and Sunday Jeff....are Seraphim. Their voices are second only to God's own.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I challenge anyone to employ an alternate solution. The credits alone are superior to the content in total of every other audiobook ever published.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm starting a Kickstarter project to fund the resculpting of Mount Rushmore in the images of Bry, Walt, Q, & Sunday Jeff. Have four men ever held such sway over the collective attitude and mindset of an entire nation? I think not.
    These men are extraordinary.
    These men are unique.
    These men transcend the divine.

    Just kidding. They're lil ol ants just like the rest of us.

    "Expanding the idiom"

    Anybody can simply read words on a page and try to add character voices, but Tell 'Em Steve Dave went well past that providing insight and commentary into some classic fairy tales. You won't get just the "what" here, you'll get hilarious opinions on the "why".

    "TESD Being TESD"

    OK. If you don't listen to TESD on a regular basis I have two things to say: First, why? Second, buckle up.

    Incredibly hilarious retelling of a number of fairy tales. Walt, Bry, and Q (can't forget Sunday Jeff) are all in rare form. I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard.

    That being said, if you aren't familiar with these guys, you may be in for a rude awakening. They are incredibly inappropriate and foul mouthed, which I love. But may not be everyone's cup of tea.

    Great job boys.

    "As expected, simply effulgent!"
    Where does Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In my top 5, and I have thousands of audio books, hundreds on Audible alone.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Depends on which part... Bry, Q, Walt equally shine at various points.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The subtext of fairy tales explored by the modern thinking person.


    Any additional comments?

    Truly a great work of art, and a great introduction to anyone that has not yet discovered the podcast, Tell 'Em SteveDave

    Where does Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best by far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sunday Jeff always steps up!


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hilariousness


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Walt reaching back out to the dwarf community by praising the females for giving birth to a full sized child.


    Any additional comments?

    As a fan of the podcast and TV show, it's no surprise I loved every minute of this audio book. Maybe not something you can drop into out of the blue without knowing them, but a hilarious romp through the creep world of faerie tales.

    Story
    "TESD Nailed it"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a hilarious spin on terrible old public domain fairy tales. The usual TESD humor makes these stories listenable.


    What other book might you compare Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater to and why?

    I couldn't say what you could compare it to, but I can say that it won't disappoint.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    These tales as written would make an awful, awful read. Tired, dried up, irrelevant. Bry and crew make it perfectly acceptable for a 32 year old man to listen to fairy tales again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'll tell you this, by 35 minutes in I was laughing so hard I was crying.


    Any additional comments?

    You'll love it, I'm sure.

    "A solid, if a little unfocused, attempt"
    Where does Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well, I'm not sure how I can compare this to Learning German: Volume 1 (the other half of my audiobook collection), but if I had to choose I would say that Tell Em Steve Dave was slightly more entertaining if a little more incomprehensible.


    Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

    Hell yeah. It's Tell Em Steve Dave, and as long as the boys keep makin' em, I'll keep listening. Hopefully any further audiobooks will be a little more polished and coherent though.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Compared to their regular podcasts? I'd say this is above par for the course.Walt and Q put a lot of effort into these special outings, and it's noticeable. My only complaint would be that while on their ordinary podcasts going off-topic is fine, often even welcome, with set pieces like this I think a little more structure and preparation would go a long way.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing moves me since the accident.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Walt Flanagan

    Anything that featured Walt Flanagan's creepy voicing :)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and then listened to again straight after


    Any additional comments?

    This is a TESD production. That's all you need to know, really. The guys examine some of the old fairy tales in depth, and give the usual TESD spin on those tales, and just make you smile for the duration of the book. This isn't a one listen and done book. You'll come back to this one again and again and again.

    More, please!

    His chocolatey voice (shout out Bry - good luck for Talking Bad)

    It made me laugh a lot, and I was moved to tears when the Goat did that thing with the stop... or whatever that part was.

    "Disappointed"

    I love the podcast and I've bought all the other bonus stuff they've ever done. The last Christmas one is fantastic. This is not. From the description it sounds like maybe they're going to read a fairy tail they've rewritten but that doesn't happen. They seem to just halfheartedly joke about fairy tales for ages then get defensive about what they've done. The only review you need is the last 10 minutes of the book. Spend your free credit on something you might actually enjoy.
