Publisher's Summary

*My name is Ellis DeAngelo.* I tend to get caught in the midst of trouble quite often. I'm an unlucky guy, but fortunate to have friends to help me out. These aren't the memoirs of a geisha you'll be hearing. And most definitely not some soul-searching discovery that depicts eating, praying, and loving. This is so much better...or worse, depending on your perspective.

*To sum up: I think I'm going to die.* Not of old age, mind you, or in a tragic accident. My boss is trying to kill me. It all starts when I'm....

You don't really think I'm going into all the details now, do you? I mean, come on - look at the size of the space I'm provided here. I couldn't possibly cover everything in such a small area. That's what the audiobook is for. Start listening!

    "This book is hi-larious."

    Well, that was fun!
    It's not super complicated (and not in a bad way. It's not super predictable or anything). Basically, a college kid inadvertently gets involved with the mafia. Shenanigans ensue. Hilarious shenanigans.

    This book is really funny. It's short, fast paced, full of movie, book, and other pop culture references, breaks the fourth wall in a really funny way, and it is absolutely chock full of lols. I definitely know a Chester in real life. I also love how the cover has him wearing socks with sandals. Because of course he would. Of course.

    Jeff Hays is the actual perfect narrator for this. It wasn't just him telling the story, he *became* Ellis. He told Ellis' story very, very well.

    This is a great, fun use of 4 and a half hours. :)

    #lovedit (Yep. That just happened.)

    I listened to audiobooks before they were cool! I read for LibriVox and I adore Stephen Briggs, T.G. Reynolds and Richard Armitage.

    "Entertaining!"

    Three reasons why you need to listen to this book:

    1. It's fun! Three college guys blunder through the events of the story like the Tarot Fool, running into trouble but still managing to get out of it somehow. There's danger, action and a roommate from hell. You can't go wrong with that :D

    2. It's written by Timothy Dalton. No, not the James Bond Timothy Dalton - but this one is also pretty good at what he does. His characters are relatable, and even the most annoying ones have redeemable qualities. I'm looking at you, Chester!

    3. Jeff Hays rocks. I heard him narrating before, and it's a pleasure every time. I believed his Ellis completely.

    Give this a listen, folks. You'll find yourselves thoroughly entertained.



    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. My thanks!

    "Such an entertaining listen!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I connected with this listen right away! It was light-hearted and witty and had the best marriage of story and narrator. I had a constant smile on my face. And those pop references just killed me!!!

    The narrator stole the show! He put the perfect spin on the unflappable main character, Ellis, and with tongue firmly planted in cheek, delivered an incredible sampling of teens, mafia types and even a Black nurse.

    I will look for more from this author and this narrator and count it as a major victory if they've teamed up again.

    On the Hit List
    : Timothy Dalton


    This is ultimately the funniest novel I've listened to today, or right up there in a very long time. What happens when college roommates unintentionally get mixed up with the mob. Each of the guys unique personalities take the story along a twisty path. I want more of these characters.


    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Jeff Hays was fabulous at telling this story.

    "LOL for real. not the fake kind you text."

    I didn't want it to end. The story was told so well. the main character breaks the 4th wall as its told from his perspective and its seamless. I want this made into a movie. its a buddy comedy that will make you literally laugh out loud.
    The reading of the story is great and the characters were done very well. Jeff really made them come to life. I imagined one of the main characters voice, timing and delivery of his idiocy a little different but its still well done. One such part Jeff nailed it for me and i choked on my water because i started laughing. People at work were looking at me weird and thought i was dying.
    Overall this is an amazing listen and, again, I need to see this come to life in a movie.

    Story
    "Jeff Hays keeps you going!"

    If you're a young boy, you'd probably love this book. But I'm not, and I really wanted to like it. I didn't think it was funny at all. It was rather immature and if it wasn't for Jeff Hays' narration it wouldn't have held my attention.

    However, the story holds a good idea and is well-written and well-plotted, but when I look at it as a comedy it fails in my mind and I felt the comedy aspect of the book is overdone.

    Jeff is always impressive in his performance and I love this guy. I did laugh sometimes, but only because Jeff does everything so convincing and fools you into believing there's more than one narrator performing. I can't come up with another narrator who can do this! Jeff Hays is a natural born performer. Great choice! I always grab a book narrated by Jeff and keep my hopes up!

    *This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.

    "funny, short story"

    this is a short fast paced story. its 4 hours long.. ( short for me)
    it is also funny, and will have you laughing out loud in some spots.
    very light hearted. well I think its more in the way its written, not so much the subject matter.

    This is definitely movie stuff here. Light-hearted. Very funny. The narrator absolutely nails it. The characters are hilarious, especially Chester.

    Story
    "A chipmunk on cappuccino is less distracted"

    On the Hit List by Timothy Dalton

    This book had a good concept but lost it’s way in the over A.D.D. rambling of first person narration. I get the concept that the story is told as a collage age guy, but my 2 year old could hold on to a thought longer and be less distracted in a toy store. The story could have been told in about 20 min. the rest of the 4 ½ hour book was side fluff slightly clueless frat boy that repeated himself endless in his own mind.
