"Hilarious and well worth a listen"
I absolutely love the Elvenquest series, and have listened to them multiple times. The script is spot on and the actors really bring the irony and sarcasm to life. Anyone who likes dry humour and fantasy references will like this series.
"What's not to like?"
Yes, definitely, it made me laugh all the way through.

The characters were each unique and each was a different type of comic character
Eeerm, no - I think I would have overdosed if I'd listed to it all at once.
