    "Natural 20 in hilarity"

    This book is just as hilarious as the first two books. If you have not read this series yet, I suggest you read the first book in the series. Additionally, there are a bunch a short stories that this author puts out in the same book-verse. They are separate from the main story line so you can read them to get a feel for the author without worrying about spoilers if you eventually want to read the series. If you don't like poop jokes, walk away now. There is a lot of that kind of humor in all these books. That is not all that can be found inside, however. The story line is great. Fun and coherent. The character development is where Bevan shines, in my opinion. I have read and listened to all the books in the series to date. The narrator for this series is great. He does such a great job maneuvering between the different personalities and races (halfling to half-orc). It is very enjoyable. I highly recommend all of Bevan's books for a good time. He and a bunch of other comedic fantasy writers also have a podcast where they hilariously play pathfinder. It's called Authors and Dragons. Check all of it out.

    "I just can't get enough of this series!"
    What did you love best about Critical Failures III?

    The humor. This book has me literally laughing out loud while listening. The humor is extremely crude, but that may be a plus for some (like me).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Either Tim or Julian. Tim has a quick temper and says out loud the things you say in your head when angry. Julian is the newcomer to Caverns and Creatures and doesn't know all the "rules" but somehow seems to use the tools he has in unique and hilarious ways. "Horse!"


    What about Jonathan Sleep’s performance did you like?

    The voices are all distinct and well done.


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

    yes, but only to tears from laughing.

    "Critical failures 3"

    The most clever thing I've read in years! The characters were really well done in the audible version. My only disappointment is that I cannot get the next book in audible. Very well done thank you very much.

    "KEEP THEM COMING!!"
    If you could sum up Critical Failures III in three words, what would they be?

    Balls, Farts, Hitpoints


    Any additional comments?

    Robert Bevan and Jonathan Sleep do another amazing job. The humor is lowbrow, the scenario is ridiculous, and I love every word.
    This is like junkfood for the brain.

    Audible subscriber with dozens of books listened to. Mostly non-fiction but with a number of epic fiction titles.

    Story
    "Series Went in the Wrong Direction"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I think I might be ashamed to recommend this to a friend. The first book was strongly irreverent, but had enough RPG humor that a casual RPGer like myself found lots of moments hilarious, and the foundation of the story seemed like something the author could really build upon. Book 2 wasn't nearly as funny, and the story degenerated with the introduction of a lot of 2-dimensional characters, with very little character development for the main characters. This book, CF3, focused on the big and interesting plot turn at the end of book 2 but didn't handle the story well after that; bizarre eccentricities were fine in the fictional world, but nobody acted believably in the real world. This book never achieved the amount of clever humor that the first did, instead relying more and more on boring crude jokes and the like. The book became downright stale, and sacrificed an actual conclusion of the plot in favor of a lame cliffhanger, which is a bad move. I don't think I'll listen to any more in this series, if the author intends to write more on it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I think I might continue on in the Queen's Poisoner series, until the next NPCs book by Drew Hayes comes out at least. NPCs and its sequel were more up my alley, especially considering the second and third books of this series.


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

    I have some narrators that I really like, and I think Jonathan Sleep did a very good job. Not the best performance I've ever heard, but certainly a very good one, with consistent, amusing voices.


    Did Critical Failures III inspire you to do anything?

    It inspires me to avoid reading other Robert Bevan books.

    "Wow"

    The ending had me gasping for air and in tears from laughter! I absolutely adore this series. I bought book four, and I plan to go back and buy the others in book form as well. But hearing the different characters being voiced through Audible really brought them to life for me! Love it!

    "Amazingly funny and Amazingly recorded"
    Where does Critical Failures III rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The series is really high up in my list.One of my favourite series and one I keep coming back to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Always Cooper. Always.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Sleep – was your favourite?

    Cooper.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh. Laugh so hard I've nearly died a few times. Mainly because I listen to audiobooks while commuting to work and this series has on more than one occasion brought uncontrollable fits of laughter which is seriously dangerous when driving.

    Worth it though.


    Any additional comments?

    Read them all. They make my work day better by listening to them on the drive in.
