Going back home was not exactly what Tim and the C&C gang expected. Trouble continues to follow them back to Gulf Coast Mississippi. Trouble...and a gnome...and an undead midget.

I listen to many audiobooks and review the ones I find most notable.
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.
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).
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!"
The voices are all distinct and well done.
yes, but only to tears from laughing.
When the T-rex is loose in the city? Thats Cooper in this book. Buy this book of you have read the last two. Buy the series if you haven't!
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.
Balls, Farts, Hitpoints
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.
I am an avid lover of books and stories. Audible has provided a great outlet for me to read when otherwise I couldn't. I love dogs.
No. The writing in this series has always been in need of a bit of edit but the absolute solidity of the story telling always tipped the scales. In this book the attempt to make pedophilia funny harkened back to the unfunny "chester the molester" gags in Hustler magazine and suddenly all of the humor fell flat.
No, see previous response.
Only if the book itself interested me. He does great voices but his inflection is poor in straight dialogue.
Not one that I would go see.
Write the series but never bring up pedophilia in a humorous context. It is not.
Audible subscriber with dozens of books listened to. Mostly non-fiction but with a number of epic fiction titles.
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.
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.
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.
It inspires me to avoid reading other Robert Bevan books.
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!
"I've raced through this... bring on the next one!"
Absolutely loved this next book, really worth listening to. Well produced, great narration! You must listen to this!
"The comedy continues"
Another brilliantly hilarious read! These stories get better and better. You must read these books, you will not be disappointed (unless you have a low charisma score)
Listening while partaking in any activity will make you look like an Idiot as you laugh too hard!
"Amazingly funny and Amazingly recorded"
The series is really high up in my list.One of my favourite series and one I keep coming back to.
Always Cooper. Always.
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.
Read them all. They make my work day better by listening to them on the drive in.
