What made the experience of listening to 4d6 the most enjoyable?

I have yet to complete this listen, but so far Bevan delivers! J.Sleep's voices flesh out Bevan's characters perfectly! So, I guess it is a team effort that I enjoy the most. These two have a great thing going! Bevan's humor and J. Sleep's voices, one of the top 3 combos in my opinion. And ya know what, I can't think of any two I'd rate better. (Although Steve Campbell / Liam Owen or Paul Kemp / Nick Podehl are damn close)

What other book might you compare 4d6 to and why?

Just finished Kings of the Wyld (Nicholas Eames / Jeff Harding, really great listen!) which was close because of a fantasy setting, some Bevanesque language and some very good humor. But my bottom line is I have yet to find anything quite like the CF series.

Any additional comments?

Lets just say I love Correia's MHI series and downloaded Siege yesterday.
I dove into 4d6 right away instead. Sorry Larry but Owen and company will have to wait.

What did you love best about 3d6?

The concept and execution of "real world" characters thrown into their game world as their, well, characters. The blending / interactions of characters continues to shine as the series progresses. Each has personalities most of us have encountered (C'mon, who hasn't known someone Cooperish?) and are easily identifiable with.

What was one of the most memorable moments of 3d6?

Tim, Dwarf, Wrist. You'll know it when you hear / read it.

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

You mean I have to choose? Screw that! He nails them all (are we still doing "phrasing"?)

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

Tears, of laughter that is. Listen with caution if driving. May be hazardous. Well written situations and phenomenal deliveries do not fall short!

Any additional comments?

Buy this book. Then buy the rest of the series if you for some unknown reason haven't already. You can thank me later.

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.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Hell yeah! Because it (the whole series) is a freaking blast! Really time well spent! Well, time hilariously spent. Great characters, story and narration!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Low, almost nonexistent kinda low, charisma. I need not say more.

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

Urine. Well, almost. I've almost pissed myself from laughter so freaking many times I am considering doubling up my Critical purchases with a box of depends.
These two (Bevan /Sleep) make a great pairing (NOT phrasing, I'm talking writer / narrator relationship......although I don't personally know either party...so..)

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

Yes and no. Yes because of the enjoyment factor and no because, like a flagon of stone piss, you want to savor it and make it last!

Any additional comments?

If you are looking for high brow intellectual thought provoking writing, go elsewhere.
If you are looking for side splitting humor, f-d up adventures and more bodily excretions than your above average attended (really big, and I mean BIG) state fair on chili cook off night this is for you. Try it, you'll like it!
Also, thank you to Mr Bevan and Mr Sleep! This series is as enjoyable as they come and all parts are well worth re-re-re listening!

Bubba's back, and he's dealing with his brother, Jason, once and for all! This is the collected edition of Bubba the Monster Hunter Season 2, collecting everything since Scattered, Smothered & Chunked. Also included: a special preview of Raising Hell, a new novella from John G. Hartness and White Lightnin', a Beauregard the Monster Hunter short story!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Meh. This story had a few good moments but for the most part was rehashing tag lines. (Bubba compares situations to past embellished scenes with "You do not want to know how I know what xxxx is like.) Simple endings to situations (Jason, Mom). I had hopes for more.

Would you ever listen to anything by John G. Hartness again?

Maybe.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Solo?

Andrew McFerrin. His work of the first book was, to me, a more enjoyable rendition of the characters. Skeeter sounded like a Skeeter should etc.
I had to force myself to finish this listen. And in the end, I could have stopped anytime. Don't feel that I would have missed much.

Any additional comments?

Many parallels to MHI, yet pales in comparison. I'll take a Correia yarn over this series anytime.
