Excellent Series

Listened to this pack in two sessions. The first two then most of three. I live the cadence for sponge reason and while the story is far fetched, I feel like it's possible even plausible given the circumstances. the narrator is mighty good at voice acting, when I first started listening I checked to be sure it had only one. I thought that Nicki was possibly voiced by a woman. Granted I was driving on the highway so it was not without a fair amount of background noise, but now that I am finished I am sad that there isn't more to listen to. I plan to buy the kindle editions shortly. I wish that people were not like these characters in real life, I think perhaps the world would be a better place.

snag fart

I tried , i can get into some silly humor and over look alot, but geez. He comes home to find a Alien working on a space ship in his garage and immediately acts like no big deal, nothin strange , they are old buddies. They get parts to fix the ship like mufflers, and antifreeze from auto parts stores, and it runs on isopropyl . But the wrost part is the old country slag the author tries to use , like their favorite saying "snag fart" . Couldn't make it past 30 min, sorry!.

Delightful!

I wasn't sure what to expect from the description, but it sounded intriguing so I thought I'd take a swing at this publisher's pack since I was getting 3 books for 1 credit. I'm glad I did. If you like hard-core SF with lots of action this probably won't suit you -- it's more like the SF version of a "cozy" mystery. I really enjoyed it. The characters are likeable, the story is believable once you accept the premise, and the narrator is perfect. Jerry Boyd describes himself as a house husband and other things, but doesn't mention writing. It's OK, Jerry -- you can call yourself a talented writer. Come on, Audible, there are 7 more books in the series! Get Chris Ciulla in the booth STAT!

warm and adventurous fun

I can't hardly put it down. These are the kind of people everyone wishes they knew. I have found this series to be a welcome break from reality. And I enjoy the continued discoveries about alien life with shenanigans aplenty.

Lake Wobegon with aliens

Funny at first but wears thin after hours of easily fixed problems. Alien lady needs roadside assistance. Breaks down on Earth and a guy with diesel experience can fix it. Bend a pipe and Bobs your uncle. Who knew spaceships were so easy to fix. Or that aliens were just nice people that you want to take home to your mama for a wife.

Not only can he fix said spaceship but he sets up a alien spaceship Repair Depot. Makes lots of money but his neighbors don't ask where it came from or what he's going to do with that monster repair shop in the woods. Orders tons of supplies but nobody notices delivery trucks driving in the woods! Makes friends with the cops so they don't care.

Everybody that is let into the secret is ok with it and keeps their mouths shut. Everybody in this quaint little Southern town is friendly. Nobody gets jealous of his sudden wealth or mysterious wife.

Everything is hunky dory, every problem solved by Southern charm swearing and barbecues. Which means it is boring. Easy listening for background background noise.

Worst: Audible won't let me return this turkey.

Just can't Stop listening!

Wow! Really held my attention and pure joy to listen to. Just had to buy the kindle version books 4 - 10 but can't wait to have them in audiobook format!

I'm hooked

wasn't sure about this one but I gave it a shot and I'm very glad I did. the narrator takes some getting used to but he fits the story well. the jokes get a bit repetitive but the storyline is very entertaining. I'm going straight into the second publisher's pack now.

series gets better after book 1

if you can make it through book 1 and its excessive use of the made up swear word snag fart the rest of the series is much better book 1 says it like 300 times book 2 around 20 and after that its just every once in a while. usualy around once or twice a book.

the rest of the book is all space aliens and hijinks galore.

Rednecks and aliens, really fun.

look after almost 30 hours of a serious, military, espionage type space opera with almost zero comic relief, I had to have a break. So I thought I'd give this a try.
it was just what the doctor ordered. Good ol country folk get introduced to some almost human aliens. Do a bunch of cool stuff, help a bunch of nice people and give hell to the bad guys in an easy going down home manner.
no frustrating evil guys who always seem to outsmart the good guys or fav characters getting blown out of existence. easy listening, fun and I don't feel like the entire human race needs a shower after reading it
so sit back and enjoy country folks solve problems with good old common sense with polite honorable behavior. man I'm gonna go thru the whole series and try anything else this guy wrote.
it's light hearted and entertaining.

No skill in storytelling

Although this is my type of genre I had to give up on this because it's just poorly written. The story jumps along with no real reason for anything happening, no development whatsoever. It just clunks through actions and dialogue like a rough first draft. And the supposed banter between characters is awfully forced, clichéd and unfunny. Even though it was included free I still feel ripped off.

Absolutely Awesome Audio

Love the Audio but was a bit disappointed toward the end, because it cut short of the end, of the actual book. It may have been because of my download I'm not sure. Looking forward to the rest of the series on audio thanks Jerry and Chris.
