Publisher's Summary

*My name is Ellis DeAngelo.* I tend to get caught in the midst of trouble quite often. I'm an unlucky guy, but fortunate to have friends to help me out. These aren't the memoirs of a geisha you'll be hearing. And most definitely not some soul-searching discovery that depicts eating, praying, and loving. This is so much better...or worse, depending on your perspective.

*To sum up: I think I'm going to die.* Not of old age, mind you, or in a tragic accident. My boss is trying to kill me. It all starts when I'm....

You don't really think I'm going into all the details now, do you? I mean, come on - look at the size of the space I'm provided here. I couldn't possibly cover everything in such a small area. That's what the audiobook is for. Start listening!

    "This book is hi-larious."

    Well, that was fun!
    It's not super complicated (and not in a bad way. It's not super predictable or anything). Basically, a college kid inadvertently gets involved with the mafia. Shenanigans ensue. Hilarious shenanigans.

    This book is really funny. It's short, fast paced, full of movie, book, and other pop culture references, breaks the fourth wall in a really funny way, and it is absolutely chock full of lols. I definitely know a Chester in real life. I also love how the cover has him wearing socks with sandals. Because of course he would. Of course.

    Jeff Hays is the actual perfect narrator for this. It wasn't just him telling the story, he *became* Ellis. He told Ellis' story very, very well.

    This is a great, fun use of 4 and a half hours. :)

    #lovedit (Yep. That just happened.)

    Story
    "Entertaining!"

    Three reasons why you need to listen to this book:

    1. It's fun! Three college guys blunder through the events of the story like the Tarot Fool, running into trouble but still managing to get out of it somehow. There's danger, action and a roommate from hell. You can't go wrong with that :D

    2. It's written by Timothy Dalton. No, not the James Bond Timothy Dalton - but this one is also pretty good at what he does. His characters are relatable, and even the most annoying ones have redeemable qualities. I'm looking at you, Chester!

    3. Jeff Hays rocks. I heard him narrating before, and it's a pleasure every time. I believed his Ellis completely.

    Give this a listen, folks. You'll find yourselves thoroughly entertained.



    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. My thanks!

    Story
    "LOL for real. not the fake kind you text."

    I didn't want it to end. The story was told so well. the main character breaks the 4th wall as its told from his perspective and its seamless. I want this made into a movie. its a buddy comedy that will make you literally laugh out loud.
    The reading of the story is great and the characters were done very well. Jeff really made them come to life. I imagined one of the main characters voice, timing and delivery of his idiocy a little different but its still well done. One such part Jeff nailed it for me and i choked on my water because i started laughing. People at work were looking at me weird and thought i was dying.
    Overall this is an amazing listen and, again, I need to see this come to life in a movie.

    "Such an entertaining listen!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I connected with this listen right away! It was light-hearted and witty and had the best marriage of story and narrator. I had a constant smile on my face. And those pop references just killed me!!!

    The narrator stole the show! He put the perfect spin on the unflappable main character, Ellis, and with tongue firmly planted in cheek, delivered an incredible sampling of teens, mafia types and even a Black nurse.

    I will look for more from this author and this narrator and count it as a major victory if they've teamed up again.

    On the Hit List
    : Timothy Dalton


    This is ultimately the funniest novel I've listened to today, or right up there in a very long time. What happens when college roommates unintentionally get mixed up with the mob. Each of the guys unique personalities take the story along a twisty path. I want more of these characters.


    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Jeff Hays was fabulous at telling this story.

    Really liked this one. I deliver newspapers so to find a story that keeps me interested is great and this one did. "This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."

    "Great Audiobook for Quick Laughs"
    Where does On the Hit List rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    For easy listening comedy book this would definitely be in the top 10 books I have listened too. The book has a great performance and the voice really brings you into the story.


    What other book might you compare On the Hit List to and why?

    I can't I have not listened to a book like this before. I am new to audiobooks.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Definitely when they go on the hunt for the crooked cop. Super funny!


    If you could take any character from On the Hit List out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Definitely the main character, he seems funny enough to keep me entertained but not too stupid to make me annoyed.


    Any additional comments?

    "Funny and entertaining story of an accidental drug"

    Ellis is a typical university student. Trying to pass classes and makes ends meet, he gets a job at a local late night food joint to pay the bills. However his simple job of making and delivery food gets him in a lot of trouble when he finds he's not delivery food but illegal drugs.

    He tries to get himself out, but his idiot friends only (accidentally) get him in deeper. And then people start dying around him.

    Dalton crafts an interesting, funny and suspense filled thriller-comedy. He uses anachronistic statements wonderfully to build the mystery and suspense ("But I didn't find this out for another two days"). The story is not complicated, but isn't predictable. Its fast, funny and a enjoyable quick read.

    I picked this book up without knowing who the narrator was, because the blurb caught my interest. And then I saw the narrator is Jeff Hays, who I really enjoy. Bonus! As always Hays does good work. Crisp, clear and well paced, filled with emotion and character voices. A pleasure to listen to.

    "FUN BOOK"

    Narrator was fun, book was too. Interesting premise and written with an 'tongue in cheek' manner and was provided by book affiliation for an honest review. Light hearted and easy read with some decent character building and some twists along the way
