Publisher's Summary

For a millennia, they sat waiting, traveling through the dark, empty, cold vacuum of space, plotting our demise. Every continuity was planned in detail. They were ready to wipe out our armies, crush any resistance, and sweep aside any warriors. Mankind’s fate was sealed. It was only ever just a matter of time. What they had not planned for - what they are not ready for - is Karen! Any likeness between Karen and any real persons alive or dead is purely inevitable.

Good stoty

Karen is hilarious. This is a great story. My only problem with this is the narrator. This story would much better with a difference narrator. The narrator has just one voice, where other narrators use different voices for different characters. Even with this problem this is a good story and a great laugh.

Fantastic!

This book was so much fun to read! I normally don’t have the attention span for anything except thrillers, but this book kept my attention the whole time! Great author and great characters!

Bonkers

Warning : This audiobook is not suitable for minors, adults of a nervous disposition or anyone called Karen

Once again Simon Carr delivers a madcap, lunacy filled tale from the deep recesses of his dark creative mind.

Karen is a another laugh-out-loud episode in the Apocalyse Blockers series and is filled with hilarious dialog from start to finish

If you're not a fan of British humour or excessive expletives then leave this one on the shelf, otherwise fill your boots and then check out the rest of the books in the series.

Why doesn't this have 5 stars? The use of an American narrator for a book that is very British in tone. But's that's just my opinion being British myself

Yes that Karen!

Karen is looking for a manager, the only problem is she was looking for one on a spaceship in the middle of space with aliens who want to take over the world. Unfortunately for them they put their portal right and Karen’s front garden and after a drunken night she inadvertently went through it. She is the only thing between awesome and aliens… God help us all! I read this book on Kindle and now I have listen to it on audible and I must say a rather the Kindle version. Karen lives in Council housing somewhere in Britain and so I was expecting to hear a British accent and was disappointed when the narrator sounded American. I thought you did an OK job but sounded stilted and parts of a reading. I still love Simon cars books and would listen to them if the Cookie Monster read them, but having said that I just wish he would get British narrators, Because most of these books or set in Britain. I highly recommend this book it is still funny and laugh out loud good time!
