Funny... but not to me.

It tries to be funny but sexual harassment and being gay are just not funny to me. I recognize that "these are the jokes" but I have no urge to laugh... it is simply banal. Too bad because I want to like the charactures and find out what happens to them but then they mention the hero's name... Har, Don. Suddenly I just don't care.

It's like Kevin Smith if he wrote a sci-fi series

I was looking for something to listen to that was funny and not too deep. This checked all the marks. To top it off , it is a ton of hours of listening pleasure for only one credit!

These stories are about what equates to a bunch of 'red shirts' (Red shirts were the cannon fodder in the Star Trek series) assigned to an old, crappy space ship and sent out on a (unknown to them) suicide mission.

These books are not for anyone looking for serious sci-fi space stories, but for those looking for something fun to listen too and are cool with dick jokes and innuendo.

Mindless and lame humor

This book is completely awful. The humor is childish and largely based upon sexist and homophobic humor. There is no real story underlying this trash.

Possibly the largest waste of my time ever.

This series is complete drivel. It’s sexist, homophobic, and complete crap. Spend your money elsewhere if you know what’s good for you.

Probably very funny for a teenage boy - but not me

I love Science Fiction and Comedy. But this kind of comedy is not it. If I was a teenage boy it would be funny. I'm not. It isn't.

The narration was okay.

Returning this. Wish I hadn't eaten up my internet GBs downloading this.

Non Stop Laughter

Highly recommend grabbing this Platoon F, Big Ass Bundle. I had read the books awhile ago, and decided to try the Audible version. I loved it, hilarious, snorting in laughter while the narrator read aloud. This is sci-fi comedy at it's best.

If there is one thing I TRULY HATE....

...it's when someone is trying to promote a new or recent book series by saying "if you liked "X" you'll LOVE THIS 'good old whatever it is'.

Then I buy it, excited for a new and delicious read

And it sucks big ol donkey d***s.

This PROMISED to be every dodgy, off colour, sleazy thing wrapped into one hilarious Platoon F'ing ride, so on Friday night at about 9:30 pm, I used my coveted subscription credit (as opposed to space jockey credits) to buy the Big Ass Bundle 3 on audio (which has 9 books) because I figured that if I was going to waste a credit on some risque stuff, I might as well get as much as I could for that one credit.

The best time I have for listening to books is while I'm working because I can listen to a book in just a few days that would take me at least a week to read from hard copy, and I have many books that lost my interest right from the first chapter when they weren't even close to what they promised.

THIS IS **NOT** ONE OF THOSE BOOKS!!!!

I started listening on Saturday while fixing breakfast and my daughter came in several times asking what I was laughing at. I explained. Her response?

😳

Finally, truth in advertising and there truly is no better person to read a book than the person who wrote it.

Yes, there are many narrators that are amazing and I would listen to them read the phone book; and there are also many narrators who are so deadpan that I struggle to keep interested even if the book in question is one that I dearly love and have read the hard copy until the pages are falling out. Having the author reading his or her own work has the advantage that when you have a particular character thay thomething, you KNOW how they thpeak.... er, speak... you KNOW what inflection you meant when you wrote that line, and how the other characters react to what they thaid...

Even though I didn't have a lot of available time over the weekend to "read" I am already on book 3 (well, 4 now...) and am having to be careful listening at work because people give me funny looks but I guess it's no different than the looks that Rear Admiral (😂🤣) Parfait is giving anyone who is breathing and within arm's reach of him

THIS SERIES IS AMAZING!!!!!

I am so glad I took the chance on using that credit....
I will definitely be checking out his other series as well

Side splitting fun

This is one of those great finds that once you start listening to you can't seem to stop. Don't let the long listening time scare you. By the end of the book you'll be asking for another chapter. So, do yourself a favor and spend the credit to enjoy a great series.

constant phalic references and ott cheesy

literally left me feeling dirty and grossed out, i couldnt get past the first ten minutes. gratuitous 'lets hook up' gay references that didnt take the story anywhere except to the authors desire to focus om the dirty old man vibe. really killed the book before the story had a.chance to start. but i cant imagine the remainder is going to be much better, the plot was SO shallow and contrived there really didnt seem like there was much hope. when the charachters name is harr, don.... its garunteed to be little more than a poorly executed literary dickfest that should have stayed in the world of slash fanfiction.

Great story/performance not for the PC brigade

Ok first off, if you're a "right-on", "politically correct" person ... just skip this because the stereotypes will annoy you. If you take one look at a "Carry On" film and start writing angry letters ... it's not for you. However, if you're willing to see how the characters develop and the stereotypes become real and are dealt with with humour and respect, then great.

Now we have that out of the way, this is a great series with many genuine laugh out loud moments. The narrator is fantastic with wonderful characterizations and voices which make it easy to tell which character is speaking. Honestly, one of the best that I've heard.

I don't want to talk much about the story and ruin it, but whilst you might think that it starts out as a cliche, the twists and turns, soon turn it into something much more. The series develops very well (I'm on Book Eight right now) and never feels like it's dragging. The only slow moment is the story-recap near the start of each book but that's only noticable because I'm listening to one book after the other. It isn't that instrusive.

I will be looking out for other books by these authors and definitely by books read by this narrator.

Honestly, you can't spend your credits in a better way than this but do expect some off-colour jokes and characters. They will flesh out (as Jensen or Parfait would say) but until then you might be thinking "ugh". Don't. It's absolutely worth listening to this series unless you are really an OTT PC person.

For the record, I'm female. And pushing 50.

jouvenile humor at times but still quite funny with brilliant narration and long enough to be excellent value for one credit

Pissed my pants

Loved it. Stories are so random and f#@kd up. Lovable characters especially GEEZER (Sorry didn't spell his name right). Very funny, the humor is dry clever and the right amount of ridiculous. Narration is excelent.

Great Narration

Hmm, I can say I enjoyed this, a lot, despite the stories flagging at time’s mainly due to the author seeming failure to spot when he should stop labouring a point. The humour is there and while I never laughed out loud I was either smiling or just appreciating the strangeness of the stories, very enjoyable if not sparkling.

The Bawdiness of the book mainly stems from one character and his, explained, focus on sex. It’s bawdy rather than explicit form just one facet of the narrative and is not going to offend if you have ever come across schoolboy humour, although this is accomplished schoolboy humour.

The narrator is fantastic and gives voices to all the characters that are, by and large, distinguishable and often wonderfully exaggerated. At the end of the book there are a small number of outtakes where the author just loses it, bursting into a fit of laughter, and I can understand how delivering those lines with those voices while keeping a straight would be a difficilt task. W well done sir!

Fantastic fun. Crying with laughter

I listened to the entire Platoon F series on audible during my commutes. I’d already experienced the Ononokin line so had high hopes. Expectations were surpassed. Someone commented saying it and I agree it’s Carry On up the Red Dwarf. My type of humour. If you’re one to find offence at every little thing in life like a snowflake then don’t get this. If you don’t have a stick up your butt and have sense of humour then this is for you. Love it
