Publisher's Summary

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.

Natural 20 in hilarity

This book is just as hilarious as the first two books. If you have not read this series yet, I suggest you read the first book in the series. Additionally, there are a bunch a short stories that this author puts out in the same book-verse. They are separate from the main story line so you can read them to get a feel for the author without worrying about spoilers if you eventually want to read the series. If you don't like poop jokes, walk away now. There is a lot of that kind of humor in all these books. That is not all that can be found inside, however. The story line is great. Fun and coherent. The character development is where Bevan shines, in my opinion. I have read and listened to all the books in the series to date. The narrator for this series is great. He does such a great job maneuvering between the different personalities and races (halfling to half-orc). It is very enjoyable. I highly recommend all of Bevan's books for a good time. He and a bunch of other comedic fantasy writers also have a podcast where they hilariously play pathfinder. It's called Authors and Dragons. Check all of it out.

I just can't get enough of this series!

What did you love best about Critical Failures III?

The humor. This book has me literally laughing out loud while listening. The humor is extremely crude, but that may be a plus for some (like me).

Who was your favorite character and why?

Either Tim or Julian. Tim has a quick temper and says out loud the things you say in your head when angry. Julian is the newcomer to Caverns and Creatures and doesn't know all the "rules" but somehow seems to use the tools he has in unique and hilarious ways. "Horse!"

What about Jonathan Sleep’s performance did you like?

The voices are all distinct and well done.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

yes, but only to tears from laughing.

Critical failures 3

The most clever thing I've read in years! The characters were really well done in the audible version. My only disappointment is that I cannot get the next book in audible. Very well done thank you very much.

Can't get enough

Really funny, perfectly narrated litRPG romp. Although I own the ebooks, Jonathan Sleep is so perfect with his character voices and deadpan delivery of the humor that the audiobooks are just the perfect format. This series is absolutely entertaining with several LOL moments that I am forced to binge listen to these stories.

KEEP THEM COMING!!

If you could sum up Critical Failures III in three words, what would they be?

Balls, Farts, Hitpoints

Any additional comments?

Robert Bevan and Jonathan Sleep do another amazing job. The humor is lowbrow, the scenario is ridiculous, and I love every word.<br/>This is like junkfood for the brain.

no character development

I kept expecting the characters to mature as reality set in, they didn't. there are only so many life threatening situations interrupted by pants shitting, getting distracted by cleavage, or someone deciding to take their 20th nap if the day before I lose interest.

The magic has died

Loved the first book, but at this point the constant shit / vomit / boner jokes are just on repeat like the records scratched. The overarching story is still pretty decent but not enough to warrant the 4th. ( or this one.)

Add to that is the narrator who's "must scream every line in shrill halfling accent!!!!" Has been an annoyance of mine since The first book. I will say Though his pacing and accents are really good. I just wish not every single sentence had to be shouted at the top of his Lungs.

Fantasy Invades the Mundane

To anyone who hasn't listened to the first two installments of this series--check those out first. Critical Failures III is awesome, and would be enjoyable enough on its own, but is I think much richer (and funnier!) if the reader is familiar with what has come before.

This volume takes up right where CF2 left off, with the gang being transported back to Mississippi, but not returned to their original bodies. Robert Bevan does a great job of imagining what fantasy characters would experience in the "real" world, and the many advantages and disadvantages they face.

Several new characters are introduced into the fold, as in Volume 2, but this time the characters are from our world. It's a testament to Bevan's skill as a writer that he manages to make two of these new characters who are fairly shady (one downright despicable) likeable...to a point.

Bevin's humor hasn't lost its edge in this book, nor is it any more grown-up. Funny from start to finish.

Johnathan Sleep's narration is outstanding and a highlight of the production.

The comedy continues

Another brilliantly hilarious read! These stories get better and better. You must read these books, you will not be disappointed (unless you have a low charisma score)

Amazingly funny and Amazingly recorded

Where does Critical Failures III rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The series is really high up in my list.One of my favourite series and one I keep coming back to.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Always Cooper. Always.

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

Cooper.

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

Laugh. Laugh so hard I've nearly died a few times. Mainly because I listen to audiobooks while commuting to work and this series has on more than one occasion brought uncontrollable fits of laughter which is seriously dangerous when driving. <br/><br/>Worth it though.

Any additional comments?

Read them all. They make my work day better by listening to them on the drive in.
