Publisher's Summary

Have you ever seen a planet invaded by rampaging space mutants from another dimension or Nazi dinosaurs from the future?

Don't let this happen to you!

Rifts happen, so you should be ready when universes collide. A policy with Stranger & Stranger can cover all of your interdimensional insurance needs. Rated "Number One in Customer Satisfaction" for three years running, no claim is too big or too weird for Tom Stranger to handle.

But now Tom faces his greatest challenge yet. Despite being assigned the wrong - and woefully inadequate - intern, Tom must still provide quality customer service to multiple alternate Earths, all while battling tentacle monsters, legions of the damned, an evil call center in Nebraska, and his archnemesis, Jeff Conundrum. Armed with his Combat Wombat and a sense of fair play, can Tom survive? And will Jimmy the Intern ever discover his inner insurance agent?

It's time to kick ass and adjust claims.

Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) performs Larry Correia's madcap interdimensional tale of underwriting and space travel, where the only thing scarier than tentacle monsters is a high deductible.

Unintelligent, Propagandist, Sexist, and Terrible

I've been a member of audible for over 15 years, and I was suggested this book by their algorithm. After listening to it I am truly aghast that audible would push forward such terrible propagandist, lowbrow, unintelligent drivel. The author of this novel is a member of a sexist, dishonest, politically motivated group called The Sad Puppies which manipulated venerable science fiction awards institutions to give themselves undue nominations and prizes against the will of Science Fiction community. They, and their authors group, have been banned from all such competition due to their theft of recognition from real authors within the genera. I'm rather disturbed that Audible promotes this hate and bigotry in their forum.

This book is entirely off the wall. It almost makes no sense at all but it is funny as hell and the Adam's performance also helps make the book.

This was laugh out loud funny

I never would have bought this book but it was free through audible for the month I downloaded it. I am glad it was because it was FUNNY!. I listened to it while I was in between audible purchases and I am so glad I did. I was laughing out loud. I am looking forward to more of the same.

Unnecessary political jabs

The first time I was like "did he really just say that?" and the second time I was like "this seems like a fine time to move on to something better." Overall, this isn't bad. Overall, it isn't good either. Total fluff piece that takes time to protest the fact that we only got one season of Firefly. Quite a few laugh out loud moments. Straightforward, predictable and without any real tension or suspense, it's good popcorn listen if you can get past the author's political cheap shots. But, I can't, so moving on. According to other reviews, if I'd kept listening I'd have a far more negative review. Sounds like it gets much worse. (P.S. Very short for the price.)

Who gave Sean Hannity a pop culture encyclopedia?

Garbage right wing ideology and pop culture references makeup the terrible plot of this story.

Weirdly obsessed with gender studies

This book was really about taking crap on gender studies. Which is kind of a weird thing to be so negatively obsessed with. Don't think this guy ever actually took a gender studies class. Maybe he would have learned something. I couldn't even get through it, it was so whiny. I would skip this title, the series it probably just as bad.

Superb Laugh Out Loud High-Speed, Utter Absurdity!

This one does exactly what it says on the tin, if you like the sound of the publisher’s blurb you are going to love it. Inter-space hi jinks and an insurance agent super hero. The humour is constant. The opening scenes had me laughing from the get go and the laughter continued with impressively high frequency for the whole two hours.

If you get this kind of humour then it’s great fun and Master Correia drags in many well-known personalities and even finds time to poke fun at himself in a variety of ways. One person that definitely gets the humour is Adam Baldwin who gives it the full Scooby Doo and no mistake!

Nothing is sacred, most of Europe and Asia is gone within the first ten minutes and everyone from John Wayne to a Balrog gets dragged in during this all-too-brief adventure. The Balrog’s “predicament” I found seriously funny along with the help system on the Combat Wombat!

On top of all that it’s free, at least for now! What can possibly go wrong? If you want a laugh just get it. The only people I wouldn’t recommend this to are call centre managers . . .

Brilliant and Witty with brain on or off :)

So having listened to some pretty heavy sci-fi recently i really needed someone lighter to listen to and this appeared so i though i would give it a try. I was hooked from the start. Its very very very funny on a lot of levels and you really dont need to plug your brain in to listen. Not that its not clever.

I would recommend this for anyone who likes things likes things like Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy or Any of the Jim Butcher books.

This is the best thing ever created...

Probably the best humor piece i've ever listened to!!! This makes me an instant fan of both Larry Correia and Adam Baldwin! No spoilers, just go listen to it right away. It's both worth your credit, and hard earned Money! Customer Satisfaction rating of: 10/10.

Review by sample. Better than the sample.

Its hard to have a fun dumb and witty comedy. This does it. Dumb is not an insult. I love dumb comedy. I like witty comedy. Ignore my story rating. This is not a story driven book. Go for James Clavell if that's your thing.

Overall, more than adequate

Loved the humor, but the story/plot lost my interest for a bit in the middle. Did draw me back with referencing MHI, fans and concealed weapons.

The story is a bit infantile, but still fun the way through. Adam Baldwin's performance is the real highlight, and worth the 2 hours. He really brings the story to life...every multiverse!!
