Do NOT listen to this audiobook while driving or at least don't listen to it while driving at high speeds, because at various points of the story are moments that are so funny that you will nearly pass out from laughter. I've had a few close calls myself and I was lucky enough to narrowly avoid losing consciousness and hitting anything or wandering off the road, but others might not be so fortunate.
P.S. in the event you do not need my warning and you do end up getting in a car accident as a result, I would kindly ask that you do not sue Mr. Croshaw. He does good work.

Every time I listen to one of Yahtzee's books I prepare to be embarrassed in public. I can't count how many times a snort, giggle, or outright guffaw has slipped out in public because one of his books is on in my headphones. The plots are clever, the dialogue is hilarious, and Croshaw narrates them perfectly.

Quite possibly my favourite novel from Yahtzee yet, and very animately performed. Listeners familiar with his games will find some nice references in here but knowing them isn’t essential. I will say that if your curious about a certain event mentioned in the novel then you should play “The consuming shadow” to get some back ground on the world the book takes place in.
Without getting into too much detail the Ending was a bit mysterious, which normally would be fine except i’m aware of the author’s tendency to not make sequels, so if this is going to be another stand alone story there will be a few questions left un-answered but it by no means spoils an excellent story, well worth your time and money!

A unique take of the supernatural genre, this is witty, insightful and very funny as well. A clever satire of political correctness but done in a thoughtful way. Some of the scenes in this book are comic gold, I have to say. I also enjoyed the fact that it was not just funny but had alongside it a compeling plot with genuinely surprising plot twists, which is a bonus for these types of novels in the genre which sometimes relay too much on humour and not enough on a riveting plot.
The audio version has extra delights, with a brillant, amusing performance with added sound effects that I think add to the enjoyment of the experience.

This is ALMOST as good as Mogworld, in my opinion the best of his novels. Incredibly funny, interesting, and mysterious. I await the sequel.

I didn't look up or listen to any preview on this book and at first did not know what to expect. Yahtzee delivered this story impeccably and took me on an adventure that I loved. Looking forward to book two!
