A wonderfully funny radio program... Imagine if you took Monty Python, Lord of the Rings, and Red Dwarf and squished it all together... Bingo, this is it... Delightful bad punning and innuendo, not to mention the superb digs at pop culture and current events... Fabulous performances throughout... Absolutely worth the credit and you're welcome...

Far better than I expected! A masterpiece of comedic gold! My wife and I highly recommend ElvenQuest.

I listened to a random episode of Elven Quest on radio 4 extra a while ago, and I remember thinking that it might be worth buying a whole series to get the full experience. Which is why I was so pleased to find this bumper audiobook that includes all 4 series!
On the plus side, you don't need to be a fan of Dungeons and Dragons to enjoy this programme as most of the jokes are based on relationships, gender stereotypes and a typically English changing-room humour. The relationship between Lord Darkness and his hideous sidekick Kreech is particularly well-imagined, and involves some of the funniest moments.
On the down side, most of the jokes are so familiar and well-worn that they're not particularly funny, just mildly amusing, and some of the performances feel a bit lacklustre.
In general, it never really lived up to my expectations and I came away feeling that if the writing had been a bit tighter, then this could have been an extremely funny and successful series. I think I was spoilt by listening to the hilariously funny, anarchic and surreal Bleak Expectations before I moved onto Elven Quest. If you're looking for a good laugh from an audiobook then I suggest you try that instead.
Having said all that, I was pleasantly surprised that this audiobook includes all 4 series in one go. Not only does it make it a lot easier to listen to, as you don't have to keep chopping and changing between files, but it's also a heck of a lot cheaper!

Love this story. Just my sort of humour. If you like Terry Pratchett or Blackadder or Yonderland, you may like to try this too.
