I listen to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks, around 10 hours a week. But I haven’t listened to or read a work of fiction in years. And I haven’t read a work of science / fantasy fiction in, maybe, ever.
But Sidequest had me hooked from the beginning and kept my interest through the end.
The book was very well done, with multiple interesting themes running in the undercurrent. And the artist reading it did a fantastic job.
Definitely worth the time and money.

What made the experience of listening to Sidequest: In Realms Ungoogled the most enjoyable?
The story does not bludgeon the listener with explanation of every fantasy creature. It does not try to go 5 layers deep into how magic works, and lets us know just enough that most people recently introduced into the fantasy genre will understand the context, without having to fully explore each aspect of every bit of lore.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Sidequest: In Realms Ungoogled?
The ending. This is one of the best endings to a story I have seen in a while. It is not a cliff hanger, it explains everything that takes place in the book, while saying little. It leaves on a high note, rather than a cheap cliff hanger or some cop out.
Which character – as performed by Richard Cefalos – was your favorite?
Overall it was the MC. Most of the performances where immersive, but I liked the pilot bear alot more than I probably should.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The ending. It really just tied everything together. It was the summation of the all of the characters growth, without hammering out needlessly, or overexplain what has happened.
Any additional comments?
Get it, it's a great book, that has a great performance. I can't think of the last time a fantasy novel really left me that happy overall days after for the experience of it.
