Publisher's Summary

Paul Armstead is your average American senior citizen and electrical engineer. He's 61 years old, unremarkably unattractive, and a self-proclaimed science fiction nut. He's lived the American dream in drab, typical fashion without a single noteworthy event in his rather mundane life.
So how does he end up fleeing from one end of the world to the other, dodging government dragnets; evil, nightmarish monsters known as the Oni; good wizards; bad wizards; beautiful women; spies; and wizardly spells?
Well, it is entirely the genie's fault....

Love it when they have a whole cast

First, I greatly appreciate it when a cast is used to add more character to the audiobook. It always seems to make the story come alive for me. The story itself was imaginative and unfolded at a good pace that kept me listening start to finish. Literally. The hero was believably capable despite or perhaps due to the ignorance of his situation and not having anyone tell him what is and isn't possible. Without any spoilers I will say that he made me want to laugh at his ingenuity and his resourcefulness while questioning his ability to judge others intentions. Overall I thought it was highly addictive and I can't wait for the next release.

Mixed Opinion, not sure if I'll listen to Book 2

Overall I did not enjoy the story. For me, the story did not become interesting until about half way through the book. The first half is spent with main character obtaining his new wizard skills, learning how to use them and running away from the "bad guys". None of this I found of much interest. For me the story picks up when the protagonist meets Cappy....finally some human interaction and dialogue. Anywho...it picked up at the end and I am on the fence about purchasing book 2.
