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.

    "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!!

    I started listening to this at work, had to stop after 15 minutes so I could save it for the rest of the family on the next car trip.

    Gales of laughter for the entire time.

    I give it a 10 for customer service. 😂

    Story
    "Most Unlikely Hero Ever!"

    I just finished listening to this and am not quite sure what hit me.

    Larry Correia has invented the most unlikely hero ever: an insurance agent dedicated to satisfying his customers' insurance needs because poor customer service is the ultimate sin. If you can suspend your disbelief and wrap your mind around THAT wild idea, you are in for an equally wild ride.

    Garfield the Cat is a Dark God, Bear Grylls is a metric, Chuck Norris is a KickA** Arbiter and Terminators are people too. Many of our favorite sci-fi heroes and shows make cameo appearances, including the author himself.

    Of course the hero has his burden to bear: the intern with the gender-studies degree. But Tom Stranger carries on with panache.

    Adam Baldwin was terrific. You need to listen to this. Now.

    "Do not drink coffee while listening to this"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is the second funniest thing ever after that killer joke from Monty Python! It is totally ridiculous and hilarious. As a devotee of comedy of the absurd I immensely enjoyed both the story and Mr. Baldwin's reading.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free: The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent?

    R. Lee Ermy as the secretary of defense! 'Nuff said!


    Have you listened to any of Adam Baldwin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he does a fantastic job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many to list in the space provided


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it now and laugh until you cry!

    excellent self-aware writing, packed with great references, read in an expert one man ensemble of voice acting.
    I just want to see more of this world so bad. Larry's ability to transform ordinary work positions into badass warriors has been in the background of several series he's written, and it just gets better here.

    "Two Hours of Gut Busting Laughs!"


    I LOVED this story; it was freaking HILARIOUS!

    Not only was this story creative, fun to listen too, and full of interesting characters, I could actually relate it! I work for one of the largest insurance companies where the claims department is one on end of the building, and the call center is on the opposite side and I'm in the middle. While I do love my job, the next time I'm having a bad day, I putting on my headphones, turning The Adventures of Tom Stranger, and just going laugh it off!

    Adam Baldwin's narration was over the top AWESOME! He really animated this story and I loved his performance!

    Thank you for Larry for such a great story!

    Somebody tell me why Adam Baldwin isn't spending all of his time narrating audiobooks. I had no idea he was so good at this. Wait to you find out who the secretary of defense is on the first earth. You will listen to Adam narrating him thinking that can't be but it is. The story from Larry Correia is hilarious, and I have no idea how Adam Baldwin managed to keep a straight face long enough to narrated without collapsing into hysterical laughter in the middle of telling the story. But somehow he does and it is amazing. Please tell me that the two of them plan on taking this show on the road. They could do arena shows with this. They could make millions.

    Story
    "Strange in all the right ways."
    Would you listen to Free: The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent again? Why?

    This story deserves more than one listening. This is one of those fun romps that you absolutely should share with friends over the course of an evening.
    Adam Baldwin does an amazing job portraying the wacky and weird setting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    President Adam Baldwin from the alternate Earth was hilariously funny - and, in true Firefly spirit, Larry Correia poked fun at the "people" at Fox who decided to cancel the series. Even Jayne's hat makes an appearance.


    What about Adam Baldwin’s performance did you like?

    The voices and mannerisms made it clear who he was imitating for the real world people, and gave all the other characters a distinct personality that exemplified who they are - sniveling and whiny for Jeff Conundrum, to the stoic and never hasty Tom Stranger, to his rather funny channeling of Shaggy from Scooby Doo for Tom's over his head and inept accidental intern.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I absolutely listened through this book in one sitting. It started off captivating, and did not disappoint.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Easily the funniest, most irreverent story I've ever heard. Two hours of non-stop laughter.


    Which character – as performed by Adam Baldwin – was your favorite?

    Wendell the Manatee.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Stranger


    Any additional comments?

    Larry Correia irreverently and hysterically mocks everything and everyone - including himself - from all known universes. Fair warning: your sides will ache from laughing so hard.

    Story
    "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 . . .

    Great writing, excellent first chapter. Anyone who has worked in an office will get a lot out of that one. I loved the casual renaming of the country and the Manatee finance director with the interns comments in the background. Great narrator, perfect comic timing. I'd highly recommend this book.

    "Couldn't get past the first 10 minutes"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If it had been written by Douglas Addams.


    What was most disappointing about Larry Correia’s story?

    I was hoping for something, witty and captivating along the lines of Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy but I found this dull and silly.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Adam Baldwin?

    Julian Rhind - Tutt


    What character would you cut from The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    To be fair I didn't listen to the story as I couldn't bear it after the first 10 minutes. I downloaded it on a whim as the title sounded interesting - I've discovered some good authors this way but inevitably there's going to be a few duds and this was one - just not my cup of tea.
