It's a simple story. Boy finds proof that reality is a computer program. Boy uses program to manipulate time and space. Boy gets in trouble. Boy flees back in time to Medieval England to live as a wizard while he tries to think of a way to fix things. Boy gets in more trouble. Oh, and boy meets girl at some point.

The story is hilarious (great premise!) and the performance is just as enjoyable. Luke Daniels does great voices and never misses a beat. I enjoyed this so much that I've been listening to the other books in the series and find them all very entertaining. Highly recommended.

What happens when the haggling is done and the shops are closed? When the quest has been given, the steeds saddled, and the adventurers are off to their next encounter? They keep the world running, the food cooked, and the horses shoed, yet what adventurer has ever spared a thought or concern for the Non-Player Characters? In the town of Maplebark, four such NPCs settle in for a night of actively ignoring the adventurers drinking in the tavern when things go quickly and fatally awry.

I thought it was a great idea, but I was expecting more - I thought the story was a bit two dimensional and the performance was sometimes a bit staccato, reminiscent of William Shatner's delivery. Nonetheless, the book got me hooked and I really enjoyed listening to it.
