Publisher's Summary

Cut class. Kick ass. Save the frigging world.

When college sophomore Dan Marshall's life morphs into a hybrid of Penn State and a home-brew tabletop RPG adventure, he grabs his talking two-handed sword and hits campus, seeking gold, girls, and glory.

But even with two beautiful badass women at his side, how can a low-level barbarian survive when he’s pitted against a fraternity of gnolls, a dungeon full of nightmares, and an apocalyptic death cult bent on destroying the whole world?

Warning: Dan the Barbarian is an over-the-top adventure novel intended for listeners 18 and older. It includes explicit sex, graphic violence, a harem of gorgeous ass-kicking girls, and a foulmouthed two-handed sword. Listen at your own risk.

Dear God this is sooooo bad

The plot depth and writing style is tween fiction except for the comically explicit sex scenes. It's ridiculous how earnestly the whole thing is written. But hey, If you are involuntary celibate with a sub 80 IQ, you'll probably chant U! S! A!... U! S! A! as you listen to it.

Curiosity Pays!

I will admit I got this book out of pure curiosity and was floored by it! Wonderful work Hondo! You know I am going to be getting the second book in a moment. You have approximately 10 some hours to get the third written, published and made into an audiobook! LOL - seriously though, this was a true surprise and I am so very happy curiosity won out. Look forward to reading a hell of a lot more of Dan and his girls!

Convert the real world into litRPG

I've really enjoyed this series. The first (for me) to turn the real world into a litRPG adventure for the MC and it really sparked my imagination. Above average writing for this genre too. Good job Mr. Jinx. Gold, Girls and Glory!

Dan becomes The Man!

Dan wanted to live in another world, on of adventure and excitement, but when he gets his wish he discovers that comes with a price. Incredible author and one of the best narrators out there.

Like every guy who has ever played D&D's dream.

First of all. I read the book before I listened to this one. I loved the book so it was a no brainer. If you have not listened to anything narrated by Andrea Parsneau this would be the one you would want to start with. She nailed every single character in the book for me and really brought them to life. She nails Dan’s voice as the MC, college kid trying desperately to pass his classes and avoid the wrath of his crazy professor, to the seductive, and incredibly powerful duo of Holly and Nadia, and my personal favorite the foul mouthed talking sword Wulfgar. On a side note, I don’t know how she did it but Willis’s gnome voice was amazing! This story and performance will leave you wanting more, trust me. I can’t wait for the second one to come out on Audible!

Good story

Only complaint is that the main character is an idiot for most of the story. He is redeemed at the end tho. 8/10 story. Narrator is absolute 100/10. Amazing!!

The tale begins...

Fantasy Harem gameLit light with adult content. This is book1 in a 4-bool series. In this tale, the hero and MC is Dan. He starts out as a clumsy college nerd struggling to keep up his gredes while partying and playing RPG games. Learning he's going to fail a class and lose his scholarship, he goes to the museum, where he accidentally breaks a display case and destroys the exhibit within, This frees a genie who sends him to a parallel world filled with magic and creatures as a reward, while Dan himself is transformed into a barbarian, right out of high fantasy. Along the way, he gains the love of Holly, the elven druid who lives across the hall, and that of Holly's friend, Nadia -- who also manages to steal Dan's rent money. Then the story gets even crazier. It's a fun quest story where the newbies learn to survive while they learn to depend upon each other. It works. . Naturally, after listening to a few audiobooks, I've started to gain some favorite narrators. Before this series, I had never heard Andrea Parsneau perform. And in this series, perform she does. I was quite blown away by her skills. She kept my attention throughout the story. Whether you have read the ebook or not, you're in for a treat. Highly recommended.

Dan the Geek goes to Dan the Man

Love Andrea brought the story to life by making it a joy to listen to. If you like D&D give this a go you'll get a kick out of the references and Wish that there was someone around that could play chess with you lol

Hot D&D Adventure on steroids

Not for anyone who is squeamish about sex - very explicit, This is a really cool D&D type story set in a modern college campus. The juxtrapostion of the two worlds was neat. The narration was excellent, Andrea can do male voices very well, most female narrators just go for a variation of a deep voice. The women in the story are very badass and sexy at the same time.

Ruined potential

I only read it because of the author, I really like her narration and she did an excellent job but the book was ruined by character flaw, Dan is soo dumb that I wondered why he was the main character, I felt like bashing my head when he couldn't connect the dots and the selfpity is too much to handle.
