Funny... but not to me.

It tries to be funny but sexual harassment and being gay are just not funny to me. I recognize that "these are the jokes" but I have no urge to laugh... it is simply banal. Too bad because I want to like the charactures and find out what happens to them but then they mention the hero's name... Har, Don. Suddenly I just don't care.

It's like Kevin Smith if he wrote a sci-fi series

I was looking for something to listen to that was funny and not too deep. This checked all the marks. To top it off , it is a ton of hours of listening pleasure for only one credit! These stories are about what equates to a bunch of 'red shirts' (Red shirts were the cannon fodder in the Star Trek series) assigned to an old, crappy space ship and sent out on a (unknown to them) suicide mission. These books are not for anyone looking for serious sci-fi space stories, but for those looking for something fun to listen too and are cool with dick jokes and innuendo.

If there is one thing I TRULY HATE....

...it's when someone is trying to promote a new or recent book series by saying "if you liked "X" you'll LOVE THIS 'good old whatever it is'. Then I buy it, excited for a new and delicious read And it sucks big ol donkey d***s. This PROMISED to be every dodgy, off colour, sleazy thing wrapped into one hilarious Platoon F'ing ride, so on Friday night at about 9:30 pm, I used my coveted subscription credit (as opposed to space jockey credits) to buy the Big Ass Bundle 3 on audio (which has 9 books) because I figured that if I was going to waste a credit on some risque stuff, I might as well get as much as I could for that one credit. The best time I have for listening to books is while I'm working because I can listen to a book in just a few days that would take me at least a week to read from hard copy, and I have many books that lost my interest right from the first chapter when they weren't even close to what they promised. THIS IS **NOT** ONE OF THOSE BOOKS!!!! I started listening on Saturday while fixing breakfast and my daughter came in several times asking what I was laughing at. I explained. Her response? 😳 Finally, truth in advertising and there truly is no better person to read a book than the person who wrote it. Yes, there are many narrators that are amazing and I would listen to them read the phone book; and there are also many narrators who are so deadpan that I struggle to keep interested even if the book in question is one that I dearly love and have read the hard copy until the pages are falling out. Having the author reading his or her own work has the advantage that when you have a particular character thay thomething, you KNOW how they thpeak.... er, speak... you KNOW what inflection you meant when you wrote that line, and how the other characters react to what they thaid... Even though I didn't have a lot of available time over the weekend to "read" I am already on book 3 (well, 4 now...) and am having to be careful listening at work because people give me funny looks but I guess it's no different than the looks that Rear Admiral (😂🤣) Parfait is giving anyone who is breathing and within arm's reach of him THIS SERIES IS AMAZING!!!!! I am so glad I took the chance on using that credit.... I will definitely be checking out his other series as well

Mindless and lame humor

This book is completely awful. The humor is childish and largely based upon sexist and homophobic humor. There is no real story underlying this trash.

Possibly the largest waste of my time ever.

This series is complete drivel. It’s sexist, homophobic, and complete crap. Spend your money elsewhere if you know what’s good for you.

Probably very funny for a teenage boy - but not me

I love Science Fiction and Comedy. But this kind of comedy is not it. If I was a teenage boy it would be funny. I'm not. It isn't. The narration was okay. Returning this. Wish I hadn't eaten up my internet GBs downloading this.

Absolutely hilarious

It’s a tongue-in-cheek blend of all the great sci-fi shows (Star Trek, Dr. Who, etc.). A must read for those who like sci-do and satire!

Side-Splitting Laughs

In my opinion, this is Logsdon and Young's funniest series. I made it through this entire series in about a week. It fit my twisted sense of humor perfectly! Logsdon, as usual, nails the narration and keeps you listening and laughing. Rear Admiral Parfait and Jesden make me laugh every time they talk. Definitely not for anyone who is offended by toilet humor and jokes that aren't politically correct. But, for me, this was totally hilarious from start to finish!

A dicking good laugh!

It wouldn't be John P. Logsdon if there wasn't a healthy dose of dick jokes to enjoy! And let's be real here, who doesn't love a good dick... joke!!!

Great story/performance not for the PC brigade

Ok first off, if you're a "right-on", "politically correct" person ... just skip this because the stereotypes will annoy you. If you take one look at a "Carry On" film and start writing angry letters ... it's not for you. However, if you're willing to see how the characters develop and the stereotypes become real and are dealt with with humour and respect, then great. Now we have that out of the way, this is a great series with many genuine laugh out loud moments. The narrator is fantastic with wonderful characterizations and voices which make it easy to tell which character is speaking. Honestly, one of the best that I've heard. I don't want to talk much about the story and ruin it, but whilst you might think that it starts out as a cliche, the twists and turns, soon turn it into something much more. The series develops very well (I'm on Book Eight right now) and never feels like it's dragging. The only slow moment is the story-recap near the start of each book but that's only noticable because I'm listening to one book after the other. It isn't that instrusive. I will be looking out for other books by these authors and definitely by books read by this narrator. Honestly, you can't spend your credits in a better way than this but do expect some off-colour jokes and characters. They will flesh out (as Jensen or Parfait would say) but until then you might be thinking "ugh". Don't. It's absolutely worth listening to this series unless you are really an OTT PC person. For the record, I'm female. And pushing 50.

Great Narration

Hmm, I can say I enjoyed this, a lot, despite the stories flagging at time’s mainly due to the author seeming failure to spot when he should stop labouring a point. The humour is there and while I never laughed out loud I was either smiling or just appreciating the strangeness of the stories, very enjoyable if not sparkling. The Bawdiness of the book mainly stems from one character and his, explained, focus on sex. It’s bawdy rather than explicit form just one facet of the narrative and is not going to offend if you have ever come across schoolboy humour, although this is accomplished schoolboy humour. The narrator is fantastic and gives voices to all the characters that are, by and large, distinguishable and often wonderfully exaggerated. At the end of the book there are a small number of outtakes where the author just loses it, bursting into a fit of laughter, and I can understand how delivering those lines with those voices while keeping a straight would be a difficilt task. W well done sir!

Red dwarf meets carry on.

jouvenile humor at times but still quite funny with brilliant narration and long enough to be excellent value for one credit

Pissed my pants

Loved it. Stories are so random and f#@kd up. Lovable characters especially GEEZER (Sorry didn't spell his name right). Very funny, the humor is dry clever and the right amount of ridiculous. Narration is excelent.

A great series

I was given a free copy of this for an honest review. I really enjoyed the level of humour. It’s like immature lad humour whilst half cut in the pub. A big thumbs of for Logsdon. Something different from ononokin but you can tell they’re written by the same author

The ups and downs of a long haul audiobook

Seeing as this is from what I can tell the entire series there’s too much to go through so I’ll try and be brief. There’s a lot of stereotypes in this story but there’s an in-story reason behind it so you need to give it a chance. A lot of the humour comes from this. I’d say it’s very much like say family guy South Park and even a bit of rick and morty. If you like those shows than you’ll enjoy most of what you get but be aware your getting a lot of hours and it does take its toll on you. This could be because I listened to this pretty much from start to finish with a couple of gaps in between for other audiobooks but you’ll still feel that mental fatigue. The characters are enjoyable, the situations fun but the humour won’t be for everyone. Not sure I’d go as far as describing it as an acquired taste but still. I enjoyed my time following Platoon F and their shenanigans but I won’t be in a hurray for a repeat listen.

Brilliantly funny

I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. My honest review is that this is a brilliant bundle and I shall be investing in more of these books! The author captures a red dwarf style humour crossed with a Terry Pritchett wit. I laughed alongside the characters and realised I need more of this kind of belly laughing. Unless you have had a sense of humour-ectomy, this is for you!!
