Frickin loved it

I had been put off reading these books initially because the covers did not appeal (yes I am that shallow). But at my wits end to find something to read I bit the bullet.

This is simply fantastic. Very funny and just makes the nerd in me look a little less nerdy. The whole series was a blast. I loved it.

great story

Still a great story from the first half of the series. The narrator still hasn't learned out to pronounce "Super Saiyan."

Great book, right up to the last 5-10 chapters

I enjoyed most of this book, even though the primary protagonist intentionally makes childish choices and insists on holding long conversations during “every” fight.

When the final confrontations began, I was sorely tempted to just stop the book.

I love Bill, his merry bunch, and so will you!

I can't count the number of times I have listened to this collection since it's release and sung its praises, the previous one comprises books 1-4, plus Sally's Sunset Strip. I love them that much. Rick Gualtieri as writer and Christopher John Fetherolf as narrator (Trish McKinley for Sally's story) make for a fantastic combination. I just converted my boyfriend too (he just started volume 2 of Scary Dead Things and is loving and laughing every minute) , who doesn't generally fall in love with audio books though is a lifelong bibliophile. He's a gamer and I love sci-fi and fantasy television, this series is one of the first gifts of entertainment we've mutually enjoyed. Thank you Rick G and CJF!!!

Also I've recently delved into The Strange Days series continuing Bill's completely epic saga a few years later with the release and look forward to more there. Keep it up.
Pretty please? With sugar, whipped cream, a cherry and a drizzle of blood infused chocolate on top?!?! !

Whether you are a lover of good narration, snarky comedy, good character development, or sci-fi and fantasy, or some combination thereof ... This series delivers and truly satisfies, with or without blood drenching it. I promise you won't regret the purchase.

Good series.

I really enjoyed this book. Im looking forward to the next book in the series. It does have alot of foul language in it. Caution needs to be made if letting a young teen listen to it.

This Narrator did not go to UCLA

I mean come on. How can someone not know how to say "Massachusetts", It's one of the first 13 states to join the union.. I MEAN COME ON DUDE!!!!!! WTF is "MassaWhosettes". To Rick Gualtier: Why would you want to keep employing this hack "Christopher John Fetherolf", to record your books??? Obviously he doesn't have a complete grasp of the English language.

Loved the series, and the world building .

The world building and character development was great. the only part that I saw needed work in was the Narator seemed to catch his breath in between chapters, and change the stone of how Bill was speaking, disrupting the emersiveness.

Wow that was fun

OK so I bought the first book and said I would give it a try it seemed a little far-fetched and silly but then I listen to the full first book yeah it was unbelievably awesome the characters make me laugh he says a lot of stuff that I would find myself saying in similar situations. It’s just overall funny good just amazing book

Again one criticism

As with the 1-4 books Bill doesn't seem to grow much as a person, this time he is contrasted with another who doesn't change. This may sway some to the unchanging nature of Bill. I still would have liked to have seen him change and that is why I held bad that final fifth star on story. I still greatly enjoyed these books and read other books by the author. I felt the series had a satisfying pay off with one small exception which I won't spoil and that isn't a criticism more of a please Mr Fetherof one more hit I need one more and you know about who.

enjoyable<br />

I really enjoyed the series from book 1 right through to book 8. I am a little disappointed that I have now finished them as I now have to try and find something that is going to keep me engrossed and wanting to listen at every opportunity. This is not a book for children to listen to due to the strong language but it is also the thing that makes it more realistic and not just someone reading a story to you.

Twilight meets Monty python.

Good if childish storyline spoilt by a narrator who either cannot read or an author who cannot spell. "Height" was pronounced "heighth" on numerous occasions, "vampiric" was pronounced "vamprick" "shone" pronounced "shown" and many other mistakes were made with the narration which made the book very hard to enjoy.
On the positive side, the characters were well created and well defined, and the story was funny and ran at a very fast pace.
