Summary

Travel with Steve, doomed for eternity to serve as hell’s Mr. Fixit, on a wild ride through the circles of hell in this best-selling, humorous fantasy series. The box set includes a complete story arc originally published in:

Hell’s Super

A Cold Day in Hell

Deal with the Devil

The Reluctant Demon

Circles in Hell has been variously described as satire and humor, comedy fantasy, or paranormal humor in the spirit of Christopher Moore, Tom Holt, Douglas Adams, and Gary Larson. The series takes the everyday frustrations of modern life and expands them to hellish proportions.

You never know who you will run into in Cain's cracked inferno. You might encounter a great inventor, a movie star, a mythological being, a very large bat, and, of course, more than the occasional devil and demon.

Hell is clearly quite a boring place

There is nothing terrible about this audiobook, but I have just returned it.

The reader of this audiobook does a competent job, and I would go so far as to say is enjoyable to listen to with clear diction.

The stories are mediocre at best I feel. The audiobook is extremely long, and while there are stories being told they are not engaging or particularly entertaining in the telling. The comparison to modern humorous writers seems a little over complementary. The author underestimated the audience with needless explanations, moves very slowly and lacks wit and charm with humour coming from most obvious sources. There is no challenge in this book whatsoever, just many hours spent in hope of some.

Good story Line

Good story lines, voices by the narrator can be a bit annoying, but definitely an easy listen.

Not for me

This set was not for me. I understand the humour and I think it would be really funny for some. I recommend you listen to the sample, if it tickles your fancy…go for it.

A hell of a time

A really good listen. I found it a little difficult to stay awake.
not because of boredom but for listening in so long.
And having to find where I fell asleep.
And it's a damn good listen

I Got Heaven For Free!

Well now, do you believe that we were made in God’s image, that we are his, messy and weird as fluff productions? Do you, not, give a figgy biscuit about God’s existence? Do you subscribe to, or agnostically laugh at the religiousness that this world has to offer? Do you enjoy a bit of malicious compliance…c’mon, be honest? Can you get behind a smidge of sarcasm and a whole glut of shenanigans? Do you have Audible Unlimited? (Not a paid promotion).

Are you worried you won’t finish all the books? Well stop worrying!!! These books take less commitment than marriage, while last longer and feeling better than conjugal necessities! The books have been well written, with characters you may already know, in situations, unexpected, by the character and reader. Mark Cain isn’t my ‘go to’ author, but I am going to have to check out what else he’s been up to! These books are hilarious, irreverent and very, very enjoyable.

Now, ask me, was the narrator like licking a nine volt battery? Funny you should ask that! Yes, he did have a bit of a weird flavour, but he also had some fizz with occasional jolts of high energy! Plus, not everyone is able to do perfect accents, and I’m sure we’ve all been in a pub and tried the accent of the bloke next to us, only being saved a beating because the bloke found us too funny to pulverise, though he did make us promise to never visit Liverpool!! Haven’t we? No? Well, me neither!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, Books 5-8 have finished downloading and I have got to start finding out what deeds are to be done, or indeed, undone next! Liverpool? I know nothing, I never met her!

Loved them

I really enjoyed these books and the quirky way at looking at the afterlife, my only problem is the narrator's attempts at accents are just bad. But if you can listen past that they are great!
