Summary

Have you ever seen a planet invaded by rampaging space mutants from another dimension or Nazi dinosaurs from the future?

Don't let this happen to you!

Rifts happen, so you should be ready when universes collide. A policy with Stranger & Stranger can cover all of your interdimensional insurance needs. Rated "Number One in Customer Satisfaction" for three years running, no claim is too big or too weird for Tom Stranger to handle.

But now Tom faces his greatest challenge yet. Despite being assigned the wrong - and woefully inadequate - intern, Tom must still provide quality customer service to multiple alternate Earths, all while battling tentacle monsters, legions of the damned, an evil call center in Nebraska, and his archnemesis, Jeff Conundrum. Armed with his Combat Wombat and a sense of fair play, can Tom survive? And will Jimmy the Intern ever discover his inner insurance agent?

It's time to kick ass and adjust claims.

Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) performs Larry Correia's madcap interdimensional tale of underwriting and space travel, where the only thing scarier than tentacle monsters is a high deductible.

Superb Laugh Out Loud High-Speed, Utter Absurdity!

This one does exactly what it says on the tin, if you like the sound of the publisher’s blurb you are going to love it. Inter-space hi jinks and an insurance agent super hero. The humour is constant. The opening scenes had me laughing from the get go and the laughter continued with impressively high frequency for the whole two hours.

If you get this kind of humour then it’s great fun and Master Correia drags in many well-known personalities and even finds time to poke fun at himself in a variety of ways. One person that definitely gets the humour is Adam Baldwin who gives it the full Scooby Doo and no mistake!

Nothing is sacred, most of Europe and Asia is gone within the first ten minutes and everyone from John Wayne to a Balrog gets dragged in during this all-too-brief adventure. The Balrog’s “predicament” I found seriously funny along with the help system on the Combat Wombat!

On top of all that it’s free, at least for now! What can possibly go wrong? If you want a laugh just get it. The only people I wouldn’t recommend this to are call centre managers . . .

Mental, but good fun!

Lots of fun and very well read! Definitely an acquired taste, though.
Does what it says on the tin!

Awful

Really awful and So really, really, really, really, really, really awful. Such a shame, I enjoy the work of this actor/narrator.

Derivative, childish, but adult..

Drawing on the vast sum of popular culture (as long as it's within the presumably short 20 year frame of reference of the author), this book reads like teen fiction with adult language sprinkled throughout in an attempt to place it in the grown up section.

Seriously poor and lazy writing and at times frankly embarrassing in its ass-kissing towards some dubious characters (such as the narrator, who just so happens to be the president of the USA in the book.. Get a room!)

Almost goon show levels of surreal humour. Highly enjoyable reading by President Baldwin. Do not miss this gem.

Brilliant and Witty with brain on or off :)

So having listened to some pretty heavy sci-fi recently i really needed someone lighter to listen to and this appeared so i though i would give it a try. I was hooked from the start. Its very very very funny on a lot of levels and you really dont need to plug your brain in to listen. Not that its not clever.

I would recommend this for anyone who likes things likes things like Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy or Any of the Jim Butcher books.

Absolutely brilliant

This really was a laugh out loud experience. The story was extremely funny and Adam Baldwin was brilliant. His voice recreations and ability to read the book as it had been intended was marvellous. I will be listening again to this. A must and now a favourite.

Not very funny

The references to our world were heavy handed and the "fun" of the story wasn't there for me. There's a kind of bitter "aren't young people dumb nowadays" take to a lot of the jokes. It might not be a bad book but it just didn't hit my sense of humour at all which is a shame because I normally like quirky oddball stuff.

Adam Baldwin did a fantastic job narrating though!

Unnecessary political jabs

The first time I was like "did he really just say that?" and the second time I was like "this seems like a fine time to move on to something better."

Overall, this isn't bad. Overall, it isn't good either. Total fluff piece that takes time to protest the fact that we only got one season of Firefly. Quite a few laugh out loud moments. Straightforward, predictable and without any real tension or suspense, it's good popcorn listen if you can get past the author's political cheap shots.

But, I can't, so moving on. According to other reviews, if I'd kept listening I'd have a far more negative review. Sounds like it gets much worse. (P.S. Very short for the price.)

This was awesome!

Adam Baldwin needs to read all of Larry Correia's books. The story was wacky and Adam made it incredibly fun!

funny and short

Adam Baldwin did a fantastic job reading this book! Many voices, sound effects, and very enjoyable to listen to. The story itself made me laugh out loud. The alternate worlds and the famous names mentioned, made it funny.

Loved this story

Campy and entertaining I recognized someone or something in each situation or person. The tongue in cheek play on common frustrations kept this story and the laughs going.

Aggressively silly

If you like silliness, satirical social commentary, meta-humor, or making fun of the people who cancelled Firefly, this book is probably for you.
