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 . . .

Couldn't get past the first 10 minutes

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If it had been written by Douglas Addams.

What was most disappointing about Larry Correia’s story?

I was hoping for something, witty and captivating along the lines of Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy but I found this dull and silly.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Adam Baldwin?

Julian Rhind - Tutt

What character would you cut from The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

To be fair I didn't listen to the story as I couldn't bear it after the first 10 minutes. I downloaded it on a whim as the title sounded interesting - I've discovered some good authors this way but inevitably there's going to be a few duds and this was one - just not my cup of tea.

what a load of rubbish.


I stuck this on while on a long drive, to be honest, the only thing that kept me listening was that it was difficult to change it in traffic. Don't let the little pop culture references fool you. filled with some bizarre right-wing propaganda, this one was a complete waste of time.

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.

Ridiculous

At least it was free. That's really the only good thing I have to say.

Absolute trash

There is no humour here. An interesting premise with pretty much zero follow through. It has about 3 'jokes' it reuses over and over and none of them are actually funny. No depth to any of the characters. The author also somehow manages to fail to describe any single action and just relies on vague gestures toward things happening rather than telling you what is happening.

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!
