Summary

“Before I can begin my tale, you need to know about the king's panties.” 

So begins the epic adventure of 14-year-old Nigel, digger of latrines, shoveler of poop, and the single greatest threat to all the humans, elves, and halflings of Esteria. 

Nigel needs to escape from military school. Who can blame him? After all, the king just declared war on the gorks, and he's pretty sure his latrine-digging skills aren't going to be much good on the front lines. 

Problem is, Nigel's escape efforts have a way of backfiring, taking him further from home, and destroying, well, pretty much everything that gets in his way. By the time he and his arch-frenemy are banished from the kingdom and sent on an impossible quest for a (probably bogus) magical artifact, the humans of Esteria find themselves longing for the good old days when they were merely being annihilated by Lord Smoron. 

Book one of the Nigel Chronicles, The Dragon Squisher tell the story of how Nigel, his too-perfect comrade Lance Hightower, and Eldrack, a female gork prisoner with a well-earned grudge against humans, usher in a new era of chaos and magic.

Kids loved it 8-10

Kids loved this. Good humour including magical panties, gorks, dragons that smell like farts, time travelling adventure, and the all smelling nose. What is there not to like?

Slow to start, but good

Honestly, the first few hours really "dragged" and were quite forgettable, but obviously also necessary for the rest of the book to make sense. Over-all, it's fun, cute, geeky (soooo many references to other fantasy novels, especially Tolkien stuff) and well-read. I'm not in a rush to listen again, but I don't regret having listened; especially as it is FREE as part of my Audible Membership. If you like Yahtzee, Hitchhiker's Guide, Discworld, etc, I recommend giving this a shot, but as aforementioned, bare with those first few hours.

Hilarious!

Oh, wow. This is a wild ride! It's part homage, part take-down of the classic quest fantasy. If you want some laughs, some Gorks, some military school, and a boat-load of irreverence, this one's for you. For kids, sure, but will definitely appeal to adults with a good sense of humor!

Not fun, not a kid's book

got this to listen because I wanted something fun and easy to listen to while I walked. this was marketed as a children's story, so I thought it would be funny. It's not. actually, the scenes with the main protagonist in boot camp was actually rather traumatizing. I just couldn't go on. have no idea why people think this is a fun book.

Funny parallel universe to LotR

Although the adventure aims at a teenage readership, the story is fun for all ages, especially if you like the Lord of the Rings universe.

Just No

To much to even put in here and only got through an hour. Also Forcing a character’s sexuality on people and their children after an hour into the book is unnecessary. There was absolutely no need to bring that into a storyline. What does having that aspect of a character revealed have to do with “Squishing dragons? Nothing!

Homosexuality

I didn’t appreciate the homosexuality introduced into this book. This is a children’s book about a 14 year old boy. I was listening to this with my son and we stopped it and won’t be finishing it. I wish there was a niche section of audiobooks available for those of us with traditional values. “Diversity” includes diversity of thought and diversity of opinion. Not Everyone has to agree with homosexuality or read about it. If that isn’t true then it isn’t really “diversity” that is being sought but “totalitarian” and “thought policing.”

not suitable for young children. should not be under the category of children's audiobooks. preteen would be a more appropriate category. not impressed at all.

Lol

Lol sums it up pretty good. A story within a story using funny names, great adventure, and strong bonding with friends. I really enjoyed it.
