I listen rather than read on train journeys as I can't stand being jostled by other travelers, and walking & listening is so easy
I haven't laughed as hard for AGES as I did while listening to this - not only is the script incredibly well written, but the performances are brilliant, and the actors who are doing the voice work are all great
The concept is amusing in itself, but add in the comedy stars who acted this and you have comedy GOLD! One of the best things is having Sophie Winkleman playing the Elven princess, because imagining her in the role will make any red blooded man smile
I'm buying the second and third series as soon as I can to continue listening to the adventures, and hope that they're as brilliant as the first one is, or even hope that they're better - I will certainly look forward to the work of these writers on any radio broadcasts or audio books I find
Giving this anything less than 5 stars would be impossible for me as this was the funniest listen I've had in AGES - long live ElvenQuest!
Pretty uncontroversial, this. At least, if I dare say so, for anybody with an imagination and a sense of humour.
I'd seen the television series quite recently and, for a short time, my recollections of the television scripts were distracting me from the narrative in this audiobook - it was very similar, but not identical. However, before too long the memories were usurped, and I was entirely happy to go on the adventure all over again, as though it were the first time.
Yep. It's great.
