The Limpet Syndrome (book one)

John’s dead...but that’s just the beginning. 

Hell has a problem. Two, actually. The souls of Sandy Logan and Ian Noble are missing. This, as it happens, is a big deal. Brimstone, the demon responsible for the Soul Catcher, believes the most likely outcome is the end of the Universe. 

It’s obviously only a guess: It’s never happened before.

Soul Catchers (book two)

No one can live forever. 

John’s gone, and even he doesn’t truly know where. Demons, pigeons, gods, and a band of ex-dictators in plastic bodies are all eager to find him. Will they get to him before he can enact his revenge?

Dead Ends (book three)

Is there a happy ever afterlife? 

War is coming! Against gods, between species, and against the afterlife itself. Heroes will emerge from unlikely places, and John will yet again be forced to intervene in the future of mankind.

Existential Crisis (companion book)

A face-off between science and religion. Demon Top Trumps. A 14-billion-year timeline and the truth about pigeons. The definitive guide to the afterlife and a must listen for fans of the trilogy. Only available in this box set and to Limpet Club members.

magnificent trilogy of morals, pigeons and death

Loved this trilogy of books and the narration from Aubrey Parsons was magnificent (as usual) So many characters which I loved and the storyline running through kept me hooked until the end. The morals, pigeons and death were very memorable and I look forward to listening to more of Tony's books in the future.

Fantastically Funny And A Lot For The Money

This is a brilliant series and an absolute steal as a set of three for one credit. Tony Moyle's style of writing will make you laugh out loud and leave you wanting more. There are so many unique characters that on their own would make good stories, but combined make you wonder what the author has been smoking. Aubrey Parsons narration adds personality to the characters and really brings them to life. Books you can listen to again and again, and hear something new each time.

Get this, now!

An absolute joy. Cleverly constructed and brilliantly delivered. Fast-paced and entertaining, throughout. The plot is the most believably, fantastically absurd, fun-filled frolic. Funny always and, at times, laugh-out-loud. Perfectly narrated with versatility and an obvious knowledge of the books.

most bizarre book I've ever listened to

This book was mental in the best possible way. If you liked The Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy or if you are a Terry Pratchett fan then this is for you. This is not the kind of story I'm normally drawn to but this was soooooo querky I totally enjoyed it. The voice acting was all over the place but I think that might even have been intentional. Agent 15 sounds like they hired Billy Connolly to impersonate Sean Connery doing James Bond 😂😂😂 and half of the other characters sound like a very drunk and very old Jack Sparrow. This box set was hilarious. I would absolutely recommend it.

Long Imaginative Weird Adventures

Three books as one makes for a very long audible listen. Especially as traversing different hellish, earthly, and heavenly universes gets very descriptive and imaginative throughout. You really get your imagination twisted, expanded, at at times stretched with this trilogy.

There’s an audio error in book 2 Soul Catchers Chapter 17. The dialogue of the Mr Noir character is missing from a conversation 18:05-07:56 - 19:49-06:12.

Spoilers may follow.

The bit where Grace explains what grace is had me tearing up.

The giving birth scene when Nash becomes a bunny, was unbelievably crazy weird.

The thing about describing hellscapes is it’s often difficult for readers to envision what the author has in his mind.

When Grace the neutral explains her love near the end I absolutely burst into tears of emotion, such simple yet profound words of explaining what love is.

The way each chapter cuts off at random cliffhangers and then starts up again in someone else’s storyline, is confusing. Even when it goes back to the other storyline eventually at random.

Very preachy at the end with Jon’s speech.

Overall a wild and weird book with characters of many species on Earth. My favourite characters were Sandy and Ian in book 1, and Scrumpy in books 2 and 3.

Terrible story, terrible narration.

The story is tedious, with no original ideas, just badly rehashed old ones. The protagonist is unlikeable, as are most of the other characters. The narrator seems to be of the "the more silly voices the better" school of readers.

Distracting, unfortunately.

Either of author/narrator has difficulty with longer words!

Otherwise, an enjoyably interesting, original and inventive story.

Not for me

I kept listening to the first one because the story was so weird, and I just couldn't tell if I liked it. I finally just looked up the plot and found out what happened. Glad I didn't give it more time. Not my best Audible Recommended.

Time well spent!!

I adored this whole production! This was such a fun and funny story, as well as being philosophically poignant. Great writing, and wonderful narration/character voices.
