Milking the Giant Cow!

Hilarious book. Reminds me a lot of Terry Pratchett's earlier work ... fun, light, and very witty. I'm going to start downloading the author's other books now. Hazaah!

Short, sweet and refreshing

Would you listen to Heroics for Beginners again? Why?

No, because I usually don't do second listens.

Would you recommend Heroics for Beginners to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes. It's over the top in all the right ways. The narrator nails the sarcasm and delivers the humor.

Which scene was your favorite?

I did not have a favorite scene. I thought the story was decent from start to finish. I laughed frequently.
