Summary

Swords.

Sorcery.

Dick Jokes.

Truly do the gods smile upon you, dear listener, for the first four books in the hilarious Caverns and Creatures series are now available in one audiobook set. Join Tim, Dave, Julian, and Cooper as they are thrown into a hostile fantasy world filled with magic and monsters, and ruled over by a cruel and sadistic game master who taunts and harasses them while he sits back and eats their fried chicken.

Having taken on the bodies of their fantasy characters, Tim and the others are forced to discover the answers to two questions that every underachieving lowlife who's ever rolled a d20 has asked themselves at least once.

What if you and your friends got to live the game for real? What if you and your friends were assholes?

Would you have what it takes to survive? The strength? The wisdom? The...charisma?

Do you have the dice in your sack?

It's like Lord of the Rings meets your mom in a truck stop bathroom, but even cheaper.

This set includes:

  1. Critical Failures
  2. Critical Failures II: Fail Harder
  3. Critical Failures III: A Storm of S-Words
  4. Critical Failures IV: The Phantom Pinas

decent value for money

it's an interesting concept with some light humour. Lacks intelligent humour but it's got a fair few well delivered comical moments. Would like to see some positive character development and some consistency with characters. Tim can switch from creative thinker to moron within sentences. The narration is superb.

Snort laughed out loud so many times, so be warned if listening outside as you will get funny looks from people!

This series is a gem! Will be listening to this again and again!

Good story, some funny twists

Good story, some funny twists, I do feel like it grew suddenly in the 3rd book and became a bit harder to follow but not by a lot

Needs 90%+ less toilet humour

I really enjoyed this as some light hearted wind-down reading/listening. The one major observation I have is that it genuinely needs 90%+ less references to genitals & toilet humour. It's not even limited to a personality quirk of one character but is incessant throughout and sounds like adolescent humour of a much lower age than I thought the characters were supposed to be, so it's jarring. It's to the point where I'd be too embarrassed to have this playing on anything other than private earphones, definitely not out loud. It seems to get progressively worse as the books progress. With that in mind, I have found a place for this in my low-effort listens library because I enjoy the story, core concepts and world overall, even if the language makes me cringe with unrealistically adolescent hammy bravado that perhaps should have been funnier than it was. I don't think they even count as 'dick jokes' as they're not actually setup to be funny a lot of the time, the references just dominate the otherwise good flow of the story.

Not worth the time or money.

Whilst the author does show the ability to put together a cohesive story line, he unapologetically fails at designing individual characters. Each and every character in the book is designed to be a prepubescent, homophobic half-wit. None of them have an individual personality, and each acts the same way in every situation, fart jokes, poo jokes and penis jokes. Honestly, for an author that makes homophobic comments at such a disturbing rate, I expected a lot less gratuitous homoerotic content.

I gave it my best shot with this book and tried to get through it. But by the point that it gets to someone using a grease spell to help insert a wooden dildo into a 'shit covered asshole' I was done.

If you have a very limited understanding of humour, or an obsession with penises and shit, give the book a go. if you want any element of variety in a story, steer clear, and pretend you never saw this.

started well

The concept & idea behind it was interesting, The 1st book started well & captured my imagination. But then it slowly sank into repeating toilet humour, characters whose personalities just switched & plot lines that just jumped around rather than building to a climax. by the 4th book it just felt like a different set of main characters, things happening just for the hell of it & a continues barage of low brow toilet humour which I'm not sure was there to shock or make you laugh, it did neither.
Not an author I will seek out or willingly listen to in the future. The performance of the narrator was the hilight of most of book 3 & 4.
