Very good! (Posted on 10/12/2014)
- I didn't know what to expect with this series. I am new to GA. I decided to look for another author to give a try. I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed this production very much. I listened to #1 twice to make sure I had a good understanding of the characters and situations before progressing. My only complaint is that sometimes the background music is a little loud and makes the story hard to hear. The narrator does an excellent job. Her voice reflects the situations very well.
Goblin Hero (Posted on 10/8/2014)
- I read this series on accident years ago and loved it. Randomly saw this production in a truck stop, and bought it to check it out. It got me hooked on Graphic Audio, and now I can't quit.
Unlikely hero (Posted on 10/6/2014)
Who says that the hero of the story has to be high born noble with armor that shines like the sun? Who says that the villan has to be some sick and twisted black knight? And who says the adventure has to be of rescuing some damsel in distress?
In this fun little series we meet a small and unimpressive goblin who is suddenly finding himself thrust into the world and on an adventure that no-one expects him to survive. Listen along as this runt of a goblin finds the most...interesting of ways to not only stay alive but...save the day.
Hilarious Spin (Posted on 10/1/2014)
- Hines has a way with twists, making the cowardly Jig the protagonist. Ever wonder what happens to those nasty goblins adventurers encounter? This is a riotous tale of adventure, hilarity and surprises.
Halariously funny! (Posted on 4/30/2014)
- As usual Graphic Audio has delivered a fun and engaging listening experience. The acting was great and the music as awsome as ever. This story is a fun satire on the fantasy genre that puts an intresting twist on the roll of hero and vilin. And Smudg the fire spider is in my opinion the funniest character in the book. I highly recomend it.

- Very funny good read
Funny like Red Dwarf or Hitchickers Guide (Posted on 12/3/2013)
- OR like Blue Moon by Simon Green. This book may not be epic like other fantasy novels, but if you in the mood for comedy this is definitely a good fit. The main character is smart, stupid, greedy and surprisingly selfless. The goblin gets captured by a typical group of adventures from any RPG Dungeons and Dragons style game. Except with all the flaws those characters would have and those flaws are half the fun. They forced him to find a treasure while making him question who the real evil race is , goblins or the so called "heroes". In the end, despite the comic story there are moments of real dangers and emotion and at the end our goblin hero has grown and improved. If you want to laugh then get this book.
Goblin Quest (Posted on 9/24/2013)
- Got this one when I couldn't find the one I was searching for, was not disappointed!!
New favorite (Posted on 9/20/2013)
- Hooked on this trilogy, super funny and never a dull moment.
Goblin Quest (Posted on 8/23/2013)
- I have finished the first book in this series. Jig is the type of character you grow attached to. It is fun to watch him grow as a character, as he meets one trial after another. The acting, the music and the sound effects are top notch! I am looking forward to listening to book 2.
Review (Posted on 8/19/2013)
- Tough to rate this one. It wasn't great, as it was a little silly, but then again it is SUPPOSED to be a little silly. I let the kids listen to it, wincing every time the characters said "piss". The kids still talk about Jig, though, so it certainly resonated with them. The story was a little hard to follow at times, particularly near the end.
Review (Posted on 8/8/2013)
- I loved this story. The plot is not complex at all, but the characterization is very specific. GA did a wonderful production job.
Review (Posted on 7/12/2013)
- Definitely another good series. It's not quite up to the same writing pizazz as the Nuclear Bombshell series. But, GA does a spectacular production that makes up for the slightly dull plot. The actors do an exceptional job of donning accents and filling out the characters they portray. I particularly liked the character of Jig. Looking forward to seeing how the series fleshes out. If you're into Dungeons and Dragons, you'll recognize this as based on that sort of dungeon crawl. I'd almost bet that the author was rolling the dice while writing. ;)
Review (Posted on 5/23/2013)
- Goblin Quest is another great GA production, and I'm anxious for the second book in the trilogy to find out what will happen to Jig next. Not that the story leaves anything hanging, only foreshadowing a little(?) future events, but Jig's character development was very interesting to me, and I'm wondering just how much he'll have changed by the end. It was also interesting to hear how GA portrayed everything in the book, from the sound effects to the accents. I want to point out one omission in the casting credits, however: they didn't say who played Smudge, and I'm really wondering if in the book Smudge was described as making those kinds of sounds, or if that was an added touch by GA... If you like "rpg fantasy" or Simon R. Green's Forest Kingdom Saga (also available from Graphic Audio), then you'll probably like the Goblin Trilogy. Like Forest Kingdom, it's light and humorous, but there are serious themes... Now, onto Nuclear Bombshell 6: The Flaxen Femme Fatale, another of GA's outstanding series. Actually, that brings to mind one more point I'd like to make: even though GA got it's start in the action/adventure genre...it also does humor really well!
