Jig the Goblin
1 : Goblin Quest

by Jim C. Hines
Apr 1, 2013
6 Hours
All Ages
Jig the goblin was the runtiest member of an admittedly puny race. Jig was scrawny, so nearsighted as to be almost blind, and had such a poor self-image that when he chose a god to worship it was one of the forgotten ones - after all, what other sort of god would have him as worshiper? He also had a cowardly fire-spider for a pet, a creature that was likely to set your hair on fire if it got into a panic. Made to stand tunnel watch by the goblin bullies who'd been assigned the job, it was just Jig's luck to be taken captive by a group of adventurers - with the usual complement of a dwarf warrior, a prince out to prove himself, his mad wizard brother, and an elfin thief. Forced to guide this ill-fated party on their search for the Rod of Creation - though Jig had no more idea how to find it than they did - he soon had them stumbling into every peril anyone had ever faced in the fantasy realms. And they hadn't even found the Necromancer or the Dragon yet!

Great fun and adventure by corey (Posted on 10/21/2018)
Even my wife enjoyed this series as a light hearted and fun adventure packed with action and silly antics. Loved it!
Goblin Quest by Theresa (Posted on 2/3/2018)
Wasn't sure about this book, but once I started to listen to it, I was captured by the story of the small under sized goblin Jig. Couldn't wait to listen to it when I had to stop and do other things. Was excited at the end couldn't wait to start to list to Goblin Hero, The different creatures capture you and you want to root them on through out the story.

This is my first cd. I’m not much for listening to Audio books. I was blown away by the quality of the audio. The characters that bring the book a live. I was hook from the beginning. I had read the book and really enjoy it on audio form. Great job.

An Amazing twist in perspective in traditional fantasy. This story told from the point of view of a goblin is hilarious and inspiring. I am hopelessly addicted to this series now and have listened to the first installment repeatedly.
An Excelent Read... or Listen, as the case may be. by Christopher (Posted on 3/24/2017)
The harrowing adventure of a hapless little goblin trapped between ruthless "Heroes" and his equally ruthless goblin tribe. Fun, humorous, and it answers a few questions asked by gamers, such as : Why do all these monsters live in such close proximity, if they're in perpetual conflict?
Goblin Quest by Bos (Posted on 11/27/2016)
the story was very interesting, Jig is not your typical hero.
GOBLIN TRILOGY by Charles (Posted on 8/7/2016)
Goblin Quest is another great GA production,I loved this story.
One of my favorite stories by Alan (Posted on 8/7/2016)
I had first heard Goblin Quest when Sirius Radio had the audiobook channel, many years ago (too bad they got rid of that channel, as it was one of their best features). GQ is a great story brought to life by the GA crew, complete with sound effects, music, and decent acting. The accents were a little thick at times, so they were a little hard to understand. Overall, it's a good story and well developed. It's definitely worth the time to listen to, especially if you're on a long drive.
funny by Lionel (Posted on 3/4/2016)
Loved this. Very funny. Love how weak the goblins are.
Thumbs up by Victor (Posted on 7/30/2015)
If you're looking for simple entertainment, its here. Looking for something to do some serious thought chewing over, it's here. Great simple story that has some serious substance if you look for it. Good fairytale style story.
Engaging characters, lots of humor, all around fin romp through unusual fantasy setting.
Great fun for the family! by Bussingers (Posted on 6/30/2015)
I ran across these books a few years back and enjoyed the humor. When we received a free single download, we decided to try this series and see how funny it would be. Jig is an endearing character and the pace and light-heartedness of the series made it perfect for all of us to listen to in the car. I can't wait to get the next title in the series to share with the kids!
Hysterical by Amy (Posted on 6/26/2015)
This was such a fun book! It made a tedious drive fly by.
Goblin by Joshua (Posted on 5/22/2015)
It a great book
Loved it by Brittany (Posted on 5/4/2015)
I really enjoyed this series! I love the fact that it was an unlikely hero that followed with blind faith. Really good humor and a great adventure!
Goblin Quest by Bill (Posted on 4/18/2015)
This one is kinda funny in a good way. A near sighted goblin as the hero of the story. That alone got me into the story. Having the adventurers in the story almost made the whole story seem like an old D&D game but it still works. The sound effects, music, acting and rest of the production is up to the usual ga standards. I plan on listening to the rest of the series.
Very good! by Mary Jo (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 by john (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 by Donovin (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 by Ginger (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! by Jason (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.
funny :) by Anthony (Posted on 12/31/2013)
Very funny good read
Funny like Red Dwarf or Hitchickers Guide by Scott (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 by Natalie (Posted on 9/24/2013)
Got this one when I couldn't find the one I was searching for, was not disappointed!!
New favorite by Chad (Posted on 9/20/2013)
Hooked on this trilogy, super funny and never a dull moment.
Goblin Quest by Lee (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 by Brandon Neff (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 by Demario Griffin (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 by Eric Butler (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 by Barney McCasland (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!
