Inhaltsangabe

A not-quite epic science fiction adventure about a down-on-his luck galactic pilot caught in a cross-galaxy struggle for survival!

Space travel just isn't what it used to be. With the invention of Quantum Teleportation, space heroes aren't needed anymore. When one particularly unlucky ex-adventurer masquerades as famous pilot and hate figure Jacques McKeown, he's sucked into an ever-deepening corporate and political intrigue. Between space pirates, adorable deadly creatures, and a missing fortune in royalties, saving the universe was never this difficult!

From the creator of Mogworld and Jam! Benjamin Richard "Yahtzee" Croshaw is a British Australian comedic writer, video game journalist, author, and video game developer. He is perhaps best known for his acerbic video game review series, Zero Punctuation, for The Escapist.

Überraschend

Nicht so sehr im Inhaltlichen Sinne als viel mehr alles andere:
Der Autor hat das Hörbuch selbst gelesen und obwohl er offensichtlich (noch) kein professioneller Sprecher ist, macht er eine überraschend gute Arbeit (vor allem mit fortschreitendem Handlungsverlauf).
Die Handlung selbst ist "Humoristisch", also auf eine sich selbst nicht ernst nehmende Weise wird man durch seichte Handlungsstränge geführt ohne je Situationen mit echtem Drama oder Ähnlichem zu begegnen. Wird dabei aber überraschend gut unterhalten.

Get the audible version!

It is voiced by the author himself and brings across the humor magnificently.
It gets a tiny bit draggy at one point, but except that it's probably the best and most original story I have had the pleasure of listening to in a long long time!

I don't want to spoil anything but I can tell you that it was one hell of a ride and that all the characters are extremely likable from the get go.

He did it again

If you know and love zero punctuation and Mogworld and Jam, you are in for a treat.
The story is an interesting take on sci fi and a spoof of everything vom Firefly to Star Trek.
Most of the Characters are well written and the quality of Yahtzees voice acting is as good as in the previous books

Awesome!

Funny and smart, delivered with the exquisite Yahtzee smug sarcasm!
I can only recommend this book!

fun, fast-paced and suspenseful story

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von Will Save the Galaxy for Food besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

This is my first book by the author, bought because the title caught my eye and the audio sample quickly hooked me.

The author does an amazing job at throwing me right into the story, set into a strange, fascinating world peopled with characters which hit a good mix between odd and relatable. Especially the two mains draw me in quickly, for being flawed, certainly not in control of events but, when push comes to shove, capable and tough as nails.

Add to that: read by the author himself, which is always great because it means the characters and the story telling sound just like they were meant to sound. Mr Croshaw may not be a trained speaker, but he certainly is an experienced one and frankly, I've heard audio books read by professionals who were simply over-doing it to the point where it felt that showing off how amazingly good they are was at least as important as the book they were reading.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

The plot moves quickly and without being predictable, and it's peppered with events or objects which slowly build the world the story is set in. So you never get a huge info dump to explain the world to you, you just learn important bits and pieces as you follow the mains as they either catch or dodge whatever nasty surprises the plot throws at them.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Maybe this book was suggested to you (as to me) while browsing Douglas Adams or books with a similar mix of comic and scifi. It does have parellels to Douglas Adams, like being laugh-out-loud funny, wildly imaginative, throwing the reader right into events and having non-heroic heroes. But by no stretch is it a rip-off of Douglas Adams. Give the audio sample a try and see for yourself :)
