  • Chester’s paranoia comes to a head in this episode and the office gets news about Moleth and her trip to Peru.

  • Our story comes to a close in this episode and…do you really want me to give it away in the description? I didn’t think so.

Really Enjoyed listening to this book on my daily commute. It reminded me of my days in the military when I had to deal with "unique" individuals. The only question I have is, Is there going to be a 8742? :)
I'm enjoying what I'm hearing so far, but I'm only at chapter 5. I found that there's an error on chapter 6, and there isn't a download box that pops up. I hope it gets fixed so I can hear the next chapter! :) Thanks!
The book was very good, I enjoyed it very much.
Yep you just told the story of my life here at work. The only thing you left out was Hot Guy. I am not referring to good looking either but to the guy who is always complaining about how hot it is even though it is freezing. Oh but you ...
Wow, my post seems really snarky now that I look at it. Sorry 'bout that. I used to live in Highlands Ranch, so it was cool to hear all the references to places I'm familiar with. I did enjoy the book, and I have Legon Awakening loaded up. Thanks!
Brian, Thanks for the heads up, we are talking about the same place everyone I know here in Denver knows it as BW2. But your right I wikipedia'd it, either way we are still talking about the same great restaurant. The one in the book is the actual, the restaurant ...
It's BW3, not BW2. Yeah, yeah, work of fiction, and in this fictional world the wing joint is called BW2. No, it's BW3.
Listening to the fourth installment. This is like the audio version of the Dilbert comic strip. That is meant as a compliment. Having worked for the company that sets the rates and determines the classifications for workers comp insurance, I can totally relate to the shenanigans and corporate bone-headedness related ...
This podiobook didn't have an intergalactic war, nothing about the french revolution, and no profound thesis about the ethical implications of human society.....BUT It was a really fun book, full of humour, quirky characters, nice dialogue, and i really enjoyed it. Thanks for making my office days a little more ...
quite a well done podiobook. i've burned through about 20 or so books and yours is definitely near the top in terms of story quality, which, IMHO, is the hardest thing to 'do' in writing. everything else can be improved with merely more practice/time. so you're doing well. :) look ...
