    2. I didn t know anything about Gary Jonas before I got this book But I did listen to a few of Joe Hempel s epic narrations, and that set me up with great expectations.Magic I love magic Sadly, the book turned out to be on an average side Even Joe Hempel couldn t make me rate it than 3 His narration is still good, and I gave his performance 4 on Audible He wasn t on top of his game either.The Half Assed Wizard is a well named book It tells us about Brett, a super lazy person who could be a great [...]

    4. The Half Assed Wizardby Gary JonasThis is the first book in a new series, according to the cover listing indicates it was published on June 4th of this year or 2 days ago , so guess I picked it up the second day it existed Huh Can t really tell, because, although there is a credit for the cover design and for the editing, I couldn t find a copyright or publishing notice anywhere on my Kindle e book edition says it was published by Denton White I even did a search for the words Denton and copyrig [...]

    8. This was a fast paced, fun, and snarky wizarding tale Brett Masters is way interested in sleeping, attempting to make music with his band, and drinking than he is in family wizarding politics He comes from a rich and powerful family and has never had to work for his keep Things are about to be upended I could totally picture Brett I ve known a few people like him stuck in that place of not contributing to anything so it was easy to get a feel for this main character right away The entire story, [...]

    9. Review originally published at lomeraniel audiobookreBrett s father is one of the most powerful wizards in the word, but Brett is just not interested in magic He likes the easy life that comes with family money, and his expectations in life are none beyond playing with his band One day Brett receives a mysterious package that will get him of of his comfort zone and in great danger He will either have to change his ways or die.As a fan of Jonathan Shade s adventures, I was looking forward to this [...]

    11. Describing this book in six words or less Slacker Trust Fund Wizard Avoids Responsibilities.More extended version is that a wizard who has absolutely no motivation to get off the teat opens mail containing ancient tarot cards Turns out a host of other people want those same cards as well That s as far as I ll get into it because to say would be to post spoilers and I m not about that life Throughout the novel, he acts the part of someone who doesn t take life seriously and is content to live of [...]

    12. The lead character Brett, is somewhat of a slacker, the third child of a powerful wizarding family and is fond of requesting explanations to anything to be in six words or less, so here s the six word version of my review Fun book, good narration, enjoyable starting point.While I enjoyed this book from the start and indeed went through it very quickly as it is not overly long either, I did think that the author may have laid it on a bit thick about just how lazy the main character was when that [...]

    13. This is a review of the audio version of this book This story is very entertaining, and I can t wait for Brett is the third son of a powerful wizard As such, he should also be very powerful However, Brett is too lazy to put forth the effort Magic is work, and this slacker isn t interested in work When a package is delivered and bad guys come looking for it, Brett s life becomes complicated than he likes I really enjoyed getting to know Brett and the rest of the cast of characters I can see how [...]

    14. I received this audiobook free for an honest review This was an interesting story I seemed to have a few places that drug along, however, the exciting part was at the end The title was quite accurate Half Asses Wizard I kept waiting for something to happen, but I had to wait until the end There was a surprise twist that I really wasn t expecting The narrator did a great job with the characters, especially Brett It was very easy to believe that he is a big kid with a who cares attitude I wanted t [...]

    15. I m not stupid I m lazy Classic I love the down to earth, barely snarky Brett You can t help but have a love hate relationship with him as he fumbles with his decisions he prefers stronger women, so he doesn t have to make choices, but just follow their lead This book drips of humour and the MC s laziness with a dash of drunken stupor and luck The combination takes the edge off a snarky hero and adds depth and character growth A wonderful first book in the series, narrated by the most talented J [...]

    16. Disclaimer I received this book for free Despite that, I ll give it an honest reviewWhat an absolutely fun book This story is about a Wizard who thinks magic is just too much work He s a guy who just wants to get by with to borrow a phrase Sex, Drugs, and Rock N Roll that s all he wants, but his family has other ideas So, for some real laugh out loud fun, start this great series today I listened to the audio version and I loved Joe Hempel s narration It s hard to imagine anyone doing a better jo [...]

    17. Well not all of it is lol funny, but overallThis is a great first book, plenty of action, lots of world building, and a good intro to the characters It caught my attention and left me wanting to know what happens next.As funny as this is it s also a bit sad, some of the relationships leave a lot to be desired Although that tension made the story interesting.Well worth a listen, the narration was well done with good character voices and an enjoyable delivery.I received a free copy of this book f [...]

    19. Magical CardsThe book centered around the male lead, Brett, who is only interested in drugs and the ladies until one day he touches a deck of magical cards.I liked the dialogue, it was sarcastic and funny Overall, an entertaining book that featured magic from different angles.Joe Hempel did a great job with the narration.Note This audio book was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

    20. My review is based on the Audiobook This story was such an enjoyable listen The sarcastic and somewhat immature thinking and actions of the male lead had me laughing out loud at points The story was not all silly antics, at its core it was a story of finding and accepting yourself The narrator s distinct charactor voices truly brought the story to life and I look forward to in this series.

    21. You Gotta Love a Committed SlackerWhat do you do when your from a blue blood wizard family, but you don t want to put in the work, you become a beach bum of course Great story about the black sheep of a powerful family He is lazy, a bit of a stoner, pretty much has mooches his way through life, and then life bites him in the a Funny, dramatic, off beat, and a great read Looking forward to the next installment.

    22. This is a fun and different take on fantasy A few areas could ve used explanation in the beginning of the book Mako Clansmen are introduced without the reader having an idea what they are presumably we were supposed to immediately think of mako sharks, but alas I lagged a bit there Nevertheless I enjoyed and am going to read the next book.

    23. He might be lazy, but we repeatedly see he s not dumb Now, Brett being lazy is not all bad It gives a little spice to the book At times it feels as though he doesn t know what to do, but then all the sudden he does More a smart aleck than anything I enjoyed his flavor of spunk FULL REVIEW TO FOLLOW

    24. The main character life is turned upside down There is a lot of action and humour as he puts it right The heroes and villians are very unique Definitely worth the read and I ll be reading to book 2.

    25. Not a bad book, funny in places and some clever ideas But the main character is just too much of a spoiled brat to fully like him not bad , just not particularly likeable So not a bad read, just not one to make me want to reread.

    26. Good easy readInteresting characters that kept me reading Not terribly complex or anything but very likable Good foreshadowing for the next book Looking forward to reading how our reluctant wizard develops in the next book.

    27. Juvenile wish fulfillmentJimi Hendrix s guitar from Woodstock A guitar pick magically imbued with the talent of a long list of pros And a hero who is a slacker douchbag Middle school pranks and sophomoric humor.Blah.

    28. Charming idiotYou have to love a main character who is likeable despite himself He s nearly worthless and I spent the entire book hoping he d stay true to his lazy, shiftless self I enjoy being exasperated apparently.

    29. Dont like plot, protagonist, series Too childish even for YA Main character a self admitted loser Plus a jerk Humor falls flat I saw nothing different in this book to set it apart from a host of similar series But it is fee,
