Experience the awesomeness of my unexpected voyage to an undiscovered land where I survive shipwrecks, arena death match spectacles, rampaging rhinoceraptors, naked and rather surly giants, and even dragons! Well, a dragon.... All in my pursuit of fame and glory.
Every word of it is true. Totally true. How do I know? Because it's all about me. Gustav Gustavson, Legendary Viking Warrior.

The Totally True Adventures of Gustav Gustavson: Legendary Viking Warrior was written by Morgan Hobbes. The narration is provided by Basil Sands. The audiobook is produced by Morgan Hobbs with a running time of 5 hours and 46 minutes. During that time you will get to hear the Amazing True Adventures of Gustav Gustavson. For me, this was a laugh out loud good time.
Gustav gives nods in the opening to other Great Viking Warriors that the listeners would be familiar with including Ragnar Lothbrook from History Channels Viking’s. Yet he insists his deeds are still the greatest. Losing his ship he ends up in a strange land where he is unknown. This is a shock for poor Gustav as he is sure his deeds are known far and wide. Things turn crazy and the fun really starts for the listener as the story really begins.
This audiobook held my attention thru the entire production. This is one of those rare productions that will have an effect on the audience where they either love or loathe the audiobook. For me, I was hooked. This book just grabbed me and I was thinking of the greatest elements of Monty Python and Mel Brooks in their prime. Politically correctness was not a valve to censor humor. Gustav is just one of those rare characters that is some much fun to follow on his adventures as he travels with this friends on their quest.
The narration by Basil Sands was interesting. Some people have really seemed to dislike his performance of Gustav. I really enjoyed. I think many people expect the Nordic Accent to be what is seen on television and movies. As someone who grew up in Minnesota and stayed until I was 30, the people with the last name of Gustavson sounded like the character. So that is my normalcy bias showing thru. The narrator did an excellent job with all the characters in the story. Each was given a unique voice. This was the first performance that I have heard from Mr. Sands but I truly enjoyed the work he did throughout the entire production. The publisher for this audiobook is Morgan Hobbs. The production value of this audiobook is excellent. The production value is of the highest quality. I heard no problems during the entire performance. There were not any detectable flaws that I was able to hear during the entire performance. I did not hear any loops, breaks, or buzzing. The production was crisp and clear.
