Description

The first official novel from Game Grumps

Listen up, kid. My name is Dr. Cecil H.H. Mills. I’m the author of this book and many other ones that you might not have heard of. This book is about two idiot wannabe detective-types. Their names are J.J. and Valentine Watts, but I’m not sure if they’re actually brothers or not.

They make a friend; her name is Trudi de la Rosa. She’s a wannabe detective-type too, but honestly, she’s less of an idiot than the brothers.

The three of them team up to solve a mystery that takes place in a snowy chateau up in the mountains. It gets more complicated around chapter 11, but now you’ve got the main gist of it. The story’s full of intrigue and adventure and puzzles and light violence and some swear words. It’s really entertaining.

Just buy the book and start listening. You’ll understand everything about the Ghost Hunters Adventure Club very soon.

Arin Hanson is amazing

Obviously Dr Cecil H.H. Mills isn't real. The whole thing was written and read by Arin Hanson; his voice acting is amazing! And the short novel is truly hilarious, suspenseful and gripping. 10/10 would recommend.

Loved it! ♡

I had a blast with this, Arin does such a good job with the voices of all the characters, I was enthralled the whole way through. A great listen! I really hope there’s more!

Superb voice acting and outrageously funny

This audiobook completely blew past all of my expectations. The voice acting was incredible, with each character having a distinct voice and personality. The comedy also had me howling with laughter at least once every chapter. The writing is very witty and I applaud whoever “Dr. Cecil H.H. Mills” really is (as well as Arin for his voice acting). Thank you for making the most entertaining audiobook I have ever listened to!

A wry pleasure

A delight! Sarcastic, meta, and well-paced. I regret not listening sooner. I hope we can expect a (reluctant) sequel from Dr. Mills.

a phenomenal book and an excellent listen

the book itself is a little out there it's crazy it's fun it's a blast to listen to. if you are a fan of The hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy series then you will absolutely love this book it has a very similar feeling to it. the voice actor himself is great he does an excellent job of all the different voices and really brings the characters to life. the visual details that they give are excellent and it really does play to the theater of the mind.

A new classic from the Doc

Arin.... I mean Dr. Mills writing and performance here is quite a refreshing experience. I recommend this if you can or can't read. However I would not recommend it if you cannot tap dance.

the perfect crime

For his first foray into young adult fiction, Dr. Mills deftly navigates the twists and turns of the mystery genre as seen through the eyes of his quirky, over eager characters, all with his trade mark wit and cynicism. A delightful page turner, which Dr. Mills supplies with his surprisingly dynamic and animated voice.

Gripping, a tour de force.

Dr. Cecil H.H. Mills astounds yet again by conquering the inhospitable wilds of the intellectual wasteland otherwise known as "young adult fiction," further cementing his reputation as the most brilliant and handsome author working today. And it is at this point that I am legally obligated to disclose that the esteemed author has had a restraining order against me ever since an unfortunate misunderstanding involving a beaver at a Denny's in Grand Rapids, MI circa 1992, but don't let that obfuscate the truth of Dr. Mills' heroic accomplishment in the field of youth-oriented adventure literature. The only thing more engrossing than his mastery of the written word is the charming timbre of his practiced oratory. I salute you, good sir, and would much appreciate it if you would retract your lawsuit compelling the State of Michigan to register me as a sex offender, as I find it terribly uncalled for and constitutes an undue burden on my ability to find gainful employment. Best regards, You Know Who.

Incredible experience of literature

Dr. Cecil H.H. Mills' nephew put me onto this masterpiece! Really couldn't understand his reservations about the book though....
Maybe he just feels like he might end up living in the shadow of his uncle's newfound literary prowess!
Very understandable.

I cannot wait for more.

Dr. Mills is a very talented author and narrator. I don't see why his nephew complains so much, but I am very glad he listened to his mother and helped Dr. Mills. This book is wonderfully crafted. It's meta humor is top notch. if you're looking for funny and mysterious this is the book for you.

Review (that word starts with an ‘R’)

It’s been so long since a book has made me laugh out loud. The wittiness and quip - not to mention the fact that it’s really just a well written cast and story - make this a very quick and enjoyable listen. If you’re familiar with the Game Grumps’ humor, think of this like a 4.5 hour episode at sustained, peak comedic performance. If you’re not familiar with what I’m talking about, boy you’re in for a treat. It’s well worth the $10, you’ll love it.

JJ and Valentine Watts are the two members of the Ghost Hunters Adventure Club. A dynamic duo sharp as a whip and quick as a tack (you read that right), they’re hired by an author who writes mystery novels and tasked with solving a ghost story at the isolated “Grande Chateau” hotel. Arriving in the midst of a weekend snowstorm, the boys hardly have a chance to start the case when everything blows up in their face. We meet an amusing spread of characters, each with comedic quirks and caricature-like qualities that make them hilariously distinct. Within minutes the story is thrust into a whirling mystery-on-mystery full of quick fire humor, fourth wall breaks by the audiobook’s arrogant “author”, and — of course — a painfully deep and relatable analysis of the human condition by none other than said author, Dr. Cecil H. H. Mills himself (at least... according to him).

The performance of this book is on another level. I’ve finished around 75 audiobooks through audible and this is for sure in the top 5 narrations I’ve heard. There are no production bumps, skips or volume issues that I was able to notice. Overall, the story is great fun and is one of those I could see myself listening to again.

Fun YA mystery

Somewhere between a cynical Scooby Doo and Goonies mystery lies this book. The 4th wall breaking was a bit much at the beginning but became charming. You will probably have a better grasp of the humor and tone changes (literally) if you are aware of the author's non-literary work. Had a good time and hope for more.

A fun listen, especially for those who have read Hardy Boys and other teen mystery solving books

I really liked this, I’m sure I add nothing new to what has already been said, but I enjoyed wholeheartedly the way Dr. Cecil H.H. Mills parodied the genre of teen sleuth fiction, as a kid I loved reading Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, and this book brought me back to those old days with a good laugh at the scenarios that were questioned and acted out by the characters. I do have a question for Dr. Mills, about your nephew Arin Hanson, did you ever lend him and his friend some games, Nancy Drew and the White Wolf of Icicle Creek or Nancy Drew and the Ghost of Thornton Hall? I assume you must be an avid collector to have written this novel and I wonder if you have these games. Alright review and question over :)
