John Hodgman, a correspondent for Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” presents his third compilation of odd invented facts, many of them centered around the coming end of the world, which he terms Ragnarok (after the Norse myth). The narration features Hodgman and numerous guests, including Rachel Maddow and Paul Rudd. When Hodgman interacts with his fellow narrators, their banter has an improvised feel to it. The humor is dry, in Hodgman’s deadpan style, and the facts are nonsensical and not in any discernible order. Sound effects are featured throughout. Hodgman fans who have read the first two books in the series will appreciate the brand of humor in this audiobook, though others may find it somewhat baffling when taken on its own.
