    This book was amaz-balls! It was ridiculously over the top and hysterically funny. I don’t know why people are bitching about how crass it is or how they can’t take the raunchy sex jokes. What were they expecting? A well manicured period piece, eloquently told about a queen’s majestic rule over her kingdom? Off with those peoples’ heads! It was meant to be over the top and it was. It was full of cliched jokes, overly used stereotypes and awkward puns. That’s what made it so funny. It was pretty This book was amaz-balls! It was ridiculously over the top and hysterically funny.

It was full of cliched jokes, overly used stereotypes and awkward puns. That’s what made it so funny. It was pretty much exactly what I was expecting and it was fabulous! The production itself was really well done too. This full cast production is star studded and dotted with original songs and sound effects. Kate McKinnon outdid herself as the queen. This was one of the most entertaining things I’ve listened to in a long time. 5 stars

    “I am a psychopathic tyrant with the kingdom on my shoulders” Immature story for mature audiences. Loved this! If you need to laugh and just forget the rest of the world this was great!

    Very hilarious comedy audio play, and it seems like part of a new genre that is forming. What can Heads Will Roll be compared it to? Kind of like the classic Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers Guide radio series, but medieval comedy like Monty Python. But, like modernly updated. A stellar cast with Kate McKinnon as the evil queen, and the bird girl is a treat, not to mention fellow SNLer Alex Moffat as Odin. There are skits with Peter Dinklage, the Fab Five, and more!

And, amazingly, Meryl Streep. The world of this Disney-esque kingdom with a dark edge makes just enough sense to work (that is, not that much sense, as it should be). So many fantasy tropes satirized, as well as some political takes and more among all the many skits. I also liked the weird commercials peppered around. I'd definitely like to see more of what Audible can do with this new storytelling medium of uncensored "radio" dramas. Lastly, Warning: extremely dirty jokes herein. You better be into such to enjoy.

    Total Disappointment. I pre-ordered the audibook due to the list of A-List cast members involved and the reputation of that of Kate McKinnon as a comedic superstar. When you pre-order you are not given a sample to listen to before purchase and therefore I had no idea what a mess this book was going to be. I was confident in the many talented people that were involved to deliver a very amusing and entertaining production. That wasn't the case.

I was confident in the many talented people that were involved to deliver a very amusing and entertaining production. That wasn't the case. I read a few positive reviews that praised the audiobook but I notice most of those reviews were all of two sentences. Where as the negative reviews were more than a few sentence and all touching on what I agree was a bad SNL skit that went on too long. Or better yet it was like some teens High School production for the talent show that just didn't fly. There were no laughs on my part and the story was all over the place and bit hard to follow or even care about any of the characters. Lots of Yelling and just being crude for the sake of being crude. I don't mind crude as long it actually makes the material entertaining. This was not that. Of course with a star cast of talent the performers were good and the production was well done and the original music was surprisingly enjoyable. It just failed in telling a worthwhile story and lacked laughs. I think I SALTS (smiled a little then stopped) maybe once in Chapter 2. I listened to "Harry Clark" original audible book and laughed out loud from the start and then some but it wasn't even trying that hard and yet delivered. Heads Will Roll tried way too hard and it showed. My advice is to read ALL the reviews at Audible.com and not just the good ones to help you make up your mind if this is something you find worth purchasing. Everyone has a different humor level and thus making it subjective.

    This was a great listen, funny, raunchy and balls-out funny. Did I say funny? The performance was so wonderful and funny though the story brings the rating a bit down it was more about the performance. Heads did indeed roll and in 10 chapters wonderful Kate McKinnon brought so many wonderful people together for a wonderful performance which isn't a book but a recorded play.

Maybe someday I would get to see it I heard Broadway Video so where's the video of this performance? People who don't read generally ask me my reasons for reading. Simply put I just love reading and so to that end I have made it my motto to just Keep on Reading. I love to read everything except for Self Help books but even those once in a while. I read almost all the genre but YA, Fantasy, Biographies are the most. My favorite series is, of course, Harry Potter but then there are many more books that I just adore. I have bookcases filled with books which are waiting to be read so can't stay and spend more time in this review, so remember I loved reading this and love reading more, you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading.

    I’m a pretty big Kate McKinnon fan so I really enjoyed seeing the vastness of her creativity. She literally oozes it. When I wasn’t listening, I was thinking about it, so that’s a plus in my book. It gets raaaaaather raunchy so that’s why I’m only giving it 3 stars. I liked all of the satirical humor about our current world/politics and the SNL and GOT spoofs. I loved hearing some of my favorite people voice these characters. The sirens were hilarious, thanks FAB 5. Overall, I enjoyed it and kep I’m a pretty big Kate McKinnon fan so I really enjoyed seeing the vastness of her creativity. She literally oozes it.

    I gave up after 20 minutes and for the first time ever, I went back to Audible and requested a refund. I wish there was a way to give this -1 stars. It's like a really, really bad SNL sketch that just wouldn't end. The affected accents are awful, the language is "totally" valley girl, the attempts at political satire are weak, and the humor never rises above the second grade level. Makes me seriously question ever picking up an Audible Original again. I gave up after 20 minutes and for the first time ever, I went back to Audible and requested a refund.

    I rated this three stars because the performance was excellent—what a talented cast! The story itself? Meh. I guess I’m too old for sex and fart jokes (but I do find “My dad wrote a porno” hilarious!). Maybe in a different mood it would be funnier? Ah well.

    This is pretty bad. I really wanted to like it as some light fare to simply turn the brain off to. Really. It just didn't work. Besides the weak plot, the anachronisms are just too off-putting. You are allowed to take some liberties in a fictionalized comedy world. However, if you want to build a medieval-like world, you might want to research a bit about how it worked - even for a comedic take on it. But it's also like they have no clue about how our own society works either. Compare this to Mo This is pretty bad. I really wanted to like it as some light fare to simply turn the brain off to.

Compare this to Monte Python and the Holy Grail; the parking lot scene at the end of the latter was a big wink that they got it. Even the improv podcast Hello from the Magic Tavern did a better job at the comedic medieval-world shtick.

    This was so much fun! It’s just a funny, satirical episodic tale about an evil queen and her cursed raven minion. I had a great time and really I enjoyed every minute of this Audible read. It was a little short, but it was filled with a great cast of voice actors. Can’t say enough about how much I really enjoyed this.

    What to say about this project? I don't even know how to denominate it, but calling it a musical, a soap-opera, a short story written in parts/chapters, all sound more accurate than calling it a book. Ah, just read the GR description and it writes "this is not an audiobook -it's a 10-episode, star-studded, audio comedy." Well, there you have it, that's what it is.

I jumped into Heads Will Roll with just one thought in mind: "This will be a trip!" and it did not disappoint. Who doesn't love Kate McKinnon? Please don't answer that, the point is if you enjoy her work, this will be another good one to add to the list. To be honest, I did not know about her sister Emily Lynne, now after this, I can say that she is also funny and has a beautiful voice. To summarize it my way, imagine your typical kid's story about kingdoms, gods and royalty and their detachment to reality and the commonfolk ways of living. Now imagine that again but with an injection of humor, music and a pinch of lewdness, this is definitely not material for the most sensible of people. Heads Will Roll is as all over the place as it gets, it's hilarious, still finding the time to get some current issues and similitudes with our realities in. You will find stuff from power thirsty leaders to witty remarks about certain Correspondents' Dinner, etc. Also the participation of some great people such as Meryl Streep, Tim Gunn, Peter Dinklage, Queer Eye's Fab Five, Andrea Louise Martin, Alex Moffat and more. If you love Kate McKinnon, enjoy smart humor, don't mind some inappropriateness and want to get surprised by the beautiful voice of Emily Lynne, this one's for you 😋 Ah, and if you don't mind people staring at you while you laugh out loud or if you happen to be at home listening without headphones and you have a judgemental sister, then this one's for you!

This kept me laughing, upbeat and ready for any curve balls United scheduling & thunderstorms threw at my group & I. Kate McKinnon & all the cast are full of raunchy good fun.

    Heads Will Roll is great stuff. I see everyone is commenting on its raunchiness, but I didn't find it to be offensive at all. The story is frolicsome and ridiculous. The voice acting and musical numbers are magnificent. The piece really shines in the commercials and the deep snark of some of the side stories. There is latent political commentary too. Anyone who appreciates Kate McKinnon's humor will simply love listening to this. Heads Will Roll is great stuff.

    So I actually kind of loved this. It was not so much as book, it was more like a show with only the audio. It had a full cast, sound effects, songs, etc. My favorite was the "commercials" between scenes that were just plain hilarious...like "too many muses taking up space on your lawn, waiting to inspire artists? Try Musinex!" So many more that were both silly and clever. I laughed SO MUCH with this book, not just little chuckles but out loud cracking up laughing.

My favorite character was probably Jojo, the cursed princess living as a raven. But like, it's totally fine. She falls in love with a Crow...named Russell. I also loved the 72 year old bard sisters who were basically like narrators and definitely NOT virgins. The main reason I gave this 3 stars despite liking it a lot was that it was pretty vulgar and raunchy, a little too much for my tastes at times. That being said it was really really funny and actually a really good story too. The characters were really memorable, the story kept me wanting to know what was going to happen, and I'm totally gonna have some of the songs stuck in my head for a while.

    Fun little series - I'm down for pretty much anything Kate McKinnon makes. Turns out she's a really terrific voice actress. This series was a great introduction to her sister, too. She actually had the more laugh-out-loud funny character, I thought, as she savaged millennials with her upspeak and identity-struggle parody. The writing was witty, and it did a great job setting up little moments of hilarity.

I feel like I want to replay it right away. And I just might. This audiobook is perfect. It’s so f***ing funny. I loved Kate to begin with, so I was prepared to love this audiobook. I think I loved her sister more in this, actually. The concept of this 10-episode tale was amazing. The story’s actually interesting, but the puns. It’s pretty much a long SNL skit with the best actors out there. Also, the story’s being told by Two non-virgin story-tellers with no more than 3 cats and they were just laugh-out-loud funny :D (It’s not like we can’t physically spend time apart or can’t fall asleep if our feet aren’t touching. No, no! We’re not virgins! :D) Now, obviously, that Queer Eye parody was my favorite part. “You guys are so nice! Is this like... for a show?” There are so many quotes I’d like to use right now to show you how hilarious this drama/skit/audio story is. Too many, I’d basically have to write down the entire script :D this audio is a parody of EVERYTHING. I will gladly go back and listen again and I’m sure I’ll adore it as much if not more. If you need some laughter in your life, go ahead and listen. You won’t be disappointed. And I mean. Meryl Streep’s role was priceless. That all-female reboot of 12 angry kings :D

    I was really really looking forward to this. I preordered it because i couldn’t wait to listen, but life got in the way and I started later than I had hoped. I wanted to love it but I really hated it. It was just over 4 hours - very short - and it took me over a week of forcing myself to listen to it. It had potential for satire and mirth but it was so blisteringly unfunny. I made notes. I laughed exactly two times. Andrea Martin defeating the Sirens was the heartiest laugh of the two.

It was the kind of humor an 11 year old boy would find funny. Lots of witty setups and then it just goes for the middle school “she said pussy” jokes. I actually looked up the policy for returning a book to Audible for the first time in my 14 year membership. I do not understand the high ratings on this. When I got to the oh-no-is-there-a-sequel ending I just groaned. A few good things: The production was well done. The cast was mostly great at delivering the material given to them. Again - Andrea Martin has been comedy gold since little kid me watched her on SCTV in the early 80s. The theme song is on a never ending loop in my brain. They were *this close* to some really biting satire that almost made me chuckle. The going for cheap laughs just killed it.

    I love Kate McKinnon and I was really hoping this would be as funny and satirical as it was promoted to be. Spoiler - it wasn’t. I’ll admit, it probably isn’t my kind of humour, but even so I thought Heads Will Roll was poor. The humour throughout was entirely based on two things: toilet humour (ie fart jokes) and anachronisms (isn’t it so hilarious that this is set in the Middle Ages but we’re talking about memory foam mattresses!!!). There was no sophistication about the humour - most people grew I love Kate McKinnon and I was really hoping this would be as funny and satirical as it was promoted to be. Spoiler - it wasn’t.

There was no sophistication about the humour - most people grew out of toilet humour after second grade. And the anachronistic humour is an obvious gag that can get a laugh once or twice but doesn’t sustain over 10 episodes. It’s just the same joke over and over again. The humour is never clever, and the language was irritatingly tacky throughout. The characters, like, totally talked, like, you know, the most stereotypical, you know, and annoying, like, teenagers ever, you know, you guys? I was so disappointed with this - it was immature, it constantly took the easy and obvious way out and never tried to live up to its potential.
