Hi, everyone, and welcome to Thrown With Great Force.

Thrown With Great Force is a series of audio reviews hosted by Youtube, devoted to lampooning cheesy, badly-written, yet inexplicably popular young adult fantasy novels. As you’ve probably guessed by now, it’s in a similiar vein to other snarky internet critics like the Nostalgia Critic, Linkara, The Spoony One, and the Angry Video Game Nerd, but differs in that its subject matter is not a visual medium (though there are slideshows accompanying the narration to spice it up).

First up, of course, is Eragon. So far I’ve done three episodes, each around 13-14 minutes long, and split into two parts (because Youtube won’t host videos more than 10 minutes long). I’m almost a quarter of the way through the book. I originally intended to post one new episode per week, but a combination of extreme laziness and schoolwork has made living up to that deadline nigh impossible. However, once my exams are over (which they will be come the end of June) I’ll have tons of free time, which I plan to largely spend on this series, meaning I’ll finally be able to make updates as regular and consistent as wanted.

The series has a LiveJournal page here.

    The opening/closing music is what really makes it. ;-)
    Oh, and I can totally see the resemblance to Potter Puppet Pals as well.
