Publisher's Summary

Ever since Master Gunnery Sergeant Fick came blitzing out of nowhere in Maximum Violence (Arisen, book 4), he has emerged as the closest thing to a consensus fan favorite character for the series. He is best known and most beloved for his ribald, profane, merciless, and generally hilarious insults, quips, and bon mots, which are so characteristic that listeners have affectionately dubbed them: Fickisms.

Now, in response to popular demand, and collected here for the first time, are all the very best tidbits of Fick's wit and wisdom, from all 14 main series books.

And thrown in as an extra special bonus, you can also enjoy the most priceless lines from both Predator, and Aliyev the Kazakh.

Wit. Wisdom. And Magic Marker Dicks.

Not for me

I like the series, but this isn't for me because it has no storyline to it. I thought it was going to be a short story, but in truth, it’s just Fick's comments. It was a true shit sandwich, so since I don’t need to take a bite, I’ll past on it.

Great One Liners

This book is all one liners from Pred, Juice, Olyev and of course Fick.
Love all the one liners from these great charters in the Arisen series.

Was great to hear from Fick again.

I enjoyed this and learnt some new sayings that I may or may not be able to share at work!! Thanks for some fun in this dark and dreary time.

Boooo, Why did I get this book?

Because I love the series? But this is not worth anything, it doesn’t add or clear up anything in the series, it just a bunch of one liners with no purpose or meaning. Total waste of money and time, and makes me look side-eyed at Mr Fuchs.
So I hope he makes up by starting a new series with one of the many wonderful characters all while he gets the Netflix series off the ground. My vote for leading man is Liev Schreiber from the Showtime series Ray Donavan.

Hilarious!

Even if you haven’t listened to a single book in the series, this book is still beyond funny!

Hilarious Vulgarity

This series is nonstop action… But it is salted with incredible humor. Salty humor, the type of humor you only hear in the Marine Corps.

OK… Maybe the army and navy… But I wasn’t in those services.

This was free on Audible for a while… I think I’m going to actually end up buying it. I expect my language will go way downhill after that. But I hope to use some of this stuff next Thanksgiving.

I can’t wait to see grandma’s reaction.

Laughed so hard I peed a little😊

This is gonna be listened to ALOT.
Made me want to start the whole lot over again. A warm cozy sweater.
Pleased
to hear the donation from the book. Maybe a Uk listener, but that’s amazing support.
Just buy it people, it’s worth it for the belly laughs and the donations. One of my best buys ever.
