The narrator is excellent, and the author's lanugage is delightful. I first checked this book out from the library many years ago on audio tape! I missed it when tapes no longer were realistic. Having a digital copy of this rocks.
Yes. If I were audible, I'd remaster the original audio to clean out the dull sound quality. Nigel Planer is too good a narrator to waste on poor audio quality.
Yes, but I seldom get them because so many have the same audio problem.
Planer *is* the characters he portrays. (I was pleased to see that the BBC cast him in their adaptations of Pratchett's books. I hope it was because of his role in helping create the feeling of Pratchett's Discworld.)

I loved the whole book
I love that I can recognize his characters from book to book.
I have read Small Gods several times. I would listen, again, just as I may read it again.
Pyramids by Terry Pratchett. His most popular books take place in Ankh-Morpork, but these "stand-alones" are little gems that really show his power as an author.
I like Nigel Planer's Discworld. To me, he is to Discworld what Jim Dale is to Harry Potter. He hits the right tone and sounds like what I thought the characters should sound like. I read all the books before every listening to any, and was very pleased with Planer.
Nothing particular. The whole book is great and Brother is a perfect character.
This is my favorite Pratchett book.
OK but not Pratchhett's best. However, I must admit to chortling every time I heard, "there's good eatin' on one those."
I loved the examination of what some will worship and the twist in people's natures to believe it! Pratchett has a magic way of poking at people's naive and unquestioning belief in what they are told to and how that one special person can throw a wrench in it. Wonderfully witty!
I not only am willing but desperate to try others! He is one of my favs.
The turtle and his crankiness and the newest prophet to the flock.
No, several sittings, but this just makes it even better.
Everyone needs to laugh. You don't need any background in the Disc World to enjoy this story. It is close enough to our world to have a relevant point as well as just being an entertaining story.
Great characters, great story, great way to get into the Disc World.
Laughed out loud.
Awesome reading. Nigel Planer no longer reads the audiobooks for Pratchett, but this, I think, was his masterpiece and I am very glad it hasn't been redone.
Usual wonderful funny and wild stuff from discworld series,a delight! Gods definitely have human failings in this book.
I have enjoyed these books for years and found the readers voices grating and off putting. He makes most of the characters sound either dull or with a head cold.
