Why?? Why did the publisher feel it necessary to add the "zany", over-loud, distracting intro music to the tracks of this fabulous book? The music in no way harmonizes with the content of the novel and often plays over the narrator making it very difficult to understand the words. Every single time it came on I mentally cringed and tremble inwardly with annoyance. The person responsible for this travesty should be shot.
I love the main characters and their persistence and ingenuity.
I love this series, and have read most of them, and listened to many.
Not usually a fan of fantasy, but Terry Prachett's mix of absurdist action/drama monty pythonesque comedy and biting satire makes Discworld an absolute riot!
"Watching a dog try to eat a large piece of toffee is a pastime fit for the Gods."
These books always brighten up my day. Recommend the entire series, love the satire.
The reading is great, the story is wonderful, but every now and then random techno music plays. Sometimes it's at the end of a chapter, sometimes it's in the middle of one. It's always odd and always annoying.
I've always been a huge Terry Pratchett fan. So much, that when I got my first synthesizer on my 14th birthday, I made a "Terry P-Ratchett Beat" mix & sent him the tape! Imagine my delight when I listened to this recording & found that he put my beat in places where it would help progress the story! Well done!
Who better to entrust the City finances to, but a convicted felon! Rock on!
Only in Ank Mopork could the solution be so obvious.
