Story is good, narration is great, audio quality is subpar.
Even death needs a break from the dying. Love is suffering and even that can't escape death's clutches.
I read this book in paperback when I was younger and I could just not put it down. Listening to Nigel's narration brings the characters to life and gives the story a very satisfying feeling.
if you like a good laugh and great story you must read or and listen to this book. I do recommend completion get the series :)
I have only listened to "comedy" fiction once before, and I prefer that performance a lot more than this one. Simply put, I dislike it because all characters have goofy voices while I think I'd enjoy it more if they had normal voices. The material is funny but the performance and the quality ruined it for me. I plan on refunding this audiobook even though I'm interested in the novel itself.
The sound quality is pretty bad too. It must've been recorded with something ancient.
The story is about the character Death. It is very clever and very funny throughout the book.
The performance was great. I was able to distinguish almost all the different character voices the narrator used. I only wish the audio quality was a bit better it was really hard to hear at times. Had to crank the volume all the way up.
This was the best book I've listened to in a long time. The only downside was that it made me late for work twice, because I couldn't make myself turn it off and go inside!
Classic Pratchett, the personification of death is one of the main characters, more puns than you can shake a loud groan at and a taste for the tongue in cheek. The readers voice work is very good. However, it takes a hit as a result of the poor quality of the recording. it's not unbearable just rather sounds like it's echoing through a tin can on the end of string stretching all the way from Discworld.
