The book is fantastic. I like the writing an awful lot however that being said the reading of the book is very old I had to crank the volume while listening to it in my car almost all the way to Max to hear anything at all
Some books may be better written and genres differ. So I rate on how mush I enjoyed a book, I am not a book critic.
Yes, if you what, fun, fast passe fantasy, or need a imagination boost. You can't go wrong with Terry Pratchett.
Really...just one! There is no-one that keeps me smiling and wanting more, like mr. Pratchett.
"Reading overheats his mind, he should be a wizard, they read a lot."
He is perfect, the quality of the audio sounded 'old', but not so bad I would not listen to it every day.
Moved me to grinning like a idiot? All of it. Terry Pratchett does not think outside the box, he never got a box. Why can't they give this as a school book, my kids would love it and learn what is imagination.
It is a bit pricey for 7 and a half hours listening. I really want them all, but he does pack more into one book then most writers do in a series.
The narrator was wonderful, however the audio quality was inconsistent with large swings in audio volume between chapters. Additionally it sounded like the narrator was recorded through a foot of foam at times.
I like book when they are read... To me with different voices for all the characters... By a talented author. ~Haiku
I love Pratchett's take on the Sorcerer's Apprentice meets Death Becomes Her. Even reading his Discworld books out of order they are just plain old fun.
These audio books of Terry Pratchett's " Discworld" series are some of the most enjoyable things I have ever listened to! The just right mixture of comedy and drama is always spot on, and usually just what the doctor ordered! Nigel Planer's performance is absolutely beautiful ( he was "Neal" on " The Young Ones" for any fans of british comedy out there ) and perfect for the series! I cannot recommend this highly enough!
if you aren't familiar with discworld, I recommend, the colour of magic is a much better intro.
this book is decent, but I have found later books are much more clever.
I very much enjoy the web of interconnected stories throughout the discworld series.
I also much prefer the humor of Terry Pratchett to that of, say, Douglas Adams/ the hitchhiker series.
What more could you possibly need in a Discworld novel, unless perhaps Nigel Planer and Stephen Briggs started reading together. Perfect delivery.
Ah, Discworld. A world of a particular satire, sitting on a disc, resting on four elephants, who are standing on the back of a giant turtle, which is swimming through the universe. If you love fantasy, sarcasm, and wit, these are the books for you. If you don't like fantasy, but you like sarcasm and wit, these are the books for you. If you don't like fantasy, don't grasp sarcasm, and aren't much concerned for any wit but your own... Well... You'll always have the magazines at the drug store, and at any rate, there's nothing wrong with lighter reading.
