A brilliant instillation into the watch series. This book has it all. Time travel, rebellions, silly monks, and an insight into who Vimes' old Sargent really was. A great read for fans of the watch.
Excellent book. Really creative story. One of my favorite Terry Pratchett books. The reader was good, but the recording quality wasn't very good. It was good enough, but not nearly as good as it could have been.
Stephen Briggs must be a fan - he gets TP's writing in a way that other narrators do not. I always buy the books he has read and hope he goes back an re-records the ones that others have done.
This is one of my favorite Pratchett books.
Narration was excellent.
Audio quality is absolutely horrid, I cannot believe Audible charged me money for this.
it is all muffled/tinny, but each chapter is better or worse that the last, ch1 is tolerable ch2 is so muffled I have to turn it up, then next will be staticy like an old time radio broadcast.
I have my setting set to the highest and all the other books are ok but this ones audio quality is just horrid.
Audible needs to go back to Isis Audiobooks for a better copy.
more of Terry's brilliant satire
Deeper insight into what makes Vimes tick
Nigel Planner is whom we have grown to expect. The problem with Briggs is the constant pauses and breath catching that detracts from the story. His accents and voices are not good but do improve as the book moves along
no....this is a book you listen to small batches so you don't miss the insights and jokes
The story and Stephen Briggs are FANTASTIC.
If you like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, you'll love Terry Pratchett. Satirical humor at its finest.
I love anything with Lord Ventinari, and this book gives us a snapshot of his youth I very much enjoyed.
The lilacs. Tears.
The audio quality is dreadful. It had to have been converted directly from analog to digital with no kind of remastering, because you can hear the hiss of the tape and it only gets louder when the volume is turned up. I loved the story enough that I didn't care, but if that sort of thing bothers you, this is one to read instead of listen to.
This is one of the best Disk World books. Most of them are light comedy. This one has the comedy for sure, but also has a much deeper human story. I had to say wow when it was done. A very satisfying read. I will certainly be listening to it again.
Mr. Pratchett does it again. I love his quippy British flair and his sly humor
The book is great, good story, funny. Typical Terry Pratchett. The quality of this recording is awful. I'm upset I payed 30 bucks for it.
