The production quality is a bit shoddy. Briggs is fabulous, the mixing is not. I really enjoyed the story, though, as usual.
Great story. Horrid audio, as Audible advises. But the story outweighs the poor audio. With the listen. one of the best discworld stories.
Great story by Pratchett, fantasy/comedy hybrid for a great book. I'm somewhat partial to pratchett as I've always loved his work but the narator can kill a book in audio format. Briggs brings it home nicely.
If you like fantasy adventure books I'd recomend this as well as the rest of the watch storyline from Pratchett's discworld series, look for briggs on naration!
I simply cannot get used to Briggs' narration style. He manages to speed read the entire book. Pauses are not his forte but shouting angrily is. His style exhausts me.
If you've listened to any of the Discworld audiobooks, you know Stephen Briggs. He IS the voice(s) of Discworld. My problem with this recording is its uneven nature. Volume shifts between chapters, sometimes it sounds like the sound is far away from the speaker. It's like someone held up a microphone to a tape recorder, so what we get is second-hand, at best. I expect more from Audible.
its one the best books in series. Stephen Briggs is amazing as a narrator. But the quality of recording is poor.
same book downloaded via audible.de has better quality of sound
Recent college grad enjoying the chance to listen to and read what she wants for the first time!
If you like Discworld and Sam Vimes then this is the book for you! A delightful romp through his past and present. This audio recording isn't ideal, but it was not difficult to listen and the story was so gripping I honestly stopped noticing after the first bit. Would recommend!
