Pratchett's observations on human nature are sometimes considered comical. I guess. More often than not, however, they are simply true, and the bald truth elicits surprised laughter. Listen and learn.
I consider this the best of one of my favorite authors. A fun, gritty time traveling adventure in Ankk Morpork. But,as usual, there is much more than meets they eye here. Through his fantasy Sir Terry provides incredible insight into the challenges of policing and society.
This should be a must read in today's discussion of policemen's role in society, and how much physical violence is appropriate in keeping the peace. Just brilliant.
I have listen to this book three times and the magic of it never fades.
The Internal conflict of Sam Vimes and the bittersweet revolution is what really makes this story.
The final scene in the graveyard is humorous, philosophical, and bittersweet all at once with none of the elements overriding the others.
Yes and I cried at the end.
The stealth puns.
Great story and good narrator but the quality of the recording was sub par. It would be great if a better quality recording could be uploaded but it seems that the problem may be with the original recording and not an issue with format conversion.
I find fresh enjoyment every time I revisit the DiscWorld. Stephen Briggs is the best reader of the series I have ever heard. My only wish is that the quality of the recording were slightly better, but I suspect my technology rather than Audible is to blame. Love the Vines books!
Excellent book but the audio quality leaves something to be desired. I'm surprised as I've listened to it previously from another source and I swear it was the same recording.
