Anyone who loves Victor Hugo's Les Miserables should absolutely read this. Half-satire, half-action adventure, this is definitely one of my top 5 Pratchett books. And given the general awesomeness of Pratchett, that's saying a lot.
Though it's one of the later books in the Vimes series, I think it's a great jumping in point, because it takes us back to Vimes' roots. Not only his roots, but the roots of some of Discworld's most fabulous characters.
More Lord Vetinari, please!
the story and reader are both excellent, but for some reason all the discworld books sound like they were recorded on a portable cassette deck in a bus terminal bathroom.
It sounds like a recording of a recording; tinny, and varying in volume. The story, of course, is an excellent one.
I love the story and can listen again and again. The narration is great. The audio quality is inconsistent. Reissue would be nice
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.
