loved the story its a good funny read
The Wee Free Men
I love all the books in this series... the story is well written... you don't need to have read the last book to understand this one but it helps plus you will have fun listening to it...FYI i listened to it at work while entering non-stop-dull-data and i did have to keep from laughing a loud too much ...people were giving me funny looks down the hall ...
Yes, I would say the audio version is better than the printed version. Stephen Briggs is masterful! He knows how to bring the story to life. I was recommended this book by someone who felt the same way. Although I'm sure the book would be a good read, it just wouldn't be the same.
I have only listened to Stephen Brigg's performances on The Wee Free Men series that this book is a part of. I'm listening to the last book now, and have loved his performances and the stories of each of them. Fabulous!
Yes. In fact one of my favorite times to listen is when I'm traveling so I can listen in one go or close to it. I also like listening to them while running.
I would highly recommend this audiobook and the others in this series!
Delightfully twisted tale
Tiffany is a clever, complicated person without being perfect. She has problems, and makes mistakes but finds unexpected, educational, and entertaining ways to fix her problems.
Stephen adds the richness of his voice to Terry's creative story. His talent brings another level of life to the characters. I especially enjoy hearing his Scottish accent.
I laughed and cried. Terry always delivers surprises and twists that I dont expect.
Good book for adults and kids. Excellent themes for young people while keeping a level of story telling engaging enough for all readers.
At the top!
Imaginative story, great detail, easy to follow and unlike any other story.
Yes - the same - excellent performance; many silly voices!
One of the best children's books we've listened to .. a really fun book.
Oh Crivens! Too many to count.
It's very fun to follow the character of Tiffany Aching as she grows and discovers the complexity of the world around her. That, and the bee scene at the end.
Tiffany Aching dancing with a swarm of bees.
The Nac Mac Feegles.
Stephen Briggs' narration helps to bring all the characters to life, each with their own personality and voice.
I have listened to this book several times and I know I'll listen to it many more times in the future.
I love all of Terry Pratchett's books, but I'm particularly fond of this so-called children's series (at the ripe age of 50!). Terry Pratchett uses his mastery of the English language in very amusing ways. I often find myself laughing out loud when listening to his books. I particularly love the Nac Mac Feegles. Stephen Briggs does an excellent job of bringing these characters to life.
This excellent follow-up to The Wee Free Men, takes us on this next step of Tiffany's rocky climb to adulthood. At this point she's eleven years old with a questing mind an innate grasp of "headology" she's drawn the interest of something else, something afraid....
With it's biting humor and sharp insights into human nature this is another of Terry Pratchett's excellent dips in YA literature, well read by Stephen Briggs.
What a great book series! My sister gave me “The Wee Free Men” for Christmas and I was hooked. I think the Hat Full of Sky is just as delightful. The stories are interesting, humorous and good for both children and adults alike. This is one of those books you will listen to over and over again.
I had not read any of Pratchet's other Discworld novels, but had no trouble easing into Discworld through the straight-forward, clever and charming Tiffany Aching! My 11 year old son happened to hear me listening to this series in the kitchen the other day and immediately demanded I go back to the beginning so he could listen too. The NacMac Feegles provide both comic relief and brave examples for Tiffany and this is a wonderful book for children- all about following your dreams, to be sure, but also about all the hard work you need to put in to accomplish them as well as taking responsibility for what you do. If that makes the book sound preachy or moralistic, it isn't. Or if it has lessons to share, it wraps them in such good humor, hilarity and empathy that you barely notice. I have not read or listened to a heroine I've enjoyed as much as Tiffany in years. And the accents are absolutely stupendous!
