I began the Disc World series with 'I Shall Wear Midnight', which follows the adventures a young witch or "hag" named Tiffany Aching. Since, I have been completing other Disc World novels with the same character and I just can't get enough. Terry Pratchett's stories are not only hilarious but also parrallel real life conflicts we may have encountered with society or even conflicts we may have struggled with ourselves. So in a humorous way, there is always something to learn. Listening to Pratchett's audio books was incredibly easy and was so entertaining that I preferred to listen to his novels rather than watch television. The narrarator is so incredibly talented that I could even call him " a one man show". I felt completely immersed in the novel as another character through the narrator's spectacular acting. These are amazing stories from an amazing author with an amazing narrator. Terry Pratchett, although recently departed from this world, has left behind a legacy that will forever stay in our hearts and minds.
I wish I could afford to buy all the books at once! Yet another thrilling adventure with Tiffany Aching and her companions. I'm not sure how she manages not to slap the daylights out of Annagramma, but she is a bigger person than I.
I could probably have only the four (soon to be five!) Tiffany Aching books read by Stephen Briggs on my ipod and just cycle endlessly through them, never getting tired of them and always learning a little more about human nature, taking care of people, and being a decent soul. This one is perhaps the most insightful about human myth-making-----but no, I love them all and cannot choose a favorite!
The story and performance were wonderful. one thing that could be done without, though, were the musical interludes which never matched the mood of the scene and were generally distracting
The third installment of the Tiffany Aching saga is as brilliant as the first two, The Wee Free Men, and Hat Full of Sky. The only thing that makes Terry Pratchett books better is Stephen Briggs's outstanding narration. In this story, Tiffany learns the ups and downs of "Boffo" and the strength of myth. Definitely a family favorite!
Awesome, classic Pratchett. 4 stars for performance due to bad soap opera-esque music... (why even have it? it makes the story cheap)... and disappointed that the Wintersmith sounded exactly like the Auditors. Come on Briggs! other than that, i loved it. And i would say it's definitely not just for kids.
