Pratchett is my favorite author, bar none. His turns of phrase and deep characterization give you a real sense of being there in all his Discworld novels.
Nigel Planer brings his acting talent full on in all his readings, and gives each character the life that Pratchett intended when he wrote about them.
Any Discworld book is worth listening to. I have them all, and have listened to many more than once. Best purchases I ever made.
Yes, Guards, Guards came first. But, this is where the cast of characters really comes together to form The Watch.
Please Audible, Remaster this recording! But keep the Narrator!
Awesome, captivating, hilarious story undermined by old recording that goes in and out and sound like your underwater from time to time..
This appears to be an old recording made up of small sections. Overall, the voice performance is good, but the sound quality varies.
Only if you enjoy fantasy, humor, interesting characters, action and mystery, read by a bard.
The uneven production values mentioned by others are minimal, and won't interfere with enjoying this "episode" of the City Watch, where important events and character details unfold. If you're a Discworld fan, you'll want this one. As always, Nigel Planer brings things to colorful life.
The book is great, and the performance is wonderful, but the audio recording is terrible. it becomes very difficult to comprehend what the orator is saying on several occasions.
