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.
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.
1/3 of our group is a huge fan, so this is biased, but this is also the second time reading this story and it still makes me smile.
I'm not going to write a full blown review other than, if you like a humorous satirical story then this is a good one to check out.
The audio quality of this story was continually changing party way into the book. it seemed like every twenty minutes they moved the tape deck they were recording from to a different location.
Christian ordained pastor. Love fantasy and historical books.
Everything by Pratchett is great and so is this book. Wonderful reading but unfortunately an old recording.
loved the story, so many things That I won't share because, "spoilers!". If you can endure the audio quality going in and out very few chapters, buy it!
A great story with a great narrator, but it sounds like it was ripped from a irregularly worn set of cassettes found in a library's giveaway bin. I really wish Isis Audio had taken better care of its masters.
Due to the age of the recording, there is a lot of hiss. And it could use to be remastered as the levels change dramatically when switching from one recorded segment to another. The story is as great as ever and only makes me miss Pratchett more. Such a great mind and wit.
