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.
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.
