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.
I have read most of the Discworld books but wanted to revisit and decided to try the Audible version. Whether you are new to the Discworld or re-visiting these Audible narrations by Nigel Planer are OUTSTANDING! I can't recommend them/him enough.
The different accents were so distinct and so consistent...you always knew who was "talking" in the book by his great execution.
He needs to do more books outside of this series
Avid listener and huge enjoyer of stories.
It's a classic Sam Vimes story by Pratchett.
As with all of Pratchett's work, there's an underlying moral delivered to us gift wrapped in satirical goodness.
Having listened to Stephen Brigg's presentation of these characters, I can't help but feel that Planer missed the essence of these personalities.
The story and narration are suburb, however the audio quality is hit or miss. Often times it is full, warm sound, then you change chapters and it sounds like an old telephone call from the 1980's. It's still worth a listen.
