I prefer Stephan Briggs' narration a lot more. He is able to get more and varied life into the characters. If they ever redo all of the Discworld books over with Briggs I will repurchase them
Whimsical, heartbreaking, bizarre, and lovely. Finished in one sitting. I may have cried from laughing and possibly from... not sadness but a familiarity with loss. It is good to make friends with DEATH, to put a face to the name if you will. I am grateful Sir Terry wrote this and that Mr. Planer did such a marvelous job performing it.
I have listened time and time again to this performance. It's humor is uplifting and so are the major themes. I listen to this every time I come upon adversity.
I own this book in print, and have read it multiple times. This is probably my favorite novel on the Disc. I highly recommend this audio version, the narration is enthusiastic, and pulls you into the story just as well as if you were reading it yourself.
This book is simply fantastic, and Nigel Planer brings it to life. The Discworld is amazing and this is yet another example of the brilliant writing we've come to expect.
