Every character is portrayed distinction. You never wonder who is speaking. Whether it's Death in his booming monotone, or the snarling amazement of an impressed Bogey-man. The story is bizarre and wonderful, with plenty of "modern" allusions in the hilarious comedy setting. Overall, Incredible Discworld book!
Pratchett's stories are fun even in text. They are even more fun in the voice of someone who knows how to find all the humor and all the pathos in each wildly imaginative character. This production is a happy joining of story and narrative voice. I'm proud to have it in my audio library.
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
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.
