Terry Pratchett has created an intriguingly unpredictable universe! His wit is perfect and unexpected - I enjoyed every minute of it!
Fantastic story with some familiar faces. Longer than many in the series but not plodding so. If you enjoy other books in the series, this is at the top of the list. It also stands alone, perhaps more so than many. The reading is well done with quite a variety of consistent accents. Not all of them wowed me, but they did the job. The recording did justice to the text.
If you want people to review the books, why do you force limitations on them.
I recommend the book, especially to my fellow Postal Service employees. Teeheehee
I've had yet to find a Terry Pratchett book that I like better than "Monstrous Regiment." But this one comes the closest. A wonderful story of a conman who finds purpose. Thoroughly enjoyed all characters. And a top notch voice artist who brings it all to life.
I'm just a pixelated guy.
This was my first time with Terry Pratchett. When he passed away, Brandon Sanderson wrote a blog entry about him and recommended a few books for getting hooked.
I was amazed at the incredible characters that lived in this story. The humor is very clever. I humbly submit my application to be a Terry Pratchett fan.
I'm an older, experienced listener. Audiobooks are an important part of my life...
something to smile about every couple of minutes, with wryly accurate observations about everything imaginable.
Pratchett brings his best to the story, the performance delivers as expected. A must listen! You'll be able to enjoy without reading other Discworld novels, though having read them will make this even funnier.
However I love these books. I wish that Briggs would put more effort into his pacing as well as the voices. He reads everything so quickly it feels like he's just rushing through the story to get to dialogue. Then he rushes through that as well. I liked Nigel Planer as the narrator.
That being said this is a great read. I highly recommend it for the content.
