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.
A friend recommended these books to me and suggested this particular book as the first. I loved the book and, for the first time ever, frequently thought About slowing down my playback because I found the humor and exceedingly well-crafted words flying by too fast for me to propery savor them. I settled for listening and stopping to write down my favorite lines.
Example: "The people who guard the rainbow don't like those who get in the way of the sun."
In honor of Sir Terry's transition I read again and of course saw more than last time!
