"Rincewind looked at the liquid in the cup. It had probably been clean before it was poured in, now drinking it would be genocide for thousands of innocent germs." so many amazing ways to look at the world.
Years ago, I took up audiobooks to make a long commute more tolerable. Now, I love how a good performance can enhance an already great book.
Didn't know what to expect. Loved it. Glad it wasn't terribly long, considering I've heard there's something like 40 books in the series!
Discworld is always worth the credit. Laugh out loud humor and spot on narration. The second set of misadventures of Rincewind and Twoflower are just as full of delightful wit and antics as the first set. Discworld is a hilariously written parody of a certain other scifi world. And very well done. Narration is perfect. Absolutely no complaints. It is one of the few series I will gladly read or listen to multiple times.
Vaguely aware of this series, it was only after finding out that a great literary master had sadly passed that I decided to find out what all the praise was about. Glad I took the plunge! Such a genius of contorting phrases and imaginative scenes, Terry Prachett brought new light to my literary repertoire. The fantastic use of language made me laugh out loud many times. I pressed rewind throughout to hear repeats of the witticisms and hilarity if plot and fantastic juxtaposition of characters. Amazing that incredulity could ultimately make such sense! Poetic doesn't sound right, but their is epic poetry in this adventure worthy of multiple hero's journeys!
I enjoy mostly classics, sci-fi, and sci-fi classics
after reading the first Discworld, this book is more of the same. Cute and clever, just nothing new. The routine gets a little stale after a while.
