Recording is old obviously digitized from another platform. Narrator was good though. story wise I would judge the author better than most, more imaginative than some and not boring
This is a good book that is only bad relative to his other books. It just seems off to me somehow compared to his other works. Narrator is wonderful. I do recommend but I more strongly recommend mort or equal rights (you don't need to read them in order)
I was already a fan of this story. This audio book manages to lose nothing in terms of the feeling from the book.
My first discworld audio book.
The content I found hilarious, witty, and brilliantly put together. However, the performance was technically impaired. The tintinabulations every few minutes came through my car audio at uncomfortably loud levels, and there were frequent changes in audio tone and volume. This gave the impression of being recorded in segments at different studios with different volume levels, on different equipment.
Nigel Planer does a good job of the voices. However, he does seem to get pressure of speech quite a lot, and hurries on when it might be better to slow down a bit and let the story unfold.
This would have been fine, if the bells had been cut out of it (or reduced a lot in volume) and the audio quality had been more consistent. It is unacceptable to be selling audio books with poor audio quality like this, in the 21st Century.
Nigel Planer was always the actor who wold be ideal for playing Rincewind. He does a good job on all the other voices in this tale. The various footnotes are nicely done as well.
There seems to be a couple of glitches in the sound, otherwise top marks all round.
Anyone who hasn't read/heard this before should give this brilliant story a go. If you've read it, listen to this!
Pam can often be found singing many of The Wiggles songs while simultaneously reading a book in rhyme and drinking coffee.
I love this story but just like everyone else said, the quality is poor. And weird. Please remake this with better audio!
Enjoyed the narrator and Pratchett always makes me laugh.
