Monstrous Regiment is another Terry Pratchett stunner. I wasn't sure about the book initially because I hadn't strayed far from the witches books or the watch books, but I got into it quickly. What I HATED was the music. Please never put music in audio books. Very, very bad decision. Sometimes I drift off to sleep while listening to audio books. Not this one. The music was jarring. I buy an audiobook to listen to the story. I buy music to listen to music.
I loved the women-in-a-man's-world theme. Loved the characters, especially Igorina.
Down with music interspersed within the narration of audio books.
I'm actually a day old tart, filled with maple custard. Perhaps, this reads as a rational introduction to others, and you are deliberately misreading it, because, come on, maple custard.
I LOVE this book! My first Pratchett, made me a total addict! Hilarious! If you like Monty Python, Neil Gaimen, or Douglas Adams, I recommend these books.
If you haven't read/heard Pratchett, do yourself a favor and get one. There are many to choose from, and if you like one you're in for a lot more fun.
Best storyteller and the best person to give voice to his work. Stephen Brigs breathes life into the Discworld.
Practically Pratchett-Perfect in every way. Time we met an Igorina, too. Satisfying to the socks;)
I am not listening to the books in order, but it is not necessary. You meet the same characters as meeting old friends, happy to know what's going on with them at the moment...
Terry Pratchett was (and because we all read his books still is) a great genius.
