The weird echoing voice used for Death and the comments outside the narrative is kinda annoying at first. Once I got used to it, I enjoyed everything about this book.
Loved it, but I'm not a fan of the effects on Death's voice or the footnotes. If Death absolutely must have effects, you can do better than a cathedral with a sustain that lasts much longer than where it gets cut off so the next character can talk.
Nigel is a fine narrator, but I really wish Isis would do/license a re-recording. This ancient one I recognize from borrowing books on cassette from the library is a bit rough in places.

This is the beginning of the not-confusing Discworld books, I think. This is where Pratchett started to see what he was making and got down to doing it with greater purpose.
The narration uses an echo for certain characters which is very annoying. The volume changes frequently as though it was recorded in several different recording studios.
I love Terry Pratchett's Disc World Series. But don't, most definitely mix up the children's series with the adult's. Many questions will abound about "luscious melons" if you do and why it is not referring to fruit.
Great story, reasonable performance, hampered by ever-changing volume and tone levels. Sounds like it was poorly recorded on cassette, then transferred from tape to digital media. Could benefit from re-recording on 21st Century equipment able to maintain tone and quality of the audio.

This is a fantastically narrated story. Pratchett's writing is wild and irreverent and the literary equivalent to a Monty Python sketch.
Either Creosote or Hakardly. Of course, when in doubt, choose the luggage!
Creosote. Also the snake in the snake pit!
