It can be hard coming down from Douglas Adams. Not knowing where to turn after the simple and humorous practicality of Adams' perspective.
Neil filled the void, for me at least, with a very similar perspective of smile truths portrayed entertainingly. While this didn't expand the philosophy in my mind (not much there to expand really), it did continue the fun in a new light. It's like reading just another personal development book and realizing it says the same damn thing the last one you read had to say, but is somehow just as life changing, or influencing as the last seemed.
In any case, fun, happy feelings coming from a beautifully read story. Thank you...
Pratchett and Gaiman managed to use their uniquely illogical logic to make a madcap story which is both hilarious and thought-provoking.
Martin Jarvis is a great narrator. Not only does he have an easy-to-listen-to voice but he takes obvious care with the story and really brings it to life.
Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman have harmoniously constructed a beautiful novel that is as enchanting as it is funny. The clever way they've twisted mythology into narrative is entertaining and provocative. The characters are wonderfully affable and the story is engaging. This is a great read on its own and the spectacular narration makes it even better.
Absolutely everything. He has an amazing knack for accents and the variety he achieves in intonation with all the different characters is remarkable. He's the best performer I've listened to with Audible as of yet.
Do yourself a favor and listen to this audiobook.
If you're a fan of the Douglas Adams series, you'll love this whimsical take on the end of days.
Absolutely love the dry humor throughout, you know what you're getting right off the bat. And get it still manages to have. A message about the nature of morality and religious fervor. Loved it.
Fantastic audiobook and novel. My first experience of Terry Pratchett, as it happens. Big Neil Gaiman fan. The narration is brilliant and the voice characterisations and pacing are perfect. Several laugh out loud moments made me look very strange on the train!
Oh. My. God. Is. This. Book. Boring.
I only listened to it all the way through because I spent one of my precious credits on it. I can say that it is indeed the most boring, uneventful book I have ever listened to, every minute of it.
The narrator was good at least.
