Narration and story line are excellent as usual. Just when you think you have the story figured out, and can tell what will happen next, you are pleasantly surprised. Excellent for binge listening.
Yes, Mr. Pratchetts works are funny and dense enough to almost always call for several readings/
It is right there with the first Tiffany Aching novel. Very well done.
Stephen Briggs is always a joy to listen to.
No, only because there is a lot going on and one should really sip, to taste it properly rather than gulp, and miss half the fun.
Read anything that you can get by Terry Pratchett. It will be one of the better things you can do for yourself. Always enjoyable.

Wierd Witch Discworld!
The Discworld series in general by Terry Pratchett is full of such irreverant, reality stretching, comical romps through a flat world where anything goes.
A fun book and a good listen.
This book had me laughing from start to finish. I didn't want to miss a single word.
In this installment of the Tiffany Aching portion of Disc World Tiffany is neck deep in hagging when trouble comes her way. Pratchett developed some of the peripheral characters while adding some interesting new ones. The NMF follow Tiffany into the city, and become a pain in the King's... Neck. You'll appreciate that more after a listen. Briggs does another fine job bringing Pratchett's characters to life. Let's hope T.P. has another novel for Tiffany to sort out some trouble... perhaps it can involve a daughter.
yes I would, although I seldom reread stories.
I loved the entire book.
His performance captures the wit of the author and makes each character so distinct.
One of my favorite.
Can one compare Pratchett to anyone? Well, I suppose Christopher Moore's "Fool" is about on par.
I have not, but I found the performance to be quite enjoyable.
Our Big Wee Hag
I wanted to listen to something funny, and witty and worth my time. This book fit the bill on all three counts. In fact, I laughed so much as I listened on my iPod that my husband kept asking me to recount lines from the book as we were driving up the Northern California coast. Now he wants to listen to it. Good choice. You can't go wrong with Pratchett, in my opinion.
Any fan of Pratchett knows that even his sloppiest work is worth the read in laughter and banter alone. Though not up to par for the previous books in the series, still an entertaining listen.
There didn't seem to be much of a story to this one, but more of a rehash of some previous plot points and a romantic resolve.
Stephen's performance was fun and engaging, not too harsh but appropriately droll.
Terry Pratchett is worth the listening time. A person could read the series and skip this book without missing anything, however.
Tiffany Aching and the Nac Mac Feegles are likely my favorite characters from the Disc World Universe. I uselessly find the plots only far but I love the characters so much that it does not matter.
