Always thought provoking and entertaining, true to life: which is to say dire, beautiful and hilariously funny by turns, and sometimes all at once... Read perfectly by Stephen Briggs.
I always choose Stephen Briggs narrations first when buying Pratchett. Others disagree. I own almost all in download or CDs, and all the books. I Shall Wear Midnight is one of T P's fav books as well as one of mine. This book ties up a great deal and brings together most of the great witch characters for the big finale. And burping goats.
Tiffany Aching kissed the winter and now it's time for trial by fire! I loved every minute of it, a must read for any discworld fan.
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.
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.

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.
