I started off listening to Terry Pratchett with Guards, Guards!! I love his guard books and this one is no different. Sam Vimes is awesome and I love how Pratchett is is developing Young Sam.
I really didn't know Terry Pratchett's work but when I saw all of the other reviews, I thought I'd give Snuff a try. It was so enjoyable that I listened to it without taking breaks to listen to other stuff.
Commander Vimes is a great character, someone that I couldn't help but cheer for throughout the whole book.
Willikins, the butler, is by far my favorite! He'd be a great guy to know and have in your corner.
Any Terry Prachett
You can't beat Vimes going down the flooded river, being a determined copper all the way.
Vimes, of course. He puts things right, all the while wearing itchy , hand-knitted socks.
The disc world is such a treat from the ordinary hum drum of life.
Sam Vimes is back and is as hilarious as ever, but honestly I think this book should have been 100 pages longer. Seems like it's missing some plot.Stephen Briggs' performance is perfect as usual.
This was a decent book. I, as a reader, have read many Pratchett books. This is not an amazing Pratchett book, but it had its points. If I were to suggest that a friend start reading Pratchett, I would tell him or her to start with the Tiffany Aching series rather than this. As a Pratchett book this was good, just not great.
If you love the Discworld novels, especially those that involve the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, this is a no-brainer. It is very Vimes centric, but that ain't a bad thing. I love how Mr. Pratchett fleshes out what was essentially a throw-away species rarely mentioned in some of his other books. Also, Sam Vimes rules. 'Nuff said.
The combination of Pratchett/Briggs is amazing. Both artists just keep getting better! Do yourself a favor and just start buying the DiscWorld Series. There are over 30 books thus far but that's a good thing. You'll have year's of enjoyment to look forward to. Highest recommendation.
