I really love Pratchett's witty humor. His style is unique and always enjoyable. The man can really play with words, and also encase some really sharp concepts in a lot of humor. I am not a reader of phantasy books, but for Pratchett I always am happy to make an exception.
The story is the usual absurdity concoted by Pratchett, but you will end to care for Mort and the other characters, including Death.
His voice is the ideal guide to the Discworld, perfect to emphasize Pratchett's wit
This story deals with many serious themes , including racism, homosexuality and male friendship. Albeit they are considered seriously, this is not a treatese but a mistery, The light banter between the two main characters, that they keep going even in the most grivious situations, also helps the reading. In summary, the story has depth, but it is a good mistery and a pageturner (... or the equivalent for an audiobook)
I have only a very sketchy knowledge of inflections in various areas of the US, and surely listening to the performer helped me.there. The fact that he has a pleasant voice also helped.
I was hooked, and sometimes scared of what was coming, like in a good story.
I would recommend the whole Spenser series by Robert Parker.
I like the dialogue, and Spenser's crisp humour in dealing with small town corrupted cops, drug dealers and his pal Hawks. Least interesting is all the love fluff with his girlfriend. This entry is not the best in the series, but the background quality of the writing is always there.
I simply adore his slightly metallic voice, whether he is reading the Spenser's novels by Robert Parker or the Nero Wolfe's novels by Rex Stout. He is perfect in both roles.
Not laugh otu loud, but it is witty
