Terry Pratchett is a master of comic timing, satire, word play, irony, and tortured metaphor. His books are perfect for audio.
Any Douglas Adams or P. G. Wodehouse. Eoin Colfer tries to match these cats but doesn't really hit the mark.
I love Nigel, he and Simon Jones are the best readers in the world.
I always laugh when listening to Pratchett.
If I had to pick one story arch to follow in the Discworld it would be that of Sam Vimes.
I've read and listened to the entire Ender cannon... So, when another book comes up I have to read it, if only to "complete" the series. If you love all things Ender this is a must and a repeat listen. My biggest complaint is too many readers, or the lack of Rudnicki's narration.
To a friend, no because I keep my nerdery close to the vest. But to a fantasy fan, YES!
I like the coolness of Stone. He's a nice guy with a consistent personality. I also like Wad/Loki. Loki is a tragic, smart, awful creature...
When Danny drops the goons in the ocean. It was a glimpse into his potential abuse of power. I liked the emergence and abruptness of the act.
Yep, I bing listen when I have been waiting for the story to continue.
Whatever you think of OSC, his offbeat politics, etc. He's a great story teller. This series is well worth a listen.
New Republic Birth
This was an excellent conclusion to the trilogy. I'm saddened by the fact that the new movies are going to develop independently from this time line... But read away! If you love Luke like I love Luke, this is the book for you.
Marc is the voice of the extended universe, on of the best narrators period.
Nooope, just a solid 5 stars.
I have a deep and abiding love of Disneyland, so does Steve Martin. If you like his comedy styling, close up magic, 5 string banjos, and anecdotal stories read by a legendary comedian then credits ahoy!!!
Its turtles all the way down... Well only one in this case but you get the point. I love stories about Ankh-Morpork, I love Terry Pratchett. they are great audiobooks and should be a part of any Audible library. The nice aspect of the Discworld books or the series is this, you don't have to read the book chronologically. It helps to be familiar with the cannon, but it is in no way necessary. So don't be dissuaded by the large number of volumes in the series. cherry pick, listen, and enjoy.
I'm compulsive about story arch's, if I start a series I have to finish it at all costs. The problem is that I'm not entirely sure I like this series or if I'm just being silly. With that said any book that has a magical portal in the old Hippo enclosure of Hoogle Zoo... So the most enjoyable part of this book and the series is the olfactory memories of a putrid Hippo inclosure in Salt Lake.
The strong modern take on fantasy.
Not a huge fan of Bobb, I prefer more Mid-Atlantic if not British readers. My first pick would have been Stefan Rudnicki, if we were staying with an American.
Give it a chance, not the best book around but a strong showing.
No, but they are peers.
Well, there are many. Just know this, Stroud is the bravest most honest writer of this age. He is kind and fair to his characters. I love his work more than just about any other.
The hashashin assassins is a priceless bit of Barti art.
Both, time and again.
A must for any serious listener.
A Pretty Airport
The coke machine and fresh sheets.
I love, love, love DNA. He is missed and worshiped in my home and heart.
It depends, how nerdy are they, for example do they know what YYZ is? if so, yes. If they understand manna, sure. Do they have a favorite Kaiju, yep. If they love political drama, no.
How serious it takes itself, and how more irony it takes to take itself so seriously. A dork Tautology.
The description of the hair removing shower.
Yep, I did.
Share and enjoy.
Closer to perfection than most other books, ever. Simon Jones is the voice of my dreams. Jonathan Stroud is an unmitigated genius.
Barti, one of my favorites of all time, if not ever.
Everything. I would listen to Simon read the phone book.
I did, have, and will again.
