This is one of the best Discworld books I have ever had the pleasure of reading/listening to. The characters are well written and the plot leads to quite a number of absurdities that Terry Pratchett executes to perfection. I laughed out loud more than once and have already re-listened to the book a number of times.
Stephen Briggs does a magnificent job and has made me a devoted fan of his version of Pratchett's books.
As usual, Terry Pratchett delivers fantasy, comedy and sharp eyed comment about society, this time about the army and equal rights. Many observatiosn are right on and to the point, but however funny it is, the same "joke" or plot over and over may be stretching it a little thin, thus the reason for only giving 4 out of 5.
Stephen Briggs does a wonderful job as a narrator, he's one of the best men doing female voices (and oh boy, he needs that talent in this one) that I have ever heard.
