    MICHAEL says: "Decent character development, poor audio quality"
    "great book, bad recording"
    Overall

    All of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series are absolutely great read aloud and Men At Arms is no different - Nigel Planner reads the stories very well with good & distinct differences for each individual character involved.

    However the recording here is slow, destroying much of the enjoyment of other novels in the series. Hopefully this is an issue Audible.com will rectify soon. Listen to the sample and decide whether the sound quality is endurable to you before buying. If it is, then Men At Arms is a great and worthy novel to continue the adventures of Sam Vimes, Carrot & the rest of the Night Watch introduced in Guards! Guards!
    A story which I am sure I will listen to over and over far into the future!

    5/5 for the novel & story - 1/5 for the recording.

    You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry, you'd better not pout, I'm telling you why: here, for the first time on audio, is the acclaimed, award-winning Christmas 'Clue' special I'm Sorry I Haven't a Christmas Carol.

    "the antidote to christmas"
    Overall

    bah humbug - I dislike christmas shows.

    But I laughed out loud several times and groaned in pain at the puns far too often listening this, the special edition is more scripted than most but definitely not to it's detriment, the structure just allows the cast to do what they do best with more regularity.
    It's Clue with everything to love about it, and as with other collections of I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue it's something to listen to over and over - no matter what time of year.

    With all the favourite cast from the classic Willie Rusthon era up to the best of special guests from recent years there's something to please everyone - god bless them one and all.
