This is one of my favorite Discworld novels. It features "the watch" which is always a recipe for success plus the story line is excellent. I was a fan of Nigel Planer's narration but I think Stephen Briggs is also excellent and he brings the characters to life in this story.
I really enjoyed this audiobook. Well narrated by Bill Bryson. It is both very funny and very touching.
I am a big fan of the Discworld series, but I was disappointed with this book. I think Terry Pratchett might have been off the boil on this one. I thought the humor was rather repeditive and predictable...making fun of Aussie beer and vegemite over and over again, etc. Thankfully I also downloaded "Jingo" at the same time...a much better book from Pratchett on form.
