    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse. And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder. He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, and occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.

    What disappointed you about Snuff: Discworld, Book 39?

    Baseless disjointed narrative.

    Authors have the prerogative to produce any style they like. The book doesn't have to meet reader expectations or desires. What disappoints one reader will no doubt delight another.

    Terry Pratchett fans probably feel that Snuff is great, however I didn't.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Terry Pratchett again?

    No

  • Kobra: Afrikaans Edition

    Deon Meyer, die mees gewilde Afrikaanse spanningsverhaalskrywer, se nuwe roman is nou beskikbaar as luisterboek! Die laaste ding wat kaptein Bennie Griessel van die Valke nodig het, is moeilikheid. Want hy suip dalk al weer, hy lieg vir sy kollegas en sy AA-borg, en die intrek by Alexa Barnard was 'n fout. 'n Karnallie van 'n fout. Maar die gastehuis-bloedbad buite Franschhoek was die werk van 'n professionele laksman - drie slagoffers, drie perfekte kopskote.

    Jacobus says: "Deon Meyer delivers! - but in Afrikaans"
    "Thoroughly Enjoyable Book set in the Cape"

    Would you try another book from Deon Meyer and/or Nic De Jager?

    Yes. I have listened to English versions of Meyer's books, but this is the first Afrikaans eboek that I have listened to,


    What about Nic De Jager’s performance did you like?

    His ability to switch between English, Afrikaans and colloquial Kaapse Kleurling Afrikaans


    Do you think Kobra needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes - just good entertainment.


    Any additional comments?

    Let's have more ebooks in Afrikaans!!

    Maar waarom doen hy dit? Beslis nie net vir die geld nie. 'n Sielkundige, Erika Hamilton, ontmoet hom toevallig. Albei van hulle bied op beroepsvlak verligting van neurose, onvervuldheid en frustrasie - die een op akademiese wyse, die ander met lyflike plesier. Wat gebeur wanneer hulle ontmoet?

    Ian Allen says: "Good book, but problems with soundtrack"

    Would you try another book from Irma Venter and/or Stian Bam?

    Don't know, only got 3 minutes into book and in spite of removing it and downloading twice, I still had problems with overlapping sound. Reluctantly returned the book.


    What three words best describe Stian Bam’s performance?

    Good narrator
