The book was good: Susan and Death are pretty awesome, as are The Band With Rocks In boys. Maybe not one of Pratchett's best novels, but still entertaining.
However, as another reviewer pointed out, getting this on tape would have better quality than this version. It was obviously brought over from a set of cassettes, as it includes long pauses between the "tapes" (not the files). There is even an "end of cassette 1" type message at one point.
I was disappointed that I used a credit on this one. If I'd known about the quality in advance, I would have just picked up a copy of the book and skipped this recording until it was redone.
The book and narration were great, I really enjoyed them. However (I don't know if this is an Audible problem or if the files corrupted when I downloaded them), there were some strange hiccups in the recording. Most of these were not a problem, but a bit was cut out between the first part and second file. I don't think it was much, or significant (maybe a paragraph?), it's just that the first sentence of the 2nd part has little relation to the last sentence of the first part.
However, I would recommend the book. It is not Pratchett's best work, but it is exciting. The watch are some of my favorite characters in the Discworld series.
