I love audio and I love print. Can't say for sure which is better.
This was definitely a rocket ride from the beginning. I don't want to spoil the book for anyone. Jane starts out moving fast, and never slows down.
Joyce is very good in this series and she is Jane's voice that I hear in my head when I re-read the stories.
I did listen in one sitting. I'm retired and have the time. I stayed up VERY late. It was worth it.
If you have never read any other Jane Whitefield books, DO NOT START with this one. It brings in characters and situations from earlier books. As a series reader I loved it, but it would not make sense to someone who wasn't.
Start at the beginning with Vanishing Act and come forward.
I have read Small Gods several times. I would listen, again, just as I may read it again.
Pyramids by Terry Pratchett. His most popular books take place in Ankh-Morpork, but these "stand-alones" are little gems that really show his power as an author.
I like Nigel Planer's Discworld. To me, he is to Discworld what Jim Dale is to Harry Potter. He hits the right tone and sounds like what I thought the characters should sound like. I read all the books before every listening to any, and was very pleased with Planer.
Nothing particular. The whole book is great and Brother is a perfect character.
This is my favorite Pratchett book.
