    Story
    (412)

    Cameras roll - which means the imps inside have to paint really fast - on the fantastic Discworld when the alchemists discover the magic of the silver screen. But what is the dark secret of Holy Wood hill? As the alien cliches of Tinsel Town pour into the world, it's up to the Disc's first film stars to find out...

    Timothy says: "Funny and smart. Escapism at its best."
    "Delightful, satirical fantasy as social commentary"
    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    If you could sum up Moving Pictures in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, fun, odd.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A great story, deliberately rife with cliches, that chronicles the invention of moving pictures and the insane industry that grows up around it in a world of no technology. Magic out of control and a cast of bizarre characters make this a super fun listen.


    What about Nigel Planer’s performance did you like?

    Nigel Planer does a great job of reading the story, using appropriate voices and delivering the "punch lines" with typical dry British humor. I love his voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several! If you include moving me to hysterical laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    Hubby can always tell when I'm reading Sir Terry Pratchett. It's the only time I laugh out loud when reading (or listening) to a book. It actually is what convinced him to try reading them too. Now he's hooked and we listen together in the car!
