Funny, fun, odd.
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.
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.
Several! If you include moving me to hysterical laughter.
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!
