Having read the posted reviews about this book I took a chance and from the first chapter was never disappointed. Although long, the writer wove such an entrancing tale that it never felt long or overly wordy. The plot is reminiscent in some ways of Diana Gabaldon’s Outler (without the steamy sex), but don’t for a minute think there is no sexual tension in this novel! Like Gabaldon’s novels, there were certainly some aspects of the story that strained the bonds of credulity, but by the time these emerged in the tale I was willing to shrug them off. There are some Twilight elements, to be sure, but only as far as suggesting the possibility of cross-species romance. The reader was excellent and did a fine job of character portrayal. All in all, I was thrilled with my choice and await the next book in this series.
I did not realize this was the abridged version. I love Terry Pratchett, but his plots are so intricate and weave in so many characters that the 3 hour condensed version just jumped around all over. It was really difficult to follow.
I love listening to Terry Pratchett books, but I won't buy another abridged version!
Tony Robinson himself is not the issue. He is a marvellous reader.
The opposite. I would not have cut any. That was the whole problem.
I wish I could get a refund!
