    "Average Pratchett, surprisingly flat narration"

    Story

    I've now read or listened to six Terry Pratchett novels, which makes me quite a novice I know! I found Wyrd Sisters to be an amusing story but not one of the best. The most important thing to know about this audio book recording is that Celia Imrie's narration is very flat and uninteresting. I was excited to see that she was the narrator for this book because I love her as an actress in Kingdom, Doctor Who, Marple, Poirot, and so on, but there's something about the way she reads that makes it very difficult to listen to the book and almost puts you to sleep. Her reading isn't very expressive and feels monotonous; it also sounds a little too "soft" and muffled on every device I used to play it, as though the sound weren't engineered quite right. I would recommend that people buy and listen to Hogfather instead, which I thought was a much more interesting story and a better-read and better-produced audio recording.

    Meet Anita Thompson: she's young, she's lovely, she's clever, and she's a witch. A real one. Anita lives in two worlds: the modern world of supermarkets and sports cars, radio and rock-and-roll, where she is a thoroughly modern girl with a thoroughly modern interest in boys and fast living and her own independence. But she also lives in the ancient and rustic world of traditions, cauldrons, and familiars.

    I was blown away by this lost classic and by the terrific narration of Nicola Barber. I will definitely be buying more of the "Neil Gaiman Presents" series!
