Then laughed some more. Pratchett only gets better as he continues this series. If you've never heard any of his books, this is as good a place to start as any. If you're familiar, well, this is another jewel in the Discworld necklace.
This story had flat, unengaging characters. Would have been vastly improved if any relationships had been forged during the story. Also, characters kept doing things that were NOT in character, just to advance the storyline. If someone told me this story had been written using a couple of 20 sided die I would TOTALLY believe it.
Maybe something else with this narrator
She's got the ability to add meaning to words without hitting one over the head with her vocalizations
Easier to answer who I wouldn't cut - and that would be Braun
Of course, that's an easy review to write. Pratchett takes all of human history and mushes it together in this crazy place called imagination. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
I'm usually able to ignore paranoid conspiracy theories and enjoy a variety of viewpoints but by the end of this book I was skipping forward to just get to the end. The authour's fascination with the horrific and harrowing aspects of modern life and science became too exhausting to listen to. I can't imagine a scenario that would induce me to listen to the next two books.
This is another wonderful, funny story by Terry Prachett. It's wrapped in an uneven and uninspiring recording, which is too bad. His other books are read in the quirky British way that fits so well with his writing. This one is cut strangely, incorporates a LOT of vocal talent but doesn't show them to their advantage and doesn't have the rhythm the book needs.
