    "Discworld is more complicated and satisfactory than Oz," says Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. "Truly original. Pratchett creates a brilliant excess of delectable detail!" Hogfather is a Discworld Christmas tale - not to be missed! Browse more novels of Discworld.

    Overall

    This is easily my favorite Christmas, sorry Hogswatch story. Terry Pratchet spins a delightful tale with great wit and dark humor. The tale is well narrated as well, you can hear Death speaking IN ALL CAPITALS. Wonderful twists on classic themes that doesn't end with a jaded postmodern view. Definately a holiday story for adults (not that it is vulgar in any way) that reminds emotionally captures the "meaning of Hogswatch" without being campy or sugary sweet. Simply delightfull.

    Ishmael is an utterly unique and captivating spiritual adventure which redefines what it is to be human. We are introduced to Ishmael, a creature of immense wisdom. He has a story to tell, one that no human being has ever heard before. It is the story of man's place in the grand scheme, and it begins at the birth of time. This history of the world has never appeared in any schoolbook. "Does the earth belong to man?" Ishmael asks. "Or does man belong to the earth?"

    Overall

    I loved the book, so I thought why not the audiobook? The abridgment cuts out most of the "meat" of the story. The abridgment is better than nothing (thus four stars) but the book hits much harder with more information and draws the mind further into the story. Worth the read but could have been great.
