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.
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.
