    "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.

    Where does Hogfather rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a book I will go back to time and time again. It makes me happy to both read and now hear it.


    What does Nigel Planer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings an additional layer of dry wit to the already clever writing of Sir Pratchett.

  • The Importance of Being Earnest

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr and 59 mins)

    This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, "that name which inspires absolute confidence." Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

    Tad Davis says: "Delightfully silly"
    "Utter absurdity and profound hilarity"

    Oh my goodness. This performance is all of the things that this play deserves. The recording quality is top-notch and the interpretation of the absurd wit is excellent.

    The plot contains all the usual Victorian tropes: Instant love, mistaken identity, misunderstandings, and a misplaced handbag.

    I will be listening to this one again and again, whenever I need a break from the unfunny absurdity of life.

    Two-thousand-year-old Atticus may have outwitted and outfought everyone from Odin to Bacchus, but in this eBook original, he’s about to discover what comes around when you go around messing with gods. Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon - and he must also leave his sword.

    Jessica says: "Can't wait for November!"
    "Atticus rides!"

    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Luke Daniels just keeps getting better and better. He's an AMAZING narrator and totally brings these books to life for me. This is the only series where I make a point of buying both the text and audio versions of the book and Luke Daniels is the reason.
