    Story

    Right before the wise old wizard Drum Billet died, he passed on his magical staff of power to the newborn eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately, Drum Billet never bothered to check the gender of the newborn baby, and it turns out it was a girl. Now his chauvinistic colleagues are forced to deal with a young girl who has all the qualifications to join their all-male profession.

    Ryan says: "Entertaining!"
    "Good book, not great audio"
    Overall

    As with my review of Wyrd Sisters, Celia has a voice that just doesn't agree with me. It's quite and vaguely muffled which makes it very difficult to understand when outside noise is present. I would vastly prefer a version done by Nigel.

    Mort, like many teenagers, is gangly, unpromising, and struggling with a menial job - in his case, as Death's apprentice. He can barely handle his simple task of ushering souls out of Discworld, but he really screws up when he meets the beautiful Princess Keli, who is scheduled to be assassinated.

    Sarah says: "Not genius, but pretty good"
    "Great audio"
    Overall

    Nigel is a very good narrator for these books and does a fantastic job in this one. Easily understood and with great inflection.

    In Wyrd Sisters, the enchanting world of Discworld is turned upside down by 3 meddling witches: Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick. Their interference in royal politics causes kingdoms to wobble, crowns to topple, knives to flash, and citizens to shudder in fear.

    Katy says: "Happy I gave it a chance, despite other reviews"
    "Good book, not great audio"
    Overall

    The book was good but the narrator was difficult to make out and was easily drowned out and overshadowed by environmental noise. I listen to these while driving and for large sections I had to turn the volume way up to understand what was being said. I simply don't like her voice for the narration, I vastly prefer the narration done in Sourcery.

    A "sourcerer" is born in Discworld - a wizard so powerful that he makes all other magicians look like a bunch of fools in pointy hats. Now, suddenly, Discworld is brought to the brink of an all-out thaumaturgical war. The only hope for peace is Rincewind, the failed magician who has a risky plan to save the world. He enlists the help of several odd new characters, including Conina the barbarian hairdresser, Nijel the Destroyer, and a yuppie genie who sees lamps as a growth industry.

    Tony says: "Sourcery (Unabridged)"
    "Well read, great book"
    Overall

    The book itself was great as have all Discworld books I've read, Nigel was excellent as the narrator and was clear and easily understood. Full props to him for that.
