I enjoyed this historical mystery very much indeed and would recommend it.
The juxtaposition of current day and the time of Richard III
Death is having a personal crisis, and music with rocks is causing a riot. It all settles out in the end and an enjoyable listen. The performance is excellent.
A thought provoking book with excellent narration. I first read it 40+ years ago--I've aged, the book has not.
You don't want to rush through this book, take your time and reflect on how it might apply in some way to your own walk.
C.S.Lewis is a literary, spiritual treasure.
Rincewind and the Wizards of Unseen University have a big adventure. The story moves along from one thing to the next quite fun the whole thing.
The Patrician & City Watch are tied up in local and international politics. The city goes to war! A great Terry Pratchett satirical diversion.
DEATH and his granddaughter save Hogswatch on the Disc World. Wizards & Foul 'ole Ron are also there. Lots of fun with a few bits of philosophy worth thinking about. Terry Pratchett always delivers a literate and entertaining diversion.
A good fun mystery with the Patrician, the City Watch & golums. Terry Pratchett is delightfully literate and satirical without being mean-spirited.
More adventures of Moist the postmaster and his "benefactor" the Patrician. A golum or two show up as well along a wee doggie. Fun & mystery will Moist be able to pull the caper or lose his head?
There were hints of Terry Pratchett here and there in the book but just whispers. I guess all the rest, crude language, etc., is Stephen Baxter. I didn't get it--it isn't that I'm not a SciFi or fantasy fan--I've read/listen to all of the DiscWorld Series, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, etc. I just wasn't drawn into this.
This may be one of favorite Hamish Macbeth Mysteries to date. A good story, plot & characters with good clues, hindsight always makes the clues more fun. What I liked about this book was that the people Hamish had to question were not so rude. I must live in a different parallel because I can't imagine suspects being so rude to the police during a murder investigation. These suspects all lied but at least they weren't obnoxious.
If you like Hamish I think you will like this one.
I love Terry Pratchett's writing. At first this story was not a favorite of mine but after a 2nd listen I enjoyed it more. It is probably because I like the stories about the Night Watch in DiscWorld best but this one has a good part for the Patrician and the magicians draw you in so all in all--if you like Pratchett--purchase it. Stephen Briggs does an excellent job of narration which is essential in an audible book.
