    "Wasn't sure at first..."

    I found Celia Imrie's character voices horrendous at first listen - they didn't even sound like real people. I wasn't sure if I could get through it!

    However, it got much, much better as it went on. Worth the wait, a great story.

    "Great story - not keen on the narration!"

    I wish Audible would produce another unabridged version of this book! I'd buy it! A Terry Pratchett Classic read poorly.

    "Excellent"

    Excellent reader, excellent story. Audio quality and editing a little rough, but no problems listening.

    Terry Pratchett's writing continues to improve.

    "Witches Wizards and how not to use Magic"

    Brilliant!!!

    Please don't be put off by the reviews that mention sound quality, mispronounciation of words or any other negative personal views.

    The narration is perfect for the book and characters. The men sound male enough and the women are the most important anyway. I cannot find a bad word for the excellent narrator. Her skill makes the story come to life.

    As for illiterate persons or rather characters struggling with their pronounciation... Well, what is more real than that...?

    Totally Disk World! Totally Wizard!!!

    "Wonderful"

    The story was excellent, Terry Pratchett is, as always, a wonder. I also enjoyed every minute of Celia Imrie's excellent narration and was sorry when it ended.

    "not just a story but a world."

    I love the way terry Pratchett's writes. wired and wonderfully. I don't think these book are for people you like and good complicated storyline. but I think the story is use more to show off the world. so if you want to get invested in some brilliant characters and and extraordinary world then these books have that in Spade's. this book adds in some great additions characters and I can't wait to see them again.

    "Great book"

    Wasn't to keen on the narrators pauses half way through some sentences and descriptions, made the pace of the book seem really slow but was another great discworld story to be enjoyed with its stand out humour

    Story
    "Excellent episode from Discworld."

    Another good episode from the Diskworld from Mr Pratchett. I think the choice of a female voice in the form of Ceilia Imrie is the right choice for a mainly female character led story. Couldn't put it down. A1.

    "Good, not the best."

    Loved the first books of Discworld (books 1 and 2) however this story didn't really grab me as much. Still very good and I would suggest a listen before you move onto book 4.

    However, as was the case with the book 2 recording I had, the sound quality is terrible, it seems to get better as you go along but generally not great sound.
