    "Disappointing"

    Equal Rites isn't one of Pratchett's best, but I had high hopes for this audiobook, thinking that Celia Imrie (a fine comic actress) was a good choice for a story which centres on two female characters. Unfortunately, though, frequent mispronunciations and odd intonations show that she didn't really understand what she was reading, and jarred me out of the story. Surprising, really: Pratchett's not exactly a challenging read!

    "Equal Rites"

    Starts off well - usual Pratchitt humour but from halfway I found it boring and in need of abridgement.
