    "And so starts The Watch"

    This was at one time my least favorite books of the series, but after listening to it again, it has moved way up the list. Here we start "The Watch Cycle". Where we have most things set in the major city on the Disc, and have the author seams to have the most fun.

    "Great Pratchett but..."

    The recording was messy. At one point Planer says, "I'll do that over" and repeats the prior line. The sound quality was not consistent either. The editing and production quality are the problem here. The performance of the story was great and only hindered by bad production.

    "Standard Terry Pratchett brilliance"

    Nigel Planer brings to life the first of the Watch series. Great, humorous, captivating story.

    "Absolutely delightful!"

    I love terry, and his discworld series, especially those revolving around Sam vimes and the city guard.
    My only complaint is that because the books do not have chapters so much as simply breaks the division of the audiobooks "chapters" does not line up w the narrative breaks; they just fall in the middle from what I can tell, making finding a spot to stop very difficult. All they need to do is pay a tiny bit of attention to where they put the breaks.

    "Perfect"

    This book is a gem. Every sentence is perfectly crafted. This is in fact a magical book. No matter where you are when you choose to tune into it, it will transform into you an alternate reality, peopled with dragons and wizards and what not. The coming back to the "dimension considered normal" hurts.

    The performance was excellent too, bringing the book to life. Vimes sounded like he had a cold throughout the book, but it didn't bother me much.

    "Good starting point"

    My first Pratchett, and I loved it! Hilarious!! I cannot imagine that I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the previous books in the series.
    Reminded me of Douglas Adams!
    If you like British humor, I would recommend this.
