    "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.

    "Phenomenal Story, Audio Quality Lacking"

    Planer was, like his last Discworld narrations, impeccable. It was the audio QUALITY that sometimes distracted me. Certainly not as poor as Colour of Magic (which sounded like Planer was talking from either the end of a long hallway or the inside of a colostomy bag), but noticeable enough to knock the presentation of the whole thing down a tick.

    "Phenomenal"

    This was my first Pratchet book. I'll be reading/listening to many more.

    The narrator here was extremely talented - pulling off all sorts of English accents can't be easy. He made a fun story and great characters even better. Well done.

    "Great story--very entertaining!!"

    Great story. Terry Pratchett gives more insight into several recurring discworld characters. It's lots of fun, too!! Special focus on the Night Watch and the librarian from Unseen University
