    "Another Great Pratchett Story, But No Stephen Brig"

    First of all, I love Terry Pratchett's books and have downloaded and listened to 35 of them. Like everyone else, I was very sad to hear of his passing.

    I love his stories (including Guards! Guards!) but I just don't enjoy them nearly as much without Stephen Briggs reading them. I think it would be a phenomenal gift to his readers if Stephen Briggs was hired to revisit all of the books that were performed by another male performer and redo them. His performances go hand in hand with Pratchett's stories, and make them even better. I (for one) would buy them again, and I think that many of Pratchett's fans would agree.

    "Laugh out loud funny"

    Terry Pratchett's insightful view into modern culture and his pop references are right on target.

    "Amazing narration!"

    I overlook the fact that Terry Pratchett is super British because his writing is so clever. the narrator makes each of the dozens of characters sound distinct and unique. Awesome!

    "Great story in a great series"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Samuel Vimes is my favorite character. He rises to the occasion when he has to.


    Have you listened to any of Nigel Planer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr. Planer is a great narrator, I love his voice and it fits these stories perfectly.

    Story
    "Laughing out loud at the grocery store"

    Be prepared to snicker, smile, giggle & guffaw. Pratchett is incomparable: 2 unconventional romances, a political intrigue, all experienced through the eyes of some of the least-working working stiffs on the Disc. Planer brings a deadpan delivery & spot-on characterization. Cheers!

    "fun early Pratchett Discworld"

    a classic Discworld, it includes the introduction of the night watch and Captain Vimes. Excellent performance, and a lot of fun if you are a fan of the series. Pick it up and enjoy.

    "Well written gets exponentially better"

    Story gets better the further in you get. Terry Pratchet as always does a very good job portraying character and making you feel attached to them as if you know them. He has a very specific humor in which you could easily miss, its so sarcastic its genuine.

    "Great starting point for Discworld"

    While not the first book this is the start of the watch series and like all the series in Discworld is an absolute joy to read. You may have a few more laughs if you read the books In order but very few.

    Always enjoy Pratchett's books. Planer does them great justice. Fun, wit, heroes in unsuspected places. Gotta love the reality twists of this one.
