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.
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.
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. 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
This book is funny, insightful, and has unforgettable characters. A real joy with so many details you can listen many times and still hear new things. Bravo!
Discworld is a wonderful place, but sometimes the flights there take too long to get off the ground. This particular story FINALLY tells me what I always wondered: what was captain Vimes like when he was single? But it took a bit too long to get there. Once it was there, it was a discworld romp as usual, and the usual good amount of fun.
Much, much too long for the amount of sorry actually happening. The writing was clever at times but the was so much padding. I tried to at least finish the story to listen to the conclusion, but when I thought I was almost finished I realized I was only halfway through. Sorry Discworld fans.
This is by far my favourite Discworld novel.
The narration is a joy adding considerably to the enjoyment of the novel.
Quite sad that I need to get back to the real world.
