    "Fantastic "

    Great Terry Pratchett book, one of my new favorites. Narration was excellent,story was phenomenal. If your looking for a good Terry Pratchett Book look no further. The other upside to this book is, it is one of the first books in one of the discworld series.You can just pick it up with no previous reading required.

    Story
    "I love Discworld"

    Take me Ankh-Morpork! Put me into the protective arms of the motley crew of the Night Watch.
    In this contribution to the Night Watch storyline in Discworld we are entertained, once again, on how a perfect plan falls apart at first engagement with the enemy (a phrase borrowed from the Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold). Greed is the motive for the deed that raises some unexpected results.
    If you love political satire, puns, powerful writing, solid characters...the good stuff we want in books is provided.

    "Good book but.."
    Any additional comments?

    Sound gets really loud and really quiet and the audible announcer at the begining is the very worst about this.

    Story
    "One of my favorites so far."

    Mr. Planer always does a wonderful job of creating immersive differences in the voices the characters. The challenge for all the Discworld voice actors is to read for the other gender. In this book in particular, however, Mr. Planer had only one major female character to voice and his choice of style for her was very well done.

    Mr. Planer's comic delivery is well-suited to Pratchett's sense of humor and he managed to get a few laughs out of me during this reading.

    My only complaint so far-- and it's an itty bitty one-- is that they seem to have decided to stop applying effects to the voice of Death. I miss the the exaggerated vocals of Death, but it has not affected my ability to enjoy the books at all.

    Though several books have had serious tones here and there, this one by far had the only "chilling" notes so far-- delivered brilliantly by Mr. Planer and with the merely eery artistic whimsy of RL Stine.

    As always, I am excited about what comes next.

    "Smart and Funny but overdone"

    My first Pratchett book. I found him to be delightfully smart, and funny, but the onslaught of jokes became tiresome after awhile for my palate. Others may revel in this story, however.

    The performance was excellent and top notch. Hope to listen to more of this reader in the future.

    This was my first Terry Pratchett book and I gotta say that there was no point in this book that I regretted the purchase
