Publisher's Summary

It's the night before Hogwatch. And it's too quiet.

There's snow, there are robins, there are trees covered with decorations, but there's a notable lack of the fat man who delivers the toys...

He's gone.

Susan the governess has to find him before morning, otherwise the sun won't rise. And unfortunately her only helpers are a raven with an eyeball fixation, the Death of Rats ("the grim squeaker"), and an oh god of hangovers. Worse still, someone is coming down the chimney. This time he's carrying a sack instead of a scythe, but there's something regrettably familiar...

Ho. Ho. Ho.

It's true what they say..."You'd better watch out..."

What the Critics Say

"Discworld is more complicated and satisfactory than Oz. Truly original. Pratchett creates a brilliant excess of delectable detail!" (Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine) "The characters, the conceits, the jibes at contemporary intellectual currents are delightful." (AudioFile)
"You needn't have read Pratchett before to laugh uproariously and think seriously about the meanings of Christmas." (Amazon.com)

    "Excellent narration"

    I'm such a fan of Stephen Briggs' narrations of the Discworld books that I was hesitant to buy a book read by another narrator. I'm so glad I did purchase it! Nigel Planer's reading is perfect for so many of the voices.

    "Excellent"

    I first saw the Hogfather movie in the UK before I read any of the Discworld books. I slept through the movie (might have been the jet lag). After listening to the audiobook, I can appreciate the wonderful film. Nigel Planer does a fine performance, but I must say that I prefer Tony Robinson's Death to anyone else's including Briggs.

    "One of Pratchett's best"

    This was the first Terry Pratchett/Discworld book that I found and is still one of my favorites.

    "Stephn Briggs should read ALL Pratchett books"

    The title says it all. Nigel Planer is OK but Briggs is masterful. I have several Pratchett audio books and Briggs always delights.
    Hogsfather is a great story but the reader is only so-so.

    "slow boring stupid"

    Don't waist your time. I've listened to over 50 audible titles and this is the very worst
