Tiffany Aching, the young witch from The Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky, and Wintersmith is back in a new adventure featuring Discworld characters both familiar to fans (such as Tiffany, the Wee Free Men, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg) and new (meet Wee Mad Arthur, the Nac Mac Feegle on the City Watch whose only previous appearance was a brief cameo in Feet of Clay, and city witch Mrs Proust - a fabulous Pratchett creation). Oh, and there's a magic book or two, a twist through time, a Cunning Man - and a Giant Man of chalk....

A nicely rounded story. This book has some excitement, some tension, and some things that make one think. An everyday story of country folk as they never were, but probably should have been.
"16 year old Tiffany"
As an avid fan of Terry Pratchett DiscWorld series I am probably biased but I thoroughly enjoyed the development of Tiffany's story, her advancement and maturity as she grows into a fine and caring witch.
As expected - full of that very special writing that is Terry Pratchett ! The Humour, sarcasm and rich characters. He always brings to words the things we know we all do, say or feel.
"fantastic as always"
Love this book. It is utterly fantastic as are all the Tiffany Aching Stories. I would recommend them to everyone.
"So long Sir Terry, thank-you for Tiffany"
Tiffany Aching is becoming one of my favourite Discworld characters (alongside Moist VL and Cmdr Vimes). This story nicely fills out the character of Tiffany and Is fantastically narrated by Simon Briggs (as always).
Oh what a wonderful story! I have loved all four books. Tiffany Aching is a marvellous role model for young girls; strong, intelligent, kind, thoughtful, funny... I love the depths of the story, how it meanders through various paths and reflects on the different aspects of humanity.
Stephen Briggs is a truly fabulous narrator, bringing Pratchett's characters to life... With an amazingly impressive number of accents!
It wasn't better than a book, as nothing beats a book! But it was very enjoyable to listen to while travelling.
He has a good voice
"A great read..."
It was well read, with fabulous characterisation. Really enjoyable to listen to.
Pratchett at his best. Funny, imaginative and it's a witch story. Fantastic!
I haven't listened to any others yet, but I will.
Not really a moving book, but I loved it.
Terry Pratchett is, as ever, the master of the genre. Absolutely loved it!
