    "I wish I had come across any comparable author."

    This book is indeed a masterpiece. A beautiful truth for children and adults. I never knew you Mr. Pratchett, but I miss you. You have taught me, just a little to teach myself.
    Fairy stories? Yeah right.
    Thank you.
    (Oh - and Stephen Briggs? "That'll do.")

    "I Shall Wear Midnight"

    Superb story telling. Wonderful tale of Tiffany Aching in her role as the Witch of the Chalk. Her handling of the new Baron and her fight with the vengeful spirit of a witchfinder from1000 years in the past. Helping to protect the land from evil, and finding love too. Excellent story and narration as usual.

    If you could sum up I Shall Wear Midnight in three words, what would they be?

    Tiffany Grows Up


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Granny Weatherwax is a deeply felt and beautifully detailed portrait of a strong but difficult woman who has dedicated herself to the service of others although she often doesn't like them very much.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoy Stephen Briggs readings of Pratchett - other narrators have irritated me by picking random British accents for characters and with nudgy here-comes-a funny-bit delivery but Briggs uses accents in a sparing and logical fashion and gets the feel just right.

    "Tiffany had me spell bound."

    The tales of Tiffany Aikin has captivated me. Pratchett at his best, so sad they are now at an end.

    "A favorite story"

    I regularly listen to Sir Terry's books. The Tiffany Aching series is a favorite and this is the one I enjoy most. The story is complex enough to be interesting even after listening several times. He balances the darkness of the main story with humor and optimism without being banal. Steven Briggs gives each character a distinctive voice. He sets a good pace and tension to match the writing. The only reason I don't give him 5 stars is because his voice is just a bit too deep for the soprano ofchildren and young women (there are several in this story). I do find his adult female voices good, though. Overall I enjoy Stephen's storytelling very much.

    "Terry Pratchett genius"
    If you could sum up I Shall Wear Midnight in three words, what would they be?

    A typical Pratchett dose of imagination mixed with mundane reality making a magical spectacular. It's very hard not to love the dis World Series of books. In my opinion Pratchett will be known as the modern Dickens.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the Nac Mac Feegles.. Diminutive little warriors with hearts of lions. You just have to love them


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most definitely


    Any additional comments?

    The disc World Series is a mixture of colourful characters dealing with modern subjects such as racism, religion, and general common sense wisdom, in a humorous and delectably light way. A must read for anyone.

    "Thoroughly enjoyable"

    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.
