    Story
    "Tiffany growing up"

    Yes, perhaps needed for Tiffany's development as a character, but I hope she soon gets a sense of humour. She is soooo serious. Luckily there are other characters who lighten it up a bit. Love the new boyfriend.

    "Pratchett and Briggs maintain consistent quality"

    Tiffany Aching continues her progress towards mature "hagdom" - all the old favourite characters from this subseries are there and there are plotlines that prove that Tiffany's life is not destined to be a fairy tale.

    "Fun Read"

    Not as good as most of Terry pratchett's books but still a very fun book. The narration is great and the story is great and an easy listen. Love his books and enjoyed this one as well.

    "Perfect Pratchett"

    I've always loved the Discworld books and this one is no diffrent. The characters are as engaging, funny and, in some cases, mad as ever and the story is one you can really get into. It?s great to see how much Tiffany has grown since the fist time we met her (frying pan in hand) but how she is still very much the same person she?s always been.

    "i shall wear midnight again"

    having read many terry pratchett books, i was unsure about an audible version. the story would never be a problem, the narration could ruin it. but mr briggs is brilliant he brings the story alive you could almost see the wee free men. once i started listening i did,nt want to stop. a great listen

    "A nice tale"

    This is only my second audiobook, and I must say that I am hooked. The narrator takes you into the story and tells it so wonderfully. I am now looking at my back catalogue of Terry Pratchett books to see which one I want on audio.

    "Pratchett at his best"

    I love Terry's Pratchett's books and over the years I can only conclude that he is getting better ! I Shall Wear Midnight is a beautifully written narrative of a young witch finding her way in life and coping with the difficulties of relationships, responsibilities and the inevitable numerous meetings with Death. The book made me laugh and cry, and I listened to it twice - back to back - as I was sure that the second hearing would add even more colour - which it did. The chapters were the right length for me on my 30min commute. Highly recommended - a great listen.

    "A Pterry goodie"

    A good book to end the series, darker in nature than the other three but Tiffany has grown up and it shows, shame to see it end as collectively they have all been good, but that I suppose is a matter of opinion.

    And the narration by Stephen Briggs brilliant as usual, with the range of character voices he uses you would not think it is the same person.

    "I love the witchy books best of all"

    Although a total fan of Terry Pratchett, I do like his 'Witch' books best of all. This one, featuring Tiffany Aching is delightful. One thing I DO like about Terry Pratchett's writing, is that he is obvious a VERY sensible man, and his take on life is so logical. He makes fun of the daft inconsistencies of our world.

    I do like Stephen Briggs best of the readers who narrate the unabridged Pratchetts, this, too, makes a difference to the listening enjoyment.

    A jolly good use of a valuable credit.

    "Fantastic!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of I Shall Wear Midnight to be better than the print version?

    It wasn't better than a book, as nothing beats a book! But it was very enjoyable to listen to while travelling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything!


    What about Stephen Briggs’s performance did you like?

    He has a good voice
