Publisher's Summary

On a hot midsummer night in Discworld, everything seems perfect - crop circles are turning up everywhere, the witch Magrat Garlick is getting married the next morning, and everyone's buzzing with excitement. Unfortunately, the Lancre All-Comers Morris Team has gotten drunk on a fairy mound, and the elves have returned with the traditional traits of the magical realm of Fairie: evil, malice, murder, cruelty, and kidnapping. Suddenly, Granny Weatherwax and her tiny coven of belligerent witches are faced with their biggest challenge as they try to pull off Magrat's wedding.

    Story
    "Witches vs. Elves"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. This is Terry Pratchett at his best, funny and wise.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are too many to choose from. I'd have to say Nanny Ogg in this one, because of her laid-back and unashamed attitude to life, sex and food.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nanny Ogg in the restaurant making a shambles of the seductive dinner.


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

    It took me 3 sittings, but yes, I would love to have done it in one go.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is filled with great individuals. All 3 witches. The Librarian. The Arch Chancellor. The Dean and his dried frog pills. Ponder Stibbins and his theories of quantum magic. Casanunda, the dwarf 2nd greatest lover in the world. (We try harder,)

    On top of this the story is exciting and compelling. There is so much packed into this book it's a wonder it doesn't explode.

    "Lords and Ladies"

    I did like this one but it is not his best. It is worth listing to BUT Steven Briggs is the best for Terry's books in my opinion.

    "VERY entertaining :)"

    The witches are at it again and they are funnier than ever. I giggled SO MUCH. Excellent palette cleanser (on SO many levels).

    "Great story"
    Would you listen to Lords and Ladies again? Why?

    I would recommend Lords & Ladies, as it is a vital part to the on-going Discworld series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a Discworld story. What is not to love?


    What does Nigel Planer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not much. I love Nigel Planer's comedy but his voice range leaves a lot to be desired. Every character sounds like they have some sort of sinus blockage, and he sometimes reads a bit slowly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There is a good reason I don't make films: I find their tag lines to be annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it, and think of Shakespeare.

    "A favorite"

    How can you go wrong with Pratchett? Still, one of his best. He flip flops the role of the faery-kind with the maiden, the mother, and the "other one" fiercely fighting for their Lancre land. I keep coming back to it.

    Enjoy!

    "FUnny and classic"

    Like all of terry Pratchetts works this is descriptive...

    From the Discriptions of the witches to the nature of witchcraft to even the nature of wizards. He has described it such ellegence that it is hard to think of the story being any shorter than the 9 hours described ... heck it was leaving me wanting more.

    "Nigel Planer Ruins another one"

    I couldn't listen to it. Nigel Planer never fails to make each and every female character sound as if she is speaking from the bottom of the gene pool with a head cold after being whacked it the head with a rock. His male characters aren't much better. I've had some forgiveness for him in the past because Terry Pratchett's writing is brilliant enough to shine through. But what he did to Granny Weatherwax cannot be forgiven.

    It seems like a very good book and up to Terry Pratchett's usual brilliance. I will just have to add it to my reading list instead of my listening list.
