    "Some irkful inconsistencies."

    70% of the enjoyment I get from an audiobook relies on the narrator being successful. I have found that Nigel Planer's narration of the discworld novels is not ideal. He tends to pronounce words differently each time he says them, and sometimes mixes up the voices assigned to characters!

    Please, Nigel... it's "g-eye-tha Ogg, not "githa". I'm sure it is! ;)

    The story, of course, is very much worth the listen, even despite the irksomeness!

    "so sad about the quality"

    TP is my alltime favorite Author. it is very sad, that audible cannot produce the title in a quality that dosent sound like is has been sampled with a 2-bit codec.

    "Great book and narrator!"

    I really love Pratchett's Discworld novels and so it's no wonder i laughed a lot listening to a book i've already read three times. :) But it's not just Pratchett's writing. I also really like the reader. His immitation of the character's voices just suites my taste and brings in some extra humor.

    Why not 5 stars then?
    Because the audio quality is changing throughtout the book. Once it's ok, once it's bad. But i'm afraid, it's never really "good". At least it is by all means sufficient.

    "Pratchett does it again"

    Another total success. Mr. Pratchett does it once more, I have never had a bad novel by this man, whether in print or audio format.

    "Keep iron near!"

    There is a reason why there are horseshoes nailed to the door.

    Read this to understand why...

    "Enjoyable"

    Another gem from Mr Pratchett. We see the wonderful witches of Lancre competing with the 'netherworld'. Nice touch of getting a rival witch wannabees involved. The usual humour along with an inventive theme keeps the reader enthralled from the beginning to the end. not only one to be read at mid-summer, but all year round.

    "Discworld: Lords and Ladies"

    This is a great Pratchett novel, definitely up to his highest standards. The witches are definitely amongst his best and most entertaining characters. Pratchett's brand of quotable humour and distinctive characters suits the audio-book format perfectly. This has been one of my best Audible purchases.
