Publisher's Summary

The show must go on, as murder, music, and mayhem run riot in the night.

The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork, is a huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely familiar evil mastermind in a hideously deformed evening dress.

At least, he hopes so. But Granny Weatherwax, Discworld's most famous witch, is in the audience. And she doesn't hold with that sort of thing.

So there's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening's entertainment, with murderous performances you can really hum).

What the Critics Say

"Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic, and unchained whimsy....Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own." (Sunday Times)

    "Classic Terry Pratchett"
    If you could sum up Maskerade in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Clever, Entertaining


    Have you listened to any of Nigel Planer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I typically have enjoyed Nigel Planers reading of the Discworld novels, this performance does not disappoint!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed allowed on many occasions!

    "Maskerade doesnt hit the high notes"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Shorten it by 100 minutes and bring in more of the regular Diskworld characters


    Has Maskerade turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No , but I will avoiid Terry Pratchett's other novels involving the witches


    What didn’t you like about Nigel Planer’s performance?

    I kept hearing Neil from "The Young Ones" moaning through the characters


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No way too long to support a totally predicable plot. I actualy got bored and switched to other audio books several times before I forced myself to finish this work


    Any additional comments?

    diskworld always should have appearnces , even cameos, by Lord Vetinari, Sam Vines and the Guards, CMOT Dibbler et al. and use less predicatble plagarised plots.
