Men at Arms: Discworld, Book 15 | [Terry Pratchett]

Men at Arms: Discworld, Book 15

Fate is a word that springs to the lips when to call something coincidence seems mealy mouthed. Destiny is another such. But the problem with destiny is, of course, that she is not always careful where she points her finger. One minute you might be minding your own business on a normal, if not spectacular, career path; the next you might be in the frame for the big job. Like saving the world.

    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    "A listening pleasure"

    If it wasn't for the way Tony Robinson read Men at Arms, it might not have been so enjoyable. While the abridgement looses a lot of the Prachett wit, and at times makes it difficult to follow the story, Robinson makes up for these shortfalls.

    It is almost unbelievable when you listen to this audio book, to think that it is not a dramatised production. Robinson brings every character to life with the changes in his voice. Not once did I feel that his interpretation missed the the essence of Pratchett's characters.

    "A pleasant revisit"

    After three Pratchetts read by Robinson, I took a break and explored other authors, other narrators. Some were brilliant and others not quite so. But coming back with Men at Arms - and picking one to revisit was difficult, trust me - was like coming home to a familiar world with its many and sundry characters. What I love about him is that of the three City Watch novels I've listened to, all the relevant characters have remained consistent - something I've discovered which a lot of other narrators have trouble with, even within the same book.
