But there's a war on. There's always a war on. And Polly and her fellow recruits are suddenly in the thick of it, without any training, and the enemy is hunting them. All they have on their side is the most artful sergeant in the army and a vampire with a lust for coffee. Well...they also have the Secret. And as they take the war to the heart of the enemy, they have to use all the resources of the Monstrous Regiment.

"Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent...incredibly funny...compulsively readable." (The Times)
im 37 ive been reading since i was 3 i love fantasy, horror, historical fiction, some sci fi . ilove the classics
im not sure if this is typical of all abridged versions however if youve read the book you will be disappointed. Tony robinson is great however a story cant help but suffer when huge chunks are cut out.take my advise search for an unabridged version, buy the cd or just buy the book, terry pratchett cant possibly be proud of this version
This was an experiment for me. Prior to this, I'd already read the print version of every book I'd downloaded, and to the point that when listening to an abridged version, I'd know precisely where the editor had cut and pasted. This was the first bok I hadn't yet read, and I have to say, it did not change the level of enjoyment one bit. Tony Robinson was brilliant here, as always.
As always Terry Pratchett delivers a great story and Tony Robinson brings it to life.
