    "Finally available in North America"

    Quite a lot of the Discworld books were only availabe in abridged versions in north america. Was very very happy to see that has been remedied. I enjoyed Reaper Man very much, both the story itself and the Narration by Nigel Planer, whom I have found to be excellent reading these stories. I'm going to be using a lot of credits now....

    "What can the harvest hope for..."
    Where does Reaper Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Amongst the audiobooks I have listened to I would rank Reaper Man very highly - perhaps even higher than Mort - which was the book thar introduced me to the Discworld...Thank you Sir Terry for everything. The audio is much cleaner throughout than Mort allowing some of the more unusual jokes to be better understood.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character throughout was Death/Bill Door as for a character who is NORMALLY distinctly non-human you feel his emotions and his genuine respect for the 'harvest' thar comes with the duty. Even when he doesn't understand something he honestly does try.


    What about Nigel Planer’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed Planer's performance mostly because he was able to make me empathise with all the important characters, ranging from Poons to Lupine to hatred of the Auditors. He is a narrator that can make you feel the emotion in the text as well as clear difference in the voices to tell who is talking. To quote the text: "NEVER A CROWN."


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many moments that moved me however they could well be considered spoilers. Therefore I will quote one. "WHAT CAN THE HARVEST HOPE FOR, IF NOT FOR THE CARE OF THE REAPER MAN?"


    Any additional comments?

    This book comes highly recommended. And once again thank you Sir Terry.

    "A great listen"

    There is a particular quote towards the end about death that seemed very fitting listening to this audiobook after Sir Terry Pratchett's death.

    "Great book!"

    Audio quality wasn't amazing, but the story was great! Maybe upload a slightly higher bitrate audio file audible? Don't miss out on this book just because of the audio though, it's still worth a listen!

    "Death unfurled"

    A lovely story about Death HIMSELF. it brings out how the character has built up a personality that charms and wins you over. The auditors appear a number of times within stories, to see them defeated again makes you feel warm inside. There's even some deadly romance that made me laugh out loud.

    "Bringing Death to life"

    The combination of Pratchett's story with Planer's narration truly brings this book to life, far more than any screenplay could. A perfect combination of talents for a story full of life. I have listened to this many times and will no doubt listen many more!
