Im a big Pratchett fan; I have been disapointed in the quality and availability of my favorite books. Several of his diskworld books are unavailable on audio. Others, like this one seem to have been poorly translated from a worn out tape recording: Lots of background noise, and even a "side three" interjection! I will be looking for a different provider of audio books in the future.
the recording, while done very well by a narrator that I enjoy a lot, sounded like a recording of a recording of a recording. the book was a little more cliched and tedious than some other of Terry pratchett's works but it was still enjoyable to listen to despite occasionally not being able to hear some of the words due to the poor recording.
The story is great, Nigel is superb, audio muffled, needs re-recording or the audio in order to up it's quality in comparison to the other audio books.
I love lots of Discworld novels, but this one felt weak to me. I just couldn't feel sympathetic with any of the characters. I also wish that it was more about death and Susan than Buddy and his gang. Still a good read.
I often find myself hating the narrator of these early Discworld novels, but that always gets swept aside by the story Pratchett weaves. Sadly, the original recorders of this audio book did a terrible job and the sound is often muffled or way to quiet.
Very well read. Somewhat muffled audio quality. Funny concept with good characters, but at times a bit disconnected and too forcibly satirical. Not as good as Small Gods, but still very entertaining.
