"Classic English humour, with all the slapstick, twists, and dry observations you could hope for." (The Times)
I did not realize this was the abridged version. I love Terry Pratchett, but his plots are so intricate and weave in so many characters that the 3 hour condensed version just jumped around all over. It was really difficult to follow.
I love listening to Terry Pratchett books, but I won't buy another abridged version!
Tony Robinson himself is not the issue. He is a marvellous reader.
The opposite. I would not have cut any. That was the whole problem.
I wish I could get a refund!
"I often overlook this gem in the discworld cannon"
I am gradually aquiring the series digitally having loved them on cd for years, I had forgotten how much I loved some of the more stand alone books. Tony Robinson's narration is wonderful as always and the book is witty and funny. Just lovely.
"love T.P and this was no dissapointment xx"
Great story. Love how well Tony reads all the T.P books and look forward to collecting them all !
Tony Robinson's performance seems to me to be perfectly matched to Terry Pratchett's Discworld, and Soul Music is no exception. The book has a wealth of great characters, from the rock playing troll, Cliff, to Susan, the logical and reluctant granddaughter of death, to the crew of rebellious eighty year old wizards. The book is extremely quotable ("Be there or be a rectangular thinge") and a good story all round.
