Soul Music: Discworld, Book 16 | [Terry Pratchett]

Soul Music: Discworld, Book 16

Other children receive xylophones. Susan just had to ask her grandfather to take his vest off. Yes. There's a Death in the family. It's hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe: especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld. It's lawless. It changes people. It's called Music With Rocks In.

Publisher's Summary

Other children receive xylophones. Susan just had to ask her grandfather to take his vest off. Yes. There's a Death in the family. It's hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe: especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld. It's lawless. It changes people. It's called Music With Rocks In. It's got a beat and you can dance to it, but...it's alive. And it won't fade away.

"Classic English humour, with all the slapstick, twists, and dry observations you could hope for." (The Times)

    "disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    Has Soul Music turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I love listening to Terry Pratchett books, but I won't buy another abridged version!


    Have you listened to any of Tony Robinson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Tony Robinson himself is not the issue. He is a marvellous reader.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Soul Music?

    The opposite. I would not have cut any. That was the whole problem.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could get a refund!

    "Classic Pratchet"
    Any additional comments?

    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.
