This seems to be a direct copy of a poor recording. This would need to be digitally remastered.
"Hiss hiss can hiss you hiss read hiss thissss"
It has been said many times before. This product is poorly recorded. They call it vintage, but even my home made cassettes of the 80's sound better than this. To charge full price is just plain wrong. This could all be cleared up by a session of remastering.
Only buy if it's on offer or you are desperate to have this in your collection.
Oh yes, I nearly forgot. Great story, OK performance. Just too much hiss.
the audio quality warning was a bit of a red flag prior to listening, but it really wasn't bad at all, this is a must listen for any fiction fan.
Awesome.... It's going to take me a while to get through all of these!!!! Totally addicting if you like this kind of thing you won't regret it.
This audio book is unreal I'm dyslexic and I have always wanted to read disk world and now I can listen to while in bed this makes me happy!!!
"Fabulous yarn, well read but hard to follow"
I am now three books in to this series, and I love it. The performances have all been top notch (although I did prefer Celia Imrie's reading of Equal Rites, the third book) and the stories are absorbing. However, I did find it hard to follow the plot of The Colour of Magic, the first book of the series; I got halfway through and felt the need to start again. The story is lovely, but it was easier to follow second time around, when I already had some understanding of the way it worked and what the world was like. I had the same trouble when I tried to read the book years ago. I never did get to the end of it then!
"Great book and acting, quality of recording so so"
Very creative and funny story! acting is great as well! brings it very much to life! but the sound quality is not great and it does get hard to hear at points.
"Love terry pratchet books"
and this is the perfect introduction. the only problem is the sound quality changes every few chapters it's never bad it's just mildly annoying.
"loved the detail!"
confusing at times (maybe because I listen to it as a go to sleep...) but totally worth it for the amazing story
"Great story well read terrible sound quality"
Read great by Nigel Planer as usual but the audio quality was shocking! Terrible effects on some voices and between scenes, thin scratchy sound with lots of hiss, avoid this its a dissapointment
