"The start of a wonderful journey across the Disc."
I always had trouble reading The Colour of Magic, it's so different from the other Discworld books. But listening to the story unfold has been an amazing treat full of laughs and weird fantasy.
The recording could be better, it's muffled in places and is sometimes hard to hear.
"First TP story"
Fancied something a little different and wasn't disappointed. Good story, imaginatively created and very well read. At some points I actually forgot that it's the same person doing all the characters. Nigel brings each to life in a way that makes the story play out in your minds eye and very believable.
"Well read but poor sound quality."
Always loved Terry Pratchett and the story was well read. However the sound quality was intermittent and at times very poor.
"Most enjoyable book"
Enjoyed going back to where the Discworld began. Nigel Planer's reading was excellent, good characterisations. Looking forward to hearing more in the series.
"Love disk world"
A great first book, full of all you expect it to be.
Terry Pratchett is a fab author.
"Very poor sound quality"
Overall very disappointed with the sound quality which impacted the performance. It is an excellent book and this did not do it justice.
very original. great narrator. looking forward to number 2!! echoing is a bit weird but its just parts and you work out why after a while.
"Great but with naff sound quality"
I really enjoyed the book. The sound quality was really dodgy and had me checking headphones etc.
loved it, had a bit if a grainy tinge to the recording but loved it
"Utterly abysmal Audio"
The abysmal quality of the recording. Nigel Planer does a great job, the story is beyond reproach, however it has apparently been recorded using equipment sourced from the 70s.
