"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
"Not the best performance in the series, but a grea"
great first novel to an amazing series. I personally think the author honed his writing style over time, but still thoroughly enjoyable.
"The quality of the recording really let this down."
The quality of the recording really let this down. The volumes changed regularly and some became hissy or crackly
"Not very good at all"
Different book different production of the narration
The delivery was average and the silly reverb effect at the beginning was poor
I suppose if you were a died in the wool Pratchett fan it would be something to listen to
Mediocre author and mediocre delivery
"Highly imaginative and fun to listen to!"
It's a colourful and bizzare story that you can't help get engrossed in. The story lurches from one crazy imaginative world to another through a series of crises that befall the main characters Twoflower (a tourist from a far land) and Rinsewind (an incompetent wizard). Definitely recommend, I will be carrying on with the rest of the books after this!
"The beginning of magic"
Absolutely brilliant narration by Nigel Planner in retro style.
A failed wizard Rincewind and his adventures, which make you laugh to tears.
Dragons fight and when Rincewind and Twoflower are at the edge of the world.
Dragons who believe in Rincewind but he doesn't believe in them.
very fast read and poor quality audio files, also over complex character settings at start
"Great, but concentrate."
This is a great story but it was easy to get lost, if this had been the first Discworld novel id rwsd I don't think I would have read more. The narration was very good, each voice sounded unique.
"Great classic, shame about poor audio quality"
Despite the poor quality and volume changing this is still worth getting as this is a classic story the launched a whole crazy but clever world of Terry Pratchett.
"Great intro, awful sound quality"
Great story introducing Discworld, and great performance from Nigel Planer but the sound quality is awful. Muffled audio in places, and volume fluctuates very noticeably. A shame, as it's a wonderful book.
