"Unadulterated fun. Pratchett parodies everything in sight." (San Francisco Chronicle)
Good listen :) I love the Watch books. Carrot, Vimes, and Angua are some of my favorite Disc World characters.
I gave performance 4 stars because I've listened to many Discworld books on Audible and Nigel Planter does an unparalleled job at acting out the characters and scenes. He did not voice this book.
Book is fantastic and narration is flawless. Briggs brings out the essence of Pratchett's characters with his voice, keeping the listener engaged to the end.
I am already a huge Terry Pratchett fan and was impressed with the reader's cadence and comedic timing. this was my first listen and I have already downloaded another.
I always love Discworld novels and this one is no different. The characters are always hilarious even if their situations aren't. Exactly what I wanted to listen to until I couldn't stay awake any longer.
Love this story, it's one of my favorite Discworld books. But Nigel Planer > Steven Briggs. Maybe I'm biased because I heard the first half of the series narrated by Planer but switching to Briggs was jarring. Meh.
