"Unadulterated fun. Pratchett parodies everything in sight." (San Francisco Chronicle)
I am a homemaker with 2 older children and several hobbies. I love diy projects and listening to audiobooks while doing them.
I have never read or heard a Terry Pratchett book that I didn't like. This one was no exception. Great listen!
I already knew I loved this book. I've read every Discworld novel, and always enjoy the humor, wit, and subtle poignancy of the tales Sir Pratchett crafts. But this narration adds another layer of enjoyment to an already wonderful book. Each character's voice has carefully performed individuality, with the added joy of amusing regional accents and affectations. This might be the crowning jewel of Briggs' narrations, and is not to be missed. Enjoy!
While TP never goes wrong in story line and characterization, he really should have stuck with Nigel Planer. I find Briggs to be flat and lacking the depth of tone Nigel always brought to the audio.
I have listened to most all of the Discworld series and loved all of them. I thought that perhaps by number 2424 Sir Terry would have run out of steam. Wrong! This has to rank right at the top of my favorites. The plot is more involved, characters more developed, laughs just as copious. So many times i wanted to stop and write down the wonderful one-liners.
Thoroughly enjoyed the igor scenes, packed in with many other hilarious moments,and a clever mystery. Death isn't a character, but he makes a delightful cameo.
