Wintersmith: Discworld Book 35, (Discworld Childrens Book 4)

Tiffany Aching put one foot wrong, made one little mistake... and now the spirit of winter is in love with her. He gives her roses and icebergs, says it with avalanches and showers her with snowflakes - which is tough when you're 13, but also just a little bit... cool.

Publisher's Summary

Tiffany Aching put one foot wrong, made one little mistake...and now the spirit of winter is in love with her. He gives her roses and icebergs, says it with avalanches and showers her with snowflakes - which is tough when you're 13, but also just a little bit... cool.

And just because the Wintersmith wants to marry you is no excuse for neglecting your chores. So Tiffany must look after Miss Treason, who's 113 and has far too many eyes, learn the secret of Boffo, catch Horace the cheese, stop the gods from seeing her in the bath - "Crivens!" - Oh, yes, and be helped by the Nac Mac Feegles - whether she wants it or not.

But if Tiffany doesn't work it all out, there will never be another springtime.

    I hold a BA in History from York University of Toronto; a 3yr Diploma in Computer Networking from Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I have been "reading" audio books sinces the late 80s and a member of Audible back to 2004. What a really like is a good long story preferable over 30 hours. :)

    Story
    "The twist of the Seasons"

    Pratchett returns to the idea of belief and seasons. This should not off put anyone with strong views about what do believe in; rather this is about the effects of belief and how societies work with belief through charity; exchange and tradition.

    It's also light and funny. Morals without preaching but a dose of guilt. If you enjoy the others go right and head and dive in.

    "Enchanting!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Been a Pratchett fan for several years but shied away from Tiffany Aching tales thinking they would be too immature, was very wrong! Just as imaginative and vivid as other discworld novels, with the same underlying social commentary. Loved it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anything with the feegles!

    "The only joy to be found in winter"
    Would you listen to Wintersmith again? Why?

    I repeatedly listen and re-read Terry Pratchett's material as there is always something new to find.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    While the feegles are always a delight, and Tiffany a quintessential element my favourite character in the Wintersmith is Ms. Treason. As a witch who understands that perception is everything, she brings


    What does Stephen Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Stephen Briggs brings a voice tuned to Terry Pratchett's writings that is not present in other readers.

    "Magic!"

    Superb, I love all the Tiffany aching books so far but this is my favorite (have not yet listened to the unabridged 'I Shall Wear Midnight' My credits arrive in a few days!)This is the funniest Tiffany book so far and has lots of Nanny Ogg, my favorite Discworld character, and the Feegles are hilarious as always. Tiffany has really grown up in this story. Stephen Briggs is a superb reader as usual. I'm just sad that there is only one more after this. ' Wailey Wailey'

    "review from an avid Pratchett fan"

    I found this book very witty and well written, even though it's supposed to be a children's book it is a great read for adults too.

    Tiffany is a young witch with the weight of responsibility pressed upon her shoulders. She is a very bright and inquisitive young lady. She makes a mistake as we have all done in our lives at one time or another but she makes an attempt to put it right, find out how she gets on!
