Publisher's Summary

In Wyrd Sisters, the enchanting world of Discworld is turned upside down by 3 meddling witches: Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick. Their interference in royal politics causes kingdoms to wobble, crowns to topple, knives to flash, and citizens to shudder in fear. Terry Pratchett's vividly imaginative story takes you on a journey with hunchbacked monarchs, lost crowns, disguised heirs, refueling broomsticks, and frightening thunderstorms, as the three sisters battle the odds to restore the rightful king to the throne. This is the sixth book in the Discworld series.

    "The pacing is a little poor"

    The reader did a fine job but truthfully the pacing on this is a little slow and it should've been picked up a bit.
    It's too bad because these are such great stories and the director did not really allow the performers to pick the pace up to get the reader more engaged

    Story
    "Painful Narration"
    What did you love best about Wyrd Sisters?

    I love the Discword books, love Terry Pratchett's humor and writing style.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I still haven't been able to make it past the first hour of narration. The narration could be used for anesthesia for dental work. It makes one drowsy, but at the same time is very painful.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Celia Imrie’s performances?

    Nope. Never. Never ever. No way. Not in my lifetime. Absolutely not. No.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Wacky witches.


    Any additional comments?

    TERRIBLE NARRATION.

    "Delighted in Wyrd Sisters"

    All the Disk is a stage and the narrator brought all the characters to life except when they were dieing and even then Death was to be enjoyed. Terry Pratchett delightfully steered the Disk into the dark territory of Macbeth and other Shakespeareian tragedy.

    Story
    "Poor Quality Recording"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I can't really comment on the story because the recording is so bad. I could barely make out the narration. I agree with other reviews that the story is hard to follow I would return this if I could.


    Would you recommend Wyrd Sisters to your friends? Why or why not?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Celia Imrie?

    Maybe


    Do you think Wyrd Sisters needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    These characters appear in another pratchett series.

    "Fabulous !!"

    This is my favorite in the series. If you like the idea of funny smart powerful and wise witches this is for you. It can be fun for al l ages. Adults will have to relax and let this funny world whisk you off to fantasy land. It's a mini vacation. His unique, cleaver, play on words are a joy I never tire of. He is my favorite Au

    "The narrator was very hard to understand"

    The narrator tried her best to give each character a distinctive voice but there were times I just couldn't understand a word she was saying. Not being able to understand the narrator ruined the the book for me. I should have listened to the other reviewers and skipped this audiobook.

    Story
    "Needs an update :/"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wyrd Sisters to be better than the print version?

    Probably, it's great hearing the voice work done by Celia Imrie and Terry Pratchett's words are always wonderful to listen to when they're delivered with finesse, but the recording sounds like it was done around the time it was written.

    I'm not picky when it comes to audio quality, but even I am a little perturbed when you have to turn it all the way up just to hear over the static and crackling, and then when you DO turn it up, you can hear a different track playing extremely quietly! Seems like some kind of strange side effect from being recorded on tape and being transferred to digital, maybe?


    What did you like best about this story?

    The writing and the dialog are amazing! As per par with Terry Pratchett.


    What aspect of Celia Imrie’s performance would you have changed?

    Not much! There were a few lines (like the first in the book) that were delivered in a shocking fashion, but once you grow accustom to it, it only increases the immersion and hilarity.

    Just wish it wasn't recorded in the 80's.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Of course! It's Pratchett. I laughed almost the whole way through.

    "Back and forth"

    Although the person reading the story was was quite engaging, the disparity between the high and low volume portions was rather irritating.

    "I could not understand the narrator easily."

    It was hard to understand the narrator. I usually read Audible books while working, but I had to give this story my undivided attention to understand what was going on.
