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.

    "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.

    "Wonderful book!"

    The audio quality of the book was rather poor, but I adored the narrator. Great story! The witch novels are awesome!

    "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.

    "Loved the Narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought the Narrator did a wonderful job. I know others are complaining that her characters sounded over the top. I thought the dramatic voicing made it much easier for me to know when which character is speaking. I really enjoyed it.

    "Amazing Voice talent"
    What about Celia Imrie’s performance did you like?

    For a long time I resisted listening to audiobooks that are just a single person reading the book- only downloading full dramatizations. I just found a single narrator to be sleep inducing. I guess I had tried listening to the wrong readers. The ones they got for the Terry Pratchett novels do a wonderful job, and Ms. Imrie is particularly fantastic. I would rewind passages just to listen to her magnificently changeable voice do its thing again.

    Story
    "Pratchett at his zany best!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wyrd Sisters to be better than the print version?

    Not sure what kind of question this is really... Um, the print version is fantastic. The audio version is great as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really like the witches and any Pratchett novel featuring them is a winner (although I could say that about a lot of Pratchett's main characters).


    Which character – as performed by Celia Imrie – was your favorite?

    Nanny Ogg is spot on!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All the moments move you to laugh. This is satire and not particularly emotional unless you count hapless laughter as an emotion.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read/listen!

    "Good narrator, bad narration editing"

    The story was fun and more or less what I expected. The narrator was actually pretty good too. Whoever edited this though did a terrible job. They seem to have spliced in long pauses or taken chunks of the narrator's voice and split them apart. The result is a lot of awkward pauses thrown into the narration at weird places. I was never quite sure when a sentence finished. It decidedly detracted from the experience.

    "Time to revisit this one"

    The quality of the audio was poor. It seemed as if this may be an old recording. The narrator had some odd pauses that didn't make sense. Compared to my last few books on Audible this was disappointing.
