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?
The writing and the dialog are amazing! As per par with Terry Pratchett.
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.
Of course! It's Pratchett. I laughed almost the whole way through.
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.
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.
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.
Old Bear likes the honey
Not sure what kind of question this is really... Um, the print version is fantastic. The audio version is great as well.
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).
Nanny Ogg is spot on!
All the moments move you to laugh. This is satire and not particularly emotional unless you count hapless laughter as an emotion.
Say something about yourself!
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.
The performance was great to listen to specially the different witch voices. The story was great the dry humorous sarcastic tone of the story surprise me. It was fantastic
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.
