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.

    "I'm a wally for getting it without listening to a"

    ...sample. terrible audio quality and slow, lifeless narration. assumed Celia imrie would be good but there was no pace. kept thinking it had stopped but it was the pauses. give me Stephen Briggs every time!

    "Great book - poor performance."

    Word Sisters is one of my absolute favourite Pratchetts, and has been since it was first published 30-ish years ago. It's TP at his best: hilarious, rich with comic allusion, tightly plotted and with some of his most iconic characters.
    I have many of his books on audiobook, but for some reason never had this. But I'm spending a lot of time in the car at the moment and thought I'd treat myself - what a disappointment!
    Celia Imrie is a great comic TV actress - but for some reason she just doesn't 'get' this. The plot loses momentum, and there are just too many wrong emphases. Presented with the gift of the glorious Nanny Ogg she gives us someone insipid and vaguely peevish, and loses the impact of the innuendo completely. Granny Weatherwax seems to fade into the landscape and at times is indistinguishable from Nanny Ogg.
    The book's still wonderful- but if this was the first Pratchett I'd ever listened to it would certainly have put me off.

    "Wyrd Sisters"

    Terry Pratchett's homage to William Shakespeare. Telling the story from the viewpoint of the three witches. Hilariously.

    "Impossible to understand the narrator"
    Would you listen to Wyrd Sisters again? Why?

    Absolutely not, unless recorded with some other narrator. I will definitely not buy any book narrated by Celia Imrie (sorry).


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

    Nigel Panner - excellent job with "Witches abroad" by the same author

    "no."

    I love Terry Pratchett's discworld series, especially the witches, but in this case, do yourself a favour and do not get this audiobook. while the story itself is marvelous, the performance is atrocious. The voices are irritating, while the whole narration is so slow it would be faster if you just ran to your nearest bookstore and bought the book. I had to force myself to finish listening to it. the audio quality isn't great either.
    What I want to know, is who let this woman read the book???

    "Great story ruined by narrator"

    This was the first Terry Pratchett book I ever read and I have listened to many of them competently narrated. This was read badly that I abandoned, found the tatty old paperback copy and went back to reading it with my eyes instead of my ears. Who is "Guyther Og"? It is Gytha! What the unnecessary pauses breaking up the flow of a sentence? Why the horrible laughter and dreadful characterisation. Could you please get someone to record the story properly?

    Story
    "Not just poor but annoying"
    What would have made Wyrd Sisters better?

    Listen this story is good. The person in charge of this should be sacked. It is woeful. What on earth made them think it was a good idea to slip in ridiculously badly acted voices with silly amounts of reverb and make the editing sound as if it was slotted in by some drunk work placement student? The very very worst Audible effort I have heard. Celia isn't great either. Her voices are really not suitable for the work and her croaking is difficult to hear what she is saying sometimes.

    Last comment. What was on Pratchett's mind when he insisted on the extremely rude and deeply unpleasant warning about infringing his copyright at the start? It does not give a good impression of him at all. It was insulting and completely pointless. Disgraceful and very annoying. I've never heard any other author behave so appallingly towards someone who has just bought one of his works. I wish Audible had declined to have anything to do with them to be honest.


    What didn’t you like about Celia Imrie’s performance?

    The author's insistence on a threatening tirade about copyright at the beginnning of the book. I wish Audible had told him to forget it.

    "Ruined by the narrator"

    I love this book and all the Discworld novels but I had to give up on this after 4 hours.
    The narrator made this very hard to listen to and by the voices used showed that she had no understanding of the characters. Nanny should never sound as frail as in this recording. A waste of a credit.

    "Don't bother"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The reader Celia Imrie has no idea what she's doing. there is no rhythm to the story and the characters are very poorly portrayed.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Nothing!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    N/A


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyed at having wasted good money on an excellent book ruined by the reader


    Any additional comments?

    These books read by Celia Imrie need to be read by Stephen Briggs
