    Story
    "another Very enjoyable book by Terry Pratchett."

    Another Very enjoyable book by Terry Pratchett. Also very well read by the narrator Ceilia Imrie. perfect again for a mainly female themed book. Now on to the next in the series.

    "Dissatisfied"

    The story was good but the performance was a let down and what's with the odd noise in-between each chapter?😞

    Story
    "How to ruin a Prachett book."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better sound quality and a different narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hard to say as I gave up on it.


    What character would you cut from Wyrd Sisters?

    Doubt I'd cut any, as rare I hate a character in Terry's books.


    Any additional comments?

    I used to read stacks of books a year, but after having a partial failure of my eyesight two years ago I've had to switch to audiobooks instead. Currently I'm going through the list of disc world books, but not really in order, as it doesn't matter hugely with his books. I just read the character progression books in order. IE first city watch and then the rest etc.

    This book is ruined though for me by dreadful quality in sound. I download all my books in enhanced audio, but this sounds like it was ported directly off an old tape version. Not what I'd expect to hear. Then add in that the narration is very poor. Seems like she has no idea of what Prachett books are about and hence some of the humour is not really dealt with at all.

    Seriously, listen to Steven Briggs voice the witches in the Tiffany Aching series and see the difference in how to narrate a book. Night and day comparison. Shame he wasn't in the mix at this time, as even Nigel Planer would have been better, and he did take over after this book I believe for the Witches series.

    I gave up on the book sadly. And considering this is the 24th book of his I've listened too - of which I loved 23 of them - you can understand how much the narration must have annoyed me for it to cause me to pack in listening to it.

    Story
    "The narration doesn't match the humour..."
    Would you try another book written by Terry Pratchett or narrated by Celia Imrie?

    I've read and listened to most of Terry Pratchett's books, call me sad but they make great duvet day books with little pearls of wisdom thrown in for good measure. Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg are two of my favourite characters but the soppy voice of Celia Imrie just doesn't match up the the characters in my view. Please re-record it using either one of the two stalwart TP narrators...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nanny Ogg


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

    Julie Walters!

    "Sorry"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Like everybody else the excellent actress C. I. is just not in the same league as N. Planer and S. Briggs. Her voices and characterisation do not match up.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    No more to be said really

    Story
    "well I thought it was good"
    Where does Wyrd Sisters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not the best, not the worst, pretty good really on the whole


    What did you like best about this story?

    What's not to like, Macbeth on the discworld. It's hilarious.


    What three words best describe Celia Imrie’s voice?

    I didn't think she was as bad as all the other reviewers made out. I just turned the bass down and the treble up and it was fine. It worked a lot better having a talented female actress playing the mostly female cast than a male voice.


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

    All of Terry pratchett's books make me laugh. This is no exception


    Any additional comments?

    Not as bad as all that but who cares what I think, it's your money.

    "great story let down badly by the story teller"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would not change the book in any way however the story teller does not do the book any justice. she tells it far to seriously with no irony.


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

    no


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    yes

    Story
    "The worst audio quality ever"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Great book and despite other comments I quite like the narration. But the audio quality is just shocking. I have not heard audio quality so bad since listening to badly recorded, half magnetised tape recordings on my sony walkman in the 80s. Really really poor. Bottom end distortion and the audio levels drop in and out constantly. The colour of magic was bad but this is worse. On listening to two now I can't see buying another which makes me sad as there is no excuse really.

    "Brilliant book"
    Where does Wyrd Sisters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's been one of my favourite audio books think Celia Imrie is brilliant at reading the witch books


    What other book might you compare Wyrd Sisters to, and why?

    Really enjoyed snuff read by Stephen Briggs for the same reason I enjoyed this one think both narrators capture the characters voices in the way I heard them in my head


    What about Celia Imrie’s performance did you like?

    Think the different voices she uses for the witch characters is brilliant


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

    Made me laugh whilst walking to work which got me a few strange looks from other people out that early


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely recommend you listen to this book just wish she had narrated all the witch books

    Story
    "Tortuous"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Celia Imrie is a superb actress, however her narration of this book is a severe disappointment. Add to this the poor sound quality and the whole thing is a let down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is a wonderful skit on Macbeth and Hamlet, written with Pratchett's typically wicked sense of humour. As the first of the full blown "Witches" books, it sets up the characters well for their appearances throughout the Discworld series.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration is badly paced and the characterisations are, on the whole, poor. Add to this that, at times, she sounds like she's reading the television news and this makes for a very boring listen.


    Any additional comments?

    A good story ruined by a poor narration.
