Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: Interpreting an imagination as outrageous (and beloved) as Terry Pratchett's poses interesting challenges: What exactly does a Feegle sound like? Luckily, narrator Stephen Briggs is up to the task, and gives voice to witch-in-training Tiffany Aching and the wildly magical characters of Pratchett's third young adult novel with delight, panache, and a bit of playful abandon. Listeners have called Brigg's rendition of Rob Anybody his "crowning achievement". —Ed Walloga

Publisher's Summary

Tiffany Aching, the boldest heroine ever to swing a frying pan against the forces of evil, is beginning her apprenticeship in magic. She expects to work hard, learn spells, and become a witch. She doesn't expect to find herself doing chores, caring for the careless, and trying to outthink an ill-tempered nanny goat. There must be more to witchcraft than this!

But as Tiffany pursues her calling, an insidious, disembodied creature pursues Tiffany. When it strikes, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the six-inch-high Wee Free Men (the greatest thieves in the world) can save her.

Outrageous comedy blends with pulse-racing suspense in this compelling sequel to The Wee Free Men.

©2004 Terry Pratchett; (P)2004 HarperCollins Publishers, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"Compelling and hilarious. Stephen Briggs's superb narration brings to life the trials, setbacks, and triumphs of Tiffany, as well as Pratchett's trademark humor. Briggs's performance is finely tuned and gives clear nuance to the characters." (AudioFile)

    "Great Story, Fine Performance"

    There are some really beautiful, lyrical bits in this book, as well add some great character moments and the narrator does a fine job with them. I really enjoyed it.

    "Another Achingly Fine Work From Sir Terry"

    Having read this before reading the other witch books, I had a different perspective on Granny Weatherwax. I highly recommend revisiting Pratchett's works rather than having one read through and thinking that is all one can get. Reading a Discworld novel once would be like tasting a single piece of chocolate and never having another bit out of the sampler box.

    "Another riveting journey"

    Yet another nail-biting story by Terry Pratchett and a masterful performance by Stephen Briggs. I bought this book a few days ago and now have to wait a whole month before I can continue the adventures of Tiffany and the Wee Free Men. Hooray for witches and common sense!

    This is a great book read by one of the best voices imaginable. Stephen Briggs and Jim Dale are the best voices out there!

    "Even better than the one before"

    Loved every moment of it.
    I also appreciated it more after reading Pratchett's short story in A Blink of the Screen, which features many of the same characters, in another annual witches' trials.
