Publisher's Summary

It starts with whispers.

Then someone picks up a stone.

Finally, the fires begin.

When people turn on witches, the innocents suffer. . . .

Tiffany Aching has spent years studying with senior witches, and now she is on her own. As the witch of the Chalk, she performs the bits of witchcraft that aren't sparkly, aren't fun, don't involve any kind of wand, and that people seldom ever hear about: She does the unglamorous work of caring for the needy.

But someone - or something - is igniting fear, inculcating dark thoughts and angry murmurs against witches. Aided by her tiny blue allies, the Wee Free Men, Tiffany must find the source of this unrest and defeat the evil at its root - before it takes her life. Because if Tiffany falls, the whole Chalk falls with her.

Chilling drama combines with laugh-out-loud humor and searing insight as beloved and bestselling author Terry Pratchett tells the high-stakes story of a young witch who stands in the gap between good and evil.

    "Which witch?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of I Shall Wear Midnight to be better than the print version?

    I don't know I don't get to read much these days


    What other book might you compare I Shall Wear Midnight to and why?

    The Wee Free Men, its another Tiffany Aching book, she's all grown up, and its hard to compare Sir Terry to any other author, he's just so unique.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Briggs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I prefer Stephen Briggs for my Discworld books if I can at all manage it. He just nails it.


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

    Not particular, its interesting, fun to listen to, and for re-reads it makes a great listen until you fall asleep book. .

    Story
    "Wonderful for kids and parents"
    Would you consider the audio edition of I Shall Wear Midnight to be better than the print version?

    We loved the narrators performance. Our lives are the richer for Stephen Briggs' Feegles (sp? the trouble with listening instead of reading). I could have done without the music between chapters, but that is a minor complaint in an overall delightful experience.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tiffany is the best female character we've come across in literature. She doesn't rely on some powers granted to her out of the blue, but on her own good sense, courage, sense of duty, and kindness


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Briggs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    We love the whole series and will look for more books narrated by Stephen Briggs


    Who was the most memorable character of I Shall Wear Midnight and why?

    Tiffany, Rob Anybody, Granny Aching (even posthumously).

    "Listened to this one twice!"

    Very enjoyable continuation of Tiffany Aching's adventures. Sad to think that Terry Pratchett just passed away. X X X X.

    "At his best in this book!"

    Always thought provoking and entertaining, true to life: which is to say dire, beautiful and hilariously funny by turns, and sometimes all at once... Read perfectly by Stephen Briggs.

    "The last Tiffany Achin book, probably."

    I always choose Stephen Briggs narrations first when buying Pratchett. Others disagree. I own almost all in download or CDs, and all the books. I Shall Wear Midnight is one of T P's fav books as well as one of mine. This book ties up a great deal and brings together most of the great witch characters for the big finale. And burping goats.

    "Excellent pratchett as usual"

    Narration and story line are excellent as usual. Just when you think you have the story figured out, and can tell what will happen next, you are pleasantly surprised. Excellent for binge listening.

    Story
    "I Shall Wear Midnight"
    Would you listen to I Shall Wear Midnight again? Why?

    Yes, Mr. Pratchetts works are funny and dense enough to almost always call for several readings/


    What other book might you compare I Shall Wear Midnight to and why?

    It is right there with the first Tiffany Aching novel. Very well done.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Briggs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Stephen Briggs is always a joy to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, only because there is a lot going on and one should really sip, to taste it properly rather than gulp, and miss half the fun.


    Any additional comments?

    Read anything that you can get by Terry Pratchett. It will be one of the better things you can do for yourself. Always enjoyable.
