I enjoyed the story but the narrator was kind of blah. His voice seems to drone in a way that makes me lose attention.
Would you listen to Guards! Guards! again? Why?
Yup- it's a great story with some wonderful characters. But it is hard putting up with Nigel Planer's voices! He doesn't seem to have a very wide set of 'go to' accents and vocal choices, so he defaults to nasal, slow, and dull. They sound like bad cartoons.
What three words best describe Nigel Planer’s voice?
Usually adenoidal. Planer does a bunch a voices, but manages to make most of our heros sound really dense. Vimes, Carrot, and Angua all sound dull and unthinking, which is totally wrong for the characters!
Performance was stellar, story is interesting and full of laughs! Absolutely will be following up on this series!
I've loved the series so far; and, after the brilliant political and religious satire of Pyramids, I thought surely Sir Pratchett needed a miss to balance out the scales of mortal creative progression. The rather unengaging title of #8 had me confident in expecting exactly that.
I could not have been more wrong. This is the best yet. I lost track of how many times I laughed out loud. His style is refined and excellent. Had he only scratched the surface of his creative potential by this point? Every book has been better than the last - how long will that go on?
It's astonishing how fun the language is, I have never experienced a book like it.
Nigel makes this series what it is for me. him and Pratchett go together like lime and coconut
Didn't love the voice choice for a few of the characters. Other than that, good narration of a terrific book.
the review requires at least twenty words. that's greater than or equal to twenty, can't have just nineteen words... the title says all I care to say about this book.
I couldn't stop myself from finishing this one, nearly in one sitting. I stayed up well past my bedtime just to hear more.
This story begins the series of Discworld books centered on The Watch, and it is just as engrossing now as it was when I first read the physical copy.
Terry Pratchett has written another fan-diddly-tastic book. Very entertaining, fantastic performance. Carrot is hilarious and adorable.
