Publisher's Summary

Cameras roll - which means the imps inside have to paint really fast - on the fantastic Discworld when the alchemists discover the magic of the silver screen. But what is the dark secret of Holy Wood hill? As the alien cliches of Tinsel Town pour into the world, it's up to the Disc's first film stars to find out...

Thrill as Victor Tugelbend ("Can't sing. Can't dance. Can handle a sword a little.") and Theda Withel ("I come from a little town you've probably never even heard of") battle the forces of evil and cinema advertising...

Scream as Gaspode the Wonder Dog nearly saves the day...

Eat popcorn as you watch the filming of Blown Away, the oddest Civil War picture ever made... "A Passionate Saga set Against the Background of a World Gone Mad! With a Thousand Elephants!"

(And afterwards, why not dine at Harga's House of Ribs, for the best in international cuisine; only two minutes from this book...).

    "Terry Pratchett at his best."

    The story is compelling. I only wish the narrator used more inflection. Very good story.

    Story
    "another fine disworld"
    Any additional comments?

    Another fine one in the Discworld saga. New characters this round; I think first introduction of Gaspode the Wonder Dog. He's a small terrier/mutt living in Ankh-Morpork who can speak like a human being. I've read them all several times, but I find that a listen gives new breath to the stories and I see it all again- for the first time! Enjoy.

    Story
    "Fun, but would be better if I knew Hollywood"
    What made the experience of listening to Moving Pictures the most enjoyable?

    For whatever reason, I loved the dog voices by the narrator in this one. It made the book really fun and added extra humor beyond the story itself.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is really funny in how it finds a way to make moving pictures work in the world of discworld. Seeing the merchants, wizards, and alchemists bicker over things added a nice dimension.


    What does Nigel Planer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The dogs! It was great having an extra layer of humor with the excellent voices for the different characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Film studio ruins the planet in a world gone mad.

    What made the experience of listening to Moving Pictures the most enjoyable?

    The narration was the best I've heard yet. It is always enjoyable, but he absolutely killed it on this one.

    "Terry Pratchett does it again!"

    Welcome to Holy Wood! This is a very engaging discworld tale that mixes movie magic with "real" magic with some very engaging results. Gaspar, the wonder dog, makes an appearance along with other characters both familiar and new. Another great read.

    "The story of Gaspo the wonder dog"

    This is a great telling of Terry Pratchett's book, totally worth the listen. Both the story and narration are superb! Gaspo the Wonder Dog is a great hero in the story!

    "Great book"

    Well written and creative book. Entertaining story. Good reader who really brings out the characters. Terry Pratchett is great at showing us how silly people are by making a parody of the way things really are.

    "Moving Pictures - Terry Pratchett"

    Quite Quite brilliant. Every cliche in the book, but with wonderful twists. References just about every Hollywood classic movie that you have ever seen or heard of. Gaspode is a creation of genius, although a great deal of credit must go to Nigel Planner here. The best Pratchett I have yet come across, and I have enjoyed them all so far.
