Publisher's Summary

On the planet of Discworld, phrases like "there's a Death in the family" take on a whole new meaning. Young Susan has always suspected that her Grandfather was different, as though all the time he spent riding a white horse and wielding a scythe weren't enough of a giveaway. Now that her worst fears have been confirmed, Susan learns that she's expected to take over the family business when she grows up, even though most people mistake her for the Tooth Fairy. But as attractive as Death can be to many people, Susan is drawn into something else: the exciting, addictive heavy beats of "Music with Rocks In," Discworld's latest dance craze.

    "Audio fixed!"

    This is another great Terry Pratchett book. I bought it several months ago but returned it due to poor audio quality - just bought it again and discovered Audible fixed it! Nigel Planer's unbeatable Death impression comes through clear as a bell. :)

    "Audio Quality is an Issue"

    One of my favorite Pratchett books. I definitely enjoyed the narration. The audio quality fades in and out. It's like listening to a bootleg of cassettes.

    "not worth the price, barely worth the credit."

    Im a big Pratchett fan; I have been disapointed in the quality and availability of my favorite books. Several of his diskworld books are unavailable on audio. Others, like this one seem to have been poorly translated from a worn out tape recording: Lots of background noise, and even a "side three" interjection! I will be looking for a different provider of audio books in the future.

    "the recording, while done very well by a narrator "

    the recording, while done very well by a narrator that I enjoy a lot, sounded like a recording of a recording of a recording. the book was a little more cliched and tedious than some other of Terry pratchett's works but it was still enjoyable to listen to despite occasionally not being able to hear some of the words due to the poor recording.

    "Audio sounds muffled, re-recording needed."

    The story is great, Nigel is superb, audio muffled, needs re-recording or the audio in order to up it's quality in comparison to the other audio books.

    "Terry Pratchett, never disappoints"

    Every visit to the Disc world brings new characters to fall in love with. Such a complex intertwined mix of characters

    "It's okay."

    I love lots of Discworld novels, but this one felt weak to me. I just couldn't feel sympathetic with any of the characters. I also wish that it was more about death and Susan than Buddy and his gang. Still a good read.

    "amazing job done as always."

    Mr. Nigel's treatment of Terry Pratchett's characters is the de facto treatment in my opinion. The voice of DEATH alone is so absolutely perfect that I can think of no better voice. fantastic as always.

    "Great story as always, bad recording"

    I often find myself hating the narrator of these early Discworld novels, but that always gets swept aside by the story Pratchett weaves. Sadly, the original recorders of this audio book did a terrible job and the sound is often muffled or way to quiet.

    "Fantastically performed Pratchett"

    Mr. Planer presents each character of Discworld in a way that goes beyond what my imagined vocalizations would be. Sit back and enjoy.
