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.
Every visit to the Disc world brings new characters to fall in love with. Such a complex intertwined mix of characters
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.
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.
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.
Mr. Planer presents each character of Discworld in a way that goes beyond what my imagined vocalizations would be. Sit back and enjoy.
Very well read. Somewhat muffled audio quality. Funny concept with good characters, but at times a bit disconnected and too forcibly satirical. Not as good as Small Gods, but still very entertaining.
Great storyline, expertly executed by a very talented narrator! I'm reading this one again as soon as possible!
Terry Pratchett is one of my favorite authors , his descriptions are the best. and as an audiobook, the man who spoke had wonderful accents that keep you interested
Discworld books are all good. Some are better than others however and I would place this one near the bottom of the many I have read. It is a parody of Rock music as you could probably guess from the title.
It is the 3rd in the Death series of books. Death is one of the funniest and most interesting of the Discworld characters. The trouble is, with this book, is that Death is only a minor character. Death, prone to melancholy as he is, has decided to take a break and join the Clatchian Foreign Legion. This could have been a very funny book in itself, unfortunately, it takes Death mostly out of the picture and his Granddaughter unwillingly has to fill in for him.
The plot revolves around a newly formed musical group composed of a human, dwarf, and troll. One of the members should have been killed but his soul has been replaced my music from an ancient artifact from the beginnings of the universe in the form of a (electric) guitar. They invent "Music with Rocks In" which takes Ankh-Morpork by storm. The plot becomes quite convoluted and at times confusing with a few less amusing side plots, which is why it lost a couple stars for me. Still, plenty of typical Pratchet humor with all the references to Rock Star cliches.
Good but not great.
Nigel Planer is a superb narrator. The recording quality of this is very poor. It sounds very muffled almost like being underwater. Made it difficult to understand certain parts.
