The book was very funny and well placed. it had the best terry pratchett villains.
Would you listen to The Truth again? Why?
Indeed I would. Fanstastic narrator who takes an absolutely wonderful and humourous story and brings it to life in front of your eyes
Who was your favorite character and why?
Lord Vetinari as always ! The cool, collected tyrant (sorry ! ruler) of Ankh-Morpork. A close second is Samuel Vimes who is too awesome to fit into one comment
What about Stephen Briggs’s performance did you like?
His impressive ability to impersonate so many different voices ! A tonal range that goes from the high pitched sequak of an imp to the baritone of DEATH and his brilliant rendering of so many different accents that make English seem normal to an non English speaker like me.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The Truth shall make you fret !
This is a wonderful story about the nature of truth and the nature of the people who tell it. As always Terry Pratchett has made a hilarious story about how noble humans can triumph over adversity and root vegetables.
Audio quality not as good as most. Story is Terry Pratchette at his best! Narrator Stephen Briggs enacts all the characters marvelously! Stop what you're doing and listen.
Terry Pratchett at his best! This is a must-have for any Pratchett fan. Also, a stellar performance by Stephen Briggs.
Humorous. Crafty. Social commentary. One of Pratchett's best. I'd recommend it highly. If lord vetanari allows.
a great sorry set in the disk world. too bad terry prarchett it's gone. I'll miss his stories.
Nasty villains with a diabolical plot, weird and colorful characters, an earnest hero, and a touch of possible romance make this a winner. Although The Truth is well into the saga, a first time reader or listener would find this a fine introduction to Terry Pratchett's odd flat world, and Stephen Briggs as narrator it at the top of his form.
Every discworld book is great. And there are 40 something of them. Aren't we lucky.
One of my fave books of the series! I'm not sure why but while it's not Pratchett's usual style to have nefarious characters that are completely and utterly detestable and unredeemable in any way I absolutely loved the narrative imperative that they defined in this story.
