Publisher's Summary

In Wyrd Sisters, the enchanting world of Discworld is turned upside down by 3 meddling witches: Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick. Their interference in royal politics causes kingdoms to wobble, crowns to topple, knives to flash, and citizens to shudder in fear. Terry Pratchett's vividly imaginative story takes you on a journey with hunchbacked monarchs, lost crowns, disguised heirs, refueling broomsticks, and frightening thunderstorms, as the three sisters battle the odds to restore the rightful king to the throne. This is the sixth book in the Discworld series.

    "Lovely voice acting."

    This is a great story by a great author, Terry Pratchett.

    The reader does a great job with the story. She provides a distinct voice for each character and carries it through the entire session.

    Story
    "Pratchett Recounts Shakespeare's Life and Works"

    This is a serviceable primer to the life and works of William Shakespeare, in addition to being am introductory treatise on the theories regarding his identity--whether he wrote his own plays, etc. Provided that you've got a good grasp of your Shakespeare already, of course. Anyway, good old yarn.

    "the voice that could cut glass"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the reader


    Was Wyrd Sisters worth the listening time?

    I like the book. just not the reader


    Any additional comments?

    the reader has a nice reading voice. untill she starts doing voices. I was listening on head phones and had to stop because the level would go from her low reading to high pitched ear piercing voice. and hard to understand. just irrating.

    "A cute take on the Scottish play"

    It's a cute story, second in Terry Pratchet's witches line. The narrator it's not my favorite, but she's not bad.

    "Wonderful book, horrible audio quality"
    Any additional comments?

    This is one of Pratchett's best books, but there's so much background noise that it's nearly unlistenable. This is an Audibile problem , not a flaw in the original production -- I later got the same version on CD and it was perfect.

    "The pacing is a little poor"

    The reader did a fine job but truthfully the pacing on this is a little slow and it should've been picked up a bit.
    It's too bad because these are such great stories and the director did not really allow the performers to pick the pace up to get the reader more engaged

    Story
    "Painful Narration"
    What did you love best about Wyrd Sisters?

    I love the Discword books, love Terry Pratchett's humor and writing style.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I still haven't been able to make it past the first hour of narration. The narration could be used for anesthesia for dental work. It makes one drowsy, but at the same time is very painful.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Celia Imrie’s performances?

    Nope. Never. Never ever. No way. Not in my lifetime. Absolutely not. No.


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

    Wacky witches.


    Any additional comments?

    TERRIBLE NARRATION.

    Story
    "Delighted in Wyrd Sisters"

    All the Disk is a stage and the narrator brought all the characters to life except when they were dieing and even then Death was to be enjoyed. Terry Pratchett delightfully steered the Disk into the dark territory of Macbeth and other Shakespeareian tragedy.

    Story
    "Poor Quality Recording"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I can't really comment on the story because the recording is so bad. I could barely make out the narration. I agree with other reviews that the story is hard to follow I would return this if I could.


    Would you recommend Wyrd Sisters to your friends? Why or why not?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Celia Imrie?

    Maybe


    Do you think Wyrd Sisters needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    These characters appear in another pratchett series.
