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 clichés 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 audiobook).

Interesting story,

Narrator was excellent as usual. Just one annoying character, Plummets, an old wizard. Love the talking dog!

Terry takes on Holy Wood

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

Entertaining story - excellent narration. I love the way that Discworld mirrors ours - in this case - movies.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Moving Pictures?

Introduction of the new Arch-Chancellor of Unseen University & his interactions with the Bursar.


What about Nigel Planer’s performance did you like?

Nigel is an excellent Narrator - he really helps bring the characters to life.


Any additional comments?

This story features the wizards & introduces a number of new characters who appear in later books. Can't even count the number of times that I have listened to this book! If you are a TP fan, then do yourself a favour and just press "buy"! If you're not already a fan & you like fantasy with lashings of humour (& a wee bit of satire) - you've got nothing to lose - give it a try.
