I mistakingly got this version of the book that was not narrated by Stephen Briggs. While the story is still wonderful, the narration by Tony Robinson is both hard to sit through and lacks any of the 'Vimes-ness' that other narrations of the book have.
It is Pratchett writing about the City Watch, read by Tony Robinson. It can do no wrong except...
I downloaded my previous Pratchett City Watch Novel - in fact, got into the whole audiobook thing - because I wanted to know how a song sung by the characters went. Here I was curious how they'd read 'Where's My Cow?', and not just in that first scene. I wanted to know how they'd read 'Where's My Daddy?' and I wanted to know how Detritus would do the hippo, and Cheery and all the others would do the other animals. To my horror, it was All Cut Out. So while it was still immensely enjoyable, and an absolute laugh, I would suggest that prospective buyers consider the unabridged version, even though it is impossible that it might be in any way superior to this one as it is not read by Baldrick.
brilliantly narrated. great story. best characters and really funny. love Sam Vimes as a character and the plot keeps you guessing. Tony Robinson does a great job of voicing all the characters authentically. a story I listen to more than once and always recommend to others!
I do like a bit of Mr Pratchett especially when Mr Robinson gives voice. However before death takes me, it would be magic if Mr R. would narrate the unabridged version. The sound of the disc world is. Mr Robinson.
