The chief cashier is almost certainly a vampire. There's something nameless in the cellar (and the cellar itself is pretty nameless). A 300-year-old wizard is after his girlfriend, and he's about to be exposed as a fraud - but the Assassins Guild might get him first. In fact, a lot of people want him dead. Oh...and every day he has to take the chairman for "walkies". Everywhere he looks he's making enemies. What he should be doing is...making money!

"Pratchett throws in a mad scientist with a working economic model, disappearing gold reserves and an army of golems, once more using the Disc as an educational and entertaining mirror of human squabbles and flaws." (Publishers Weekly)
I really dont want unabridged versions of books it cuts down on the enjoyment. Do You! Please can we have this in its full glory.
Glued to a story, but could also be knitting , unknitting, cooking, drawing cats or doing Chinese Calligraphy and learning a language or try
An abridged version? Perhaps it would have been better if it had not been abridged, but it was a very enjoyable listen even so. I read the book, but thought this was a seemless story that stood up by itself.
The adventures of Moist von L. and the goings-on in Ankh Morpork are always amusing (see 'Going Postal'). Now with the unstability in the world baking sector it makes the story sharper, more astutue and highlights some of the ins and outs of the banking world.
Highly relevant today and well read too.
I love Terry Pratchett and did not spot that this was an abridged version!!!!!
Why abridge such a great book.
What is worse with such a great narrator the whole book would have been even better.
Excellent story from Pratchett and if you have limited time then definitely pick this up. Tony Robinson made for a perfect narrator.
A lot of the detail is lost in the cut tho so die hard fans should look for the unabridged version.
Did not care for Tony Robinson's narration. Would definitely prefer Stephen Briggs or Nigel Planer.
