The actors are very convincing and anyway it’s one of my favorite classics. But why transpose it in WW II time? The beginning sounds like The Narnian’s one.

... how Nigel Planer is pronouncing Angua. Why Call her anGUWA ? Each time I hear this pronunciation in the Watch Series, it spoils my hearings. I love the City Watch stories. So that’s quite sad . Angua is the female form of Angus. So the stress should be on AN I suppose.

Quite good !

One of my favorite Sir Terry’s books. Of course I had preferred Stephen Briggs 'cause he is even good with a girl’s voice. But apart Susan, Nigel Planner is brilliant and do a very descent DEATH OF RATS and his master.

The recording seems a bit old but I haven’t have serious problems to listen to. So, all in all, I cherish this.

I just prefer...

Stephen Briggs. Martin Jarvis is not bad but he does not have the Myriad Voice which could permits to express young boys and girl, ladies of different ages, all kind of men ou supernatural beings, and a convincing DEATH. So I will stick to the Briggs ‘s version or when I don’t have time enough for the unabridged one, I will listen to the all star BBC dramatised one.

Well, that’s Pratchett

The dramatised version wasn’t bad and actors were great though it was another story. The original UNSEEN ACADEMICALS is there, magically read by Stephen Briggs.
