'It is an axiom of behavioural science that vampires are territorial while cannibals range widely.' Hannibal killed nine people before he was caught. And five on his escape. Two of his victims survived - one of them is in an asylum; but the other craves revenge. Mason Verger, a paraplegic confined to a respirator since his encounter with Dr Lecter, can move only the fingers of his crippled right hand across the soft blanket that covers his lifeless body.

Really good book, enjoyed the story. Most of the narration is excellent. However I couldn't understand what Mason Verger was saying and found this very offputting. The rest of the book was good enough to make me stick with it, but it was a bit of a shame.

Tiffany Aching, the young witch from The Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky, and Wintersmith is back in a new adventure featuring Discworld characters both familiar to fans (such as Tiffany, the Wee Free Men, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg) and new (meet Wee Mad Arthur, the Nac Mac Feegle on the City Watch whose only previous appearance was a brief cameo in Feet of Clay, and city witch Mrs Proust - a fabulous Pratchett creation).

Fantastic book, performed very well by Stephen Briggs. My one criticism is the Feegle accent which was so awful it was distracting.
