We have a copy of this book so playing the audio while looking at the pictures adds a fantastic dimension. The sound effects fit the pictures beautifully and those sound effects also do a good job of replacing the images when not following the print book.
My little dinosaur really seems to like it and along with other stories it helps get him to settle when he is in the mood for "the dinosaur book".

A series of difficult subjects presented in a, if not understandable way, then in way that makes you think that you could understand them if you had a few spare years to study them in university.

Entertaining and educational.

This is, as Shada was before it, one of the stories that DNA re hashed in another franchise.
Where as Shada was a good Doctor who series that translated into a good Dirk Gently novel
Dr Who and the Krikkitmen doesn't really work as a doctor who story but is superb as a hitchhiker's installment.
To me its feels as if a copy of life the universe and everything fell through a timewarp and was badly plagiarised as a Dr who story.
Much of the dialogue and many situations just don't gel with the characters from the Dr who universe.
It felt like the doctor had been shoe horned into someone else's story.
The entire plot of private life of Genghis khan was much better as the short story and Kakapo are better described in last chance to see.

All on all this is a fun story with some cracking jokes they just sound like the are coming from the wrong people.

I have this on CD and have listened to it dozens of times. It is a shame series two is not easily available.
I tracked down all the other episodes on various sites (including the actors own sites as examples of their work) but I would prefer an official copy. A
It's a shame there are so few episodes as it is brilliantly written and performed.

The narration was generally very good with a few jarring miss pronunciations.
I would recommend this book, it has some clever ideas and fun characters. If I could, i would give it more than four stars but slightly less than 5 stars.

A continuation of the story of Tiffany and a goodbye to many of our favorite characters.
Terry managed to include many of his beloved creations in what he must have known would be his last discworld book.
A touching ending.
Not a stand alone novel. Please read the previous books first.
