Suddenly, condemned arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig found himself with a noose around his neck and dropping through a trapdoor into...a government job? By all rights, Moist should be meeting his maker rather than being offered a position as postmaster by Lord Vetinari, supreme ruler of Ankh-Morpork.

Stephen Brings is easily the best Terry Pratchett narrator, and the book is fantastic

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have all the Newsflesh series in paperback format and love them to bits, hence why I picked up the audiobook. Generally the narration here is good, although the attempts by the narrators at an English accent caused me to burst out laughing in the middle of the street. It sounds like some combination of Australian, South African and London urban. Only recommended if this doesn't bother you.
