Slow start

This is the latest in the books I've " read" by Pratchett. After a slow start it gained my attention and yet again I enjoyed the narration of one of his books. On to the next!

Still fabulous after years of re-reading.

Loved the narration. Perfect accompaniment to a relaxing holiday. An old favourite made new.

Excellent piece of art

Very sad it was over. Going to buy more Terry Pratchett ready by Tony Robinson, what a wonderful story fully of comedy, warmth and depth. Blown away.

Hideous abridgement

Don’t buy it - so abridged the story is mutilated - waste of a credit and a dishonour to the author

A great tale about the lack of death

What do you do when Death disappears? Where does Death go when he's not needed anymore? This is a brilliant story but it's let down by Tony Robinson's narration. He always makes death whisper, when every pratchett fan knows that DEATH SPEAKS IN CAPITAL LETTERS! It spoiled it for me somewhat.
