Good things in small packages.
Despite having this in print, I avoided purchasing the audiobook for a long time because of its shortness and because I had it in my mind that this is one of his lesser works - it is not. Pratchett's limitless command of the English language, his razor sharp world view and martini-dry sense of humor should make him a national treasure. It may only be 3-1/2 hours long, but you will never find a more superbly crafted 3-1/2 hours. Who else could cover the big bang, governemnt, religion, the fall of Troy, and what to do with with a half naked parrot in 3-1/2 hours? Like the previous reviewer, I laughed out loud during my commute.

I almost didn't download this one because it is much shorter than the other Discworld novels. After listening to all the others, I decided to go ahead and try it. I'm so glad I did. This book is a little gem in the Discworld crown. Better even than some of the longer ones. Get it. It's worth it.

Rincewind saves the day!
The only problem with this story is that it's too short and I want to know what happens next! Rincewind is my favorite anti hero. He always wins if only because he has perfected the art of running away.
