Publisher's Summary

Right before the wise old wizard Drum Billet died, he passed on his magical staff of power to the newborn eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately, Drum Billet never bothered to check the gender of the newborn baby, and it turns out to be a girl. Now his chauvinistic colleagues are forced to deal with a young girl who has all the qualifications to join their all-male profession. Terry Pratchett's third Discworld novel, Equal Rites, asks many provocative questions about magic, where it goes, where it comes from, and why.Browse more novels of Discworld.

Narration is Unintelligible

I am a Pratchett fanatic, and own every recording that he has available, and I would pay ANYTHING to have this and Wyrd Sisters re-recorded with Stephen Briggs as the narrator. Celia's performance is so mumbled and without inflection that I sincerely can barely understand her at all.

Very Interesting!

Although the beginning dragged a bit, the story got very fascinating. And I do think that the female reader was very fitting, had to get used to a different voice, but it grows on you. Although Nigel Planer read most of the discworld series, Ms. Imrie did a fine job. Humans are creatures of habit and tend to resist change, but her voice was a nice change, inspite of most reviewers negative comments.
