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 it was 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.

Entertaining!

Another good book in the series. Well-performed and entertaining as we come to expect from Terry Pratchett

A great voice for street mime...

A poor poor poor representation of a remarkable Authors work. A brilliant, witty and entertaining edition from disc-world reluctantly, sorrowfully, painfully dragged down the blackboard of DEATH's niece with the DEATH OF RATS digging in its wee claws for maximum effect. The narrator presents with horrible attempts at character voices, sometimes bordering on unintelligible. Close to mono-tonish, with out actually qualifying AS mono-tone, alas even failing to successfully fail at that... an insomniacs biggest fantasy, was only the words of the story that kept me interested. 3 star average rating, 5 for story, 1 for narration. Sincere apologies to any and all that disagree.

Bad quality!

I love the story!

But
AUDIBLE
what have you done with the audio??

If I buy the old original cassettes or the cd version the quality is perfect regardless of the age of this record.

Your download quality is overpriced and ridiculous bad!!


Better buy cds or cassettes via Amazon than using this Audible download!

5 stars for book and plot, 0 stars for the audio quality.

Good book, poor quality

I enjoyed the book but like others here wasn't convinced by C.I. as a reader. My main complaint though is the RUBBISH quality of the download itself. Maybe it's just me but this had the squelching distortion of a very low bit rate download. I hope all Audible books aren't plagued by the same or I'll be going elsewhere!

Thrill and Splendor

Oh what a story! The characters, the world (disc)... well the whole lot really! magical yet wholesome in a way Tolkien could never really capture and not to mention Gran!

Try it. You'll love it.
