Publisher's Summary

An aura of mean-minded resentfulness is thick in the streets of Ankh-Morpork. Insurrection is in the air. The Haves and Have-Nots are about to fall out all over again. The Have-Nots want some of their own magic. But magic in the hands of amateurs is a dangerous thing. The City Watch is the last line of defence against such unnatural goings-on. But when even the Watch have trouble telling right from wrong, you know that law and order ain't what they used to be. But that's all about to change.

"Pratchett has a masterful ear for dialogue, a keen eye for the ridiculous, and a real feel for language." (Time Out)

Guards! Guards!

Wish I'd bought the unabridged version. Narration was very good but I didn't feel the story flowed well and I feel a bit cheated by the price.

Disappointing

Lets be clear from the start, I am a fan of the Discworld series and have read all of them at least once; most I've read countless times. I get the audio books so I can listen to them in the car to work (each way is conveniently one CD long).

This abridged version leaves a lot to be desired. Tony Robinson's delivery is poor, and the editing of the story seriously detract from the original. Having read (and love) the book I spent the entire time listening to this thinking 'hang on a mo what about.....'

If this were given to me as an introduction to the series I doubt it would have gone any further.

Personally I would stick with the unabridged versions which are far closer to the originals - Nigel Planer's recounting is good, Steven Brigg's is superb (seems to be the only person who has read the books - he knows that Carrot has a Welsh accent!)
