Excellent twist on christmas. Makes you really think. Recomended for extra jolly, and other things ending in -olly.
bitewise great, the rest a bit slow compared to other great titles of the discworld novels
Reading The Hogfather is one of my Christmas traditions so I thought I'd download the audio version for a change. It's probably my favourite Pratchett - funny, thoughtful, wise and even moving.
Nigel Planer does a fine job. All the characters are pretty much correct (ie they sound like they do in my head) clearly differentiated.
HO! HO! HO!

Nigel Planer does his usual excellent job with another Discworld title. There were moments when I laughed out loud, embarrassing as I was listening on headphones, at the banter between the Death of Rats and Quoth. This was in spite of Planer's Raven sounding very like his Granny Weatherwax from other books.
He reads at the same pace as the book which, like most Pratchetts, doesn't pause for chapter breaks.
Brilliant rendition, highly recommended, and not just for Christmas.

I had scene the telemovie a few years ago & was curious to read more Terry Prachett after discovering Good Omens earlier in the year.
having now listened to this story I am very excited to read more books from the discworld universe
it was ok but not as entertaining as I hope it would be could do better.
