A true Pratchett classic

Would you listen to Jingo again? Why?

One of the funniest Pratchett stories. Had me rolling with laughter at times.

Have you listened to any of Nigel Planer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I prefer Stephen Bigget's narrative but Nigel definitely performed with flying colour in Jingo.

Laughed out loud too many times to count

Exceptionally incisive, hilarious and a study of human nature at its best.
Loved it !
A must read for anyone that likes satire. A lot of the usual characters make an appearance.
The way he explains the concepts of war, of how 'different means dangerous' is just amazing. Of course you will be laughing all the way at the brilliant wit, fast paced plot so that you won't see the twists coming.
A suffering Vimes, a smug Vetinari, the always innocent Nobby and so much more !!

Terry never fails to deliver a fantastic story

What did you like most about Jingo?

The humour and twists and turns. Always taking you to a new place in his imagination.

What did you like best about this story?

That constant urge to get back to the story when you had time to enjoy it. The colourful characters, fantastic humour and brilliant twists and a nod to I am guessing, De Vinci

Which character – as performed by Nigel Planer – was your favourite?

Vimes - of course!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh out loud moments

Any additional comments?

Cant get enough of Terry's books

Why hasn't Stephen Briggs done more audio books?

Absolutely loved the story but I'm very sorry to say that Nigel isn't a patch on Stephen Briggs!

Vimes and Vetinari at war

Ankh-Morpork goes to war against Klatch. Great performances by Vimes and The Watch. Nigel Planer's narration has great range and makes listening a pleasure.
