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.

Trolls are Scottish???

NO! No-no-no-no-NO! This simply won't do, Trolls are Scottish half the time and just plain confused the rest of the time, Angua sounds like a 6'4" male body builder recovering from a head cold, which she apparently caught from Sam Vimes judging by his voice (at least up to half way through the book before it finally developed), and lady Sybil makes me think of a portly matron with nothing but cotton wool between her ears. Sorry but if it wasn't for the storyline I'd plain give up listening all together. Nigel Planer doesn't seem to develop any characters before performing, instead just experiments along the way, changing tempo, tone and even accents along the way. I'm sorry but there other Terry Pratchett narrators that bring the story to life with such natural passion and brilliance of characters that in comparison makes me want to find Nigel Planer, fly there, and demand a refund!
