Publisher's Summary

On a hot midsummer night in Discworld, everything seems perfect - crop circles are turning up everywhere, the witch Magrat Garlick is getting married the next morning, and everyone's buzzing with excitement. Unfortunately, the Lancre All-Comers Morris Team has gotten drunk on a fairy mound, and the elves have returned with the traditional traits of the magical realm of Fairie: evil, malice, murder, cruelty, and kidnapping. Suddenly, Granny Weatherwax and her tiny coven of belligerent witches are faced with their biggest challenge as they try to pull off Magrat's wedding. Browse more novels of Discworld.

so sad about the quality

TP is my alltime favorite Author. it is very sad, that audible cannot produce the title in a quality that dosent sound like is has been sampled with a 2-bit codec.

Some irkful inconsistencies.

70% of the enjoyment I get from an audiobook relies on the narrator being successful. I have found that Nigel Planer's narration of the discworld novels is not ideal. He tends to pronounce words differently each time he says them, and sometimes mixes up the voices assigned to characters!

Please, Nigel... it's "g-eye-tha Ogg, not "githa". I'm sure it is! ;)

The story, of course, is very much worth the listen, even despite the irksomeness!

Away with the fairies

This is one of my favourite Pratchett's and I've read it lots of times so pretty much know it off by heart. I really needed a "comfort listen" so thought I'd give it a go. Evil fairies, Midsummer Night's Dream, terrifying Morris dancing, beekeeping - it's all there and hilariously interpreted through the unique lens of Discworld logic.

Nigel Planer is fine but I prefer Stephen Briggs. I've known these characters for so long that I have strong personal ideas as to how they sound and Nigel Planer doesn't interpret them as I imagine. Obviously, that's not his fault but Granny Weatherwax sounds a bit too generic old lady for my taste.

In the unlikely event that you haven't read any Discworld books, my advice is that whilst it's not strictly necessary to read them in chronological order, you will get more out of them by reading the "sets" within the series in the order they appear as the characters develop with each book. So, this is part of the Witches sub-story which technically starts with Equal Rites but properly with Wyrd Sisters.

Pratchett does it again

Another total success. Mr. Pratchett does it once more, I have never had a bad novel by this man, whether in print or audio format.

Pratchett at his best.

Narrative as only Sir Terry Pratchett could produce, and as always with seemingly careless virtuosity.

Genius

Loved it. Beautifully read. Gripping yarn. Granny and Nanny and Magrat ROCK. Terry Pratchett's witch's are awesome.
