Publisher's Summary

The show must go on, as murder, music and mayhem run riot on the night... The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork...a huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely familiar evil mastermind in a hideously-deformed evening dress... At least, he hopes so. But Granny Weatherwax, Discworld's most famous witch, is in the audience. And she doesn't hold with that sort of thing. So there's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening's entertainment with murders you really hum...)

A Couple of Nights at the Opera

The Marx brothers would have been green with envy at the savaging given opera here (Wagner - 3 days of the gods screaming at each other interspersed with about 20 minutes of good tunes). This one had me laughing out loud during my commute - on I-95! - in Southeast Florida, no less! Pratchett is at the top of his form in this one. Even though I have a slight preference for the novels about the night watch, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg get in to mischief that is some of the author's best (try the chocolate pudding with SPECIAL sauce). Listen, it's great. And so is Nigel Planer's reading, as always.

Great Fun

Terry Pratchett had a great time poking fun at opera and I had a great time listening. Almost as good as Night Watch. One of my favorite authors and readers.

- Marie "I love mysteries in the style of P.D. James, Rex Stout, Elizabeth Peters, Dave Duncan, etc. I love sci fi written by Issac Asimov (the robot books), Douglas Adams, Jack McDevitt (Alex Benedict series) and Susan Collins. I love fantasy written by Terry Pratchett, and Kim Harrison. I love Kate Morton. I don't like graphic descriptions of violence."
