"I thought: opera, how hard can it be? Songs. Pretty girls dancing. Nice scenery. Lots of people handing over cash. Got to be better than the cut-throat world of yoghurt, I thought.

Opera can do that to a man. In such circumstances, life has obviously reached that desperate point where the wrong thing to do has to be the right thing to do.More

WARNING - Abridged, NOT Planer or Briggs-boo
This is not in my top 10 Pratchetts but it's still better than every other book, ever.
Terry Pratchett is inimitable
This is an ABRIDGED version of the book, and not narrated by Nigel Planer / Stephen Briggs. Who is Tony Robinson, and why is he ruining this book?
Please offer the other version - I know Nigel Planer has done one.
