Publisher's Summary

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse.
And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder.
He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, and occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment.
They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.
But not quite all....

An eye popper of a title to google - "Snuff"!

There's an art to putting a lesson in a tale without slapping people upside the head with it and no one can do that better than Terry Pratchett. Mostly because the story is so entertaining you don't care. Oh Vimes! roaming around in the horrible fresh air knocking elbows and sometimes heads with the country folks, explaining women's lib to the pride and prejudice young ladies with all the delicacy we've all come to expect and reluctantly championing an oppressed people to boot. I find the only way to rate a Terry Pratchett novel is to compare it to other Terry Pratchett novels because for me they start at 5 stars whereas most other books have to start at a humble 1 star. That being said I loved this book almost as much as Thud! which is my very favourite of the Vimeocentric discworld novels. Stephen Briggs gives his usual wonderful performance, I love the brusque voice he does for Sam, it captures him for me completely. 10 stars!

Snuff of Legend!

I have read every Terry Pratchett novel, but this is the first one I’ve gotten on audio. Fans, be prepared for a sleepless night as once I started listening, I couldn’t stop. One of the best stories yet. Characters that you can relate to in a fast paced story that has just enough twists to be interesting without winding you up in knots. No magic or wizards in this one, but Sam Vimes at his best, juggling the roles of husband, father, friend and policeman. A good starting book if you haven’t read any of the other disc-world novels. Just one more warning - you might not want to listen to this story when traveling on public transport as your uncontrolled laughter may upset some of the other passengers.

More true to life than fantasy should be!

More true to life than fantasy should be! Relationships between a man and his wife and the love that keeps them together. Am I talking about me or Captain Vines? It was so funny to listen to that I often laughed out loud, and when you're listening to it on headphones I did get some strange looks.
A well thought out story with more than the usual level of clever humour.

A welcome return of Sam Vimes

I have not yet read or listened to a Disc World story that I haven't liked (and I have read almost all of them) and those involving Ankh-Morpork City Watch are my favourites. They appeal to all our family and have done since my 2 sons were 10 and 12 - they are now late teens and early twenties and still enjoying them. Terry Pratchet has managed to address many disappointing characteristics of human nature over the years, usually softened by humour and this is no exception. Perhaps Snuff is slightly predicatable, but the characters of Commander Sam Vimes, his family and entourage are all still entertaining.

Great book by a Beloved author

This story has it all: danger, adventure, action, pathos and humour.
Terry Pratchett at his best.
The narrator is terrific and very, very listenable (I think that is word)
Definitely one to listen to over and over again

some small recording skips otherwise great quality

awesome story though some background knowledge of the Discworld required to get the most out of it.
