Publisher's Summary

On the planet of Discworld, phrases like "there's a Death in the family" take on a whole new meaning. Young Susan has always suspected that her Grandfather was different, as though all the time he spent riding a white horse and wielding a scythe weren't enough of a giveaway. Now that her worst fears have been confirmed, Susan learns that she's expected to take over the family business when she grows up, even though most people mistake her for the Tooth Fairy. But as attractive as Death can be to many people, Susan is drawn into something else: the exciting, addictive heavy beats of "Music with Rocks In," Discworld's latest dance craze.Browse more novels of Discworld.

Low sound quality

I was disappointed by the audio quality of this book. It was clearly copied from a tape (at one point they failed to edit out a the narrator announcing: "side 3") This is fairly disappointing since you get low level white noise throughout the length of the book. Audible.com usually delivers books at almost CD quality, and this one was just not there.

The book itself is not one of Pratchett's best(still good though). The events in it follow those in "Mort" and "Reaper Man" and precede those in "Hogfather." You do not need to read those to enjoy this one though, the story stands up quite well on it's own.

Great book, poor quality audio

The book was good: Susan and Death are pretty awesome, as are The Band With Rocks In boys. Maybe not one of Pratchett's best novels, but still entertaining.
However, as another reviewer pointed out, getting this on tape would have better quality than this version. It was obviously brought over from a set of cassettes, as it includes long pauses between the "tapes" (not the files). There is even an "end of cassette 1" type message at one point.
I was disappointed that I used a credit on this one. If I'd known about the quality in advance, I would have just picked up a copy of the book and skipped this recording until it was redone.
