Publisher's Summary

Other children receive xylophones. Susan just had to ask her grandfather to take his vest off. Yes. There's a Death in the family. It's hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe: especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld. It's lawless. It changes people. It's called Music With Rocks In. It's got a beat and you can dance to it, but...it's alive. And it won't fade away.

Love it

Well read and a great story. Tony Robinson is a fantastic reader and he draws you into the narrative so well. Terry Pratchett of course is unbeatable

disappointing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I did not realize this was the abridged version. I love Terry Pratchett, but his plots are so intricate and weave in so many characters that the 3 hour condensed version just jumped around all over. It was really difficult to follow.

Has Soul Music turned you off from other books in this genre?

I love listening to Terry Pratchett books, but I won't buy another abridged version!

Have you listened to any of Tony Robinson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Tony Robinson himself is not the issue. He is a marvellous reader.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Soul Music?

The opposite. I would not have cut any. That was the whole problem.

Any additional comments?

I wish I could get a refund!

Excellent book not sure about the narration

Tony Robinson is and will always be in my mind, Baldrick. His vocalisations cannot possibly meet the descriptions penned by Pratchett. I don't think anyone could do the voice of death without a sound studio and a good sound engineer. Tony's vocalisation of the troll characters leaves a hell of a lot to be desired. They are stone beings not Darleks!
