Discworld fans will love it!
You can't help but develop a soft spot for that cowardly wizard, Rincewind. Terry Pratchet has an unsurpassed wit and there couldn't be a more perfect narrator for these novels than Nigel Planer. These two pair up wonderfully for Sorcery. The world is in danger. Can Rincewind save it? You will have a ball finding out!

Great story, bad audio
Another great addition to the series for sure. Rincewind makes a great leading character for a story with this much humor. Pretty much every time he runs into trouble I am chuckling or laughing at his response. Without giving too much away I also enjoyed his partner for this story as well as several of the other characters introduced in this book. The epilogue is especially compelling I think, although I am a total sucker for that anthropomorphic personification Death, so that probably has something to do with why I think that.
I have to take a full star off for the abysmal audio quality here though (I am being generous here - the audio ALMOST ruins the experience). It sounds like it was recorded in someone's basement off of old radio broadcasts. The sound fades and the quality totally changes from one paragraph to the next, perhaps due to different recording sessions. They also use an extremely and unnecessary jarring sound effect for footnotes (I didn't realize they were foot notes until I read some other reviews). It's the same effect they use for Death's voice, but at least it makes some sense in that context, for footnotes it comes totally out of the blue and completely takes you out of the story. If it wasn't such a good story and part of the great series it is I would recommend staying away due to the worst audio I have come across on Audible.
