Publisher's Summary

A "sourcerer" is born in Discworld - a wizard so powerful that he makes all other magicians look like a bunch of fools in pointy hats. Now, suddenly, Discworld is brought to the brink of an all-out thaumaturgical war. The only hope for peace is Rincewind, the failed magician who has a risky plan to save the world. He enlists the help of several odd new characters, including Conina the barbarian hairdresser, Nijel the Destroyer, and a yuppie genie who sees lamps as a growth industry. This is the fifth book in the Discworld series.

Sourcery (Unabridged)

Certainly one of Terry Pratchett's best novels. I laughted all thru the listening (the narrator helped a lot here). It does not depend on a detailed knowledge of Pratchett's characters to enjoy. Some of his other books are best enjoyed once you are familiar with them.

The sound quality is awful with the volume increasing suddenly at times. Really a shame because the books are awesome. Love the Tony Robinson versions but they are too short

Pratchett on top form

Sir Terry really hits his stride with Sourcery. Packed with his customary wit, erudition and a driving plot to boot, you couldn't ask much more of a Discworld novel. The narration is flawless and the range of character voices exquisite. To my fellow passengers on the 0722 to Waterloo I can only apologise for the many laugh-out-loud passages contained within this book.

Excellent listen but had to strain

The book as expected was brilliant and listening to it come to life under Nigel Planner's orchestrated vocals was brilliant. However, the actual sound quality appeared to let it down slightly. I am unsure if this is my earphones or the iPod version but there was a tinniness to it that made it hard to hear at times.
