Publisher's Summary

Sam Vines is a man on the run. Yesterday he was a duke, a chief of police, and ambassador to the mysterious, fat-rich country of Uberwald. Now he has nothing but his native wit and the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya. And if he can't make it through the forest to civilization, there's going to be a terrible war. But there are monsters on his trail. They're werewolves - and they're catching up. Sam Vines is out of time and already out of breath...

Discworld: Worth Visiting Again and Again

Terry Pratchett's Discworld is custom-made for audio. Even though I own and have read (and re-read) every one of his Discworld novels, listening to them lets me experience them with the fullness of leisurely thought and imagination.

With my purchase of The Fifth Elephant, we now own all 22 of Terry Pratchett's titles that have been released by, and would be extremely grateful if Audible would add the missing titles as soon as possible

All Hail Sir Pratchett

For once they knighted the right man in Sir Pratchett. This 'Watchmen' audiobook and its fellows are the perfect antidote to the boredom of commuting or queues. The escapades of Sir Samuel Vimes and his cadre, this time in out of Ankh-Morpork and into the werewolf-ridden steppes of Uberwald, are as always not just fantasy, or fiction, or humour, but ethics and science and sociology and pathos.
Unlike a few other reviewers, I prefer Mr. Briggs's narration/direction to Nigel Planer's: the female characters no longer sound like the Kray Brothers, and there is a Welsh cadence in the voices of dwarves of all heights, look you.
Warning: listening to this in public will draw strange looks as you laugh out loud.
I look forward to the next 'Watchmen' audiobook.

A great story.

A great story, and while i like the Tony Robinson versions, i prefer these unabridged ones. An intelligent book with, as is common for Terry Pratchett, many layers and cultural references. These Vimes/Carrot stories are always good, go back in time to Night Watch for another excellent one if you like this.
