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 Audible.com, and would be extremely grateful if Audible would add the missing titles as soon as possible

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, 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.
this is a great book.
the whole of the political friendship between 2 countries.... dependant on sam vimes, carrot gone rogue (but politely) and 'captain fred colon'
