Hard not to love Commander Vimes
- Shaun McGregor
The story was great, and as usual Stephen Briggs did his exemplar best. Terry Pratchett at his best. I have read and reread this story so many times, but I find there is always something new I have missed in past readings.
The chase of the Werewolves, you know Vimes is going to get out of it, but you never quite know how, until he does.
Being Welsh myself, I love Stephen Briggs's Dwarf's, he is so good with the accent, I could almost believe he was born next door to me.
I always try to make Terry Pratchett's books last as long as I can, so I limit myself(if I can) to three hours a day, mostly though I just keep on listening spellbound.
One of his best.
