Publisher's Summary

Koom Valley? That was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago.But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office.With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin, and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him.Oh, and at six o'clock every day, without fail, with no excuses, he must go home to read Where's My Cow?, with all the right farmyard noises, to his little boy. There are just some things you have to do.Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.

One of the best

A hilarious book. I started laughing in a otherwise quite room in the middle of work, when it got near to the end. One of the best terry Pratchett books and my personal favourite thus far.

Overall a great book, read well but a few issues with accents.

I've read all of the Discworld series multiple times and I guess I have a pretty good understanding of all the characters nuances. Although Stephen Briggs did a good job narrating I think that some of the accents and inflections didn't live up to characters. Sam Vimes is a hardened street cop often compared to a Dirty Harry type but doesn't come across this way through the narration. Sgt. Colon sounds nothing like he should and even Carrot is not quite right. I understand it can't be easy to voice all the characters seamlessly but I think it's a must for such important roles.

Overall though I think that THUD is a fantastic story and I'd recommend this version for those who haven't read the hard copy.
