Publisher's Summary

What could be easier than preventing a servant girl from marrying a prince, especially for 3 clever witches? But Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick face more than they bargained for when they journey to the distant city of Genua. For one thing, their power is limited to Mrs. Gogol's weak voodoo spells, a one-eyed cat, and a second-hand magic wand that only works on pumpkins. Furthermore, the Godmother has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse. Do servant girls have to marry the prince? Is that what life's all about? Browse more novels of Discworld.

Great book, great performance, but poor quality

I am a huge fan of the Discworld series, and I love listening to Nigel Planer as he does the narration, but the static and poor audio quality was barely tolerable, so I took off a star for that.

Even though the listing shows the audio format is 'e' quality, in reality, it seems like it's the same poor quality recording from years ago that was wrapped in a higher bitrate wrapper.

To hear the difference, listen to the sample from Discworld, Book #8 - Guards, Guards! I believe that book comes from a new, higher quality source. Sounds clean and well recorded, whereas Witches Abroad is compressed and full of static by comparison.

As to the content of the book... if you like the Discworld series, then you'll love this book. It's a 'Witches' book, all about Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat, and the power of stories. It's setting is a loose blend of Disney World and New Orleans - of which Terry Pratchett wrote "...in one, you go there and Fun is manufactured and presented to you, in the other you just eat and drink a lot and fun happens." Having just come back from a Disney World vacation, I totally agree.

What fun!

Wow! Great narration. I love Pratchett's books and had doubts that it would work as an audio-book. Those doubts are overcome. This was wonderfully fun to listen to.
