Publisher's Summary

In Wyrd Sisters, the enchanting world of Discworld is turned upside down by 3 meddling witches: Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick. Their interference in royal politics causes kingdoms to wobble, crowns to topple, knives to flash, and citizens to shudder in fear. Terry Pratchett's vividly imaginative story takes you on a journey with hunchbacked monarchs, lost crowns, disguised heirs, refueling broomsticks, and frightening thunderstorms, as the three sisters battle the odds to restore the rightful king to the throne. This is the sixth book in the Discworld series.Browse more novels of Discworld.

Happy I gave it a chance, despite other reviews

I was a little worried after reading the other reviews here on Audible that found fault with the dramatization provided by the narrator and also one review that found fault with the audio quality itself. I am glad that I am a completist and gave it a try anyway. If you are familiar with the other witch-centric books narrated by Celia Imrie, you will not be surprised by the style of dramatization here. I found that it gave life to the book and greatly prefer this to a flat reading. The audio quality was just fine, too, with no static or background noises that I noticed. I am sad that some people might pass over listening to this book, based on the negative reviews here, since I think this is one of the best Discworld novels so far in the series in terms of plot and characters.

Fine story. Terrible narrator.

I'm a big fan of Terry Pratchett audiobooks - I think I have almost all of them from Audible now. But to be honest, I couldn't even finish this one. Celie Imrie is a fine actor, but I don't think she understands that the Discworld books are supposed to be funny, lighthearted and a little absurdist, even when they're dealing with 'darker' themes. She reads this as though it's a highly serious, somber, and utterly without humour. I never thought I'd say this about a Discworld novel, but listening to this was kind of depressing.

Hard work

This is a good book spoiled and Ive read the book a number of times. I dont think its just the narrator. It sounds like it has been recorded by one narrator and other narrators have added different character voices but with bad editing. There are too many silences in the narrative, it doesnt flow so you loose the story line. It makes listening hard work. Not at all the quality I would expect after listening to other Discworld audio books. I would not recommend this audio book until it has been re-recorded. Bring back Nigel Planner or Tony Robinson please.

It just does snot work for me

This must be one of the few Discworlds I have not listened to. In my head the voices are perfect from Planar and Briggs, even Robinson. Nanny Ogg does not sound right the way Celia Imrie voices them. Good story as ever but the voice characterisation jars.

this is not an original recording.

this is not the original recording. it is a recording of the original recording. the audio is muffled and occasionally halting. i have heard the original and i know the quality to be excellent. how has this inferior product been added to the books that can be purchased? how can i confidently buy any further books, Pratchett or otherwise?

Sir Terry as brilliant as ever!

As for the story, classicly brilliant Terry Pratchett. The witches and Death are my favourite characters! The narrator does all the voices very well too! But, the volume level is infuriating!! especially if listening via earpieces while travelling in the car. one moment is so damn quiet you can't hear anything then the next moment it blasts your eardrums! very frustrating to try to listen to.
