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.

Great Story but narrator not great

What did you love best about Wyrd Sisters?

A very original parody of Macbeth.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Celia Imrie?

Steven Briggs without a doubt.

Any additional comments?

Celia Imrie's male characters all sound about ten years old. Some of her character's voices are hard to understand because she tries to change the characteristics of her voice instead of using different accents. Her style of reading is better suited to children's books.

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.

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.

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.

Disappointing narration

Celia, you are a fantastic actress, but you just don't get Granny and Nanny. They may be old but the aren't decrepit. These are two of the most charasmatic and powerful witches on the Discworld. Both have huge personalities (very different from each other but still huge). This AB made them sound like they are already half dead and fully cackling. These aren't Disney witches. So disappointed. Would live Stephen Briggs to narrate EVERY Discworld book. He nails it.
