Description

Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought he'd come to the mountain kingdom of Lancre for a simple little religious ceremony. Now he's caught between vampires and witches, and he's not sure there is a right side.  

There are the witches: young Agnes, who is really in two minds about everything, Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg, who is far too knowing and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble.

And the vampires are intelligent, with fancy waistcoats and lots of style. They're out of the casket and want a bite of the future.

Commentaires

"Another sidesplitting Discworld adventure." (Kirkus

"Every sentence is made to sing for its supper, and it is this precision that allows [Pratchett] such meticulous control of the pacing, the plotting, and of course, the humour." (The Times [London])

Only 4 because of narration

The story is 5 star, but I wasn't as impressed with the narration. If you are used to Stephen Briggs's narrating, this will be quite different for you as well! However, it wasn't all bad--it just took some getting used to. He also reads a little slower than Stephen Briggs, which helped me catch a little more detail on the first listen. I would definetly listen to the sample first to see if you like it, but other than that, there were no problems for me.

devoured this story

I was Bewitched by Nigel Planer's reading. The story kept me up at night as I had to finish this fun tale.

Terrible sound quality

Classic Pratchett, ably performed by Nigel Planer. A good producer could have helped him with certain aspects of his performance, such as his Feegle voices and accent.

A thoroughly enjoyable visit to Lancre

Nigel Planer is marvellous and it is wonderful to spend time back in Lancre after so long away at Ankh Morpork.

The Counter-Book

TL;DR: This seems to be a Counter-Book to Wyrd-Sisters or Witches Abroad - just to get the Witches back to Earth again.

Mild spoilers ahead, beware!

This is my least favorite Terry Pratchett Discworld Book. It feels like it was written to get the Witches of Lancre back to Earth since they are described as omni-sentient beings in Wyrd-Sisters and Witches Abroad. They do not know any Bound or Master - so Pratchett had to introduce something that would be equal.

I see how the Idea was that all of the Witches were tricked by the BBEG but it felt more like they turned stupid for some days.

I totally love Nigel Planer but I would so wish that Celia Imrie (spoke Wyrd-Sisters) would speak all Parts of the Witches of Lancre while Planer keeps reading everything else.
