Description

A weathercock has risen from the sea of Discworld, and suddenly you can tell which way the wind is blowing.

A new land has surfaced, and so have old feuds. And as two armies march, Commander Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch has got just a few hours to deal with a crime so big that there's no law against it. It's called "war".

He's facing unpleasant foes that are out to get him...and that's just the people on his side.

The world's cleverest inventor and its most devious politician are on their way to the battlefield with a little package that's guaranteed to stop a battle...

Discworld goes to war...

This is the 21st volume in the Discworld series.

A true Pratchett classic

Would you listen to Jingo again? Why?

One of the funniest Pratchett stories. Had me rolling with laughter at times.

Have you listened to any of Nigel Planer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I prefer Stephen Bigget's narrative but Nigel definitely performed with flying colour in Jingo.

What you see is what you get

When you listen to a watch novel from the discworl you know excactly what you're gonna get and thats pretty damn satisfying.

Laughed out loud too many times to count

Exceptionally incisive, hilarious and a study of human nature at its best.
Loved it !
A must read for anyone that likes satire. A lot of the usual characters make an appearance.
The way he explains the concepts of war, of how 'different means dangerous' is just amazing. Of course you will be laughing all the way at the brilliant wit, fast paced plot so that you won't see the twists coming.
A suffering Vimes, a smug Vetinari, the always innocent Nobby and so much more !!

Great story, great performance. Bad recording

This file is badly converted from audio tapes. There are frequent squelch noises throughout, and at least one instance of "end of side 14" was left in during the conversion.

First audio book

This was my first audio book, normally I prefer full cast productions, and despite Nigel Planers excellent reading i was still left unimpressed. Oh well to each their own.

Sam Vines is a great character!

Love it! My sister always said Commander Vimes was her favorite Discworld character, and after this book, I finally understand why!

Brilliant. Fun story, great characters.

A fun continuation of the Watch storyline. I love Nigel Planer's voice acting which gives real colour to the characters.

A book for the times

I am very glad I read this book now although I would have probably felt the same at any other point in our history, which is sad reflection on the constancy of xenophobia and jingoism. Listen to this book to see a reflection of our own ugly selves.

Yet another great story by Pratchet

Would you listen to Jingo again? Why?

I've already listened to it twice and will repeat in few months time for sure.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Captain Carrot. He is always so diligent.

What about Nigel Planer’s performance did you like?

The way he impersonates every single character

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"If the enemy has an impenetrable stronghold, see he stays there"

Unfortunately the last AMCW a.book by N. Planer

As one got use to all the lovely spoken characters, it's a shame that it's not continued by him. I bet a lot of people would love to hear the other AM City Watch being read by Mr. Planer...
