Description

The show must go on, as murder, music, and mayhem run riot in the night.

The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork, is a huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely familiar evil mastermind in a hideously deformed evening dress.

At least, he hopes so. But Granny Weatherwax, Discworld's most famous witch, is in the audience. And she doesn't hold with that sort of thing.

So there's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening's entertainment, with murderous performances you can really hum).

©1996 Terry and Lyn Pratchett (P)1999 Isis Publishing Ltd.

Critiques

"Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic, and unchained whimsy....Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own." (Sunday Times)

Awesome, just awesome

Well, the narration is perhaps not absolutely perfect, but it's not far off. A bit better quality would not have gone amiss.
But, the book, oh the book, it was awesome. I've been relistening to this part of the Disworld series (incl. Tiffany Aching), and I can't help loving every bit of it.

Operettic

Pratchett has written a theatrical work performed brilliantly by Planer. Perfect amount of mischief and cheek to make the story a lot of fun.

Wonderful!!!

I loved it from beginning to end. Nigel Planner is at his very best reading Maskerade, and the story had me laughing and dying for more with every chapter. I listened to it again right after I finished it the first time.

Opera, murder and witches

I love Pratchett's witches, and this time in Ankh-Morkpork solving murder mysteries, looking for money and going to the opera. Very good story with lots of fun! Recommendable!!

Classic Terry Pratchett

If you could sum up Maskerade in three words, what would they be?

Funny, Clever, Entertaining

I typically have enjoyed Nigel Planers reading of the Discworld novels, this performance does not disappoint!

Laughed allowed on many occasions!

Maskerade doesnt hit the high notes

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Shorten it by 100 minutes and bring in more of the regular Diskworld characters

Has Maskerade turned you off from other books in this genre?

No , but I will avoiid Terry Pratchett's other novels involving the witches

What didn’t you like about Nigel Planer’s performance?

I kept hearing Neil from "The Young Ones" moaning through the characters

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No way too long to support a totally predicable plot. I actualy got bored and switched to other audio books several times before I forced myself to finish this work

Any additional comments?

diskworld always should have appearnces , even cameos, by Lord Vetinari, Sam Vines and the Guards, CMOT Dibbler et al. and use less predicatble plagarised plots.

Herrlich

Das Phantom der Oper trifft auf Granny Weatherwax und Nanny Ogg - einfach herrlich.
Eigentlich sind die beiden offiziell in Ankh-Morpork um Nannys Verleger - ihr ganz spezielles Kochbuch findet reißenden Absatz - einen Geschäftsbesuch abzustatten. Aber wenn sie schon mal da sind, können sie auch nach Agnes Nitt sehen, die sich als Opernsängerin versucht und - gemäß dem Teesatz-Orakel - von etwas Schlimmem bedroht wird. Außerdem sollte Agnes besser wieder zurückkommen und den verwaisten Platz der 3. Hexe in ihrem Zirkel ausfüllen. So stellt sich Nanny das jedenfalls vor.

Es ist einfach immer wieder ein Fest für Ohr und Gemüt, diesen Hexen zu lauschen.
Das ist auch der Lesung Nigel Planers zu verdanken. Er fand sehr treffende Stimmen zu den Personen. Danke.

absolutely hilarious

This is one of the best Pratchett-books, and Nigel Planer is an amazing narrator. I totally enjoyed listening to this book.

a true Prattchet

As good as he getŽs. The Lancre witches this time mess up Ankh-Morpok and itŽs grande Opera. Hilarious and - like always- with a lot of irony, Prattchet this time letŽs Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg loose on the stage. And not to forget:Count Gribaud!
