    Description

    The town of Ankh-Morpork is in big trouble and the City Watch is desperate for a few good men to protect it. But all they've got are the dwarves Corporal Carrot and Lance-constable Cuddy, the troll Lance-constable Detritus, Lance-constable Angua, who is believed to be a woman and, worst of all, Corporal Nobbs, who has been disqualified from the human race for shoving! 

    These underdogs need all the help they can get, for they've been given only 24 hours to clean up the war-torn town.

    Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.

    Great Story - Terrible Production!

    For the Pratchett fan - especially the City Watch books - this is another great story. It's the second Nigel Planer narration I've heard and I'm just not a huge fan. He's fine, but he's not Stephen Briggs and he has a tendency to voice many of his characters in a way that makes them sound a bit slow and dim witted.

    I must endorse the comments of a previous reviewer that the production quality is truly awful - terrible sound quality and frequent jump cuts / continuity errors. It's bad enough I think Audible should clean it up or put it on permanent deep discount.

    One word - "fantastic".

    Fantastic
    Start with "Guards, guards" and continue enjoying this and the other watch series books.
    A warning though - if there are two audiobooks with the same name, check the duration. There are abominations out there a.k.a. abridged recordings. Don't walk away from them, run. Always go for the. unabridged.

    Fantastic story and audio problems

    If you could sum up Men at Arms in three words, what would they be?

    Fun Intelligent Hilarious

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cmd. Vimes

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

    While Nigel Planer's normal narrator voice is quite alright, I honestly don't like the voices he gives the different characters. They more or less sound nasal and slightly stupid all of them, save for a few ones.
    However, his narration pales in comparison to the audio editing, which is plagued by hissing background noise and sudden variations in sound levels.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, without a doubt. But only because it's a Terry Pratchett story.

    Good

    My boy Nigel Planer almost killed himself doing the Gargoyle voice and has forever earned my love and adoration

    This is one of my favourite books

    The book is lovely, Sam is a big man in my life after hearing about him. The watch is a place I would love to work if I had bin on Discworld.

    brilliant story

    The story is brilliant. Nigel Planer does a good job, however the production of the audiobook is rubbish. The cover art is incorrect too

    One of Pratchetts best.

    What made the experience of listening to Men at Arms the most enjoyable?

    Nigel Planer does a good job of bringing the characters to life.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Captain Vimes. He is nearly everyones favourite.

    What does Nigel Planer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The deep bass of Deaths voice among other things.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. simply due to it being 10 hours(!) long.

    Any additional comments?

    Anyone interested in starting to read Terry Pratchetts Discworld series should probably start with the previous city watch book: Guards Guards!
    There is nothing about this book that cannot be enjoyed on its own but most prefer to follow the characters chronologically.

    Delicious, Clever Fantasy

    This book was excellent fun. Terry Pratchett delivers clever, sardonic humor and a rich setting. Delightful characters are well voiced by Nigel Planer. There are a few bawdy references, but I could listen to it with my 13 yo daughter without wincing.

    worst recording no chapers

    What hat is wrong with you audible!? you charge WAY too much for such a botched production. the narrator is ok but not having any breaks is not ok especially when you accidentally hit the next button that's obviously always open on the home screen so an accidental tremor checking the time or doing anything skips you to the end of the book and unless you noticed how many HOURS were left in the book you just going to have to settle for missing some parts or lots of relistening. Extremely disappointed.

    Such a comfort

    It’s fun, funny, and lighthearted. The narration is superb. The characters have become fast imaginary friends.

    Super Buch, schlechter Ton

    Eigentlich hätte dieses Hörbuch ja 5 Sterne verdient (oder mehr). Wie alle Nachtwächter Bücher ist auch dieses super und man kann es wie nur wenige Bücher auch gerne öfter hören/lesen. Nigel Planer bringt die Charaktere sehr glaubhaft herüber. Hauptmann Mumm oder hier in der englischen Version "Captain Vimes", und den Troll Detritus stelle ich mir nun schon immer mit der Stimme von Nigel Planer vor wenn ich die deutschen Hörbücher höre oder die Bücher lese.

    Leider jedoch ist die Tonqualität des Hörbuches miserabel. Es ist ständig ein lautes Rauschen zu hören. Wenn man das Hörbuch über Lautsprecher hört geht es, doch mit Kopfhörern muss man die Lautstärke voll aufdrehen um die Stimmen zu verstehen. Dann kann man zwar alles gut verstehen, das Rauschen nervt jedoch ungemein nach einer Weile. Man kann nur hoffen das Audible irgendwann einmal das Hörbuch mit einem Rauschfilter digital nachbearbeitet.

    Schlechter Schnitt und schlechter Ton

    Das Buch an sich ist, wie fast alles von Terry Pratchett, sehr gut. Nur leider ist die Aufnahmequalität mehr als mangelhaft. Manche Stellen klingen sehr dumpf und haben starkes hintergrundrauschen, andere Stellen hingegen sind ganz ok. Da das Hörbuch nun schon etwas älter ist wäre das sicher verschmerzbar. Was hingegen nicht akzeptable ist, ist der Schnitt. Zwischen den einzelnen Kapiteln (oder CDs ?) klebt entweder ein Wort ohne die kleinste Pause am anderen oder es werden ganz Silben oder Wörter komplett weggeschnitten. Das ist einfach nur schlampig zusammengesetzt.

    Ein Klang wie zu Mittelwellenzeiten

    Ein Abschnitt dumpf und mumpfig, der nächste deutlich heller, insgesamt hat man fast das Gefühl, hier wird einem durch das Telefon vorgelesen. Das Vergnügen am eigentlichen Buch wird damit deutlich beeinträchtigt. Für mich folgt daraus, keine weiteren der "alten" Hörbücher zu kaufen. Schade drum.

    Specifically not bemoaning the sound quality

    After reading many reviews about the sound quality (or lack thereof) I was expecting car-phone-in-the-90s type sounds. But it's really okay!

    The story, as always, is amazing!

    Pick an accent and stick to it

    hate the accents used for Colon, Carrot and Angua. since when do werewolves sound like Neil the Hippy?. there are also times when he forgets which accent he used so just blags his way through.

    Solid novel, but the audiobook…

    doesn’t have any chapters. This makes jumping back to a certain point in the story really annoying.

    Great audiobook despite it's age

    Yes, this audiobook is a vintage.
    The audio quality isn't exactly crisp.
    But it's still serviceable. Just give the sample a try and decide from there if it's ok for you.

    There are much worse recordings on here.

    One of STPs best books and finally one in good technical audio quality.
    Love it.
