Description

Mort, like many teenagers, is gangly, unpromising, and struggling with a menial job - in his case, as Death's apprentice. He can barely handle his simple task of ushering souls out of Discworld, but he really screws up when he meets the beautiful Princess Keli, who is scheduled to be assassinated. Going against his boss's wishes, Mort kills Keli's assassin instead, which angers and interferes with Fate. But Mort's heroism seems to be for naught, since Discworld proceeds as though Keli had been killed, while Death has too much fun drinking and gambling to be any help. This is the fourth book in the Discworld series.  

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

Not genius, but pretty good

Nigel Planer isn't my favourite Terry Pratchett reader - I think Stephen Briggs does the best job of interpreting Discworld's regular cast of characters - but he's pretty good, and the story here is kind of interesting, if you're the sort of person who likes to think about what happens to you after you die. And for some reason I found the whole concept of 'Mort' (I had never realized that 'Mort' is both a nerdy-sounding first name and a term for death, which is decidedly not nerdy-sounding) very clever and amusing.

Worth getting if you're a Discworld or Terry Pratchett fan.

Solid story and good narration

However the audio quality is quite hairy, like a caveman out for dinner at a Michelin star restaurant before the invention of scissors.

Great audio

Nigel is a very good narrator for these books and does a fantastic job in this one. Easily understood and with great inflection.

Fantastic listen

A great intro into the discworld and its concept of death.
note amazon requires 15 words in a review so I'm writing this filler.

pleasant

the book itself is funny and keeps you listening. Although the narration is quite good, the recording quality is quite bad and inconsistent, especially when changing from one chapter to the other.

Story gut, Tonqualität miserabel

Schade eigentlich, dass die Audio-Version mit ihrer schlechten Qualität von der lustigen Story ablenkt. Wahrscheinlich ist die deutsche Version besser anzuhören.

Pratchett in fürchterlicher Qualität

Das Buch ist super - hat mich damals an die Discworld gebracht.
Nigel Planer liest klasse!

Die Tonqualität ist allerdings schlichtweg dreist schlecht. Es ist unverschämt, so ein Hörbuch zu einem normalen Preis anzubieten - es gibt wesentlich bessere Versionen dieser Aufnahme!

Terrific story, terrible audio quality

The title really says it all. Terry pratchett is great, I love his humour especially, but the audio quality was not only rocky, but varied.

Ton

Man kann sich nicht über den Sprecher per se beklagen, aber die Audioqualität ist furchtbar.
