    Description

    This is the Discworld's last continent, a completely separate creation.  

    It's hot. It's dry...very dry. There was this thing once called The Wet, which no one believes in. Practically everything that's not poisonous is venomous. But it's the best bloody place in the world, all right?

    And it'll die in a few days, except.... Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Champion sheep shearer, horse rider, road warrior, beer drinker, bush ranger and someone who'll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he's sober? A man in a hat whose luggage follows him on little legs, who's about to change history by preventing a swagman stealing a jumbuck by a billabong?

    Yes...all this place has between itself and wind-blown doom is Rincewind, the inept wizard who can't even spell wizard. Still...no worries, eh?

    Also, Terry Pratchett would like it to be known that The Last Continent is not a book about Australia. It's just vaguely Australian.

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

    Commentaires

    "Pratchett is the funniest parodist working in the field today, period." (The New York Review of Science Fiction)

    "Terry Pratchett is simply the best humorous writer of the 20th century. Wodehouse, Waugh, Sharpe, etc. all have their merits, sometimes considerable, but Pratchett really is a cut above the rest." (Oxford Times

    The last hurrah/continent

    Excellent as usual, if one of the more peripheral works, still funny and insi.

    My least favorite Discworld novel so far

    Kind of struggled to finish this one. It had some funny moments, but it really didn't reel me in like Discworld usually does.

    Aussieness and wizards, could not be more perfect

    Two worlds of fantacy colide with elements of Australian culture and the sublime storytelling of Terry Pratchett. Rincewind the Wizard is a charcter we love. Nigel Planer makes you feel like you are in the center of an epic adventure.

    Love the story!

    This is still one of my favourite Terry Pratchett stories. I like Nigel Planet's interpretation of the characters too.

    A shame about the sound quality though. I would wish for a better recording.

    The Last Continent

    I enjoy Terry Pratchett's Discworld series very much. That said, in parts I find this book drags a bit, as if there is too much in it.
    However, I will read/listen to it again sometime. This is about the 4th time I've either listened to or read this book.

    Always enjoyable.

    If you love TP, you will thoroughly enjoy this rendition of The Last Continent. As Aussies, we doubly appreciate TP's salute to Vegemite and Waltzing Matilda, and smile wryly at Nigel Planer's attempts at an Aussie accent. Cheers Mate.

    The Origins of Australian Icons

    Once again full of laughter out loud even on your own. Love Terry Pratchett's sense of humour and realistic view of the world. Make sure your sense of humour is open to the subtle bits. A total delight!

    Well performed, but story a bit try-hard in places

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    In general, there are plenty of laughs and digs, but this book trips up the formula - poke fun at things/ideas - and ends up trying too hard to make everyone else look silly. Mr Pratchett, in this book, proves to be a mixture of politically correct romantic on the one side, and ardent rationalist on the other. I've enjoyed his books till now, and hadn't noticed this tension before, but it definitely detracted from my enjoyment, to the point where I would feel like jumping forward in the recording, just to avoid his, once again, bludgeoning to death of some idea that he obviously doesn't like. It seems far from open-minded, and I'll probably think twice before I buy another of his more recent books.
    The performance is, as always, nicely done by Nigel Planer, who I could easily listen to for hours ... as I just did!

    Would you recommend The Last Continent to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not, though happily there are many other Pratchett books that I would recommend :)

    Hiliarious and brilliant

    One of my top 5 favourite Discworld books, strongly influenced no doubt by the hilarious narration of Nigel Planer. He captures the Exian essence brilliantly and once again is a voice I cannot disassociate from Rincewind. He IS Rincewind! Absolutely hilarious book, I listen to it often and still can't help the giggles.

    Tonqualität zerstört das ganze Hörbuch!

    Dies ist eines meiner Lieblingsbücher, aber die Qualität der Aufnahme ruiniert das ganze Erlebnis. Als ob man einen Kasettenrecorder für eine Aufnahme neben einen alten Lautsprecher gestellt hätte. Schade!!

    Grottenschlechte Aufnahme

    Die Geschichte ist toll (Pratchett eben).
    Die Tonqualität ist grausam schlecht. Nachdem ich davor "Monstrous Regiments" (gesprochen von Stephen Briggs) gehört habe, ist dieses Hörbuch eine echte Enttäuschung. Der andere Sprecher (Nigel Planer) ist zwar eine Umstellung, aber das ist nicht das Problem. Es klingt (AAX-Version!) wie aus einem schallgedämpften Sarg vorgelesen und macht beim Zuhören nicht wirklich Spaß.
    Die Aufnahmequalität ist das Geld nicht wert. Trotzdem 3 Punkte, weil: Die Story kann ja nichts dafür.

    Schlechte Sprachqualität

    Das Buch ist ein typisches Pratchettbuch, welches entgegen des Covers und aller anderen Umstände gar nicht über Australien verfasst wurden. Nein gar nicht. Allerdings ist die Sprachqualität sehr schlecht. Der Sprecher gibt sich die größte Mühe, jedoch ist die Aufzeichnungsqualität sehr schlecht, also würde es sich um eine schlechte Kopie von einer Kassette handeln.

    Leider gekürtzte Fassung. Buch selbst Super!

    Leider gekürzt und nur bei genauem Hinsehen als selches zu erkennen. Musste jetzt zusätzlich die ungekürzte Fassung kaufen.

    Das Buch selbst ist Spitze unx 5 Sterne wert.

    A Near-Rinsewind Moment

    Funny and amusing all the time. It's a bit random in some parts and the jokes get a little tad repetitive at the end but if you don't binge listen to it you'll be fine.

    In comparison rather substandard.

    The story is an incoherent mess that not even Pratchetts genius is able to untangle.
