Description

A Shivering of Worlds.

Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. The owls and the foxes can sense it and Tiffany Aching feels it in her boots. An old enemy is gathering strength. This is a time of endings and beginnings, old friends and new, a blurring of edges and a shifting of power. Now Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad. 

As the fairy horde prepares for invasion, Tiffany must summon all the witches to stand with her. To protect the land. Her land. There will be a reckoning.... 

The Final Discworld Novel.

The end...

I am sad that this is the last book. These stories are so crafted and gently clever that they make me happy to read, listen to or just think about them. RIP Sir Terry

Too Short

Pratchett's last work was quintessentially him, but could have worn being twice the length. Alas, he left us too soon.

The End

A wonderful end, Unfinished but written as much of his own death as the characters.

Why it's impossible not to love, if you're a Kevin

Read it first. It will hurt if you're an old fan. Pay attention to the afterword. Then read the interview with Neil Gaiman regarding TSC's real planned ending, see how everything falls into place and love it. Or read the interview first if you want to ease everything.

NO DEFINITE ENDING! MASTERPIECE NONE THE LESS!

EXCEPTIONAL MASTERPIECE! BUT...: SADLY AN ENDING OR A WRAP-UP LACKS SO CATASTROPHICALLY THAT IT PHYSICALLY HURTS IN YOUR HEART AND BRAIN! ;-( CRITICISM QUA AND WITH THE GREATEST RESPECT FOR: SIR TERRY PRATCHETT AS A PERSON AS SIR PRATCHETT'S PHENOMICALLY PRODUTIVENESS AND DEEPLY DETAILLED AS VARIED WORLD AND UNIVERSE IN DISCWORLD TERMINOLOGY IS ASTOUNDING!! HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BANG UP TO "STAR WARS", IN MY HUMBLE OPINION RESPECT ET R.I.P. POSTULATE: DESPITE SIR TERRY PRATCHETT'S SEVERE ILLNESS HE STILL FINISHED THIS MASTERPIECE THAT SOMEHOW IS SUPPOSED TO ROUND OFF THE "TIFFANY ACHINS" SAGA. NOT TO MENTION SIR PRATCHETT'S VIVID AND VIGOROUS, AS RIGID AND INDUSTRIOUS PRODUCTIVE AS DWARF STEEL AND DWARFS MAKING SAID DWARF STEEL SIR TERRY PRATCHETT'S PERSISTENCE IN - WITH A RECORD INHUMAN 14 MORE YEARS OF KEEPING OUTLIVING A PHYSICALLY DESTRUCTIVE EXTREMELY SEVERELY DISABLING ILLNESS WHICH NONETHELESS: IS A MENTALLY TORTURING MEDICAL CONDITION ATTACKING THE BRAIN AND MEMORY AND ITS STRUCTURE AS ALSO SADLY AS I UNDERSTAND, CHANGE THE WAY SAID AFFLICTED BRAIN WORKS LEAST NOT TO MENTION THE EFFECTS OF SAID FOREMENTIONED MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND ITS FOLLOWING VARIOUS AFFLICTIONS! EVEN THOUGH THE FAMILY AND RELATIVES OF SIR TERRY PRATCHETT, WHOM GREATLY HELPED, SIR - WITH THE LAST 5 BOOKS AND ESPECIALLY THE LAST TIFFANY ACHINGS STORY LINE BOOK, I SAY THIS: DO NOT COVER BEHIND THE SAME STANDARD STATEMENT OR STATE OF MIND THAT: MANUSCRIPTS AND STORY LINES ARE NEVER EVER AND WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED! OR EVEN GRANTED ACCESS TO, AS I UNDERSTAND! I DO NOT KNOW THIS - BUT! : WITH THE WAY SIR TERRY PRATCHETT DID WORK AS A WRITER AND CREATIVE SOUL AND PERSON ; SINCE SIR TERRY PRATCHETT DID SO VIGOROUSLY AND RIDGID INSIST ON FINISHING THE LAST BOOK - THIS ONE I JUST READ, THEN: AS THE FEEGLES AND TIFFANY ACHINS WOULD SAY AND THINK IN BOTH 1 2 3 AND 4TH THOUGHT AS 2 SIGHT : IT IS A CRIME AGAINST CULTURE AND THE STORY LINE AND THE WRITER AND: US!!! THE READERS WHO GREW UP WITH THE GREATEST STORY LINE WITH THE GREATEST DIVERSITY AND GREATEST INTENSITY! WE ARE DEVOTED AND IF ANYTHING EXISTS OF A STORY LINE OR DRAFTS OR PAGES OR EVEN JUST AN IDEA SCRIBBLED DOWN FOR A: DEFINITELY LAST DISCWORLD BOOK AND A DEFINITELY LAST TIFFANY ACHINS BOOK ; WHICH INCIDENTLY WOULD DO WRAPPING UP AND CREATING AN ENDING OR EXIT HAPPILY EVER AFTER OR EXIT SOUL MATE LESS AND ALONE IN AND WITH HERSELF ; THEN! : WE DESERVE TO GET IT!!! SINCE IT IS THE GREATEST WORKING IN A DYNAMIC AND DIVERSE "HELLISHLY" LONG BOOK SERIES AND CATEGORIES OF SUB-SERIES ; AS TIFFANY ACHINS STORY WHICH SLOWLY WARMS UP TO INVOLVING THE ENTIRETY OF ALL MAJOR CHARACTERS IN ALL FOREMENTIONED SUB-SERIES OR IN THE ENTIRETY OF THE SERIES! WRITTEN WITH THE GREATEST RESPECT FOR THE WISHES OF SIR TERRY PRATCHETT'S LAST WILL AND WISHES BUT BE IT SO NOT, THAT IS IT SO ; THEN HONOUR SIR TERRY AND US READERS AND DEEP FANS BY EITHER YOURSELF MAKING A BANG OF A ROUNDED ENDNING OR HIRING A GHOST WRITER OR PUBLIC DOMAIN LICENSE ALL THE WRITINGS SIR TERRY PRATCHETT SADLY DID NOT HAVE MORE LIFE ALLOTTED TO BE ABLE TO SO HIMSELF! WITH THE GREATEST RESPECT FOR SIR TERRY PRATCHETT AND HIS FAMILY AND COLLEAGUES IN WRITING

Terry Pratchett's Goodbye

This is Terry Pratchett's last novel, perhaps not a literary masterpiece, but a deeply moving farewell. Of course the story is funny and entertaining, but more important is the message, he sends us, well knowing that his life will come to end soon. He is not a preacher and his voice is full of humour, but what he tells us goes right to the heart: Make the best of your life, use your talent and skills, be understanding and tolerant of others, give a helping hand, whenever you can and you will find happiness.

Of course Terry Pratchett fans know Stephen Briggs already and he is perfect as in all the other Discworld novels. His voice gives so much color and live to the characters, you would miss something, if you would just read the story.

The Shepherd's crown is about the young witch, Tiffany Aching, we already know from previous novels. Despite her youth, it falls to her to save the world again from an invasion of the elves. Of course she is not alone in this fight, old allies like the Nat Mac Feegles are with her, but there are also some new friends like Geoffrey, a young man, who wants to become a witch and his goat Mephistopheles.

No doubt, there are enough bizarre elements in this story to create mirth and laughter, but overall, you will feel a touch of nostalgia and sadness. It is Terry Pratchett's Goodbye to his readers and friends.

Letztes Werk des großen Terry Pratchett

Das posthum erschienene letzte Werk von Terry Pratchett. Den fehlenden Feinschliff merkt man zwar leider an allen Ecken und Enden, daher auch nur drei Sterne, aber ich bereue es nicht es gehört zu haben. Der Autor hat mich mein Leben lang begleitet und sein kluger Witz wird mir in Zukunft sehr fehlen.

Der Sprecher Stephen Briggs leistet sehr gute Arbeit und spricht in einem wunderbaren ruhigen englischen Akzent, aber ich empfehle gute Englisch-Kenntnisse, um Story und Wortwitz folgen zu können.

Ein angemssener Abschied für die Serie

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

Das Buch ist ein gelungener Abschluss der Scheibenwelt Serie der auch äußerst angemssener Schlussstrich für den Autor darstellt

Welcher Moment von The Shepherd's Crown ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Die momente die mit Esmeraldas Tod zusammenhängten

Hat Ihnen Stephen Briggs an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

Die Stimmen der Hexen sind meiner Meinung nach untrennbar mit seiner Stimme verbunden

Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

Ja

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Ich weine nicht oft über fictionale Geschichten es ist sogar sehr selten. Das ist das zweite Mal das mir das passiert ist

A wonderful farewell to his fans.

I had been waiting a long time to takkle the Tiffany aching story's, kind of saving them up, like a good wine for special occasions. I always loved the witches story's best, and Tiffany aching made no exception. They are all wonderful, warm and lovely and made me caggle quite a lot. But I did not expect, that with the last one the master himself would help me to finally deal with his loss! This book is a soothing gift to his fans, helping us to deal with death as part of living.

Unfortunately...

Was braucht dieses Hörbuch, um für Sie zu einem 4- oder 5-Sterne Hörerlebnis zu werden?

Eine bessere Geschichte. Der Handlungstrang ist viel zu kurz und wird ohne Spannung ausgewälzt.

Was hat Sie am meisten an Terry Pratchetts Geschichte enttäuscht?

Es fehlt am sprühenden Witz der alten Geschichten, die Charaktere haben Holzschnittformat und die penetrante Gutmenschelei ist auch nervig.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Es ist halt die letzte Geschichte. Wenn man um die Krankheit von Terry Pratchett weiß, erwartet man auch nicht mehr.
