To the consternation of the patrician, Lord Vetinari, a new invention has arrived in Ankh-Morpork - a great clanging monster of a machine that harnesses the power of all of the elements: earth, air, fire and water.
This being Ankh-Morpork, it's soon drawing astonished crowds, some of whom caught the zeitgeist early and arrive armed with notepads and very sensible rainwear.
Moist von Lipwig is not a man who enjoys hard work - as master of the Post Office, the Mint and the Royal Bank his input is, of course, vital...but largely dependent on words, which are fortunately not very heavy and don’t always need greasing. However, he does enjoy being alive, which makes a new job offer from Vetinari hard to refuse....
Steam is rising over Discworld, driven by Mister Simnel, the man with flat cap and sliding rule who has an interesting arrangement with the sine and cosine. Moist will have to grapple with gallons of grease, goblins, a fat controller with a history of throwing employees down the stairs and some very angry dwarfs if he's going to stop it all going off the rails....

"Good story, but the abridgement breaks the fkow"
Terry Pratchett booked are always sit the small turns off phrase, the quick wit and word play.
Unfortunately, abridging the book review much of this charm.
Tony Robinson does an admirable job narrating and bringing characters to life. I would recommend the unbridged version ahead of this.
"Another Run away success"
another brillinat Disk world novel brought to life by Tony Robinson
Iron Girda crossing the mountains fantastic
As always Commander Sam Vimes brilliant but also love Moist
The Discworld Steams into the Future
"Prachett and Robinson, you can't do better."
Yes, I love the discworld series and with Tony Robinson doing the reading its Heaven!
Sam Vines is a great character and one of my favourite on the Discworld.
So much, I think Tony Robinson is one of the best Narrators only to be rivaled by Stephen Fry!
"The Funniest Train Journey You'll Ever Take"
Both versions are equally as good
Tony Robinson was born to read Pratchett novels, he is funny and brings the book to life
All of them, they are funny, whitty but I love Harry & Dick
Yes, and I enjoyed every minute,
