Publisher's Summary

Tiffany Aching put one foot wrong, made one little mistake...and now the spirit of winter is in love with her. He gives her roses and icebergs, says it with avalanches and showers her with snowflakes - which is tough when you're 13, but also just a little bit... cool.

And just because the Wintersmith wants to marry you is no excuse for neglecting your chores. So Tiffany must look after Miss Treason, who's 113 and has far too many eyes, learn the secret of Boffo, catch Horace the cheese, stop the gods from seeing her in the bath - "Crivens!" - Oh, yes, and be helped by the Nac Mac Feegles - whether she wants it or not.

But if Tiffany doesn't work it all out, there will never be another springtime.

    Story
    "The twist of the Seasons"

    Pratchett returns to the idea of belief and seasons. This should not off put anyone with strong views about what do believe in; rather this is about the effects of belief and how societies work with belief through charity; exchange and tradition.

    It's also light and funny. Morals without preaching but a dose of guilt. If you enjoy the others go right and head and dive in.

    Story
    "Enchanting!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Been a Pratchett fan for several years but shied away from Tiffany Aching tales thinking they would be too immature, was very wrong! Just as imaginative and vivid as other discworld novels, with the same underlying social commentary. Loved it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anything with the feegles!

    "The only joy to be found in winter"
    Would you listen to Wintersmith again? Why?

    I repeatedly listen and re-read Terry Pratchett's material as there is always something new to find.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    While the feegles are always a delight, and Tiffany a quintessential element my favourite character in the Wintersmith is Ms. Treason. As a witch who understands that perception is everything, she brings


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

    Stephen Briggs brings a voice tuned to Terry Pratchett's writings that is not present in other readers.

    "Magic!"

    Superb, I love all the Tiffany aching books so far but this is my favorite (have not yet listened to the unabridged 'I Shall Wear Midnight' My credits arrive in a few days!)This is the funniest Tiffany book so far and has lots of Nanny Ogg, my favorite Discworld character, and the Feegles are hilarious as always. Tiffany has really grown up in this story. Stephen Briggs is a superb reader as usual. I'm just sad that there is only one more after this. ' Wailey Wailey'

    "Wintersmith or how Summer (through Tiffany Aching) triumphed over Winter."

    Terry Pratchett's tale of how Tiffany danced with the Wintersmith and he fell in love with her, the hilarious rescue of the Summer Lady from Hades by the NAC Mac Feegles.And the setting of the world to rights.

    "Inconsistency between chapters"

    It still seems as if bits are missed out of the story and the sound and tone do not remain constant throughout. Parts do not seem to link up with the end of the previous chapter.

    "LOVE LOVE LOVE this book"
    If you could sum up Wintersmith in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, griping, funny.


    Any additional comments?

    Just when you think that Tiffany has been through the most exciting, amazing adventure that test her to her limits….. and then you hear the story of Wintersmith!! WOW. Love it. One moment you are terrified and then you fall off the bed laughing and you have to scroll back and listen to that same line over and over again because its so funny.

    Story
    "KIDS REVIEW: Tiffany Aching grows up - aged 9 plus"

    My boys (aged 7 and 9) love the Wee Free Men, but they did find this book of the series the most challenging. I think it is because Tiffany Aching is growing up, and her friends are older too - teen age witches taking on their first cottage, getting "followers" and learning about the rules of life an death.

    I'm not saying they didn't enjoy it. It just required some explaining in part and (oddly) a trip out to see Morris Dancers and a may pole. If your children have never seen a Morris dance troop then the idea of the Dark Morris just won't make any sense at all. Once we'd seen the Green Man etc, the book fell much more in to place.

    Oh and my 7 year old son did think there was a bit too much love stuff in it. The fact that Tiffany rather liked the fact that someone put her face on snowflakes, had him ask suspiciously if there was going to be kissing.

    I really enjoyed it, but I've marked it on behalf of my boys. So gripping story, great narration but not enough fightin', steelin' and drinkin'.
