Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

A really well written and amazingly performed audio book! This is a perfect sequel to the original trilogy, with the voices and sound effects done to perfection in the audiobook. Would recommend to any Star Wars fan

On a hot midsummer night in Discworld, everything seems perfect - crop circles are turning up everywhere, the witch Magrat Garlick is getting married the next morning, and everyone's buzzing with excitement. Unfortunately, the Lancre All-Comers Morris Team has gotten drunk on a fairy mound, and the elves have returned with the traditional traits of the magical realm of Fairie: evil, malice, murder, cruelty, and kidnapping.

A really good witches book, love when pratchett takes Shakespeare and other classics and spins them 90 degrees!

The story is brilliant and well read by Nigel Planer but I do find the fact that it is just an analogue recording that's been digitised without (it seems) any effort to remove the static and background crackle a bit disappointing .

Will be listening to it again one day!

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, alright?

Really good book, good story (provided you can cross over with real world knowledge of Australia and you have read previous rincewind books from terry Pratchett).

Only disappointment was the fact that the audio quality leaves a lot to be desired at times with static from the original analogue recording nearly drowning the narrator
