Not the original! No songs!

I was expecting a remastered version of the original. But wait as I may, no songs! The songs are what made my childhood memories and the flashy sound effects did not make up for the nostalgic character of the original.

Best history book on Australia ever!

There are many history books I would re-read but I'm now on my second listening. This book is full of hilarious jokes and David Hunt's accented impersonations of characters make listening to the audiobook version better than reading the text. I bought a copy for my family for Christmas.

A book about being funny from someone who really isn't.

This book swapped between common sense, absurdity and formulating corny jokes. Making it It feel like a book about being funny from someone who really wasn't. I believe this book was well written, however the only content of real value came at the end and I have read the same content in another of the authors books.

Wordy and trite

This is a book that would have been improved greatly from cutting down on wordy explanations fraught with alliteration, slang, gendered case and unnecessary synonyms. These made the audio-book dull and feel trite. For the majority of the book I felt that 92 was too high a goal for the author and that the number of techniques should have been compressed into 40 "worth while reading" techniques rather than watering down the quality with quantity.

This story is considered a timeless classic for a reason. However, this audio rendition may not have portrayed it in its best light. There were often odd switches in the voices of characters, sometimes being portrayed by a voice actor, sometimes by the narrator. This was very jarring and caused lots of confusion towards the beginning of the story.

Great story, the only complaint being the audio is a little scratchy. Throw away the movie and read the book.

Poor sound quality and the story seemed to get lost with each new chapter. This was my first Terry Pratchett book, the story was entertaining but I doubt that I could sit through another book.
