Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Tennant

Fantasy • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1971

David Tennant is at his best with his narration of this whimsical fantasy for children and adults alike. The audiobook was Pratchett's first published novel in 1971 and was rewritten 30 years later. Whether viewed as a parable of war, apropos of current events, or as a mere humorous tale of little creatures living in your carpet, it's a story that begs to be listened to. Tennant thrives on portraying the large cast of characters who range from power-hungry villains to two brothers who are off on an adventure. He has a seemingly endless store of accents, and that's just the beginning. The personalities he creates are expressive and multidimensional. For example, the emperor is mostly a wimp, but he can show courage when it counts. J.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
