In Terry Pratchett’s fantastical tale, a small sect of blundering witches sets out on a remarkable journey to the city of Genua to stop the prince’s marriage. It’s a fun adventure geared toward the younger generation but thoroughly enjoyable by listeners of all ages. Narrator Nigel Planer is incredibly charming and thoroughly precise in his delivery. His witty English accent adds to the adventure and fantasy elements of this story. Planer is so good that his narration is less an inspired reading than a remarkable one-man show. A theatrical atmosphere is created from his rich pallet of ominous tones and whiny witchlike voices. L.B.
