The Discworld universe is composed of a vast array of magical creatures, but what was the inspiration for them? Michael Fenton Stevens delivers this compendium with a charming English accent and clear enunciation that engages the listener even throughout the drier parts of the book. While fans will appreciate the vignettes about the inspiration for the world's species, even more entertaining are the varied voices Stevens creates for them: deep bass tones for the dim-witted trolls, high-pitched cackling for the witches, and an aristocratic lilt for the vampires. He successfully distinguishes between the main text and quotes from referenced Discworld novels with effective pauses and changes in tone. A solid addition to any Pratchett fan's listening library.
