The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett (audiobook)

The Light Fantastic  - Terry Pratchett

Series: Discworld #2

 

In which we experience more Rincewind and Twoflower shenanigans and we learn the Librarian's origins. Alright, so at this point the Librarian hasn't been previously introduced, but he becomes such an iconic Discworld character that I feel he's worth a mention. Oh, and we meet Cohen the Barbarian too.

 

This was a quick and entertaining read (or listen, technically), with a good performance by the narrator but you can tell that this was an early recording. The sound quality isn't terrible but it's not quite up to standard.

 

I think this is supposed to fit one of the holidays for 24 Festive Tasks but I haven't looked them over to see which one yet. I haven't really been keeping up.
