Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett (audiobook)

Equal Rites - Terry Pratchett, Celia Imrie

Series: Discworld #3

 

I'm sticking to my original rating because although the book is somewhat entertaining and there are definitely Prachettisms peppered throughout, it's basically the appendix of the Discworld. It's a mostly forgotten appendage to the Discworld cannon that only ever gets referenced via Granny Weatherwax having been to Ankh-Morpork previously. I also have trouble relating to both Granny Weatherwax and Esk in this story, which doesn't help.

 

I wasn't a fan of Celia Imrie's performance here. I liked her narration of other Discworld books but Simon's constantly congested voice and her weird "ooks" for the Librarian got on my nerves.
