Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books rated it 3 years ago
The book where we learn how the Librarian of the Unseen University ended up as an orang-utan. (This happens on the very first pages and anyone who's read at least one Discworld book knows this anyway, so I'm officially not considering it a spoiler.)

Series: Discworld #1 Although not exactly in line with the other Discworld series, this first book is still a fun satire of 1980s fantasy novels with lots of funny bits and quips. I enjoyed Nigel Planer's narration, and I'm happy I went the audio route this time. I'm counting this for the Relics...

"All right, put the wretched thing back." Adrian carefully replaced the small fluffy teddy bear above Hex's keyboa...

If you look up the wonderful “Discworld Reading Order” guide, this is listed as the first of the City Watch novels. The mostly ineffectual Night Watch, consisting of Captain Vimes, Sergeant Colon, Corporal Nobbs, and Carrot Ironfoundersson, the Watch's new volunteer, finds itself dealing with a secr...

Another fun Discworld story featuring everyone's favorite witches. The plot incorporates various fairy tales and the road trip to the far away city had numerous laugh out load sections. Listened to the audio read by Nigel Planer who did his usual reliable job.
