Good, but not the best of the series

Guards! Guards! is one of the earlier discworld books and is the first time we are introduced to the City Watch making it their first in that line of books set in the discworld.

This is a fantastic story and it is well read, however the truth is that Planer is not as good at the unabridged recordings as Briggs and as a result I have lowered my score.

There is also the fact that as this is an early Guards book its just not as fleshed out as some of its sequels and as a result I cant really give it five stars because doing so would cheapen the five star novels from later on in the series.

If you love Discworld you will love this (I did), however while listening to it just remember that there is far better to come

Warning! Do not listen in public!

Would you listen to Guards! Guards! again? Why?

Time and time again. It always makes me laugh out loud, something always takes me by surprise.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Corporal Nobbs, disqualified from the human race for shoving... or is it Lance Constable Carrot the 6 foot dwarf, a picture of innocence, or ... there are just too many to choose from.

Have you listened to any of Nigel Planer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, but I will do now.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Sorry don't do this - read books instead.

Any additional comments?

This is laugh out loud funny, hence my warning. Listen and enjoy.
