Publisher's Summary

Koom Valley? That was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office. With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war-drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin, and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him. Oh...and at six o'clock every day, without fail, with no excuses, he must go home to read Where's My Cow?, with all the right farmyard noises, to his little boy. There are some things you have to do.

What the Critics Say

"Imaginative, witty and consistent: as in consistently funny, consistently clever, and consistently surprising in its twists and turns. Thud! is everything that the 30th novel in a fantasy sequence ought to be, and more." (SFX)

Tony Robinson rocks!

I do like a bit of Mr Pratchett especially when Mr Robinson gives voice. However before death takes me, it would be magic if Mr R. would narrate the unabridged version. The sound of the disc world is. Mr Robinson.

Years of listening

I've been listening to Tony Robinson narrating Terry Pratchett's books for well over a decade. To me, his voices are the voice of Death, of Lord Vetinari, of Sam Vimes, Captain Carrot and so on. My only complaint is that for some recurring characters (e.g. Cheery Littlebottom) he changes their voice between books, sometimes recycling their previous voice for a new character whole changing theirs.

I like the abridging as it makes the books very digestible, each one isn't a multi-day/week commitment, while maintaining the humour and pace of the original.

That said, I would be the first in line to buy any Tony Robinson unabridged versions!
