problem with ISIS audio book
on 6 January 2009
There is a problem with this audio cd - it does not play in order. ISIS have been informed of this so hopefully they will adjust the next releases.
The disc plays track 10, 11, 12, etc before it plays 1, 2, 3, and so on if playing on media player.
This has been caused by the naming of the tracks in each folder as:- track 1, track 2, etc, instead of track 01, track 02, etc.
This problem takes away two stars from the 5 star story.
Jingo is a 5 star story about Sam Vimes, commander of the City Watch. Commander Vimes's obvious life-weary disbelief of all things political is a wonder to behold. This story follows Sam and his men into the war between Klatch and Ankh Morpork.
It is Mr Pratchett at his mercurial best - well worth reading and well worth listening to, in both the abridged version Jingo) (read by, and enacted by, Tony Robinson) and this unabridged version (read by Nigel Planer). This unabridged version is also available in multidisc format (Jingo), but it is a lot more expensive.
Mr Robinson is my favourite reader of these books, Mr Planer is my least favourite, but has improved during his time reading these books and does an acceptable job on this one, but I still find him flat in comparison to Mr Robinson.
