TOP 500 REVIEWERon 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.

The Night Watch take on the Klatchians!
Politics, Sir Samuel Vimes hates it! Little crimes dressed up as big crimes. Nobby gets in touch with his feminine side.
Another great story!

Sam Vimes at his finest. Vetinari at his Machiavellian best, while Nobby Nobbs explores his inner woman. Don't even think about it; just read the book.

Yet more laugh out loud moments from the genius that is Terry Pratchett. He manages to weave farce and belly laughs into a serious dissertation on the nature of warfare and it's participants. An instant classic.

He never fails to deliver laugh-out-loud humour. Absolutely superb. (Did we think it would be any less?)

What more could you want. Terry Pratchett, writing about Sam Vimes.
