Time to Celebrate Terry Pratchett

 

 

The Greatest British Fantasy Novelist

 

Before Discworld there was The Carpet People. Terry Pratchett's fantastical imagination is (almost) without parallel. Only Douglas Adams has matched the extraordinary heights of his works.

The audio versions of his works are shared between 3 key performers. The abridged works are the province of Tony Robinson. His light and humerous approach fits perfectly with Pratchett's novels.

The relationship between the two meant that Terry Pratchett chose Robinson to assist him in the performance of his Richard Dimbleby Lecture which concerned the Alzheimer's disease of which he suffered the title of which was Shaking Hands with Death.

The other performers are Nigel Planer and Stephen Briggs.

They share the unabridged novel performances almost evenly with Briggs performing slightly more than Planer. They each bring a different tone and pace to the performance of these highly entertaining novels. It's a matter of taste but I prefer Nigel Planer as his lower tone gives a wider range for all the characters.
