Terry Pratchett Audiobook CDs 2 for £8 at The Works

12
Found 8th Jul
Some excellent choices, having tried two stores they had a few titles that the other didn't.

Mort
Going Postal
Raising Steam
Unseen Academicals
Night Watch
Thief of Time

£5 each (which is already cheap compared to the printed £14.99 price) but 2 for £8 is a superb amount of Pratchett for the money.

Thanks, that's better than their official website price due to the delivery charge.

Ah, they have Snuff on the ebay list, but not in store. They had Mort in store, but not on ebay... So must be a stock thing.

Sadly missed, a true genius with words.

These are, I think, the abridged versions narrated by Tony Robinson. Whilst very good (and a bargain at this price - I'm voting hot) I've been spoilt by the unabridged versions narrated by Stephen Briggs which are excellent. Thing is, you'll never get them for this sort of price.

I can't help but feel like the price of audio books and the low sales are a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Somebody asked me if I've heard the Terry Pratchett Audiobooks by Nigel Planner?!

Agree. The prices of them are an utter disgrace

I've spotted these in a few of their shops but they are the abridged version. Audible is a good place to get the Discworld audiobooks if you pay attention to the offers. For instance, the 3 months for £3.99 that came up recently.

The Tony Robinson audiobooks are abridged. They're awful as he mispronounces (in my opinion) the names of some of the characters/places, and uses stupid accents/voices in places. The full-fat unabridged ones are read by either Stephen Briggs or Nigel Planer and are well read with correct pronunciation :-)

Nigel Planer's take on Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg is possibly my favourite audiobook voice acting of all time.

Try 3 extra credits for £17 available if you have a monthly subscription even at the reduced £3.99 subscription, I did it it was happy to get 4 audio-books for £21. You get Stephen Briggs or Nigel Planer reading them.
