Jingo (Discworld Novels (Audio)) Audio CD – Audiobook, MP3 Audio, Unabridged. by. Terry Pratchett (Author). Find all the books, read about the author, and more. The city watch novels started with Corporal Carrot being the center of the story, but Pratchett found his muse in Sam Vimes - who has several different titles, depending on where in the series you are, and how nice Lord Vetinari feels towards Vimes that week. Jingo was written in 1997, when Pratchett was hitting his stride with the Disc and the world was less medieval and more Victorian.

Soul music is another discworld novel where Terry Pratchett explores and pokes fun at a broad theme. There are such a number of Terry Pratchett books that have held this effect for me. Especially the ones where we get Pratchett's unique views on time and relativity. In this case it's rock music and let's face it rock music is a valid target. It tells the story of Imp y Celyn who's a bard. The only other author that I have read that has come onto this plane (so to speak) is Daniel Pinkwater.

Terry Pratchett's "Discworld" novels are hilarious in audiobook format. There are currently almost 40 books in the Discworld series. While Pratchett has a wide array of characters that appear and re-appear, most of the novels tend to revolve around a specific person or group of people. The comedy of Pratchett's writing is enhanced by excellent audio performances. There are several books each devoted to the witches, the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, the inept wizard Rincewind, the wizards of Unseen University, the Nac Mac Feegle, and Death.

Written by Terry Pratchett, Audiobook narrated by Nigel Planer. Unfortunately, Drum Billet never bothered to check the gender of the newborn baby, and it turns out to be a girl.

And so continues my journey through the Discworld novels. I am purposefully restricting my self to one a month to ensure that a) they last as long as possible and b) I don't binge read them all to the detriment of all other books.

A sourcerer is born and his very existence brings the Discworld to the very verge of all-out thaumaturgical war. All that stands in its way is Rincewind, the failed magician, who wants to save the world, or at least the part of it which contains him.

It’s Ankh Morpork again and things are as wretched, dirty, disheveled and motheaten as usual. Suddenly a boy wonder (Coin) arrives at the Unseen University. Coin is the eighth son of an eighth son. His father mostly died when Coin was an infant, but he still would make most parents look good by comparison. It is not long before everything in Ankh Morpork is bright and shiny and that is just the beginning of the disaster. Sourcery is a novel of Discworld. The Discworld novels fall into different categories: Tiffany Aching, Rincewind, the three witches, Sam Vines and the guards, and Death. Each book focuses on one of them, although they cross over and pop up in each others' books all the time. It is best if you start from the beginning of a particular grouping and work your way through, otherwise you'll miss a lot of inside jokes, references, etc. There are charts on the internet that will show you the groupings. You can trust Terry Pratchett to not be too linear and to not be predictable. Sourcery is an early novel of Rincewind. Rincewind is a wizard with little mastery of magic whose feels that his main talent is staying alive in the background of his surroundings. He is also the master of the luggage. He views himself as fearful and not heroic: in other words, the perfect person to save the world. Like all of the Discworld books, the tone is satirical and clever. This book did not make me laugh out loud like Wee Free Men, but it was amusing. Anytime the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse show up in a Discworld novel, it is seriously humorous. Somehow, Terry Pratchett makes all the nonsense work. If you are someone who cannot smile at puns like “martial lore” or “wizards were wazzards” might not fully appreciate Discworld even though most of the cleverness is more sophisticated. Silly farce is also a major force. These books do not contain any scenes, language, or images that would rate even a PG-13 rating at the movies. If a reader does not have sufficient maturity, much of the book will be wasted, because you won’t get the jokes or understand the satire. I count myself lucky to still have so many novels of Discworld ahead of me. Terry Pratchett was brilliant and the master of a fantasy sub-genre that probably belongs to him alone. The Tiffany Aching books remain my favorites, perhaps because they were my first, but probably because of the wee free men.

Past the midpoint of my life, I finally started to read the Discworld books. Having loved the first four books, and expecting to like many of the other Discworld novels, I have to say that Discworld book 5 was surprisingly disappointing. It started off rather strong but it certainly ended laboriously. Many of the scenes in this novel drag out as scenes did not drag out in the first books. There are fewer rich, comedic observations. Rincewind is thoroughly tedious in Sourcery. (Spoiler ahead) — The Nordic myth-inspired ending (I don't want to give too many details) as well as those dealing with the Dungeon Dimension were uninteresting and unfunny. I flipped through half-read pages very quickly towards the end in a hurry to finish the story as opposed to reading quickly and thirstily because the story was so good. I found myself basically in a rush to start book 6 on the assumption that it would be better. Please bear in mind that books 1 through five all elicited four or five stars from me. So it's not as if I'm inclined to not like the Discworld novels. Though I won't know if this is the case until I have read more of a the novels, I suspect book 5 was just a bit of a stumble along an entertaining 41-book journey. Sir Terry typically wrote about two books a year. They couldn't all be four- and five-star achievements. I'm well aware that a majority of people who set out to write fantasy of any kind comedic or otherwise never get even close to the enormity of achievement that Pratchett had. Book 5 has its good moments...but too few of them.

What if you were born not a wizard, but a sorcerer, and what if sorcerers were more powerful than wizards, and what if you were ten years old and had a powerful staff and could do awesome things with just like that and had golden glowing eyes and this creepy manner of speaking, wouldn't it be cool? Oh, and what if your name was Coin? Sourcery is the 5th Discworld novel by Terry Pratchett, and I am set out to read all forty (I think there are forty), because I can't have enough. Every single fantasy cliche you can think of has been parodied with such skill, that it left me laughing until I cried, tears streaming down my face and my stomach hurting.

Let's see here, there is the usual Luggage, the one moving on a million legs, and the orangutan the librarian, and a professional thief by the name of Conina who knows some mean tricks, and Nijel "the Destroyer" who is a barbarian hero in training, drunk Gods in a pub, oh, and Death, and the wizard wars, and the Ice Giants, and flying carpets, and... oy, I need to catch my breath. How can you cram so many things into one book? Turns out, you can, and hysterically so, literally, making fun of everything and anything under the sun. The dialogue alone is worthy a golden medal, on which it would've been written, this medal has been awarded to Terry Pratchett for the funniest dialogue ever. I'm not kidding, I'd fashion one, for sure.

I don't know about you, but I'm off to read Wyrd Sisters.
