- Raising Steam - I love trains, Moist Van Lipwig and the Patrician so this ticks all the boxes. I also love the Watercress Line in Hampshire which is background to this novel. I highly recommend trips on it (and the cafe's not bad either).
- Going Postal - when the opening starts with the hero being hanged, you know the story is going to get really interesting!
- Hogfather - In the run up to Christmas I re-read the novel or, more likely as I'm in the midst of Christmas cake baking and so on, listen to the audio book. It helps set the mood!
- Reaper Man - Certainly my favourite of the Death novels, I again re-listen to this in the run up to Harvest Festival. It seems appropriate!
- Men at Arms - Where Vimes really starts to get interesting.
- Interesting Times - My favourite Rincewind novel and it is great to meet Twoflower again.
- Feet of Clay - A great detective story and I love the way Angua develops as a character.
- Snuff - Where Vimes faces the threat of losing those he loves most and how he reacts to that.
- Maskerade - My favourite witches novel and a wonderful send up of The Phantom of the Opera. I also have every sympathy with Agnes Nitt. I can sing reasonably well, I have good hair... well you get the picture.
- The Truth - William de Worde is an interesting character - well bred but honourable. Brave too.
I listen to a lot of audio when cooking and so on. I listen to a lot of BBC comedy (Just a Minute and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue in particular) but I also indulge in audio book adaptations. My better half also likes these when driving. My top ten audio books are below and it is no coincidence they are all by Terry Pratchett.
I'm Allison Symes and write fairytales with bite, especially novels and short stories.
