You will find quite a bit missing on these ones SJ the unabridged ones are the same as the book word for word.

Yes, but you get something like nine CDs with the unabridged ones. Check out your local library, they sometimes do them there. :)

Not-as-big-medium-size-jock-but-bigger-than-wee-jock jock always gets me. still think that only exists to screw with stephen. :lol:

Celia also read Equal rights. I dunno, I listened to them in order the first time so her books didn't bother me (i even liked the little touch of still having Nigel voice DEATH in her books). I thought that was going to be a running thing with her voicing female character driven stories and Nigel doing Male character stories but they dropped her after two books.

Thats ok, though. i always did like Nigel's Nanny Ogg best.

Yes, I've always thought Dwarvish was in there for the same reason. :lol:

OK folks.

What would you recommend to me as my first toe-dip into DW audio?

I'm a virgin, you see.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
