Celebrated voice talent Andy Serkis has a marvelous time narrating this 13th entry (of 41) in the late fantasy writer Terry Pratchett's vaunted DISCWORLD series. First published in 1992, it all starts when a once powerful god, Om, finds himself trapped in the body of a talking tortoise and seeks help from a novice at the local monastery. Satirical theological and philosophical discussions abound as Serkis finds voices for everyone from the tortoise to the evil "Quisitor" to a very New-Age-California-sounding professor. English film treasure Bill Nighy delivers Pratchett's pithy footnotes, while Peter Serafinowicz provides the voice of Death himself. Most of all, Serkis nicely captures Pratchett's true and highly entertaining style, silly and profound all at once. B.P. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
