The British humorist and fantasy author Terry Pratchett loved the sound of words. He often dictated his award-winning, bestselling Discworld novels just to hear how they sounded. With the enthusiasm and focus of a fan and friend, former personal assistant and now director of Pratchett's literary estate Rob Wilkins employs an enormous number of happy footnotes (Pratchett loved footnotes) to guide listeners through Pratchett's eventful life, which began with spending half his childhood in the local library and then apprenticing as a journalist before he became a writer loved by millions. Wilkins's voice becomes gentle, somber, and almost defiant when describing Pratchett's long battle with early-onset Alzheimer's. Pratchett forged on, using his intelligence, wit, and imagination to write another dozen books--all slated for new audiobook editions. B.P.
