Children Ages 8+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Stephen Briggs, who has dramatized many of Pratchett’s books for the stage and audio, is the best choice to narrate this 1971 classic. First, there is only flatness; then come the carpet and tribes of carpet people. After their village is destroyed by the mysterious force called Fray, the Munrungs tribe treks across the carpet of hairs and dust to find a new home. Briggs effectively captures the the two disparate brothers—Snibril’s logical voice of reason and his older brother's comically oafish commands. Briggs also excels in his delivery of the frustrated banter between the Shaman Pismire, with his pearls of wisdom, and the obtuse former King Brocando, with his obnoxious bravado. Overall, Briggs provides the ideal narration for Pratchett’s trademark humor. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
