Beschreibung

Brutha is the Chosen One. His god has spoken to him, admittedly while currently in the shape of a tortoise.Brutha is a simple lad. He can't read. He can't write. He's pretty good at growing melons. And his wants are few.He wants to overthrow a huge and corrupt church. He wants to prevent a horribly holy war. He wants to stop the persecution of a philosopher who has dared to suggest that, contrary to the Church's dogma, the Discworld really does go through space on the back of an enormous turtle. (Which is true, but when has that ever mattered?) He wants peace and justice and brotherly love. He wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please.But most of all, what he really wants, more than anything else, is for his god to choose someone else...Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.

Kritikerstimmen

"Pratchett is the funniest parodist working in the field today, period." (The New York Review of Science Fiction)
"Terry Pratchett is simply the best humorous writer of the 20th century. Wodehouse, Waugh, Sharpe, etc. all have their merits, sometimes considerable, but Pratchett really is a cut above the rest." (Oxford Times)

Hörerrezensionen

Hilfreichste

Eines der besten Bücher Pratchetts

Die Geschichte um den Propheten Brutha ist eine der besten, die Pratchetts Feder entsprungen ist. Der Sprecher ist ebenfalls sehr gut, die Stimmen sind sehr unterschiedlich und sofort wiedererkennbar, auch wenn es etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig ist, daß der Prophet einer Wüstenreligion einen schottischen Akzent hat.
Was zur Abwertung führt, ist die Tonqualität. Die gesamte Aufnahme klingt extrem dumpf, was aber scheinbar bei mehreren älteren Pratchett-Aufnahmen der Fall ist, bedauerlicherweise.

very up to date

possibly one of the best of Terry Pratchett's discworld stories and certainly up to date with current, ideological developments - sadly.
