🎧 Hogfather (Discworld #20, Death #4) by Terry Pratchett Read by Tony Robinson

Hello, fellow audiobook fanatics. Today, I’d like to share my thoughts about the audiobook Hogfather written by Terry Pratchett and read by Tony Robinson. The 20th story in the fantasy series, Discworld, and the 4th to feature my favourite character, Death.

What’s Hogfather about?


Audiobook Listened To: 17th – 18th December 2021

The TV adaptation of the Hogfather is one of my favourite things to watch at Christmas. But, I’ve never actually read the book. Therefore, when I saw this abridged audio version in the Audible sale, I snapped it up.

What did I think about it?

A Really Good Abridged Version Of This Festive Tale.

I haven’t read many of the Discworld books but I’m a huge fan of the TV adaptations. Terry Pratchett’s irreverent writing style appeals to my sense of humour. He draws me into his fantasy world with strong protagonists, well-written antagonists, and a fantastic array of supporting characters (both human and non-human). I like how Terry paces his plots and how the mysteries and threats come to light and are subsequently overcome. But I especially love how Terry infuses his stories with satire and balances tension with humour. The banter and observations in this tale are still just as fantastic.

Tony Robinson’s performance was truely entertaining.

Tony Robinson performance seems to embody each of the characters in this tale. He’s very good at creating voices for each one – Mr Teatime was especially chilling. His reading of the narrative was just as engaging as the dialogue. Tony conveyed the relevant emotions through his performance, altering his pace and cadence accordingly.

This abridged version of the Hogfather entertained and engaged me.

Although I knew the storyline, I found myself listening to the whole audiobook in one sitting! Perhaps I should look out for more Discworld audiobooks. 😘

Here is Terry’s bio and his social media links.
