It is mentioned in "Snuff". Which character — as performed by Helen Atkinson-Wood — was your favorite? I liked the Grandmother's attitude. Though proper, she had an understanding of what fascinates young boys.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? Any additional comments?
We grabed this thinking it wold be fun typical Terry Pratchett, nope its for children. It was well read and im sure there is some sort of fun and learning about poo for kids but its not for adults.
A rarity in that this is a book from within the Discworld series that is actually in the Discworld series. What did you love best about The World of Poo?
Although it's probably more intended as a children's book, it still has all of Terry Pratchett's wit and appeal for adults. I may have snickered to myself throughout the book, but this was based more on the humour than anything juvenile.
It treats the subject matter a lot more maturely than one might think, and makes one think more about poo than they normally would. Also, the book has little consistencies with the other Discworld books, so you definitely feel that it adds to the setting. The contrast between her voice and the subject matter adds to the experience, and the voices were done very well.
I think if I were to have read the book rather than listened to it, some of the characters may not have seemed so 'real'. What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you? Something more clever and informative would have been nice. Seemed like Pratchett was overly tickled to hear someone with a proper English accent say 'poo' and other scatological synonyms. We did not enjoy listening to her performance. What would have made The World of Poo better?
A plot worthy of the author. Terry Pratchett is much better than this. This listen was flat, no plot, no no thought, no challange for the mind. A little poo is funny, a lot of poo is just poo over and over. Half star anyone? How did the narrator detract from the book?
She tried her best, but she could not save this piece of poo. What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment? I love Terry Pratchett's books. This book grew out of Snuff as a plot device, however on its own it is just sad. I hoped this would be like Where's My Cow, something to share with my grandson.
Just too much poo - even for his eight year old mind, and WAY too much for my 60 year old mind.

We were able to save enough money, when combined with a four month payment plan, that he didn't have to take out a school loan. He's a senior now! My buddy Jani passed away seven years ago on August 11th. I am very thankful I did not inherit the same genetic predispositions for addiction, which in the end took his life, because I was living the same lifestyle for many MANY years. I was able to drop into a stay-at-home mom mode like flicking a switch, but Jani was always tortured by not being able to be there fully for his kids because of alcoholism and drug addiction.
He was a sweet, super supportive friend. I see so many people passing judgement on addicts based on their own, or others', experiences and it is so wrong. You gave the music world so much, in so many different ways.
