Description

Brought to you by Penguin.
The audiobook of Witches Abroad is narrated by Indira Varma (Game of Thrones; Luther; This Way Up). BAFTA and Golden Globe award-winning actor Bill Nighy (Love Actually; Pirates of the Caribbean; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) reads the footnotes, and Peter Serafinowicz (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace; Shaun of the Dead) stars as the voice of Death. Featuring a new theme tune composed by James Hannigan.
'You can't go around building a better world for people. Only people can build a better world for people. Otherwise, it's just a cage.'
There's power in stories. The Fairy Godmother is good. The servant girl marries the Prince. Everyone lives happily ever after... don't they?
The witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick are travelling to far-distant Genua to stop a wedding and save a kingdom. But how do you fight a happy-ever-after, especially when it comes with glass slippers and a power-hungry Fairy Godmother who has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse?
It's hard to resist a good story, even when the fate of the kingdom depends on it...
'No one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect' Daily Mail
'One of our greatest fantasists, and beyond a doubt the funniest' George R.R. Martin
Witches Abroad is the third book in the Witches series, but you can listen to the Discworld novels in any order.

The first book in the Discworld series - The Colour of Magic - was published in 1983. Some elements of the Discworld universe may reflect this.

      • content: This highly amusing audiobook, primarily narrated by Indira Varma, introduces listeners to Magrat, a godmother-witch who must stop the servant Emberella from marrying the prince, which (surprisingly) would destroy the kingdom. But Emberella's fate becomes twisted by a witch who will do whatever it takes to achieve the proper fairy-tale protocol of a happy ending. So Magrat will need the help of two other godmother-witches to head off Emberella from the prince. Occasional footnotes are narrated by Bill Nighy, and Death is candidly voiced by Peter Serafinowicz. With the combination of Varma's distinct British voices for youthful Magrat, gentle Nanny Ogg, and curmudgeonly Granny Weatherwax, listeners will find themselves thoroughly engrossed in the author's renowned Discworld series.
