Written By: Terry Pratchett

Narrated By: Stephen Briggs

Date: December 2004

Duration: 7 hours 10 minutes


The first in a series of Discworld novels starring the young witch Tiffany Aching.

A nightmarish danger threatens from the other side of reality. . . .

Armed with only a frying pan and her common sense, young witch-to-be Tiffany Aching must defend her home against the monsters of Fairyland. Luckily she has some very unusual help: the local Nac Mac Feegle—aka the Wee Free Men—a clan of fierce, sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men.

Together they must face headless horsemen, ferocious grimhounds, terrifying dreams come true, and ultimately the sinister Queen of the Elves herself. . . .

    Silly is far too underrated in my opinion and this book is nothing but 10 lb of silly slapped between two book covers. In homage to Douglas Adams, utterly harmless...in the most positive way.

    Even though touted as part of Pratchett's children books series, Wee Free Men is fun reading for adults too! My only way to describe Pratchett is irreverent British humor. A great introduction to up and coming child witch Tiffany Aching and her family, surroundings and life on the Chalk. Also, the great thing about Pratchett books is that you don't have to read them in any specific order - they stand on their own.

    The first book with the witch Tiffany and the Feegals. You will find yourself chuckling when you least expect it. Another favorite

  • Andrea Desimone

    Wonderful book!! It's even more wonderful as narrated by Steven Briggs.

  • Sarah Haque

    Fun fun fun......the wee free men was a joy to read.

    Virtually anything by Terry Pratchett is going to be a hoot, and I can scarcely imagine anyone giving it a better read than Steven Briggs. Each character gets a distinct voice, and his lightning-quick ability to switch from voice to voice makes conversations (and arguments) between characters splendidly easy to follow and a delight to the ear. Having listened to Wee Free Men after reading a number of Pratchett's books (the old-fashioned way: with my eyes, on paper), it seems that Pratchett is at his best with Tiffany Aching. His writing has all the satiric bite that it ever has, but there's more hear in it. We can only hope there will be more Tiffany Aching books than the three so far (Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky, Wintersmith), and that the narrator of Wee Free Men returns.

    I've read all of Terry Pratchett's books and all of them are hilarious. I love the dry wit and humor; well worth reading. It will make most anyone chuckle.

    Absolutely delightful - Pratchett absolutely hits his stride in this one. The narrator couldn't be better. If you love Terry Pratchett - this is a classic. If you haven't read any Pratchett - you should know that he has defined his own genre of Science Fiction/Fantasy/Spoof/Social Commentary. Possibly the next Mark Twain.

    Well this explains the whole hating Roland storyline from A Hat Full of Sky. I love these books. So creative and different from anything I've ever read. Absolutely love these books.

    I laughed out loud so many times my cheeks hurt. This is by far the funniest book I have listened to in a very long time. This is simply a great written story and the reader did an excellent job relating it to the listeners.

    Terry Pratchett's books are laugh-out-loud funny - and audio is by far the best way to experience them. The gentleman who reads them is brilliant. His sense of timing and wide range of accents heighten the humor and drama of the book and help keep the multitude of characters separated in one's mind. That's no mean feat when they have names like "Not so big as Medium Jock but bigger than Wee Jock Jock". I never want to read a Pratchett book again - I only want to listen to them. But I want to listen to them all!

    Funny and Quirky. An engaging story of a young girl believing in herself. Loved the accent of the narrator. I listened to it and then both of my children. I've also listened to "Going Postal" by the same author. GP was raucous and sharp witted. WFM is a gentler story (if something with the Feegles can be gentle...) but still engaging and funny. Good for children and adults alike.

    Delightful, delightful, delightful. Though it's ending felt abrupt and left me wanting more, the journey is delightful, the characters unforgettable and alive -- actually ALIVE! Thank you, Terry Pratchet for another wonderful tale. TVV JR

    I listened to this once by myself, and once with my kids, ages 7 and 9. We loved it! Very funny and engaging.
