Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go going when you drop them. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else. The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too. As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed for ever. Because the thing about football - the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football.

I was immensely satisfied with this book/audiobook (which to choose, fabulous narration or seeing the spelling and quirky fonts? both is best) then I see that true aficionados of discworld don't necessarily rank unseen academicals as among the best. I am intrigued enough to read more pratchett books. the way he toys with language reminds me of p.g. wodehouse and monty python.

More irreverent fun from Terry Pratchett. On audio the reader is very good, using different accents and voices, which makes it easier to keep the many characters straight.

This is one of the best read audio books I have listened to.
The reader make the characters come alive.
Very funny and witty.
Mr. Pratchett at his best.
