Eric: (Discworld Novel 9)

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
July 2022
3 hours 58 minutes
Brought to you by Penguin.

The audiobook of Eric is read by Colin Morgan (Merlin; Testament of Youth; Belfast). 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.

Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker. Pity he's not very good at it.

All he wants is his three wishes granted. Nothing fancy - to be immortal, rule the world, have the most beautiful woman in the world fall madly in love with him, the usual stuff.

But instead of a tractable demon, he calls up Rincewind, probably the most incompetent wizard in the universe, and the extremely intractable and hostile form of travel accessory known as the Luggage.

With them on his side, Eric's in for a ride through space and time that is bound to make him wish (quite fervently) again - this time that he'd never been born.

Eric is the fourth book in the Wizards 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.

Loved the book, really enjoying the series. My only gripe is with audiobooks itself: why do I have to pay the same amount for a credit for a book that is 3 hours long compared with one that is 40+ hours long?! This book series has consistently come up with ERROR messages when downloading unabridged versions - so I've had to instead listen to books that are 3 hours of a 9 hour story, and then I'm done with them within 2-3 days!?. Now I'm waiting until next month to do the same thing over again!? That really sucks, and I've lost my enthusiasm for audiobooks so that I dont' lose too much money buying audiobooks multiple times per month when I subscribe to a service like this. I get it, I could pick a different book series, but as a light reader who has found a new author and book series that I really want to sink my teeth into (have now read 5 of 40+ books in this series so long way to go)… its frustrating. I've written about this before to no answer. Ball is in your court,
