Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought he'd come to the mountain kingdom of Lancre for a simple little religious ceremony. Now he's caught between vampires and witches, and he's not sure there is a right side.
There are the witches: young Agnes, who is really in two minds everything; Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies; Nanny Ogg, who is far too knowing; and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble.
And the vampires are intelligent with fancy waistcoats and lots of style. They're out of the casket and want a bite of the future.

great book, great audiobook, faulty audiobook
I love Pratchett, I love Carpe Jugulum, and I am a pretty big fan of this audiobook overall, even though I prefer Stephen Briggs to Nigel Planer.
HOWEVER. This audiobook has several chapters that play out of order, ruining the book. I have complained about this to iTunes. Other people are aware of the problem (see reviews of the redone version of the audiobook at Audible). iTunes is selling the updated version of the audiobook as well as this one. So, why is this (more expensive, longer running time (the other version is still unabridged, no worries)) version still being sold in the iTunes store?
Love the Book, but not this version!
This is one of my favorite discworld novels, but this version cuts out several pages of the book! I purchased a different version of this audiobook before from iTunes and it was complete, but it was deleted from our account somehow and iTunes refused to add it back because it was an outdated version. So I spent the $25.95 to purchase this version and I am NOT happy that a good chunk of the book is missing!!! I would have bought it on audible if it was available to purchase because iTunes has left a bad taste in my mouth over these audiobook 'mishaps'. Don't waste your money on this. It's not worth it. The book is amazing, but this audiobook version is far from it simply because of so much missing content!
Big chunks of the books were left out
The novel is excellent and the narration is great but they left out big chunks of the story and it really screws up the story. They advertise it as "unabridged" but that's a lie.
