Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

There are strange goings-on at the Opera House in Ankh-Morpork. A ghost in a white mask is murdering, well, quite a lot of people, and two witches (it really isn't wise to call them "meddling, interfering old baggages"), or perhaps three, take a hand in unravelling the mystery. Fans of the popular Discworld series will be happy to see some old friends again in Maskerade, the 18th novel in the series.

Pressestimmen

I liked this book, but can see where everyone might not. First off the basic plot is that Perdita X Nitt (nee Agnes Nitt) Has decided to go to the big city to seek her fortune as a singer. She has a singular talent, however of being able to accompany herself. She auditions at the Opera House in Ankh Morpork and is hired along with the beautiful Christine who can sing only passably but has certain other assets (as does her father - a benefactor of the opera) which the new owner find pleasant to comtemplate.
In the meantime Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax have decided they need a 3rd witch and Agnes would do. The decide to go to the city to just "check up" on her. They become embroiled in the "ghost of the Opera" legend and succeed in thwarting an evil plot while having a great deal of fun with Nanny Ogg's hard earned money. Just remember it ends like most opera.
I liked this novel, but then I love opera. I also have seen almost every variation of the Phantom of the Opera ever made (except the musical). The problem is that for some of the humor, the reader must have some knowledge of Opera and it's performers to understand the parody. While I love it, I understand that it is not for everyone. There is enough humor for the non afficiando not everyone will neccesarily find it hilarious.

This is truly one of the best Discworld books I've ever read. It's funny, it's intresting, and it's a very good satire on "The Phantom of the Opera". However, it's on the thin line between the really good discworld books (Intresting Times, Feet of Clay), and the excellent books (Carpe Jugulum, Moving Pictures)...
It's hard to pinpoint exactly what's missing here. That's why it's on the line (I would've given it 4.5 stars if I could...). It's extremely funny, but not as funny as Mort... It's ideas are quite deep, but don't run as deep as Carpe Jugulum's... So, in the end, it's not the greatest Discworld book, but if I would've made a 'top five list', it would've certainly be one of them...

First I have to admit two things:
1: I'm a Terry Pratchett fanatic (I almost choked once laughing on the bus reading Guards!Guards!)
2: I have always loved opera more than anything (exept Pratchett's books).
So I am not really what you might call impartial. Nevertheless:
This may not be Pratchett's best book (that's Whyrd Sisters), but it's one of the best. Who cares if the basic story is well known? So are Macbeth, Hamlet, A Midsummernight's Dream, Cinderella, Dracula, Father Christmas, etc..
What matters is what you make of it. And here Pratchett does what he does best: He takes a well known story or myth and turns it around until it makes sense again. And there is one thing he avoids completely: He does not abuse the story as an excuse for sorry jokes, which would have been very easy. The jokes are always a necessary part of the story.
And he obviously likes his charakters as much as the reader does.
Just one point of criticism: The author obviously is not a born opera lover - otherwise he might have given Agnes Nitt the chance to really become an opera Diva. Pity for her, good for the readers of "Carpe Jugulum".

I was shocked by the previous review. Too much about the witches and not enough Phantom? There can NEVER be too much about the witches, they are some of the greatest characters ever, on or off the Disc. It is proper and fitting that the Phantom should take a backseat to the formidable Granny and Nanny, I'm sure they wouldn't have it any other way.

Opera with all its stereotypes: a diva, a star tenor, a ghost... plus three witches, of course. Drama ensues, with murder and mayhem, rooftop chases and all the while the show must go on.

Terry Pratchett delivers another hilarious and pointy comedy that picks up on all opera stereotypes and myths.

This is one of Terry Pratchett's best books with the lovable characters from the Discworld series. Back for another round of side-splitting comedy is Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax. Any true fan must read this book. You don't want to be left behind when you're friends are giving you advice from the 'Joye of Cooking'.
The dubious duo head off to Ankh-Morpork to collect on moneys that are owed to Nanny for her cook book with 'innuendos'. While there, they run into Agnes Nitt(which isn't hard considering her size), and embark on a wonderful adventure at the Ankh-Morpork Opera House that is a sure-fire spoof of the classic story, "The Phantom of the Opera".

This book was my first exposure to Discworld and I have since returned many times. This ultra funny parody of phantom had drowning in mirth with it's both obvious and subtle humor. It is advantageous to have seen the play first because it makes the parody all the more funnier, and understandable. Even with out seeing the play it is a good book to read. Serious die hard opera fans may be offedended

Pratchett is one of the few authors who can reduce me to the undignified state of outright giggling, and he's done it again. He uses both old gags (The Lancre Coven and orang-utan Librarian) and new (OPERA!). Even though I kind of like opera, I found Pratchett's satire and wit quite funny. This book grabs you by the collar and swirls you through different characters lives and plots, leaving a burning desire to read more of this zany world. It may leave you, as it left me, with the wonder of how a prop horse can have a "humorous trapdoor," but I can still give you only one suggestion: Read Maskerade!!!!!
