    This is a tricky book for me to review For one thing, it s hard for me to view this book as a thing unto itself Anyone who knows anything about my reading habits knows that I m a huge fan of Terry Pratchett Of all his books, Thud is perhaps my favorite And this book is a follow up to that one Not exactly a se

  2. Shelley Shelley says:

    I was troubled while reading this book Where were the characters I loved I could see them there on the page Vetinari, Moist, Adora belle etc but their names could have been interchangeable Their personalities were a blur I recognise Sir Terry s struggle with his health, but I get the distinct impression that someone

    OK, 4.6 rounded up I ve seen a lot of reviews here that panned this book but seemed to be doing so mostly because it wasn t what they wanted it to be Too little of this, too much of that Pfui Authors get to write whatever they want To me, this one s about Moist and the Discworld growing up, maturing And I suspect it s a wi

    A young man invents the steam engine and the train and railroad soon follow Lord Vetinari feels the winds of change blowing and puts Moist von Lipwig in charge of the burgeoning railway industry But not everyone likes the idea of progressHere we are, the 40th Discworld book Even after 40 books, I forget how clever Terry Pratchett

    The penultimate novel in the Discworld series.Truth be told, I very much enjoyed our little adventure with Moist von Lipwig, he of the scandalous and dangerous success, literally coming from the gallows a few books back to become an efficacious leader of the post office, the mint and the bank But throughout the book, there was always th

    Terry Pratchett is a writer with a timebomb ticking in his head Although this is common knowledge, you have to be a very close reader to notice the strain this exerts on him Pratchett has written his very best work in the period just before his embuggerance Monstruous regiment, the wee free men trilogy notice here I do not include I shall wear

    I couldn t have imagined that a day would come when this is to be said of Sir Pratchett, but sadly, I must say that he disappoints with this one All the usual ingredients are present, the City Watch, the Tyrant, the Turtle, the rolls, dwarfs and goblins, as are the smart alecy quips and puns and double entendres, but, Where is the Plot, the Enticing

  8. Belinda Lewis Belinda Lewis says:

    I honestly didn t even finish this book It was just so dreadfully boring I made it about 80% through and I only got that far because I love Terry Pratchett and wanted to persevere and then just gave up The dialogue is terrible, the narrative lacks any kind of rhythm its just and then and then and then and then and worst of all the characters are unrecogniza

    My husband Simon and I were taking the train into Chicago to see a dance performance The journey is about 1 hour, 20 minutes and I wasn t sure we could sustain a conversation that long having been married now for 34 years, so, I racked my brain for an audiobook we could enjoy together I have a widget Simon calls a splitter which I plug into my iPod and it enables

    While some people say that this book did not deliver on the same level of expectation as Pratchett s earlier works, it is my opinion that this book is so muchdeveloped and gripping than his other books The humour that is displayed still follows the same structure of parody.Personally, I loved the whole stories of Moist, and found that there was no Pratchett book that I l
