One of Terry Pratchett’s best.
I don’t often gush for a book, but this one was very good. Pratchett’s 2004 Discworld story Hat Full of Sky (and second featuring Tiffany Aching and her friends the pictsies – the Nac Mac Feegle wee free men) was a joy to read.
I’d like to see this made into a film ju...

This is technically a young adult book (and yes, I do read grown-up books, I just went on a bit of a YA tear after my Powell’s extravaganza), but the only reason for so labeling it is that the main character is a teenager. It is hard to explain how great this book is if you haven’t read any Pratc...

Dedicated to the memory of Sir Terry Pratchett, who passed away soon after I started reading the book.
I have made, over the past twenty years, many friends among the inhabitants of the wacky disc-shaped world sailing through space on the backs of four elephants, carried in their turn by a giant t...

Terry Pratchett favori yazarlarımdan biri ve her Diskdünya kitabını bitirdiğimde neden favorim olduğunu tarif etmek için farklı bir neden buluyorum.
İnceleme yazmaya çalıştım bir on dakika, yazıp yazıp sildim. Söylenebilecek o kadar şey var ki kitap ve kitabın yaptığı şeyi ne kadar iyi yaptığı ha...

I can not seem to convince anyone to try Discworld.
Damndest thing, I would think that his great stories, great insight, and amazing humor would be an easy sell, but I can't convince most readers I know to so much as read the first page in my copy of "The Colour of Magic," even if they're voraciou...

For a children’s book it has more complexity than I would've expected. I remember after reading Tiffany Aching’s first book I thought it was just so strange and didn't get what was going on at the end. The climax in this one had a similar sort of the thing going but I understood it better this t...

Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma: which reading list to follow it up with? Variety is the spice of life, so I’ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously. This book falls into my LOCUS Y-A list.
I think I’ll always have a soft-spot fo...
