Review by Eyejaybee
I have to profess myself somewhat bemused. The announcement last week of the death of Sir Terry Pratchett led to debate among a few of my colleagues about his Discworld novels. There was a rather stunned silence when I remarked that I had never read anything by him. One in particular seemed surprised, almost to the extent of being personally affronted, and kindly lent me a couple which he identified as good starting points for a belated neophyte. I found myself significantly underwhelmed. I might well have enjoyed this book if I had first come to it when I was about eight years old, though I imagine that by the time I had turned nine I would have been rolling my eyes and feeling that I had long left such things behind me. I know Sir Terry brought a lot of entertainment to a lot of people, who will sorely miss him, but I fail completely to see the attraction.The most interesting aspect of this misplaced venture was the fact that my colleague was somehow able to email me the Kindle file for this book, and that I was able to read it on my phone. I feel a bit like a teenager at the turn of the century suddenly stumbling across Napster and racing to fill my iPod.
