I always look forward to a new Pratchett book. This one is much less than a good effort. It is a random collecton of parts of old Pratchett books stitiched together with stories from earth. To say that it has any narrative value at all would be an exaggeration. Of DODGER, this was a terrible disappointment. Would recommend it none.
They could have put the book into a narrative stream and at least made stories out of the folklore and myths of the Discworld.
Nice narration, I would listen to other books he reads.
All of the except Death.
Hope that this book does not indicate a trend in Terry Pratchett's work.
This book, and the followup, Devil's Elixer, both have fine basic ideas. The flashbacks in this book are good, but the modern section seems to be devoted to sadistic violence and bloodshed. It is the same in the Devil's Elixer. If you don't mind graphic and senseless violence, you will like this book better than I.
No. The first one in the series was acceptable, but the second and third entries in the series are not. There is too much graphic and unnecessary violence.
I would limit the descriptions of violence and bloodshed. The author seems to take a sadistic pleasure in detailing this.
From the way this book was written, someone has to pay to have it printed. The writting reminds me of the miserable ramblings of a tween with a
jejune iminagination. The reader is even worse.
I suspect that there are worse books in the library, but you would have to look hard to find it.
