    From Snuff: "Vimes looked at the cover. The title was The World of Poo. When his wife was out of eyeshot he carefully leafed through it. Well, okay, you had to accept that the world had moved on and these days’ fairy stories were probably not going to be about twinkly little things with wings. As he turned page after page, it dawned on him that whomever had written this book, they certainly knew what would make kids like Young Sam laugh until they were nearly sick. The bit about sailing down the river almost made him smile.

    Jacobus says: "Its about Pooh without an h, but with humor"
    "Pratchett Doesn't Do It This Time"

    What would have made The World of Poo better?

    A plot worthy of the author. Terry Pratchett is much better than this.


    What was most disappointing about Terry Pratchett’s story?

    This listen was flat, no plot, no no thought, no challange for the mind. A little poo is funny, a lot of poo is just poo over and over. Half star anyone?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She tried her best, but she could not save this piece of poo.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I love Terry Pratchett's books. This book grew out of Snuff as a plot device, however on its own it is just sad.


    Any additional comments?

    I hoped this would be like Where's My Cow, something to share with my grandson. Just too much poo - even for his eight year old mind, and WAY too much for my 60 year old mind. I'll recommend Terry Pratchett's books to anyone, that is except this one.
