Only if the friend were a science geek that had a penchant for history.
Others have compared it to the Disappearing Spoon, but I find this to be slightly more based upon the method and history of the scientist than of the quaint anecdotal stories from the evolution of the Periodic table.
I don't believe so.
It was, overall. I would advise others to make the effort to wade through some of the several lagging portions of the story.
This was an amazing study of folklore and of all os us in a comically Pratcehettesque manner. The study of the isms of Diskworld in juxtaposition of our own human beliefs of the things we all know but don't understand.
Yes, I would have Stephen Briggs read anything!!
The melding of so many literary references made the story almost a "where's the character" adventure at the same time.
Yes, Dodger was definitely one that was not purposed for my daily drive, I found myself happy of traffic!!
This story dragged in all aspects. It easily had five or six reasonable ending points. The action sequences were all entirely contrived and exceptionally trite overall. We bought this for a family road trip, by an hour and half in to it the kids were begging to turn it off, and I joined the chorus another forty-five minutes in. My wife held strong and followed through, we all regret that decision and wish we could just get our several hours back from Peter and the Pirates.
No, absolutely not.
Wonderfully richly voiced
Disappointment after disapointment
