    Most of us grew up having always known when to touch wood or cross our fingers, and what happens when a princess kisses a frog or a boy pulls a sword from a stone, yet sadly some of these things are beginning to be forgotten. Legends, myths, and fairy tales: Our world is made up of the stories we told ourselves about where we came from and how we got here. It is the same on Discworld, except that beings, which on Earth are creatures of the imagination - like vampires, trolls, witches and, possibly, gods - are real, alive and, in some cases kicking, on the Disc.

    William Mast says: "Not Discworld really, mostly earth folklore"

    Would you try another book from Terry Pratchett and Jacqueline Simpson and/or Michael Fenton Stevens?

    Possibly, but not because of this book.


    What was most disappointing about Terry Pratchett and Jacqueline Simpson ’s story?

    The title says "The Folklore of Discworld: Legends, Myths, and Customs from the Discworld with Helpful Hints from Planet Earth", not "hints from earth, but hints from Discworld.


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

    Anger. Right from the start, the book was not what I thought it was. Straight up wanted to cancel my account because Audible suggested this title to me. Didn't of course, it was my own fault to purchase this book based on the title. Couldn't find any user review by use of the app. Critics gave it a great review. Shows it wasn't read. (IMHO)


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not based on Discworld but on the similarities of Earth and Discworld, Earth being the main point of the folklore. There is no "hint" of Earth, it is a hint of Discworld. Was a waste of time for me. If the title was correct, I think I would have at least enjoyed it. Sorry, wish I had something good to say. It's no where near Larry Nivens and I know it isn't supposed to be, but come on. If you use the title, write it as the title suggests.
