I Shall Wear Midnight | [Terry Pratchett]

I Shall Wear Midnight

Tiffany Aching has spent years studying with senior witches, and now she is on her own. As the witch of the Chalk, she performs the bits of witchcraft that aren't sparkly, aren't fun, don't involve any kind of wand, and that people seldom ever hear about: She does the unglamorous work of caring for the needy. But someone - or something - is igniting fear, inculcating dark thoughts and angry murmurs against witches.

Publisher's Summary

It starts with whispers.

Then someone picks up a stone.

Finally, the fires begin.

When people turn on witches, the innocents suffer. . . .

Tiffany Aching has spent years studying with senior witches, and now she is on her own. As the witch of the Chalk, she performs the bits of witchcraft that aren't sparkly, aren't fun, don't involve any kind of wand, and that people seldom ever hear about: She does the unglamorous work of caring for the needy.

But someone - or something - is igniting fear, inculcating dark thoughts and angry murmurs against witches. Aided by her tiny blue allies, the Wee Free Men, Tiffany must find the source of this unrest and defeat the evil at its root - before it takes her life. Because if Tiffany falls, the whole Chalk falls with her.

Chilling drama combines with laugh-out-loud humor and searing insight as beloved and bestselling author Terry Pratchett tells the high-stakes story of a young witch who stands in the gap between good and evil.

    "His best book."

    I admit to some hesitation as I started the book ??? knowing how his brilliant mind is slowly being eaten away as I write this ??? but after just a few paragraphs the doubt disappeared.

    In short, I think this might be his best book ever. Starting on a very dark note he has the now familiar young witch deal with the hidden ugly side of village life. The story grows to embrace threads that were present from the very first book in the series (the old woman, outcast by the local people) and uses it to talk about the fear of the unknown and how outside forces can use this to break us apart.

    I'm sure everybody will read something different into what the dark man represents, but I don't think there is an exact target here; Pratchett is just warning us to be vigilant.

    The puns and obscure jokes are as thick as ever. It will take many passes through this text for me to get even half of them (as it should be). Even if he never writes another book (but please please do if possible) I am happy. I hope that Terry Pratchett gets to spend his endless summer running through the fields as a happy little boy once he passes through the door that mortals only pass once.

    "Pleasant Surprise"

    I was disappointed when I first listened to this book and it was announced that it was from Audible Children. I am glad I continued to listen because it was a funny and entertaining listen. My husband hates when I read a book or listen to my IPod and I laugh out loud so I have to turn my laugh into a cough. While I was listening to this book he actually asked me if I was coming down with a cold! Also, after finishing I immediately downloaded the previous books in the series and enjoyed them as well. If you have a sense of humor this series will keep you entertained.

    "A young adult novel"

    I didn't recognized until I had been listening that this is a follow up to "A Hat Full of Sky" which was aimed at young adults (as the protagonist is only 16). But like all Terry Pratchett novels it is quite fun and full of interesting characters and his rather fun quirky takes on "what everyone knows." Very enjoyable..
