The problems with reading so much Pratchett (the summer after eighth grade, I went to the library every three days and read one Terry Pratchett, one Lillian Jackson Braun, and one other book) are that they start to blend together after awhile, the ones you read early will always feel like the best even if they might not technically be, and that singing feeling that you get as he makes revelations and wraps everything up at the end doesn't appear for every book.

That said, any Pratchett is better than a lot of other books, the wizards are entertaining as usual, and I liked seeing what has become of Ponder Stibbons lately. I would have liked for the religion angle to be looked at with a bit more vigor; I thought it was kind of sketched out and left to hang. Also the book made me hungry for pie.

Can we have a Witches book next? We haven't had a Witches book since Carpe Jugulum, if you don't count the Tiffany Aching set, none of which after The Wee Free Men I have been able to track down.
