Recommended for: Mostly those who have read Interesting Times.
Read from October 01 to 07, 2011

My only complaint is that it felt just a bit rushed. But then again, you could also think of it like this: the book isn't meant to be a complete story, but rather the end of a legend. There were bits that made me cry, and others that made me laugh.

I've always loved the Silver Horde. I love how they defy my expectations of what heroes ought to be, yet surpass them at the same time. When al other heroes have given up, they keep fighting 'cause it's all they've ever done.

I would definitely say this is the perfect last adventure for them.

Then there's Rincewind, a very reluctant hero, who spends most of his time running away from adventure.

All things considered, a fantastic book, perhaps not my favorite, but nonetheless fantastic.
