it was amazing

Quite frankly, I see no reason why I should ever find myself in conversation with someone who HASN"T read this trilogy.....go read it!
An absolute must-have for children aged 12-13, but immensely enjoyable at all ages, loaded with Pratchett's ever so deceptive wisdom, and precisely observed human folly.

The story revolves around a civilisation of Nomes that have lived for generations in a department store, who do not believe that anything exists outside the store 'world'. But one Nome learns that the store is soon to be demolished, and he must convince these people that

a) The world is ending

b) They aren't as important as they think

c) They can all survive if they make some sacrifices and hard choices

A satisfying read on so many levels - if you are not moved by the plight of the tree frogs in the final book, then you very probably are a horrible person.
