I'm currently re-reading it again but it's still not as good as his other, especially earielr, novels.
Not big fan of mags advantures on Mono Island but Rincewind parts made my day. The storyline sometimes gets chaotic and seems to be not so well thought. However, this book has some special feel to it. You can really tell that he wrote it under impression of Australia. And it made me want to visit this interesting country too.
The language is perfect, as always, and the gags are hilarious as usual. Still not so good as in previous books, if it was my first, I'd probably love it. Unfortunately it's not.
