it was ok

I’m nearly positive that everyone has been in the horrible (awkward/nerve-wracking/uncomfortable) social situation where everyone but you is laughing uproariously at a joke that you just can’t fathom why it would tickle anyone’s funny bone.
This is exactly how this book made me feel; hard for me to say, being a Pratchett fan and generally finding his books satirical hilarity.
It took me three tries to finally read this entire book; reason being, it doesn’t pick up until around page 165 – when faerie tales start coming true in typical Pratchett zany-ness. Even then, the dialogue is almost constant (rarely making sense) and leaving little room for plot. As a review in the front page of the book says, “You can never pick up all the jokes he makes in one reading”. Sadly, this book left me never wanting to pick it up again. Alas, I’ll never “pick up” on all those (possibly hilarious/possibly just as horrendous as I thought) jokes.
