It's Terry Pratchett's doing, so of course it's fun. It plays around with the idea of time travel in a way that doesn't break my brain too much, which I can accept easily enough to drag me along for the ride. I'm told it's not the first book in the series, though, and it shows: I would probably have cared more if, well, I'd already cared.

I'm not really sure what to say about it. I was quite excited to get a Terry Pratchett book on my course, but now I've got it, I don't think I'm going to write about it. It's clever and sometimes funny, and there's hints at engaging with deeper issues, but most of the time I was a little bored -- probably due to the target audience being quite a bit younger than I am! -- and just reading it because I had to. Which is a bit of a shame because I normally love Terry Pratchett.
