I finished the book yesterday and gave it 5 stars.
I was worried as many other reviews stated that this was not up to Pratchett's usual standard. Fortunately I disagreed completely with this claim. I found the story immediately engaging and it continued to keep me hooked until the very last page. I found the humour and wordplay exceptionally enjoyable. Btw I have the Waterstones copy which has an alternative cover and a complimentary bookmark :)

I can't wait... I'm getting this one for xmas, so I'll be reading it a little late.

Lol! I think there's a few of us suffering from that :)

Don't worry Lora - although I got it for xmas, I'm in the middle of another book. I won't be starting this for at least 3 weeks. Maybe time enough to save?

A.L. Butcher (alb2012) | 2 comments I've just read this - not quite on par with some of the others but good nonetheless.

Good plan. I would offer mine, but I can't face selling off my Pratchett books - just keep on overloading those shelves!
