Dean J. (deanjksmith) | 23 comments I’m always so optimistic about the fact that I’m going to hit a 50 book goal and I haven’t been able to hit it yet in my past couple of years on Goodreads. Here’s hoping next year is a winner!

Books read [2/50]:
January 1st - January 3rd: The Colour Of Magic
January 4th - January 14th: The Painted Veil

★★★★★

'My name is immaterial,' she said.
'That's a pretty name,' said Rincewind.


I'm honestly annoyed at myself for not starting this series sooner, because I don't think I've ever laughed more at a piece of fiction. It's absolutely my sense of humour and I relate to Rincewind so much that it's honestly a little scary. (view spoiler)

If I wasn't taking part in a reading challenge, I'd read this book again immediately.

The Painted Veil

Rating:
★★★☆☆

It took me a little while to get into it because I just found Kitty to be so absolutely vapid that it was somewhat unbearable. But she went through a lot of character development, and that made it a lot easier to actually get through the book.

The length of the book itself almost made it seem like things progressed incredibly quickly, and I was a little shocked that everything unfolded at the speed with which it did. I don't know if it's because I've read books recently that have been so long and felt like things were being drawn out unnecessarily. Either way, I was at the same time pleased it wasn't overly drawn out but also left feeling like everything was a little rushed.
