4.0 out of 5 stars Below average Pratchett, but that's still briliant, 24 Aug 2004
This review is from: Death's Domain: A Discworld Mapp (Paperback)
It's pretty good. I mean, Kidby's a brilliant artist, and getting the all-the-colours-of-black colour scheme to work at all should have earned him a medal of some sort.
I agree with others that maybe it's lacking a bit in actual information. But since *all* the rooms in the house are infinite, I can't imagine how a floor plan would work. Much like the map in A Tourist's Guide to Lancre, this is just for looking at and marveling. Every time I look at it I notice something else.
And yeah, maybe it doesn't look exactly the way I visualised the Domain either, but Terry had final say on this, and wrote the acompanying booklet, so I'm prepared to accept that he knows what it looks like better than I do 8-).
The booklet... well, okay, it doesn't really tell us anything about Death we don't already know. But the description of why his house looks like it does, or his attempts to understand mazes or golf, give a better insight into what we already know, I think.
Basically, not the best Practchett's ever written, but still better than most of the stuff out there and linked to possibly one of the best Kidby's ever painted.
