Doesn't feel like a final draft,
This review is from: Snuff (Discworld) (Mass Market Paperback)
Probably the least satisfying of Pratchett's many, many books. He's produced better since, as well as before, this one.
There's an entertaining story in there but it's hidden behind lots of superfluous verbiage and at times you have to put it down to gather the energy and inclination to find out what happens next. It really feels like an early draft. Lots of ideas have been thrown in, the story-line wanders all over the place and there's too much 'top of the head' dialogue that needs to be trimmed down. Plus all the explanations of items relating to other books, which haven't been seen as necessary in other books.
This one really cries out for proper editing and then reissuing.
