5.0 out of 5 stars Not An Elephant in Sight.., 10 Sep 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nation (Hardcover)
I've had this book on order for months - and I rushed home to rip open the package and get reading when it arrived from Amazon.
And there was no Discworld.. No turtle, no elephants, no witches, no dwarves - nothing - nothing but Terry and his beautiful, perceptive way of understanding and writing about human nature, life, the universe and everything..
I get the feeling that what he has gifted us with, this time, was too important to be hidden cunningly among the wonderful characters and humour of the discworld series. Although the Tiffany Aching books are pretty special, and give my favourite (Small Gods) a run for its money..

What Terry Pratchett doesn't know about people, quantum physics and spiritual philosophy isn't worth knowing.. And the way he engages us, and leads us through both his stories, and the breadth and depth of life and being human, in this place - and at this time - speaks of both love and poetry. This is a beautiful book - and it was worth going in to work half asleep - because I couldn't put it down and get myself off to bed until I'd finished it. Highly recommended.

'What Terry Pratchett doesn't know about people, quantum physics and spiritual philosophy isn't worth knowing.' - I love Terry big time, but my friend, that is one of the dumbest and most short-sighted statements I have heard in a long time. Off the top of my head I just wonder what the Buddha would say to that. He'd probably have a gentle little chuckle, and go back to enjoying profound external peace.
