5.0 out of 5 stars Equal parts story and jokes., 31 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Equal Rites: A Discworld Novel: 3 (Paperback)
I think this just might be the most atmospheric of all the Discworld books. The description of rural life in the town of Bad Ass really evokes the sounds, smells and tastes of the forest. And the allegorical narrative - for Unseen University read Oxford & Cambridge in the first half of the 19th century - handles the whole issue of sexism rather well. Esk is a wonderful character that Pratchett has yet to repeat, at least on Discworld, a child with the wit and naked intelligence to cut right through the hypocrisy and nonsense of the adult world. A wonderful book that is the very definition of Intelligent Fantasy.
