"As always, [Terry Pratchett] is head and shoulders above even the best of the rest. He is screamingly funny. He is wise. He has style . . . Splendid" (Daily Telegraph)
"Terry Pratchett once again succeeds in combining a subtle blend of humour, wisdom and naive simplicity" (The School Librarian)
Hilariously inventive, marvellously witty and highly original, THE BROMELIAD is a magnificent trilogy of tales about a race of little people struggling to survive in a world full of humans. Contains Truckers, Diggers and Wings.See all Product Description

Read this book, not with the idea that it will have you rolling on your back, stifling your laughter with a fist. Don't expect to be left, sobbing uncontrollable, as you crawl through the last pages of the book. As I said before, this story is a comfortable, cosy sigh. It's something to treasure. Something to come back to on those cold, dark nights. Something to read, remember and recall as you trundle along your life.
We both enjoyed it thoroughly and he wants to read more Terry Prachett books whilst waiting for the latest Charlie Higson to come out in paperback (if you haven't tried the young Bond books, do - they are very good indeed, best we have read of that genre of exciting adventure stories).
Having lent the books to everyone I knew, and consequently lost my copies I re-purchased them. Reading as an adult I was not dissappointed. The humour is less subtle then in the discworld novels, but I think they are funnier. The characters are beautiful and the story compelling. I was pleasently surprised to find that I loved it as much as an adult. Each of the three books feels fresh and interesting. Well worth purchasing.
Neither myself or my daughter have read any Terry Pratchett before and the writing style is definitely one to get your head around. You will definitely read then re-read and possibly re-read again if you are new to these like us.
So far we are still on 'Truckers'. The reason being, although so far this is a good book we do spend a lot of time discussing what we have read as Terry's style is certainly original. This is not a bad thing (I hated literature at school) as it is keeping the attention span and raising questions about the story and we are talking a lot about the book and the descriptive content and what it means.
I originally thought the books were too old for her (she is 8) but she is always wanting to read this together as she is enjoying the story. It's the way it's wrote that makes it hard (the same as when you first read an Irvine Welsh novel. You have to change your mindset to the authors humour to understand how it is written).
That being said, I think this is a great introduction to Pratchetts works and it will be the start of a long journey we will both take together in to the imagination of what is a highly respected author.
