Product Description

Review

"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)

Book Description

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.

My cousin is a massive Terry Pratchett fan and has pretty much all of the books he has written including the recent ones with Stephen Baxendale but for some reason he hadn't got this set and so I bought it for him for his Birthday recently and once again another brilliant book by Terry Pratchett. My cousin may be slightly biased of course with him having read and owning most of Terry's books but considering the mans genius (Terry) I don't think that's the case. Very good book and a bonus that it is three books in one and my cousin has advised that this is one of the better series of Terry's that he has read so a definite thumbs up.

This is a wonderful, eloquently written work, by Discworld author Terry Pratchett. It's one of those books, that when you finish, you sigh softly, and recall all the great, and bad times the characters have had. If you have so much as a morsel of imagination, this book will leave with a faint, lingering feeling, that somewhere, in your house, a Nome is watching you from behind a crack in the wall... This isn't a bad feeling, just a pleasant, happy feeling, something you probably wouldn't have felt since you were six, when Santa Clause was real.

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.

My ten year old and I read this to each other - he did a chapter then so did I. The humour is pitched at the level where he can understand and really appreciate it; often revolving around the nomes' (sic) very literal interpretation of meanings, such as a sign reading 'road works', which they see as superfluous as how can a road not work? This sort of thing really amuses children of this age and they are so pleased when they understand word play. He also understood and agreed with the meaning of various morals along the way. The language was good - construction not too complex for him to read aloud and he learned the meanings of the odd new word.

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).

Perhaps I'm prejudice in my affesction for this little trilogy. They were the books that first convinced a girl who struggled to read that actually stories had to be worth the effort. They also taught me that it was OK to laugh at religion. As a vicars daughter this proved invaluable.

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.

Both myself and my 11 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed reading this. It was dispatched quickly and in good condition. I just wish there were more books in the series! Typical quirky Terry pratchet and suitable for readers of all ages (well 7/8 upwards anyway!).

I bought this for my 11 year old, who's a bit young for 'Discworld'. I first read these myself as an adult and enjoyed them -my 11 year old says 'they are perfect for young kids as they have lots of action and adventure packed in' -he certainly laughed out loud plenty while reading them!

These books were recommended to me for my daughter to read.
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.

The trilogy is designed for a younger readership much like his 'Jonny and' series but as with all of Terry Pratchett books it is still great reading. A bit like a pantomime where a lot of the diologue is on two levels - one level for children and the other adults. This is a great read and very funny and I would recommend it to all ages
