Product Description

Review

"Thought-provoking as well as fun, this is Pratchett at his most philosophical, with characters and situations sprung from ideas and games with language. And it celebrates the joy of the moment." (The Times)

"Nation has profound, subtle and original things to say about the interplay between tradition and knowledge, faith and questioning...It's funny, exciting, lighthearted and, like all the best comedy, very serious." (Guardian)

"Terry Pratchett is an indisputable one-off...Nothing he writes is ever predictable - except that it will always be gloriously readable." (Independent)

"Pratchett's immensely entertaining new young adult novel, manages to be both thought-provoking and sweet... It's a wonderful story, by turns harrowing and triumphant." (New York Times)

Book Description

The text of the play based on Terry Pratchett's Nation, adapted by Mark Ravenhill, released to conincide with a major theatrical production at the National Theatre, London

Format: Kindle Edition
A great follower of the disk world series, I was intreagued by this deviation to see if it may lead to another humerous escapade outside of the confines of the world of weird witches and golums.

In a word, yes, it does, but not in particularly good way.

Gone is the enjoyable humour, replaced by a more restrained take on nature and it's deities.

It's a readable story but, if like me, you're a deciple of Discworld you must remove all expectations normally associated with the author and read with an open mind.

There is little humour to be found but there is a certain power to the tale that makes for passable reading, just don't expect to be giggling. It's not THAT sort of tale.
