A Hat Full of Sky
A Hat Full of Sky
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Tiffany Aching returns, 8 Sept. 2010
This review is from: A Hat Full of Sky (Paperback)
Think witch contest. Think form vs content. Think whatever you like, because this book is just great. Pratchett keeps getting better with age, I swear. I'm lacking words here, honestly. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different witch, same entertainm,ent, 8 Sept. 2010
It has been quite some time since we have read about witches in Discworld, but they come back with a vengeance. Also introducing the Nac Mac Feegles, who might be the single most interesting race in Discworld. Think of fairies, and then switch polarity! The characters make this book since their maneirisms are so brilliant you forget about the story at certain points. Absolutely brilliant!


Going Postal: A Discworld Novel
Going Postal: A Discworld Novel
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book, 8 Sept. 2010
This is a fresh line inside Discworld, with mostly new characters, but the subject at hand (corporativism and their influence on society) is so good that it makes us forget about that in an instant. The new characters are also very good, and the book always keeps us interested in what's going to happen next. Very appealing. I want more books on the Post line!!!!


Thud!: A Discworld Novel
Thud!: A Discworld Novel
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 8 Sept. 2010
This time Pratchett is aiming at politics and diplomacy. This is the closest any fantasy book can come with our reality. :) Again Sam Vimes, Havelock Vetinari and the Watch guys are at work, and they make a mess of it as usual. This means we have a lot of fun while reading. Buy it!


Monstrous Regiment: A Discworld Novel
Monstrous Regiment: A Discworld Novel
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 8 Sept. 2010
This book makes a huge parody of war, military propaganda and all things war related. The closing of the book is exceptional and I would recommend anyone to pick it up. Worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Discworld titles, 8 Sept. 2010
As you might see from my other reviews, I rarely hand out 5 stars to anything. This one deserves them. I love the Watch line within Discworld and Sam Vimes is probably one of my favorite characters in any book of all time. He returns again, together with Havelock Vetinari, and together they make one of the best stories inside Discworld.


Unseen Academicals: (Discworld Novel 37)
Unseen Academicals: (Discworld Novel 37)
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Mix Football and Discworld..., 8 Sept. 2010
...and you get a terrific novel. With social innuendo going from the Football to the fashion world, this novel shows how alert T Pratchett still is. Great story, great characters (some new, some already known to us, namely the wizard bunch). Various references to football elements nicely inserted, and it rounds off a very good book.


Wintersmith: (Discworld Novel 35) (Discworld Novels)
Wintersmith: (Discworld Novel 35) (Discworld Novels)
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story, excellent characters, 8 Sept. 2010
Once again Terry Pratchett creates a great story, with great characters. Also appearing here are long time favorites like Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax, so this means you can easily find a link to other Discworld novels, and recognize the character traits we have come to love. Very good book.


The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents: (Discworld Novel 28) (Discworld Novels)
The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents: (Discworld Novel 28) (Discworld Novels)
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as usual, 8 Sept. 2010
I just finished reading this, and I feel that although the story is ok and some of the characters are very good (Maurice, Keith, Malicia, Dangerous Beans and Darktan) it is not as good as the other short stories from the Discworld series. I would recomend any of the Tiffany Aching short stories (Wee Free Man, Hat Full of Sky, Wintersmith) instead of this one any day.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just OK, 8 Sept. 2010
This adaptation of the book to the small screen loses most of the things I think are brilliant about the book, namely the comic content. That being said, I think it is difficult to advise someone who isn't a Discworld fanatic to buy it.
