More boring than funny
on 3 June 2016
I can't believe how many five star reviews this book has! I was expecting laugh out loud funny and this is about as far away from that as I can imagine for an attempted comedy. There is to be fair the occasional mildly amusing moment (hence the 2 stars and not 1) but in general I just found it incredibly boring and monotonous and found myself hoping that it would get funnier soon. But by the time I was 70% through and the hilarious moments that the 5 star reviewers rave about had still not come, I gave up hope and just wished it would end sooner rather than later.
A big disappointment for my first Pratchett book, if the 1st Discworld book is no better I'll give up with this author.
