3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing offering, 25 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wit And Wisdom Of Discworld (Kindle Edition)
I love Terry Pratchett. His Discworld books are so well developed and his characters all have such human flaws that you can identify with, and like - even the trolls!

I have read every Discworld novel so far written and I certainly have my favourites. The wit and wisdom contained within each novel is part of its unique charm. I appreciate what a mammoth task Stephen Briggs undertook in compiling this companion. Almost every page in the actual books contains a wry bon mot, a sly dig at the base greed and venality of the society that we, the readers, inhabit. To try to extrapolate those motes of magic would certainly be beyond me. I just recommend the books to family and friends with the passionate avowal that they will enjoy their experience!

However, I am very disappointed with this offering. I purchased this book via my kindle and whether the actual paper version is the same I cannot tell. But my online copy is riddled with typos! On almost every page there is a misprint and error. I was so shocked! One or two I can forgive (but I don't even like that many!), But page after page with so many errors! Unacceptable. This has reduced my pleasure in reading the witticisms of such a clever and gifted author.

Don't buy this companion. Get the original books and enjoy them in their entirety. You will be far more satisfied.
