5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Brilliance for all ages, 7 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Bromeliad Trilogy: Truckers - Diggers - Wings (Hardcover)
When I first started reading the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett, my Dad thought it was all a load of rubbish and "you wouldn't catch him reading Pratchett." What is it they say about famous last words? Then on a long journey with a friend, he listened to the "Truckers" audio cassette (narrated brilliantly by Tony Robinson), and then had to get the Bromeliad. From there he's gone onto read every Discworld novel, nearly as quickly as me! The Bromeliad is quite simply put, a superbly witty and skilfully written collection, whether for the younger reader who sees it as a story about the "wee folk" or for the older, who can see the parallels with real life, and understand the things that confuse the nomes (such as "and Arnold Bros (est. 1905) put up signs saying "Dogs and Pushchairs must be carried on the escaltors"." And Arnold Bros (est. 1905) waxed wroth, for some people used the escalators carrying neither dog, nor pushchair. "Surely," said the nomes, "humans are stupid, and understand nothing about the world."
