Jamie Reviews: Terry Pratchett – Snuff

February 23rd, 2012

As the sand pours through Sir Terry Pratchett’s gilded hourglass I find myself again honoured to be able to review his latest work of craft; Snuff.

    I was thrilled to receive my copy of “Snuff”, a gift from my son. As usual, Sir Terry swept me away into his universe and I was supremely satisfied to once again slip away from reality for a time.
