PJSM don't seem to have posted mine yet anyway. Checked my order status this morning.
Luckily picked up a copy on friday and have to say the book is fantastic.
Won't give anything away here but its a definite step up from wintersmith. Lost a lot of sleep due to the books unputdownability.
All round two thumbs up fantastic family fun.. :D :D :D :D :D

Hi I´m a new one :D

Must say that "I will wear midnight" was the best book soo far.
Read it through yesterday and it was great, dark, but thoughtful!

Best regards

Hello again - my newish job has kept me away from a lot of net based stuff as after spending hours staring at screens writing emails and marking work, the novelty of the net has worn thin.
I'm glad to be back among you all.

What a great book - I got one of the last half-price copies from Smiths in Darlo last week. I've been spinning it out as I didn't want to say goodbye to Tiff and the Feegles. What was enormously cheering was the amount it had clearly outsold T. Blair's biography by, and he used to be my MP.

I just posted a review on a well known site where nobody else had mentioned one thing that struck me very forcibly - the intrusion of two songs from Roundworld to Discworld. The Larks They Sang Melodious is one of the great English chorus folk songs.

I sang along with it at our live music club one night and it was absolutely magical - it was literally one of those moments you know you will never forget. We had some cracking voices in the audience - fellow singers from the open mic night - and they just took the singing up to a new plane, everyone raised their game. It sounded absolutely wonderful.

As Nanny Ogg rightly said, some know it as 'Pleasant and Delightful'.
Terry must love this song very much to have let it enter Discworld.
I'm not going to post any spoilers. I'm going to read the book again though. And then Wintersmith. I gave away my copy of The Wee Free Men so I'll have to buy another one of those. When ISWM comes out in paperback I'll give a whole set to my granddaughter - she's 9 and possibly still a bit young for Tiffany just yet.

Great to see you again And! :D Glad your newish job is going well but a bit sad that its kept you away for soooo long. :wink: I know what you mean tho, being around something so much at work, you really don't always want to come home to it. (I feel the same way when my friends suggest going to a casino or horse/dog track for a night out.)

I'm getting close to finishing ISWM now, having also been spinning it out to make it last, and have enjoyed it immensely.

New to these forums, greetings all.

I'm a 38 year old male, and life long TP fan, but ISWM is the only discworld novel which made me cry. There, I've said. Feel much better now.

Thanks TP.
