I'm just halfway through Dodger and had to share something I think hasn't been commented on before. Solomon is repairing a watch and says " I look forward to making a sprocket or two".

When the musical of Dodger comes out, I suggest "you've got to make a sprocket or two" should be one of the major songs, and I can point you to ideal music for it.

:lol: I hadn't thought of that and I certainly wouldn't put it past Terry to slip something like that in there.

Welcome to the site. :)

Thanks for the welcome but I'm not really new. My computer died a couple of months ago and I couldn't remember my old username, so I made a new one.

I enjoyed Snuff, I thought it was a nice goodbye to the Duke. I'm finding PTerry is telling more than he's showing in these last few books.

But I loved Nation. Could not put it down and the ending was just blissful for me. I wish that had happened in real life.

Dodger not so much. I found it shallow and not up to the standard of earlier YA. It was still a good read but certainly not one of my favourites.

A nice goodbye? It's bad enough as it is to have Vimes as a former alcoholic, addicted to smoking cigars, and now addicted to goblin slavery-grown snuff!
Again, I loved Nation too, and wanted Dodger to be a literal sequel, not set in the same 'world'.

Dodger isn't actually in the same world as Nation. In Nation, there is an entirely different ruler of England. In Dodger, the queen is Victoria.

I would have liked another story set in the universe of Nation. It need not have been a direct sequel; I just like the idea of a completely different succession with very different ideas about individual nations' rights. I'm fond of Joan Aiken's series set in such a world (The Wolves of Willoughby Chase and sequels).
