bromeliad trilogy - the best?

Postby sandier_uk » Mon Mar 23, 2009 1:29 pm

I just want to encourage all Pratchett fans to read 'The Bromeliad Trilogy'.
Especially the adults. The heart and wisdom in this book are amazing.
Truly a 'great' work by anyone's standards.

I loved Truckers, Diggers, Wings, and even recommended it to my hairdresser.
I've recently introduced the stylists to the Wee Free Men (which they loved), and they asked if I could recommend anything else.

Now, if I upset my stylist there's a chance that I could end up with a weird haircut, so I thought I'd play safe and get the salon staff to read something that I know is a safe bet!

Truckers, Diggers and Wings are wonderful and I enjoyed them I am currenty letting my sisters little girl read them and she is loving it, breeding her up to be a good and proper Pratchett supporter

Spreading the joy :D

Hi Sandier_uk, welcome to the forum.
I enjoyed reading the Bromeliad Trilogy too. Though I haven't re read it, I do have the books.
Next one is A Hat Full of Sky, for your stylists. :)
Best wishes,
Tiff

Well Batty, if you get your stylists to read A Hat Full of Sky and they do get upset, please post a pic of your hair :lol:

I think I may have read Truckers but it didn't make a big impact obviously - it may even have been The Carpet People... :oops:

I do seem to remember a Department Store? :roll:

Sounds like Truckers to me. :) The Carpet People is set in a carpet... :lol:

I've only read these books once I have to say. I did enjoy them but as to them being "the best" as the title of this thread suggests - well I wouldn't go that far. :)
