Is that the fourth one? (I'm bad on the titles). If so, this one was the absolutely the worst, and I think Martin knows it, since he indicated in his notes that this one is really half of a much larger book he had to split into two. The series really went downhill in this one, and the fifth book is only a slight improvement.

Yeah it is the fourth. I've been about a quarter of the way through it for weeks. It's hard to get behind some of the new perspectives.

I'm reading Moving Pictures, I particularly like character Victor, He thought there was something unusual about Gaspode, because normal Anka Morpork dogs don't go woof :lol: :lol:

I liked UA as well. Thankfully it wasn't as much about football as I thought. I think Glenda is one of my favourite all time Pratchett characters. I remember having to explain the significance of the ending to Sharlene though. :lol:

I disliked UA when I read it the first time but got into it more from the Briggs recording. It's OK but not in the first 10 I would pull from the shelf to read again next
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
