I have not Big Patience, that's why I already started read "WinterSmith" ( although I didn't finish of "Thud"!).... I do it sometimes, when I not reading "Thud"...
And I found that I no need dictionary now! ... well... Apart from 1-2 word per page!
(in "Thud": when I started read - from 5 to 20 and 3-12 now plus meditation about some phrases (for right understanding)
PS Seriously: Unfortunately, books about Tiffany haven't translated in Russian yet:( Thats why I'll be able to talk about it only after have finish of reading 'WinterSmith' at least.
