Very good review from The Washington Post.

BUT I would just say that the reviewer talks a little too much about the plot for my liking and if I hadn't already read the book, I think I would have found the review a little too revealing. :?

I'm disappointed with some of the authors ranked below J K Rowling. :shock:

Polls are about people who actually bother to vote. Pratchett fans are incredibly loyal as are Rowling fans. So of course they'll vote.

I really enjoyed reading Nation, couldn't put it down. I finished it earlier today, when I should have been doing housework :D
A very different format to Terry's usual books & a lot of research must have gone into it to. Brilliant Terry.
Best wishes,
Tiff
