Great to see you again, feanor and welcome back! :D

I have to say that UA isn't my favourite either, but it's worth the effort in the end.

Glad ISWM has reignited your desire for Pratchett. I think we may hear more about Esk in future books. There's definitely a lot been left unsaid I think. :D

I'm not reading any comments at in this thread, but am just posting to say that I it FINALLY went on sale in the U.S. and I FINALLY got my copy of the book today (from the library. Sorry PTerry). Amazingly enough, less than 8 people in the entire metro Boston area had it on reserve so I got mine right away. The U.S. cover is just as bad in person as it is in the promo pictures.

Am going to light into this thing like a dwarf onto rat.

That makes no sense :lol: I guess it means your going to read it really quickly, with plenty of outward signs of enjoyment?

Tiffany comes of age, at last. Didn't really enjoy the first three but this last is brilliant and perceptive. Perhaps it's the admixture of the "old" characters that helped me finally to see the Chalk as an integrated part of Discworld. I even went back and read that first three (and still found them a difficult, less compelling read). A good book makes you care about its characters and in ISWM this has happened

Hellooo and welcome Perebis Sedate. :D I'm glad you enjoyed the book as well.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
