Terry Pratchett: The Last Hero

The Last Hero (Discworld, #27; Rincewind #7)The Last Hero by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am blown away by the beauty of that edition. The illustrator is a genius. But there also lies the problem, because I was so busy staring at the pretty pictures that I didn’t concentrate on the words. I loved the Kirk quote and I still really love Rincewind. I get him. And the librarian.

Storywise it was your typical Discworld narrative. I’m not disappointed and also not surprised. All is good.

Terry Pratchett: Thud

Thud! (Discworld, #34; City Watch #7)Thud! by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

<3<3<3<3<3<3
Topics: Racism, Intolerance, perception, heritage, history. Dealt with admirably, because every character struggles with (or with overcoming of) their preconception and perception of the Other, may they be dwarf, human, troll, woman or vampire (okay, maybe Young Sam doesn’t) and that is wonderful. You have no righteous character, even Vimes who is ‘as straight as an arrow’ as to overcome his prejudices and I love that. That’s smart writing. And it is honest writing. And on top the story is also funny in places, as is to be expected. Much love!

And if you’re too afraid of going astray, you won’t go anywhere.” (p.341)

I love it. It’s wise and warm and funny and simply leaves me with a warm, fuzzy feeling. It is really a deeply wonderful and human story and I love Granny Weatherwax.

Terry Pratchett: The Last Continent

The Last Continent (Discworld, #22; Rincewind #6)The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I stand by the fact that it was too close to the real world. But, no worries. It is still fun and witty and sarcastic and an easy read. I just hope that it’ll be a bit more disc-worldly and less Earthly because I don’t think it needs this obvious connection to comment on the world we live in 🙂

Terry Pratchett: Moving Pictures

Moving Pictures (Discworld, #10; Industrial Revolution, #1)Moving Pictures by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Not the best in the series, I think. It didn’t say anything new about Hollywood, even though I enjoyed how it played around with iconic movies and movie stars. Gaspode = <3. But otherwise, it's okay but sort of skippable.

Terry Pratchett: Lords and Ladies

Lords and Ladies (Discworld, #14; Witches #4)Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This one I think is darker and much more grim than the others before. Not bad, mind you. But since it draws from “A Midsummer Nights Dream”, which is a very dark play itself and not a comedy thank you very much, it is to be expected. I really feared for Granny Weatherwax. But all’s well that ends well, right?
