Funny and deep as only Pratchett does it.
I've read and loved every one of Mr. Pratchett's books, and this one stands with the best of them. Considering recent health reports, I had imagined he would be winding down, but this shows no evidence of that at all. I'm looking forward to finishing this one so I can start it over.
Moist, Vimes, and Veternari among others put in appearances in an enjoyable read about technology coming to the Disc. Avid Terry Pratchett fans might notice that the circular logic used may be just a little too circular, and the humor is not quite as off-beat and lopsided as usual. As a reader, instead of the usual oblivious and enjoyable ride in the back seat, I found myself being imbued with a purpose....as Mr..Pratchett might say, all of my fangles were encouraged to be new ones while reading this book. Nevertheless, worth reading if only for the exploration of the difference between species.
