    The books have become more keen insight fulness about the world as seen through tht mirror the discworld has become. It are more wry smiles then laugh suddenly out louds, but enjoyable all the same.

    Generally I found the book enjoyable enough. It was standard MVL fayre. Maybe the character development was not great and the plot seemed incidental to the whole story but still an entertaining read.
    There was a nod to most of the other main characters throughout the Discworld series which made me think it was a farewell novel but maybe that is my own paranoia.

    I found it disappointing, if I'm honest. There were a few good moments, but it did feel a lot like we'd seen most of this plot before.

    Tired is probably the word I'd use.

    I stopped reading this book after ten pages - it's strange it doesn't seem to be TP's writing style at all. I appreciate he's not well and maybe I'm being too nostalgic but it's odd. It's almost as if he'd taken some fanfiction and bundled it into a book.
