Raising Steam | Terry Pratchett

I have just realized I am reading this too early! Because the Long Blank books are so forgettable that my brain elided over them! Whoops!

Raising Steam | Terry Pratchett

I am trying to put my finger on what doesn't feel right about this (because it didn't feel right the first time and it doesn't feel right now) and: maybe it's the very long speeches people are giving uninterrupted?
(Moist also hasn't been in it much, for a Moist book, but that's more disappointing than anything.)

Raising Steam | Terry Pratchett

Starting this book for #OokBOokClub and I am reminded: I don't much care about trains. It was one of my problems the first time around!

A joy. The best of the Discworld books leave you with hope about the future, and this one did. It reminds people that hate is corrosive to the individual and the group, that acceptance is something we should all strive to practice, that invention can be essential, life-saving, and change, necessary. I had a lot of fun with the train journey and flipping back frequently to the map at the front. 🚂

GingerAntics I‘m still not sure I have a clue what happened in The Long Earth. 3w

GingerAntics @julesG I was thinking the same thing. lol I was going to look it up. Maybe it will get clearer the more the story goes along? I‘ve had the happen before. Hopefully this is one of those times. 3w

A few of the Discworld short stories I had read before elsewhere, but the Granny one was still my favorite….the other ones were a bit hit and miss for me personally.

An interesting read because Sir Terry certainly reused ideas - a lot of the non Discworld stuff eventually found its way there. Still, enjoyable! Fav non Discworld story is the Christmas horror one.

Gotta say, the note in front of Theater of Cruelty is right: it IS a lot easier to understand I you know about Punch and Judy (knowledge I lacked when I first read this as a child).

Also, very funny that it took books and books for Vimes to see Death (and then he doubts the reality of the moment), but Carrot is out here interviewing him ASAP.
