Raising Steam | Terry Pratchett

I have been 100 pages into this book for 2 months and I can't bring myself to go back to it. Something about the writing! My brain can't take it! #OokBOokClub

julesG I can relate, I powered through because it's the last Discworld novel. 1w
khooliha @julesG I was hoping it would click with me in a way it didn't when I first read it, but no dice. 1w
julesG Shame! But they can't all be winners. Will you be doing the rest of the buddyread with us? 1w
khooliha @julesG I will for the last 2 books I own, his nonfiction collection and The Shepherd's Crown. I haven't read The Shepards's Crown before and I'm looking forward to doing it for the first time with everybody! 1w
julesG I'm also looking forward to Shepherd's Crown. It will be my first read, too. And then I'm looking forward to the biography to round up the whole book club. 1w

Good evening Littens. I managed to get super lucky today and got a great deal that enabled me to replace my damaged second-hand Terry Pratchett collection. His books brought me to reading when I was a kid. I also managed to get some first edition Harry Potter books #collection #booksbooksbooks #discworld

Finished reading. Not the best Discworld book but okay. I think a lot of it went over my head. Preferred Going Postal much better.

Steam engines have come to the Disc. At the same time, a small & vocal group of dwarves are committing terrorism & arson in the name of “Dwarves First.” Fortunately, chaos is where Moist von Lipwig thrives.

I love the Moist novels. Chaotic & thrilling, but also thoughtful commentaries. Here we watch a vocal group push against progress & change, because they are scared & angry. Loved the whole cast, loved the goblins, loved the ending. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

jitteryjane724 Have you read much Pratchett? I'd be curious for the sequence you recommend going through Discworld. 3w
Vansa I love his Moist books.Theyre a beautiful alternate description of Victorian era technological developments. 3w

Vansa @jitteryjane724 I read Discworld in the chronological order of publication of books! They're hugely enjoyable either way. But for books with a particular set of characters, for instance, The Watch series, or the Witches, you have to read those in order. 3w
ozma.of.oz @jitteryjane724 I first read them in the order that my library had available copies! 😂 So no order at all, but I love sharing this flow chart for people interested in starting! https://goddamnshinyrock.tumblr.com/post/702487404966232064/goddamnshinyrock-god... 3w
jitteryjane724 @ozma.of.oz thanks for the flow chart! I'll probably use this to help decide, but I too am at the mercy of my library 😁 3w
jitteryjane724 @Vansa good point!! 3w
TheSpineView Great job! 3w

Soubhiville I loved this. The cast of characters, as always, was great. I love that the engine was her own character in a way. The trolls are some of my favorite characters. And I‘m a big Moist fan. I‘m just sad that this is the last of the Discworld novels. I may reread the Tiffany Aching series later this year. Thanks for hosting the discussions @julesG ! 3w
julesG @Soubhiville 😘 I'm also sad this is the last Discworld novel. 😭 Moist has become a favourite of mine too. 3w

ozma.of.oz It always boggles my mind how timely his books remain, whether they were written ten years ago or forty. I absolutely loved the complete chaos that results from the steam engines. I loved more of the goblins. I‘ve always wondered if Pratchett had written more, would we have seen Vetinari molding Moist into the next patrician? 3w
julesG @ozma.of.oz Interesting question. Probably. It makes sense. But I always thought Vetinari was going to be patrician forever. 3w
khooliha @ozma.of.oz It feels very much like that was going to be Moist's path, but maybe in a way we wouldn't get to see. Don't know how Ankh-Morpork would handle a lighthearted Patrician! 1w

Received my #JolabokaflodSwap package today. Almost missed it walking out the door this morning. Thank you @Crazeedi 🎁⛄️

Crazeedi I'm so glad it made it! I just wanted to tell you I was going to wrap everything inside, but we had and emergency in my family and I had to leave to stay in Pittsburgh at hospital with my sister, so my hubby sent it for me, he didn't wrap. I'm so sorry but my affection is wrapped inside 2mo
MatchlessMarie @Crazeedi No worries! I hope all is well with your family. 🧡 1mo
