I like the Clan, and it had something in common with the Bromeliad, but it's not one of my favourite Discworld books.
First Pratchett I have read.Adult fairy story which made me laugh out loud.Will certainly read some others
I have to admit that I struggled a bit to get into this book; the first chapters are entertaining but not too amazing, but once the Rat King appears, the tone and the rhythm rise a lot. Then, it is a great adventure written in Terry Pratchett's usual style, funny but vaguely creepy. Not a children book, maybe it could justify the use of the awful expression "young adults" as the intended target. Whichever the target, anyway, it is a really good read.

Un libro Fantastico!!!!!!!
A very good book. Refreshing, in a sense.
After more than 20 Discworld books, I have to admit stories with the usual cast of characters start to wear thin. That's why a change is very welcome.
Mind you: it's always the Discworld, and it's always Pratchett. This is both good and bad at the same time, for the reasons above.
Nonetheless, books like this one are refreshing: it's a little like discovering Pratchett for the first time. Again.
