I Shall Wear Midnight…

I Shall Wear Midnight is the most recent book in the Discworld series. It’s a continuation of the Tiffany Aching story line and like the other Young Adult books, doesn’t have such a densely packed story line. It was enjoyable, but didn’t rock my world. Cheers Tim…

Wintersmith and Making Money…

During my recent trips I read the last two books in the Discworld series… Wintersmith – The Wintersmith (the God of winter, sort-of) falls in love with Tiffany Aching, a young witch. If Tiffany handles it badly the discworld cold be thrown into a permanent winter. The 4th in the young adults series. I got […]

Thud!

The first 50 pages of Thud! were a real struggle for me. I love the Sam Vimes character so I was expecting this book to click instantly and it just didn’t. It starts off quite serious and there seems to be a distinct lack of humour. So I switched my mindset from expecting humour to […]

A Hat Full of Sky and Going Postal…

The recent traveling as given me a chance to read some more Discworld books. A Hat Full of Sky – Another mission for the new witch Tiffany Aching. A nice story, but like the other Young Adult Discworld books, it lacks a little edge. Going Postal – Against his will, a conman called Moist von […]

More Discworld Books…

The recent travelling means I’ve been able to do some more Discworld reading: The Truth: Ankh-Morpork gets its first newspaper. It’s all downhill from there on… Thief of Time: The perfect clock is built, time stops and the world as we know it ends. Susan, Death’s Granddaughter, and the History Monks come to the rescue. […]

Soul Music and Interesting Times…

Rock and Roll is born on Discworld in Soul Music and Rincewind frees the Counterweight Continent in Interesting Times. Although both books are pretty good, by the standards of previous offerings I felt they were a little flat. Maybe some of that is down to the manner in which I read them. Most of the […]

Lords and Ladies and Men at Arms…

My quest to read the Discworld series continues: Lords and Ladies – This book starts where Witches Abroad finished. This time the witches have to prevent elves returning to the Discworld. Love, marriage, death and elves. What more could you want. Men at Arms – I keep reading these books and saying, “This one is […]

Reaper Man, Witches Abroad and Small Gods…

It’s a while since I mentioned any books, so I thought I’d get myself up to date… Reaper Man – Death takes a holiday and chaos ensues. Death is my favorite character in the Discworld series, so I really enjoyed this one. Witches Abroad – Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick have to go […]

Post New Year Life Update and Moving Pictures…

Today marks the end of my first full week of “normal” life for quite some time! I’ve managed to: Swim every day. Get to all my Karate lessons. Do Yoga with my Yoga-buddies, as well do my regular stint of teaching. Get to the gym. Stretch a couple of times a day. Do a bit […]

Guards! Guards! Eric and Moving Pictures…

I recently finished reading Guards! Guards! and Eric. Guards! Guards! has got some great characters and is probably one of my favorite books so far in the series. Eric is a really short story, but it quite pacey, so it was pretty good. I’m about a third of the way through Moving Pictures and I’m […]
