Almost halfway through, I was having a terrible time finding the motivation to read this ebook. I liked the story well enough but I finally realized that the fact it has no clear chapters puts me off so badly!
I managed to find the audiobook through Spotify & I'm already enjoying the listening experience so much more! I won't have enough hours this month to finish the whole thing but will catch up with #OokBOokClub discussions soon @julesG

julesG Don't worry. The no chapters thing keeps tripping me up too. And then I end up reading the whole book in one go anyway and it doesn't matter. 6d

I'll admit to being a little worried that based on a couple key reveals, this book wouldn't hit the same upon reread. I'm happy to report the impact is still felt. Even knowing what's to come, how the characters act, and particularly what they say, is affecting. It's not just that you're invested in how things turn out, how the characters fare, it's finding out what success would really mean in this situation. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality It's a commentary on conflict, the needless brutality of war, it's foremost a commentary on how women have been oppressed, mistreated and disregarded, and all the societal structures set up to continue that pattern of wrong action, but it's almost as much also a commentary on how dangerous an organized religion can be - one that doesn't move with the times, one that demands the impossible of all, that acts against the interests of its flock. 2/? 1w
Robotswithpersonality 3/3 I'm not sure that stood out as clear to me the first time 'round, but it really showed up this time. I should mention of course, that this is also regularly hilarious and occasionally touching, with an array of memorable characters. It wouldn't be a Terry Pratchett Discworld book, otherwise. ♥️

Having wrangled some gnarly filing systems, I feel this in my BONES.

Rereading (listening really) this again. When I first read it it became one of my least favorite #Discworld books. But as as been happening a lot lately I am liking it a lot now.

julesG Some of the "I didn't like them" #Discworld books grow on me the often I re-read them. 2w

I read this Pratchett book for #OokBookClub @julesG

Not my favorite of Pratchett but still enjoyed. As I stated previously, it reminded me of the movie Pink Panther. 3.5⭐️

#Discworld not my favourite but I did like the look at demonology, hell, Greek mythology and the dangers of making wishes.
