The Long Earth | Terry Pratchett, Stephen Baxter

Yeah, I can't with this - too boring! At least that buys me some shelf space when I give away these hardcovers! #OokBOokClub

The Long Earth | Terry Pratchett, Stephen Baxter

This book, at 2 hours of audio, is such a slog. I don't find any of these characters interesting, and the thick layer of colonialism/manifest destiny is actively pushing me away. #OokBOokClub

Nutmegnc I‘ve tried to get into this author over the years and I feel the same with most of his works. He just doesn‘t work for me. I know so many folks love him, I just always end up disappointed and bored. 🤷‍♀️ 2w
khooliha @Nutmegnc Terry Pratchett? I do love him! I don't know if it's having a coauthor or if it's setting things on Earth, or if it's just where the book falls in his bibliography, but this book is going to be a long haul. 2w
julesG Managed two chapters the other day. I'm not inclined to pick it up again. 2w
khooliha @julesG I'm trying hard hard not to bail, but I may be losing the fight. 2w

Jumping on this as my next driving audio book so that maybe I can keep up with the #OokBOokClub properly this month!

Mehso-so

Parts if this novel are marvelous, parts of it are a slog, and parts of it leave a very bad taste in my mouth. I think the Vetinari speech at the end is a very sour note! And this is also the last Vimes book and, well, I wish it had come together better.

Still working through this book and I can honestly say this is the first Discworld book where I want more of the Colon plot. #OokBOokClub

Soubhiville I love Pratchett‘s way of humanizing all of his races. Getting to know the goblins better was touching. I also got a kick out of his glee of the gross. Between the goblins and their snot pots and Young Sam and his poo obsession, not to mention how awful he always describes the river as being. 3w
Soubhiville One of my favorite quotes (this is from memory, definitely not word for word) is about the countryside being nothing but trees, which are just tall weeds with really thick stems. 😆 3w

Soubhiville Do we think Nobbs has found love at the end of this one? I felt like he maybe has! 3w
ozma.of.oz I love Sybil so much! ❤️ Her no nonsense support of Vimes, what she accomplished at the end with Tears of the Mushroom. And while I was listening, I had to stop to dig out my physical copy so I could highlight so many lines, including the quote “Goodness is about what you do. Not who you pray to.” 2w
khooliha @Soubhiville I think Nobby has and, honestly, I'm thrilled for him! He has been the biggest surprise of this reread - I really do love Nobby, who seems to have more going on than any character gives him credit for. 2w
khooliha Hey, why is this book titled Snuff? I still do not get it. 2w
khooliha I wish that this book had taken place more in the city, for the sake of the theme of assimilation (which it totally drops at like the 60% point), and I -really- wish we had seen more of Colon's state from his own point of view, but that's because that's the sort of storyline I LOVE. 2w
khooliha I really hate that this is the second Watch book in a row where the 'solution' to a revolutionary is to make them a cop! Justice for Reg and Jethro! 2w
khooliha Oh, also, I found the human villain (Stratford?) a very frustrating device - he's Bad and Dangerous, terribly so, but also our leads pretty much always have the jump on him, rendering him not much more than bad intentions. He also isn't enough of a foil to work as a metaphorical evil, I don't think. And it took over half the book to introduce him! He's a weak link, to me. 2w
