Pickpick

After reading #Hogfather I'm quite disappointed with the tv special . The tv special focused so much on TEATIME and his mission at the #Toothfairy home that they lost some of the better elements of the novel . I really like the characters of #Death , Susan and Albert. Due to Death being able to travel through time this story does happen after Soul Music and it doesn't . Albert refers to Hogwatch night in #soulmusic . Time is irrelevant to Death .

Mehso-so

I‘m not entirely sure about this one... I like Pratchett voice, but it‘s a bit too much over the top for me, or maybe it‘s just too much...? It reeds like YA book, but at least half the jokes/innuendo would go past a YA reader... And for an adult, or at least this adult, it‘s a little as if the author couldn‘t choose who/what to make fun of, so he just made fun of everything he could think of???

julesG That sums it up fairly well. 5d
CarolynM Yes, that's what he does. I still chuckle about Rincewind's exit from the Trojan Horse. 5d
LittleBug @julesG not a big fan either? Glad I‘m not the only one☺️ 5d

LittleBug @CarolynM That‘s the thing, I didn‘t feel like chuckling, more like shaking my head🙈🥴 5d
julesG Actually, I'm a big Pratchett fan. (I've taken over hosting #OokBOokClub about a year ago) I like the Discworld books, but this is not one of my favourites. 5d
LittleBug @julesG that‘s good to know! I really wanted to like Pratchett, now I know it‘s worth trying another one of his books🤩 5d
julesG Although it might throw you into the middle of the Discworld, but this one is a good starter. 5d
LittleBug @julesG Stacked! Thanks!☺️ 5d
