DGRachel I have to admit I'm #ghosthosting again. As a #mopargirl, I fully expected to love this tale of a boy and his Plymouth Fury, but I must have just been in a mood when I tried to read this. I've seen a lot of love here for it, but it's a #bail for me, at least for now. I tried both print and audio and never got far. I was just bored and annoyed. 😩 Sorry #LosersClub! (edited) 23h
Ashley_Nicoletto I enjoyed this one WAY more than I thought I would! 23h
BookwormAHN I was quite shocked at how much I enjoyed this one. 23h
DGRachel @Ashley_Nicoletto @BookwormAHN Sounds like I really need to give it another go when I'm in a different mood. (edited) 22h
Lizpixie This has always been one of my favourite Kings. I first read it when I was in high school(I know, a very long time ago)and the dynamic between Dennis, Arnie & Leigh was highly relatable to 15yr old me but then you throw in that monstrous car and it‘s #CliquesGoneDemonic I even enjoyed the movie version, it‘s not up there with the original Carrie or Salem‘s Lot, but it‘s still disturbing in all the best ways🚗😈🚶🏻‍♂️👫 22h

Soubhiville I LOVE this book! It‘s one of my favorite Discworld novels. I love the idea that even Death can get burned out and need a change of pace. I love his slow vacation time in a quiet town, farming among country folks. I love him dancing. There‘s a quote near the end about one‘s life not fading away as long as we‘re remembered. (I‘ll look it up and post later- my Discworld are in the bedroom and the Mr is still sleeping 😴) 2w
julesG @Soubhiville I ❤️ everything you just wrote about this book. It's one of my favourite too. 2w
Soubhiville @julesG I‘m also a huge fan of the Death of Rats. I have him on a tee shirt. 🖤🐀💀 2w

Aimeesue I adore DEATH. He's one of my favorite DW characters. This book in particular does a lovely job of placing him in contrast to people, which is one of the great things about sci-fi/fantasy - showing us what it means to be human. One of the reasons I love these books so much. (edited) 2w
Aimeesue @Soubhiville The Death of Rats! SQUEAK 2w
Soubhiville “In the Ramtop village, where they dance the real Morris dance, for example, they believe that no-one is finally dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away- until the clock he wound winds down, until the wine she made has finished its ferment, until the crop they planted is harvested. The span of someone‘s life, they say, is only the core of their existence.” @julesG @Aimeesue 2w
Soubhiville ⬆️ one of my favorite quotes of all time. ❤️ 2w
khooliha I read this one out of step with the readathon on accident, and even a month later the Death stuff stands out way more than the Windle Poons part. I wish it were more about Bill Door - that's where the most interesting stuff is. 2w
gossamerchild I do t have much to say about this book, because I agree with everyone 😂😁. This is a fantastic book, and I love that quote. 2w
julesG @Soubhiville 👏👏👏it's a great quote! 2w
Aimeesue @Soubhiville One of my favorite quotes as well. And that's the one that Pratchett fans clung to after Sir Terry's death - that he goes on as long as the electronic clacks (wwweb) exists and we keep mentioning his name. ❤️❤️❤️ (edited) 2w
Soubhiville @Aimeesue 💜💜💜 forever in our hearts. 2w
Chrys I am finding that I only get into the Discworld books that feature either Death, Witches and/or Wizards. So this one was a pick for me whereas I had struggled with Guards Guards and Pyramids. I am adding the Death of Rats and the Death of Fleas to my list of favorites in Pratchett‘s works. 2w
Gezemice @Soubhiville @julesG I loved this one, too. And yes,the Death of Rats is a favorite of mine :) @aimeesue (edited) 5d
Gezemice @khooliha I agree, Bill Door was the best part of the story. I did not mind Windle Poons and the bumbling wizards, but the shopping cart story was blah. 5d
hgrimes @khooliha I also could have done without the Windle Poons storyline. I just want Death all the time! 4d

Again, huge apologies for being late. I suck at this hostess thing. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Please forgive me. The next book is #Christine and reading starts today! Grab your copy and check back July 18th (or thereabouts) for open discussion! I‘m going to try to actually read this one, not just #ghosthost.

BookwormAHN My hold at library still hasn't come in for Pet Sematary but I'm ready for next month's chat on Christine. 1mo
TheBookAddict So, who else was at the end like, what?!? What happened after she came back?!? Was she an evil demon or was he right? Did he have to burry her ASAP so she could come back more like herself? What happened after that? Did they go to Florida? What happened to Ellie? So many question!!! 😔 I need to call King and ask him all of these questions 😝. 1mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @TheBookAddict Me! 🤣🤣 I have so many open questions still. I didn‘t particularly care for this one. It wasn‘t my favorite King. I mostly felt like the book was moving along at a pretty slow case and then BOOM everyone‘s being resurrected from the dead. 1mo
Karkar @TheBookAddict me too!! I loved this one. It was the first time I read it. 1mo
TheBookAddict @Ashley_Nicoletto true, it was a bit slow, but I still liked it. It seems like he was making sure to develop his characters quite a bit, maybe so you‘d feel more for them the stuff hit the ceiling fan. In some parts I was a bit impatient for him to get to the good stuff though. @Karkar it was also my first time reading it. Now I need to go watch the movie 😆. 1mo
