Hmm, I liked this book but I didn't love it as much as everyone else seemed to & I don't think it's anywhere near as good as his stories or non-fiction writing!

Not my favourite Discworld novel, but still lots of fun. I wish the luggage was in every book

MayJasper @bookingaround me too. The luggage can soon spot malevolence and get rid of it 😀 5y

I liked the writing, but would have preferred a little more of a storyline. There were some wonderful moments

I love Sarah's illustration style - it's a beautiful love story. It kind of reminded me of 'Ethel & Ernest'

This book broke my heart. It doesn't try to give solutions - just shows that we are short-changing the next generation without really asking questions about gun crime

This book had its moments, but overall it left me a bit unsatisfied. I certainly didn't think it was hilarious, which some reviews called it. Some insightful commentary on race and gentrification, but it didn't go far enough, I think.
