Somehow I hadn't got around to this, the last Pratchett book in the house (I've read all of Discworld except The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents and I think Reaper Man). It is very good; I think it has a particularly strong start, Tiffany Aching being one of Pratchett's best characters and the Nac Mac Feegle, who could easily just have been a one-joke race, giving us a twisted but profound perspective on the world of big people. This book is about death and growing up, and delivers its message subtly. And I loved the bit about the Nac Mac Feegle's swords glowing blue in the presence of a lawyer.

Top LibraryThing Unsuggestion: Systematic Theology by Wayne Gruden. Second is Dreams From My Father by Barack Obama.

I love the Tiffany Aching books! She's one of my favourite characters, which is saying something considering she appeared so late in the piece.

I highly recommend the next Tiffany Aching book as well, A Hatful of Sky. I want to be Tiffany when I grow up.

Permit me to humbly recommend the next Tiffany book again, Wintersmith. Good stuff.
