November Books 9) I Shall Wear Midnight, by Terry Pratchett
As I had hoped, an excellent novel rounding off the Tiffany Aching series, with a surprise appearance from someone we last saw much earlier in the Discworld stories. It deals with some pretty heavy subject matter in Pratchett's trademark combination of humour and profundity. Some day soon I shall go back and read all four Tiffany novels in sequence.
Excellent final quote from the author on the importance of history:
It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you don't know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, you don't know where you're going. And if you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.
