|Anyone read Snuff?|
What did you think?
I did, and I loved it. Really enjoyed the growing relationship between Vimes and Willikins.
I thought Pratchett may have lost it a bit with Unseen Academicals (too messy for me, close to the first books) but with Snuff, I really felt he got a hand on his material.
And Goblins? Yeah!!!
I got if for Hogwatch (tee hee!) and was very disappointed. Laboured humour, what looked like desperate attempts to include familiar tropes, and a general lack of the don't-blink-now scene switching that was so much part of the fun in the earlier books.

JoeG BTW dumbass- some variations help ensure reproductive fitness so they cannot be random wrt it.
