January Books 5) The Wee Free Men, by Terry Pratchett

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.
