09:58 pm - Hardcover books are not the most convenient things to fit in handbags
So, yesterday my copy of Snuff by Terry Pratchett finally arrived. (The pay-off for the later arrival being that Book Depository had it for $10 cheaper than anywhere else).

I'm currently reading it - or, I should say, I'm currently re-reading it, since I rushed through the whole thing in one go yesterday, and now I'm settling down for a bit slower read as a tram/free-time novel.

Anyone on my flist read it, or in the process of reading? There's been something of a dearth of conversation about it in the usual places that I look, and I think I feel like some bookchat.

ETA: Spoilers in the comments.
Current Mood: thoughtfulthoughtful

I read it. I'm still digesting to some degree... I wonder where he's going overall with the goblins. Usually when he's got an issue underlying the main text I can figure it out; this time, I'm not sure what he's trying to say with the last two books goblin-wise.

Little Sam, though, is a delight. And Sybil rules.

Yes, little Sam is lovely - all the Vimes family stuff was great. I wonder where the drift is going for Young Sam with all that stuff about his naturalist "talents" - just for the gag, or subtext for the future (ish).

I think he's going to grow up and do forensics, personally.

That could indeed work.

Seriously! I can't see him as a wizard; his father's disdain will rub off. I think that despite what Willikins said, there's no other place for Sam to go except into the police. Add in his budding science-y side, and forensics it is!
