Reviews for Unseen Academicals
Another gem from Pratchett
I love Terry Pratchett novels they are gentle gems of humor that do what a good fantasy should - allow you to escape to another world in this case Discworld and the city of Ank-Morpork.
Following this story as I have for many years , i have noticed that Mr Pratchett is a consistent writer with a steady hand and wry humor which is very evident in the characters that he creates . Even this title who's subject matter ( a football match in a world where magic works when it wants to) you wouldn't have necessarily put together fits in seamlessly with the already rich characters and surroundings.
The Librarian of course has always been my favorite so any book that includes him is a winner for me but there are so many other layered storylines as well that further the readers knowledge of the progression of character development very succinctly.
I would recommend this book to anyone without reservation, but if you want to get more out of it I do suggest to read some of the earlier books and if you really want a laugh look up on the internet the recommended reading order for Discword novels if nothing else that should get you into the mindset to really enjoy this book by Eye Spy Booksunder review
