Shelves: fiction-humour , fiction-sf-and-fantasy When I was a teenager, a friend and I wrote a behemoth of a three-page letter on A4 paper to Terry Pratchett. We were amazed and grateful when a reply arrived from him a few months later, apologising for the delay and attempting to answer some of our many questions. One of the questions we asked was, "What football team do you support? Warm, fuzzy memories aside, I wanted to love this latest Discworld no When I was a teenager, a friend and I wrote a behemoth of a three-page letter on A4 paper to Terry Pratchett. Warm, fuzzy memories aside, I wanted to love this latest Discworld novel. They've been on a good run for over a decade in my opinion, they'd started going a little stale between Jingo and The Fifth Elephant but were refreshed again from The Truth. However, in the end I didn't love UA - but I did like it. Mostly it felt like business as usual in the Discworld. The theme took a well-trod path - a protagonist who stands out in a suspiciously mystical way during a current craze, reminding me a lot of Soul Music and Maskerade. It's inevitable that with so many books in a series, some will echo others but Pratchett usually imbues enough of a twist to stop the whole feeling formulaic. Not so here. I like the familiarity of reading a new Discworld book, like meeting up with an old friend again but, to overstretch an analogy, this felt like they were telling the same story I heard last time I saw them.

In all, he was the author of over fifty bestselling books. His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, as well as being awarded a knighthood for services to literature.

No one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too. As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and chaged for ever. Because the thing about football - the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football. Here we go!

Now 16 years old, Tiffany is now the witch of the Chalk doing everything that needs to be done from tending the Baron to looking after newest of babes.

Then things seem to start to go wrong from a father assaulting his daughter to the old Baron dying in front of Tiffany and the nurse accusing her of killing him. Thanks to the Feegles, Tiffany spends a night in jail but learns witches all around are feeling pressure. Unlike previous books, the Feegles are more important minor characters than major secondary ones which focuses the book on Tiffany alone with her dealing with everything and everyone.

I Shall Wear Midnight is a delightful return to the Disc and a somewhat return to form for Pratchett with a solid story that does not meander like some of the previous books of the series.

Teen Witch. A memorable entry in the Tiffany Aching canon, this deals with the phenomena of crowd psychology, rumor, prejudice and ill-will from the perspective of our favorite witch.

Once more she is facing a seemingly unbeatable enemy, who she must of course beat. I'll say no more for fear of spoiling. Roland is getting married, but not to Tiffany, and this makes her life difficult on many levels.

The Nac Mac Feegle are back in all their glory, with a special guest appearance by Horace. The world is pretty much the way it was when we left Tiffany after her run-in with The Wintersmith, except she is a couple of years older.

I'm pulling a star because the book feels a little formulaic after the tale of The Wintersmith. I have a half-feeling that this is unfair of me. Certainly the story dragged me along at every possible minute I could find to be nose-in to the book.

It just felt a tad anti-climactic and I felt I already knew how Tiffany would win out - I was almost right. I can't say why I won't put the star back and say it has only a half showing, but this felt like a very enjoyable four star experience. Maybe it was because the Feegles seem to have lost some of their reluctance to be seen and so many people now know of them.

I know that felt "wrong" to me. Presumptuous nonsense of course; only the author has the right to say how things stand.
