Grade: Good/To Own

Hah! Veni, vici . . . Vetinari.

Enough said.

Frannie in Pieces

by Delia Ephron

Grade: Good

Bit strange. Turns into fantasy in the middle--sort of. And then the sort-of fantasy is never explained properly at the end.
I liked Frannie, I hated Simon, I wished Mel was nicer. He actually sounded interesting! It drove me a bit crazy that everyone thought he was boring.

Men at Arms

by Terry Pratchett

Grade: Good


There wasn't as much Vetinari as I was hoping, but good all the same. It was too bad Cuddy died. I think I like him better than Cheery, although I don't know Cheery very well. Poor Detrius. I loved the mathematics in the pork cooler place! It was an awsome description of higher mathematics.

Grade: Unfinished
Read: To page 4

There was no description or author description, so it look weird, and it was not interesting enough in the beginning. Wrong time period and method of speech, I think. And it was about smuggling, which doesn't interest me terribly.

Guards! Guards!

by Terry Pratchett

Grade: Good

Some wonderful Vetinari scenes and the first appearance of Samuel Vimes. And Sybl (however you spell that)! It was very weird to see them before they were married.

The Maze

by Monica Hughes

Grade: Good

Interesting little book. A bit obvious in places, perhaps. But I think I'm only saying that to be critique-y. The only thing I didn't like was the change in perspective. It didn't seem right somehow when it first happened.

Grade: Unfinished
Read: The first couple pages.

This one was weird... It's one of those best seller types. Skimming through it, I saw mentions of "marriage beds" and such. Only a best seller type would have that.
Plus there's no Odysseus.

He gets better and better. I have never read anything quite like him. The world--it's so real. I love the passing reference that Vimes made about Moist. And the constant cameos from the people in The Truth.
I want to own most of Terry Pratchett some day.
