Book number 14 for me in 2014 was Terry Pratchett’s Raising Steam, which is the 40th book in his Discworld series. I have read all 40 of these books and enjoyed each one of them. A large part of me is tempted to start them again from the beginning – what a fabulous series to re-read!
I have seen plenty of poor reviews for this novel, and I won’t write too much now, but suffice to say, I liked it! I did think that Sir Terry managed to mention almost every major character he has based a novel on – except the Witches – and that did leave me wondering if this is the last Discworld novel, which would be sad although understandable. There was a lot happening in this book, but I really enjoyed it. I listened to the audiobook version and I liked Steven Brigg’s narration. I have rated this 4 out of 5. I love the Discworld books.
Rating: 4 out of 5
