By: Terry Pratchett

I was disappointed by this book, as I had loved his previous Discworld book, (Unseen Academicals), about the University starting up its' own football team. I thought there was sections of action, followed by sections where the characters just stand around and talk at each other without advancing the plot much or at all. If the stories 'flow' had been better, or more to my liking, I would have enjoyed it a lot more as I thought the basic plot had a lot of promise.

That said, my father read my copy of "Snuff" after I had finished it and he liked it a lot more than I did, so it could easily be down to a matter of differences in taste than the book being bad. Meaning it was a little too slow and talky for my liking more than anything else. Which is a pity, as I'm a big Terry Pratchett fan and I wanted to like this book a lot more than I did.
