Got it yesterday. Enjoying it so far. Pratchett was on BBC breakfast this morning plugging it, so anyone who can get their news videos could catch it.

It's another taboo one - and specifically is there ever one racial taboo that cannot be broken? Luckily I can't predict how it will go.

Re: Unseen Academicals

I've just bought it, but I have far, far too much to read. I'm never going to catch up at this rate. I've got 5 more in the time it took me to read 2...

Re: Unseen Academicals

Well finished it and I have to say it was pretty much classic Pratchett. Compared to his very best, like Night Watch, it doesn't fare so well but overall there were enough sparkling touches to make it a good read. The (anti)hero is a joy. Some of his lines are really laugh out loud.
