Pratchett, Terry -- Unseen Academicals
I wish it were possible to think about this book without thinking
about Pratchett's illness, and how it might have affected the work. I
can say that I liked this one better than Making Money, but not as
much as Going Postal or Thud. Can I say that the plot felt a
little too wandery? Maybe, but then I was looking for symptoms, and
that's too easy to do when an author hasn't been formally diagnosed.
Anyhow. A terrific batch of new characters, an acceptably evolved
visit to the Unseen wizard crew -- some of them have actually moved on
to new things -- and no, I don't care that the footy-ball has never
been mentioned before in the series.
