A YA Historical Novel



By: Terry Pratchett

Genre: YA historical fiction/famtasy

Pages: 360

Published: 2012

Read: October

1 out of 5

I very much disliked this book. I found it very difficult to follow mainly because of the writing style. I would have given up except I choose it as a YA book club selection. As a member and, in this case, the moderator of the book club I would not give up. I have found that the primary reason I give up on books is the writing style because I find my mind wanders too much and if I read even 30 pages and you asked what I read I would be unable to tell you. I don’t feel the writing was poor; it was actually very well written – I just have a hard time following some styles and this was one.  This book reminded me of the style of Wicked by Gregory Maguire or Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan.

Terry Pratchett has written numerous books, both YA and adult.
