Another great Discworld novel just not uite 5 stars More tomorrow hopefully45 So a couple of days have elapsed and I still feel that this is not uite a 5 star read far enough away to make it a solid 4 stars It is as ever with Sir Terry a fantastic story and a wonderful parody of 20th21st century lifeThis book starts with the death of an old man who was guarding the hill at Holy Wood by the sea Without his daily chants strange things start to awaken and attempt to escape from the cave beneath the hill The alchemists are drawn to the hill and are strangely interested in starting a moving picture industry whatever that may be So clicks are born and people flock to Holy Wood to be a part of this new industry But all is not well beneath the hill as magic escapes than can be managed and the click industry expands at an exponential rate getting the picture Enter Victor the laziest of student wizards Ginger a farm girl Gaspode the most scruffy of dogs but a talker and Laddie the worlds best acting dog Good boy Laddie add these new characters to old favourites like CMOT Dibbler The Librarian oook and 2 cameo appearances from DEATH The Watch appear briefly as do the senior wizards All in all a fabulous recipe for a marvellous novel and Sir Terry does not fail to deliverOh gosh it is just so close to 45 stars but I can t keep giving all the DIscworld novels 5 stars so this is just a 4 star read

Sess in the same way that they possess weight Sadly alchemists never really held with such a uaint notion They think that they can change reality shape it to their own purpose Imagine then the damage that could be wrought if they get their hands. Can you hear that It s the sound of a movie reel Discworld has it s first foray into the industrial revolution Here in form of the last guardian of an old portal dying without anybody being there to take up his tasks Not long after some alchemists in Ankh Morpork develop clicks moving pictures painted by enslaved little demons Cut Me Own Throat Dibbler the sausage dealer isn t gonna miss out on a chance to get rich so he becomes the first agentfilm studio executive Soon first people and then animals that can suddenly talk are drawn to where the portal used to be Holy Wood without knowing why they had the intense urge to be there and be in a picture or help make one Holy Wood soon is growing moving pictures are created in colour even sound is still very complicated and the place is becoming stronger while at least some people start noticing that something s wrong Such as Victor the male lead From then on the crack between dimensions gets larger and larger and there is a mad dash for nothing less than saving the entire Discworld because that is what a male lead does rightSome old beloved characters such as the Librarian or Death as well as some new ones like Gaspode or the trolls spice up this story and it s a delight And let s not forget that the city of Ankh Morpork itself technically is a character too just like the Unseen University s library Oh and the current Arch Chancellor who will remain so for uite a while apparently now is Ridcully a fantastically uirky addition to the whole bunch of wizzardsI burst out laughing several times while reading it and could uote over half of the bookPratchett in his usual deadpan humour parodies product placements the treatment of cast and crew on a film set actors behavior the making of movies historically and mechanically the plot points in movies fame the media circus the power of imagination and even serious topics such as discrimination and racism in the industryThere is also than one movie reference in this such as for Gone with the Wind King Kong Ben Hur and a few others with a Discworld twist of courseTruth be told I was reluctant to read this at first I d heard about the industrial revolution books of course that form a group much like the ones about the witches or the City Watch but I didn t think I d like them too much because I want my Discworld to stay almost medieval in its atmosphere and feared the changes However that fear was completely unfounded at least in this book On the contrary especially because I feared a clash of the good old with the shiny new Discworld it was all the funny to read about A Wild Idea arriving and trying to find a place Thus it s no surprise this has fast become one of my facourite Discworld booksOnce again I ve read this in the audio format once again the narrator was Nigel Planner once again he was brilliant From the sound effects like the movie reels to the accents especially of the trolls and CMOT he nailed it

On the ultimate alchemy the invention of motion pictures the greatest making of illusions It may be a triumph of universe shaking proportions It's either that or they're about to unlock the dark terrible secret of the Holy Wood hills by mistake. I m stingy with my 5 star ratings and considered going with a 4 here but I really enjoyed this read It is hilarious From Trolls who don t want to get type cast I played a troll who runs out and hits him with a rock to a talking wonder dog who can t get noticed because he s too scruffy the cliches of the movies get very skewered Everyone is headed to theHoly Wood to be a star And of course as we all know moving pictures or the clicks can effect the fabric of reality Sir Terry has a gift and most of the Disc world books are worth their freightsome are better than others and this is one of the better So Grab yourself a sausage on a bun and some banged grains find a comfortable spot and enjoy

    I wasn't under the weather this time and again I enjoyed but didn't love it Maybe I should just save the Terry Pratchetts for times when I'm sick It's a weird uirk Or maybe it's just that I love the Watch books but haven't fallen for the rest of the universe uite so hardNote The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn

    I love Pratchett and the Discworld but there are few DW books I didn't enjoy as much Don't get me wrong this is funny book but nothing than that and I come to expect lot from Discworld Simply there there is no that brilliance sharp wit and excellent uotable dialogues that best of the books in the series seem to have in abundance
