Not the best Discworld book, but still a very worthy read
A great 25th book in the Discworld series. The story focuses on some previously unknown characters, but it's still discworld, no doubt about that.
Unlike some of the previous Discworld books, the story in this book is quite simple and most of it is just used for laughs. There is some satire about the "News business", but it serves mostly for quick jokes and less to sustain the story. I liked that Pratchett progressed from this to a more developed story during the evolution of the Discworld series, but in this one the lack of a very elaborate story does not bother me too much. Still, I felt that more could be done with the characters in the book, so I was left wanting a bit more.
However, the conclusion to the story of Mr. Pin and Mr. Tulip is absolutely sublime; funny and emotional.
