A Review of “Nation” by Terry Pratchett.
The last Tery Pratchett book I read was loaned to me by a friend because the cover was yellow (I like yellow) and it was about an assassin (I like assassins). That was in grade 12 and I read it several times while consuming banana granola bars (provided by same friend.) I don’t remember anything else about this book.
“Nation” was also loaned to me by a friend, because appaently I am only ever friends with Terry Pratchett fans. I spent the whole time reading it thinking I’d read it before, which I’m pretty sure I haven’t. It was probably just similar to other books I’ve read (Especially where we’re stranded on an island after a storm and a shipwreck with the main characters). Also, I kept thinking how similar the tone was to E. Waugh and P.G. Wodehouse (For example. I guess it’s the British dry mockery voice. Or something. I just notice it, I haven’t studied it. How funny English people are with their Ways tut tut.) And now I just realized that while I’ve read several things by Wodehouse, I haven’t acutally read any of his Jeeves and Wooster stories, which is odd, as I’ve seen the TV show, and this is why I’d know of him. Funny.
