I haven't started it yet Brad, but I put it on my nightstand with a bookmark at page one :) Whatladder, I hadn't thought much about it but you are right, and observant! His most recent books do have some more complex social commentary in them. I like that too.

I think Pratchett went through a couple of major shifts in his writing, and Moving Pictures is on the cusp of one of those shifts. I like his more recent books much more, because he takes his social commentary to a more complex and interesting place.

Ok, you're behind on your challenges. Now read Gilgamesh and catch up on 2 of the challenges you have listed. I really enjoyed Mitchell's translation and I want to see what you think of it. Don't make me nag. :-)

I don't feel bad then Sylvia if you aren't even to Rivendell yet :) Dark Orpheus, I generally manage to read one Discworld book a year. Since there are so many I should be able to keep going like this for a long time. Dorothy, I had at one point sworn off all challenges. Turns out it's kind of like saying I'm not going to by anymore books. Oh Kate, I must come see what Discworld character I am! Iliana, I thought I was racking up the challenges! I don't feel so bad now ;) Brian, yummy books for dinner and yummy books for dessert make for happy readers. Quixotic and Nymeth, I agree, Moving Pictures isn't my favorite either, but definitely fun.

I'm with Quixotic - Moving Pictures is not one of my favourites, but it's still good, and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it.
