Jeffrey Bluhm, June 21, 2014 (view all comments by Jeffrey Bluhm)
This book continues the saga of Johnny, from "Only You Can Save Mankind", and his misfit group of friends. While the first book seems tentative, in this one author Terry Pratchett's signature style is more fully on display, with an interesting plot and relevant, intertwined subplots. If "Only You Can Save Mankind" was the appetizer, this book, though a quick read, is neverthless a satisfying main course.
