Jeffrey Bluhm, May 4, 2014 (view all comments by Jeffrey Bluhm)
First of the Johnny Maxwell Trilogy, it's also the least strong. The basics of a Terry Pratchett novel are there, but there's just not much to it - think Terry Pratchett light. Still, the signature humor is present in nascent form, the underlying concept is innovative, and it serves as a solid introduction to the main characters that return in the subsequent two stories. Worth reading to establish that familiarity, and for a quick, enjoyable read.
