I meant to talk about the latest Pratchett novel I’ve been reading in my previous posting but didn’t get around to it.
I’m half way through “The Thief of Time” and so far it seems pretty decent. At least he’s not made the mistake of using numeric dates so far, unlike in “The Truth.”
I can see he’s been influenced by “The Matrix” quite a bit, and all the silliness historians churn out using the little facts they have or the absence of facts to generate an elaborate model of history.
On the whole, so far it’s quite fun.. how it ends, we’ll have to see. At least Pratchett doesn’t go for the quick round up of the story at the end like Neil Stephenson seems to, which is a good thing.
