Terry, with this book you are really spoiling us! Following in the steps of previous books, by revolving the plot around the addition of a real world device in to the Discworld, namely the steam train, Raising Steam has everything! Political intrigue, hijackings, goblins, dwarves, Corporal Nobby Nobs, drama, did I say intrigue?
This is definitely one of Terry’s best books and was a pleasure to read, I couldn’t put it down and took it to every meal as well as my day out to Chiang Rai. Featuring the new character, Dick Simnel, inventor of the Discworld’s first steam engine who, with the help of Harry King and Moist Von Lipwig, must also create a complete railway service!
If you like Pratchett, you will love this! I’ve got to say, 5 months in to travelling, the [amazon text=Kindle&asin=B00JG8GYAW] is the best little gadget I’ve bought with me. Whilst I sometimes read using my iPhone, being able to read properly with the [amazon text=Kindle&asin=B00JG8GYAW] is a luxury in comparison, and I love the way my books sync across both the Kindle and the iPhone Kindle app, so I can seamlessly switch between them if it calls for it!
