Lovely, lovely hat full of sky...

I just finished Terry Pratchett's newest book, A Hat Full of Sky last night after a marathon four hour non-stop reading session that stretched into the wee hours of the morning (causing me to miss that BRILLIANT game where Germany lost to a second-string Czech team), and all I can say is, the book is just lovely. That was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the last page - LOVELY.

I haven't dreaded finishing a book this much since Robin Hobb's Tawny Man saga, and it's pretty hard to top THAT masterpiece. In brief, this is what the book is about:

It's a sequel to The Wee Free Men. It's about Tiffany, an 11-year-old witch-in-training, who gets help from a smelly race of blue men called the Nac Mac Feegle in fighting an ancient demon-like creature that takes over her body.

It's hilarious. It's touching. And it's just lovely (there's that word again).

Am currently writing my review for it, so stay tuned.
