The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents

06th Jun 2019

Terry Pratchett.

This was a light read I picked up after my recent SciFi epic. It had Pratchetts humour and skill at characters. This is a take on the pied piper and has a singular trajectory for young readers. I enjoyed Malicia. This one was quiet dark though, and I felt a sadness in Pratchetts observation of the world, it is be racism, or just general unkindness towards each other. Not that it is not warranted, but it is usually dealt with a lighter hand.
