Book: The Johnny Maxwell Trilogy

This is a young adult book, and I’m not a young adult anymore, but I thought I’d try it. I really, really love Terry Pratchett. I think he’s a brilliant, imaginative, and humorous writer. Who wouldn’t think those things? They’re obvious characteristics of his work.

But I’m sorry, I just couldn’t get into this one. I finally took to skipping pages to see where things went, because I really didn’t enjoy the story, the premise, the way it was worked out, the characters, or pretty much anything about it. It may simply be the audience, though I’m not usually so put off by young adult material. I don’t know.

Try this at your own risk. I note from reading on that there are some people who think it is just as brilliant as the Discworld series. I just don’t get it.
