Terrific story, but nook version full of typos

Terry Pratchett has, as usual, told a great story. Sadly, Harper Collins released an ebook/nook version full of typos (kindle owners are complaining, too). There are words mashed together on every page; it's nearly unreadable. Buy the paper copy!

While a long-time reader and steadfast zealot of Pratchett's works, his latest three books nearly bring me to tears at times. His illness is becoming more and more evident. Snuff rambled along its plotline in a disjointed fashion, and the characters we have grown so familiar with practically seemed strangers at times in the uncharacteristic manner in which they behaved. Willikins in particular behaves and speaks in a manner completely at odds with every previous portrayal of the character, as the most clear example. Further, the sense of clarity and incisiveness that always made Pratchett stand above his fellow writers so clearly has dimmed. While there were humorous moments, he never really wrung more than a bitter smile from me compared to the previous laughter he once evoked. While I will treasure his books and contribution to the world with all my heart, for all my life, I believe I will not read any future works of his. It would be too much like watching the slow death of a treasured grandparent.

    Um

    I truly love every pratchett book, but this one, I can only say... it was alright. I could'nt get through it in one sitting. So many characters that we've grown to love over the years change so much here, and not often for the better. The story is there but it drags on and on. As a sidenote, Pterry has broken a 30-year tradition and has NOT INCLUDED DEATH AS A CHARACTER IN THIS NOVEL. I laughed a bit here and there but to be honest, reading this was like watching a puppy die of cancer.

    Sample Keeps Crashing My Nook Reader

    Not sure if I want to buy the ebook, considering the sample keeps crashing the nook reader on my laptop. The story itself looks interesting.

    Read it!

    Good times are always guaranteed when Terry Pratchett is behind it. As usual, I didn't want the book to end!

    Solve a Murder on Vacation with Commander Vimes

    Terry Pratchett's Snuff is a solid entry in the Discworld series, but not his funniest. I loved that the book paralleled the issues of slavery and the treatment of goblins. And of course, who doesn't enjoy a good Commander Vimes solved murder, but I felt that the last four chapters could have been cut without the plot suffering. However, I enjoyed learning more about goblin culture and all the fascinating poo references were very entertaining. If you love Discworld, then you will like this book, but don't make it your first introduction into the series. It will be disappointing, otherwise.

    more from this reviewer

    Pratchett is still writing great books -- a must read

    Making Money, The fifth elephant, with going Postal, Pratchett is still writer of merit. A few slips but, I DO NOT CARE!

    I have found another writer to buy books by name only!

    Terry, I will wait till the next issue from Discworld. I now be going the "Color of Magic" next. I plan to start at the beginning and work back through the books I missed.

    SIR Pratchett -- live long and and keep them coming.....
