Terry Pratchett - Eric

Terry Pratchett – Eric

 

I’m sorry to say that Eric is probably my least favourite book in the Discworld series, and I’m not sure why. It’s the only one of Pratchett’s books that I’ve ever not enjoyed reading, and I’ve read a bunch of his non-Discworld stuff as well. Perhaps it’s just because Eric is a pretty boring character, and he can’t even be saved by the appearance of Rincewind, who was an early favourite of mine.

Eric is actually a parody of Faust, a classic German legend – perhaps I would’ve enjoyed this more if I’d read that, but I’d still say I was reasonably familiar with the tale, and so it would only be nuances that I wouldn’t pick up on. In the end, I just think that this particular novel failed to hit the mark for me, but it might not be the same for everyone. And it’s still worth reading if you’re a completionist.
