Terry Pratchett – Strata

 

With so many other Pratchett books on the market, Strata is just a little too forgettable, and it’s a shame in a way because it shows the author’s ability in something of a different genre. Of course, it still feels very much like Pratchett, but it also explores tropes from science fiction, and shows us what might have happened, had things turned out differently.

According to the book’s blurb, it was first published in 1981 and was “an early exploration of the idea that was to become the best-selling Discworld series.” I didn’t really see that myself, but then I did read this a long time ago, before I’d read as many Discworld books as I have now. But I still don’t think it’s an early indicator of the Discworld – the humour is an early indicator of Pratchett’s style, but that’s about it.

For me, I typically try to rate a book based on my enjoyment of it and not in the context of the rest of the literary canon, and so for that reason I gave this a seven – it was good, and of a professional standard, but it wasn’t great.
