Terry Pratchett - Truckers

Terry Pratchett – Truckers

 

Truckers is one of the three books in Pratchett’s Bromeliad trilogy, which follows the fates of thousands of tiny nomes, who live beneath the floorboards of a department store. They’ve been there for generation after generation, and so the outside world is just a myth, at least until they learn that the store is about to be demolished.

For me, this was the best book of the trilogy, and it has all of the hallmarks of a classic Pratchett tale – memorable characters, entertaining dialogue, and a deep, subtle humour throughout it. The story line is also fantastic, and in a weird way, it made me think about what it might be like to live inside a department store. Is that weird? Because even if it is, I don’t care.

This book is also a good book to read to children, and it’s also a lot of fun if you’re an adult. And, because it’s a pretty quick read, you whizz through it quickly too. Go ahead – what have you got to lose? Meet Masklin and his band of (not so) merry nomes as they make a bit for the great Outside.
