Book Review: A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett

Title: A Hat Full of Sky
Author: Terry Pratchett
Genre: Fantasy
Publisher: Corgi
Release date: 2003
Length: 352 pages
I got this book: Borrowed it from a friend

From Goodreads:
"Tiffany Aching, a hag from a long line of hags, is trying out her witchy talents again as she is plunged into yet another adventure when she leaves home and is apprenticed to a “real” witch. This time, will the thievin’, fightin’ and drinkin’ skills of the Nac Mac Feegle — the Wee Free Men — be of use, or must Tiffany rely on her own abilities?"

Personal opinion:
This is the 2nd book in the series with Tiffany and the Nac Mac Feegles. I read the first one in my pre blogging days. I can't really follow the normal Discworld series because I always find them a bit difficult. But with this series aimed at yonger readers I have no difficulties. It is a very funny book, like the Wee Free Men. Tiffany is a very likable and resourceful character and the Nac Mac Feegles make me laugh because of all their funny manners. Pratchett did a really good job here, they even have an accent that is written down. This does take a bit of getting used to, but it is doable and really adds to the atmosphere of the book. If you plan to read this book, I do recommend starting with the Wee Free Men. I think this book is for anyone who does like a fantasy setting but doesn't like the long and complicated ones.

I liked it!
