I'm glad if it was the occasion to introduce you to /(on?) Discworld :-)
You're happy that novels can be read at random because it is about the 24th
one in edition order.
I didnt read it yet because it has not been issued yet in paperback edition
BTW French translation is rather good and I happen to know the French
translator, Patrick Couton who is half musician half translator (though I
didn't meet him for some years)
He got an award for his work on Discworld cycle.
But we are slightly drifting o-t ;-)
