On the ultimate alchemy the invention of motion pictures the greatest making of illusions It may be a triumph of universe shaking proportions It's either that or they're about to unlock the dark terrible secret of the Holy Wood hills by mistake I wasn t under the weather this time and again I enjoyed but didn t love it Maybe I should just save the Terry Pratchetts for times when I m sick It s a weird uirk Or maybe it s just that I love the Watch books but haven t fallen for the rest of the universe uite so hardNote The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook
