Terry Pratchett's "Nation": not the best book by this author, not the funniest (see footnote 1), not the most polished. And yet, it's probably going to become one of the most unforgettable.
I don't know, why. I've trawled the Internet, read articles, watch youtube, all in the vain hope that Sir Terry explains what he was trying to say with the books. You know, about gods and bad things that happen to good people and patriotism. Most of his books are an allegory for something (unless I've been reading them all wrong all these decades), and I'm failing to find the reference among all the pointers. HELP!
The funniest bit is Mau's interpretation of Daphne's invitation to tea.
I am forever indebted to Sir Terry for my new motto: DOES NOT HAPPEN.
For Imo's sake, get that book out of my mind, somebody!
