Pratchett's Unseen Academicals

I love Terry Pratchett's books and I love soccer. This book is by the one about the other, and yet it didn't work for me. It read like the first draft. Conflicts were hinted at and not developed, information was repeated and the few twists were predictable. What a let down after Nation and Going Postal.

But hey, I've read reviews that rate Unseen Academicals in the top 5 Discworld novels, so, as usual, it's all a matter of taste...
