      One of Terry Pratchett s best.I don t often gush for a book, but this one was very good Pratchett s 2004 Discworld story Hat Full of Sky and second featuring Tiffany Aching and her friends the pictsies the Nac Mac Feegle wee free men was a joy to read.I d like to see this made into a film just to see how a clever and talented director handled Miss Level Like all of Pratchett s Discworld books, this is wryly funny and sardonically playful and he takes on some heavy themes like family, tradition, [...]

      The Nac Mac Feegles hae got me tawkin lae em Crivens It s a wee bittie story o hags right enough, the big wee hag o the hills bein the verra center o it all, but it may gi ye a bad case o the thinkin.I dinna like tae stop readin To the the Bigjobs Discworld just keeps getting better and better Keep a sharp eye out and you will see many references to other stories hidden in the telling.

      This is technically a young adult book and yes, I do read grown up books, I just went on a bit of a YA tear after my Powell s extravaganza , but the only reason for so labeling it is that the main character is a teenager It is hard to explain how great this book is if you haven t read any Pratchett, but, then again, why haven t you read any Pratchett His books about the Discworld started out a pun filled parodies of fantasy novels, and have evolved into satires on our modern world that usually l [...]

      Dedicated to the memory of Sir Terry Pratchett, who passed away soon after I started reading the book.I have made, over the past twenty years, many friends among the inhabitants of the wacky disc shaped world sailing through space on the backs of four elephants, carried in their turn by a giant turtle Starting with Rincewind, then with Sam Vimes and his Ankh Morpork guards, Lord Vetinari, the wizards of the Unseen University, the banana loving Librarian, the sentient multi legged Luggage, Moist [...]

      Freakin Terry Pratchett rules What in the world have i been doing with all my life I have so many books to read However i sit inspired by the bravery of Rob Anybody and, therefore, i shall fling myself head first with no helmet fearsome book at a time A Hatful of Sky is a follow up to The Wee Free Men It picks up just where the other left off and continues Terry s incredibly witty fantasy which clearly stand a bar above other fanatsy.

      I can not seem to convince anyone to try Discworld.Damndest thing, I would think that his great stories, great insight, and amazing humor would be an easy sell, but I can t convince most readers I know to so much as read the first page in my copy of The Colour of Magic, even if they re voracious fantasy readers.Maybe it s the fact that I use the words fantasy and funny in the same sentence Most fantasy writers are the most humorless artists imaginable, so it seems like the dissonance is too stro [...]

      For a children s book it has complexity than I would ve expected I remember after reading Tiffany Aching s first book I thought it was just so strange and didn t get what was going on at the end The climax in this one had a similar sort of the thing going but I understood it better this time around Maybe it s because I m older or that Pratchett explained it easier this time, I don t know So here we have Tiffany in the beginning of her witch training and things are not going the way she thought [...]

      Pratchett is brilliant an witty, as usual Tiffany is the most talented young witch teaming up with the greatest old witch, my personal favorite, Granny Weatherwax Deep, mystical, sandy, and very human lessons are learned The Nac Mac Feegle never abandon Tiffany, nor Special Sheep Liniment The quirky side characters are fun Miss Level with her two bodies and circus past, along with Oswald, the obsessively tidy poltergeist We also get a much jovial version of Witch Trials than in history Fun as a [...]

      Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma which reading list to follow it up with Variety is the spice of life, so I ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously This book falls into my LOCUS Y A list.I think I ll always have a soft spot for imaginative young adult speculative fiction and as the good people at Locus did such a grand job with picking their Sci Fi winners, I ll trust them to single out some special y a books too.I ve never tried [...]

      I was going to say, this isn t what I should have been reading I seem to have found myself with a to do list as long as my arm at the moment but it s exactly what I needed.In A Hat Full of Sky, Pratchett tackles growing up in the sense of taking responsibility for things, and understanding the difference between the things you want, and the things you actually do As someone who has spent quite a lot of the last six weeks howling It must be so nice not to have to take the initiative solve the pro [...]

      A Hat Full of Sky is the 2nd book in the Tiffany Aching subseries of Discworld I really enjoyed this one, maybe slightly than I enjoyed the first Tiffany Aching book It had an equally good story, and I thought it was a bit funnier In this book, Tiffany is now eleven and she leaves her home on the chalk for the first time so she can learn how to be a proper witch She travels to the mountains where she ll serve as an apprentice for a witch named Miss Level, who is a bit unusual Meanwhile, a power [...]

      2010 August 172004 August 20Well, Voyage of the Dawn Treader is out, and Terry Pratchett is in for the read aloud As fond as I am of the former, I m perfectly willing to cast it aside Tiffany Aching is a marvelous character who thinks all the time As does Pratchett Unlike Lewis, Pratchett s world is rich and detailed and it works The Nac Mac Feegle are delightful low comedy anti fairies and a good foil to the thoroughly mundane business of sheep farming.As an aside, Pratchett has just described [...]

      Wee Free Men, while still entertaining, didn t catch me on reread quite like it did the first time through A Hat Full of Sky on the other hand was pure magic and everything I remember it being My favorite Aching book.

    16. Annemieke / A Dance with Books on said:

      I quite enjoyed the first book of the Tiffany Aching arc of Discworld, The Wee Free Men, but A Hat Full of Sky steps it up a notch I love how Terry Pratchett plays with words There is a subtlety and then sometimes it is so in your face It is a gift Tiffany Aching is a tad different from the rest of his Discworld books as this is of a middle grade young adult read It is just a bit easier to be drawn into the world I feel.In this book our Tifany is two years older and she is finally starting her [...]

    17. Rebecca on said:

      Tiffany leaves home to learn the skills of a witch, grows up a little bit, is misguided by social pressure, and finds her way back As usual for Pratchett this is so darned heartwarming A huge part of being a witch involves helping people, even the ones that don t know they want need it Along the way she is opened up to a bodysnatching evil that requires some intervention from Nac Mac Feegles.Something I ve never noticed about Discworld books before but realized here, Pratchett at times gives peo [...]

      When I found my first Tiffany Aching book it was I shall wear Midnight and bless Terry s soul for finishing The Sheppard s Crown before he crossed the great black desert I realized I had found a friend There s something truly magical in the way Sir Pratchett uses words and even the smallest keen observation to make a notion so different than it was before, to make you realize something that you knew perhaps all along but hadn t seen it properly until you read these words and I think that s what [...]

      Tiffany is a fantastic heroine, and these are some of my favourite Pratchett books I think that anyone 10 could read and love any of his books although you might be a bit confused about some of the jokes he makes, as I was , but these are particularly about and for kids Re reading them now, they re as funny and adventureous as ever A perfect way to get into Pratchett 8 Please note this review is meant as a recommendation only Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in print, wi [...]

      Tiffany Aching is apprenticed to Miss Level, a witch with two bodies While under her employ, Tiffany is possessed by an evil spirit, known as a hiver Assisted by the hilarious Nac Mac Feegles, led by the aptly named Rob Anybody, she has to exorcise this demon and then outwit this enemy that cannot be vanquished Meanwhile, she also allies herself with Granny Weatherwax, one of the premier witches of her day Amusing romp, like the first book in the series.

    21. Sarah Baker on said:

      I very much aspire to be Granny Weatherwax someday I didn t appreciate the subtleties of her in this one before, but I do now.

    22. Dakota★Magic in Every Book on said:

      There s a reason that Terry Pratchett was such a well known and loved writer He s able to put into words universal feelings and experiences and weave them into a story that is funny, charming, and poignant.

    23. Sanja_Sanjalica on said:

      Even better then the first Tiffany The plot, the characters, everything is great I just love the development of characters.d, of course, the Wee Free Men 3.

    24. Christopher on said:

      A Hat Full of Sky is the next Tiffany Aching book and is set a couple of years after the previous book and is off to study magic with the Witches D In this case though study means observations and enhancing her skills and performing something like a flying doctors service for the local population and at the same time doing battle with a non entity called a Hiver who really really want to Tiffany and is bent on taking her over DThe book also sees the return of many of the characters from the pre [...]

      A Hat Full of Sky is entertaining and fun read about a young witch in training in the classic fairy style In the first Tiffany Aching book she rescues her little brother from the Fairy Queen and becomes the kelda of the wee free men The macfeagle are not exactly like brownies in that if you leave them milk they won t help you do your chores If you leave them whiskey they ll try to help but it won t be the sort of help you d want She realises she s a witch despite all prior claims by witches that [...]

      Well, I m giving this one 5, because if you like Nac Mac Feegles, to me, this is the funniest one of all We listened to the excellent audiobook together, and it had us rolling for 15 minutes at a time with laughter For those of you that don t know them, they are little Celtic Scottish pixie guys who wear kilts and defend the clan to the death They are the fiercest warriors 5 or 6 inches could ever pack into a body The other thing is that my family has been going through the book of Proverbs chap [...]
