A full cast audiobook and quite enjoyable. However most of the characters irritated me so much that I was grumbling at them as I drove the car and listened. You will feel like slapping them all at some point – Be warned. The story did follow a number of well worn paths but still managed to be an engaging read. You may well be surprised at the ending – and not necessarily in the way you expected.

Antonia Murphy and family are definitely unlikely farmer transplants from San Francisco to Purua, New Zealand. There are plenty of adventures in rural life and not the gentle, pastoral life they were expecting. Some laugh out loud incidents keep the story flowing smoothly.

This is the first book by this author that I have read but I don’t think it will be the last. Whilst you catch on fairly early as to WHAT has happened it is as the story unfurls that you get the details as to the HOW and the WHY – both becoming creepily apparent. A well-written book – not perfect – but well worth a read.

What a weird book! Like a grown-up, twisted version of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure with wig-wearing scorpions, Gods, aliens and schlok horror thrown in for fun. Strap yourself in for the fun.

Starting with “The Iron Trial” the series “The Magisterium” is like a darker Harry Potter. The motivations of the villain are more complex and we follow our hero through these discoveries.

Discworld is a wonderfully funny disc shaped world carried on the back of a turtle. It is a wacky, weird, hilarious fantasy world. If you like Douglas Adams you’ll love Terry Pratchett’s Discworld!
