A bit simple but pleasant book, which could have dug a lot deeper to give insight but still worth an airplane read.

An interesting idea and, after I got used to the odd flow of the Narrativium, it was one that worked well. Thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the sequels.

The "science of" chapters are filled with anti-semitism and other concerning opinions about oppressed peoples. Which was very disappointing, because the story chapters were entertaining.
Won't be reading another Pratchett book.

Accidentally nicked this book from a friend after I started reading it at a party. That's right, I like to party hard.

This is the first Science of the Discworld I have read, but it doesn't seem to have mattered much. It was nice to catch up with Rincewind in his university role after his retirement from being chased all over the Discworld.

It was also fun to catch up with my old friend Darwin, whose [b:Voyage of the Beagle|183645|Voyage of the Beagle|Charles Darwin||177481] I'd read for my post where I roleplayed him on a New Zealand beach.

I enjoyed the mix of science, science history, time travel and narrative. I'm afraid I didn't understand a few of the more advanced concepts, but I did appreciate the way they were presented in an attempt to be accessible to the lay reader.
