Holy Wood dreams and calls out to people. People like Victor the perpetual student wizard and Ginger the milkmaid and Gaspode the talking dog. Come to Holy Wood and make it in the clicks and learn what we mean when we call you larger than life.

I have read and re-read Moving Pictures for 30 some years and I am not tired yet of following the starry eyed characters through their paces. This novel brings me a lot of memories and a lot of joy. ( )

DNF Takes absolutely forever for the story to start. Pratchett’s quippy quibbling isn’t enough on its own to sustain interest in these characters, he needs to propel them with a legitimately entertaining story with twists and turns. I waited 262 pages for the other shoe to drop and it didn’t. It wasn’t worth sticking around. Jason Isaacs has a fine voice for audiobooks, but he couldn’t save this either. There are more than a few Pratchett books that end in under 250 pages and this one’s longer than 400. For what reason? Beats me. (p262) ( )

I think this was the first Discworld book that I actively enjoyed reading. Terry Pratchett should absolutely be one of my favourite writers, but for some reason he is not. This book might change my mind though.
The story of this book is really nonsensical which makes sure that the comedy is the most important thing in the book. In contrast with the other Discworld books it did not feel like Pratchett was trying at all. It made me laugh out loud a lot of times.
“You can eat it,” he mumbled apologetically. “If you put butter and salt on it, it tastes like salty butter.”
I mean, honestly, I'm not even sure you can call this humor, but I found this part of the book insanely funny and the quote has been stuck in my head ever since. ( )

This 10th book (in publication order) of the Discworld series was a lot of fun. As a fan of classic movies, I loved all the little parodies of them that occurred throughout the book. The best one may have been the spoof of King Kong when instead of Fay Wray and the giant ape climbing the Empire State building, Pratchett gives us a giant woman and an orangutan (the Librarian) climbing the Tower of Art!

It's probably fair to say STP was still finding his feet at this point although some of the earlier books were stronger than this one. Perhaps I just don't get on as well with the overly satirical ones and prefer the ones where he has something to say. ( )

She wasn't certain what the future held, but coffee would be involved if she had any say in the matter.
Most alchemists were nervous, in any case; it came from not knowing what the crucible of bubbling stuff they were experimenting with was going to do next.
Reality is not digital, an on-off state, but analog. Something gradual. In other words, reality is a quality that things possess in the same way that they possess, say, weight. Some people are more real than others, for example. It has been estimated that there are only about five hundred real people on any given planet, which is why they keep unexpectedly running into one another all the time.
The Discworld is as unreal as it is possible to be while still being just real enough to exist.
The universe contains any amount of horrible ways to be woken up, such as the noise of the mob breaking down the front door, the scream of fire engines, or the realization that today is the Monday which on Friday night was a comfortably long way off. A dog’s wet nose is not strictly speaking the worst of the bunch, but it has its own peculiar dreadfulness which connoisseurs of the ghastly and dog owners everywhere have come to know and dread. It’s like having a small piece of defrosting liver pressed lovingly against you.
"Why is it all Mr. Dibbler’s films are set against the background of a world gone mad?" said the dwarf.
Soll’s eyes narrowed. "Because Mr. Dibbler,” he growled, “is a very observant man.”
