As a non-native English speaker, I find the language very challenging to read.
I'd have given up if I didn't use the text-to-speech feature on my ebook reader. ( )

Very cute and made me laugh often. Loved the characters. Actions scenes, particularly toward the end seemed a little confusing and draggy to me. Fun book, but nothing to make me read the entire Discworld series. Might read more Tiffany Aching books. ( )

This was very cute and I think I would have been SO into it as a little kid. The Moral feels more coherent here than maybe in other iterations of it that Pratchett talks about, and frankly I love that Tiffany is allowed to be a kind of heartless, intellectual little girl. Also I love every single one of the Nac Mac Feegle. Will definitely be following up on the rest of these stories! ( )

The Nac Mac Feegle! The Wee Free Men! We willna be fooled again! I really liked this book a lot, and I have my sister to thank for giving this part of Terry Pratchett another shot. If I ever have a kid, I want him/her to be as resourceful and independent and awesome as Tiffany Aching. ( )

Quotations
No wonder we dream our way through our lives. To be awake, and see it all as it really is ... no one could stand that for long.
Now ... if you trust in yourself ... and believe in your dreams ... and follow your star ... you'll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren't so lazy.
“Yes! I'm me! I am careful and logical and I look up things I don't understand! When I hear people use the wrong words, I get edgy! I am good with cheese. I read books fast! I think! And I always have a piece of string! That's the kind of person I am!”
“Zoology, eh? That's a big word, isn't it."

"No, actually it isn't," said Tiffany. "Patronizing is a big word. Zoology is really quite short.”
