Strata - where DiscWorld probably began

When listening/reading this, it really should be remembered that this a very early book from TP. It is complicated - but I enjoy that. What I also find fascinating are the references that show the first glimmerings of the idea of discWorld emerging. And as ever with Terry's books, hidden in there is some very complex and interesting philosophy. Also, as ever, Stephen Briggs is brilliant - he doesn't merely narrate - he performs this book.

amazingly relevant considering when it was written

the thing about Pratchett is that he just knows how to write humans. even sci fi future humans..
this is a great story. love the fact it touches on discworld in a non magical setting.. screw about with physics a bit..nice.
read brilliantly with some tricky accents that are held very consistently.
recommended!
