Reviews: Mrs. Bradshaw's Handbook; SPN 13.02

Mrs. Bradshaw's Handbook to Travelling Upon the Ankh-Morpork & Sto Plains Hygienic Railway - A fun little ride through a portion of the Discworld countryside (and various towns). I'll admit that although I love a large number of Terry Pratchett's books, his later ones lost me a little, as they seemed to become increasingly about message rather than character and story. However, the world as a whole remains a delight, and this does a lovely job of expanding on that, with all the sorts of details that can't usually fit into a narrative without derailing the flow of everything. The book is heavily (and enjoyably) illustrated, and includes a number of 'vintage' advertisements.
