Per le migliaia di piccoli Niomi che vivono sotto i pavimenti dei grandi magazzini F.lli Arnold, il mondo esterno non esiste. Non esistono il giorno né la notte, il sole e la pioggia: sono tutte vecchie superstizioni. A scandire il loro tempo ci sono gli orari di apertura e di chiusura, i saldi di fine stagione, le occasioni estive e il Natale. Per loro il creatore del mondo è, naturalmente, F.lli Arnold, che risiede all'ultimo piano e che nessuno ha mai visto. Ma ecco che una notizia sconvolgente si diffonde all'improvviso: i grandi magazzini stanno per essere demoliti. Sta arrivando la fine del mondo? Tra fantasy e fantascienza, con lo humour demenziale tipico di Pratchett, ritornano le avventure del Piccolo popolo. Età di lettura: da 10 anni.

My wife bought this for Celyn and I read it to her. There are plenty of good things to say about the book. It has a moderate supply of Terry Pratchett's trademark wit for starters. The nomes (gnomes if you like) are an interesting mix of clever and stupid, and the addition of a lost history and their Leggi tutto
Every now and then I feel a touch of Pratchett withdrawal and have a look to see if there are any of his books I have not read yet. Fortunately he wrote loads so I can usually find something and in this case I have scored the first book in a trilogy! Truckers: The First Book of the Nomes is a fun boo Leggi tutto
It only took me a few pages to realise that I'd already knew the story to the first in the Bromeliad trilogy. There was a stop-motion animation series that I'd watched as a kid, seeing 4inch nomes inhabit a department store is pretty memorable! With each page brought back both vivid memories of the sh Leggi tutto
The first of The Bromeliad Trilogy leading to Diggers and Wings. After Terry Pratchett died I read an obituary that stated when Pratchett reached heaven he was welcomed by Jonathan Swift who told him that he (Swift) wished he'd written Truckers. The book is inventive, witty, and so clever. I found m Leggi tutto
Very, very funny. Surprised to see on Amazon that this book is listed as ages 8 - 10. I first read it in my mid twenties, and enjoyed equally well now in my late forties. You can't put an age limit on humour!
I have been O Deeing on psycho serial killers of late and was in need of something completely different. Went looking and when I came across Terry Pratchett, I had a light globe moment, haven't read any Sir Terry for about twenty years. Went looking in my box of many thing and found Truckers an audi Leggi tutto
Review to come, because post-match euphoria.
The librarian at our local library has amazing taste in books. When she hands me a stack every time I go to the library I know I will like every single one. She is such a motivation for me to read often. This book is the first in a series of three books and was recommended to me by her and she said, Leggi tutto
Μια φυλή μικροσκοπικών πλασμάτων των οποίων οι ζωές είναι σε επιτάχυνση, καλούνται να αντιμετωπίζουν μια απίστευτη καταστροφή. Το Μαγαζί, (όπου θεός είναι ο Αφοι Άρνολντ -έτος ιδρύσεως 1905-) πρόκειται να κατεδαφιστεί και πρέπει να φύγουν. Αλλά να πάνε πού, αφού δεν πιστεύουν ότι υπάρχει το Έξω; Leggi tutto
Pa ja nemam reči! Nemoguće je ne nasmejati se čitajući Pračetove knjige. 😂 Iscrpljeni noumi (mala bića, za koje vreme protiče mnogo brže nego za ljude) od spolja, kreću u potragu za novim domom i tako stižu u Arnold Bros (osn. 1905) radnju, a tamo pronalaze i druge noume, koji veruju da je radnja čit Leggi tutto
